Last weekend i met without actually knowing it at the time the fabulous stylist Megan Morton www.meganmorton.com; having owned and read (and re read) both her books "Home Love" and "Things I Love" i was slightly flustered as we chatted over the jam and marscapone filled doughnuts that were on offer at "The School" which is run by Megan ; i was kindly offered by Temple & Webster a spot to attend a Photography 101 course (yes i do need all the help i can get!).

As probably Australia's most celebrated stylist i was not expecting someone so friendly, down to earth, beyond helpful and darn right passionate about sharing her years of experience in the industry. What she has done by opening 'The School" www.theschool.com.au which specialises in lessons on styling and craft to both adults and kids is a testament to her love of sharing and dedication to the industry.

I wanted to stand there all afternoon eating doughnuts and soaking up all of the knowledge she had - instead i had to get my head around aperture, shutter speed and ISO...Australian College of Photography here i come! (a tip from Megan). I will also be back at 'The School' pronto for a styling workshop...

The beautiful Megan Morton - she even makes her own necklaces!

The doughnuts which we mingled over...from Flour & Stone Bakery in Riley St Woolloomooloo (Get there people)

Megan's first book Home Love - provides soooo much practical advice especially if you are about to undertake a renovation

There are loads of beautiful images with lots of tips for sourcing in Australia

If you are on Instagram and are not following her yet - follow her! She doles out so many beautiful images and lots of helpful advice!

The School at Rosebery (sounds far away but actually isn't it's only 15 mins from the City) also home to the delicious Kitchen by Mike and gorgeous furniture store Koskela

Image from 'Home Love' - she has white floors..how can i not love her!

And she is all about mixing the old with the new..Bertoia's, Tulip table and French antiques

Another example of the way she effortlessly mixes the old and new - she loves old chesterfields

Images of her amazing house in Lane Cove were finally revealed through Vogue Living (Images from Anson Smart) and The Design Files prior to her selling it (the offshore buyer hadn't even seen the house in person - testament to the beautiful images and decoration of the house!)

Megan's console..i could look at this image forever - such an original and beautiful composition of loved ornaments and Art - Megan has been referred to as a 'House Whisperer' as she manages to ooze the love out of houses

Megan's fireplace (as you can see she was way ahead of the Ju Ju hat trend) you will notice that half of her home's floors are black and the other half white - a self confessed expensive experiment as it cuts down the perceived floor space to use two opposing colours however she wanted to find out which one she preferred! In terms of maintenance she claims it is even game;)

A custom made couch at the end of her hallway; and what stylists home is complete without a Hermes blanket! Above the couch are old post boxes - she is just so creative and cool!

[]

Another creative furniture item which just happens to look amazing - old industrial lockers; the floor length mirror is placed to reflect the light and open up the room; this amazing rug is from Loom in Melbourne

Megan's bedroom - the bed is not surprisingly encased in shelves that are filled with book's and beautiful curio's; you will notice she also collects Dutch styled portraits - she loves the different personalities that they inject into a room
