a brand new site for the place home!

Emily Oster

And we are back! Welcome to the whole new THE PLACE HOME! The website now represents THE PLACE HOME in its entirety - the blog, design assistance and home restoration (coming soon). It also features amazing photos of our home taken by the wonderful Emily Suzanne.

The new site has been a long time in the works and getting it built was a little more involved than I had anticipated. But I think all of the effort and time spent has totally been worth it! A special thanks to my sister and Jeff for all their edits, Emily Suzanne for being such a joy to work with and Rachael for her hard work in helping me to get the site to look and function just as I had envisioned it. 

We are still making a few tweaks but I couldn't wait any longer to share! There is a bunch of new content, images and pages to check out but a few highlights include...

  1. Our Home: The page devoted to images of our house! 
  2. Design Assistance: The page where you can learn more about my approach to design and working together (e-design clients welcome!).
  3. Blog Sidebar: Like the original design, here you can easily search content, follow THE PLACE HOME on social media, look at recurring series and check out the catalogues of old posts (THE BEAUTIFUL HOME, THE FUNCTIONAL HOME, THE HOME EXPERIENCED - still working on getting caught up on these). I also will be adding back our newsletter sign up as well as my picks for daily reads so keep an eye out for those.
  4. About: A new and improved page about my background and how THE PLACE HOME came to be plus lots of cute pictures of Booker.

I hope everyone likes the changes! Monday, I will be back to my regular blogging schedule. Happy weekend!

resource review: THE DESIGN FILES

Emily Oster

THE DESIGN FILES, founded in 2008 by Lucy Feagins, is one of my most recent blog finds. The site presents fresh and interesting content related to all things that fall under the category of Australian design - architecture, art, interiors, graphic design etc. The team of three (Feagins, her editorial assistant and photographer) post daily with every Wednesday being a featured Australian home and every Friday an interview with a local creative talent. The organization of the site is clean, simple and intuitive - a challenge considering the amount of content they put out each week. 

I became a bigger fan of the site when I read this "Biz Ladies"   interview with Feagins on Design Sponge (another great design blog). Feagins explains how she started the blog and how she allowed it to grow organically over the years. Calling her approach as just sort of 'leaning in to it', a phrase and strategy she learned from How To Go From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be by Jack Canfield Feagins explains that instead of getting stuck on figuring out the big picture she just moved in the general direction of where she wanted to go. 

Most recently, Feagins has started The Design Files' Open House in which Feagins and her team take over a real house and create a show home featuring local artists and designers. This year, two homes will be featured on in Sidney and one in Melbourne.
