Interior: Blogger style

Blogger and onine retailer Louise Bell designed a home that's fun, quirky and simply fashionable.

The first thing decorating blogger and online retailer Louise Bell learned when she started tabletonic.blogspot.com was that people wanted a glimpse of her private life. "I thought it made sense," she says, "so I try to open a little window into my world -- even if it's just the mundane!"

Mundane, frankly, is the last word anyone would use to describe the Federation-style home Louise decorated and designed with her husband, Graeme, an architect. Maybe it's the bright bits of colour that burst where least expected. Maybe it's the collections of quirky artifacts she skillfully clusters together. Or maybe it's the devil-may-care attitude. But somehow, every room in her house seems to giggle and shine.

Eclectic lighting Sure, this Floyd Paxton pendant was a splurge, but "It was worth it!" says homeowner Louise Bell. And we agree: standout fixtures make a great focal point in any fashionable room.

Natural elements An ode to nature gone mod: these rustic antlers purchased on eBay pair perfectly with the avant-garde fixture above.
