We had no idea that so many people could get so excited about a front fence! Fences are usually waaaay down the list of “things our gang gets psyched about”, but Soph’s fence certainly caused a stir. #fencefetishRead More
To be quite honest, I thought Sophie had gone completely mad when she told us the location of the land she’d bought to build her dream home. Aaah, where? Doesn’t she know our ‘T minus 5 minutes’ drive’ rule to get coffee? Where’s the closest sushi joint?Read More
Bathroom renovators beware! There are a few common traps when it comes to bathroom renos… and we don’t want you to fall into them! Here’s a 3-step checklist to choosing your products and a tour of Sophie’s bathrooms to see how she picked hers:Read More
Call it a stroke of genius or a moment of madness, Sophie decided to bring the Peppa Hart office under the roof of her Mediterranean Farmhouse to mix her busy business with raising her babes. Soph hated wasting time commuting to and from work, so this space is literally 10 steps from her master suite but all completely seperate…. Soph loves the idea of spending max time with her kids before she starts her work day and as soon as she clocks off in the evening she is straight into mum mode. The office is located upstairs away from the busy household downstairs, when kids and hubby are home the office can work in peace.Read More
Pop the bubbly gang, it's the LAST HURRAH for House 10!

We always knew that the gorgeous Sophie Bell was super stylish, but it wasn’t until we saw her wardrobe in full, hanging glory that we realised just how in love with her unique sense of style we are.Read More
Hey Party People! If you’re serious about entertaining, we’ve discovered the must-have for your house party – a party pavilion, baby!
Outdoor room, cabana, pool house, pavilion – call it what you like, this pool-side abode is kitted out to be the perfect entertaining paradise.
Sophie and her husband love to socialise with friends and family, but the arrival of two baby Bells made going out all the time increasingly difficult. So, they decided that if they couldn’t go out to the party, they’d bring the party to them. And boy, are their guests in for a treat!Read More
Hey gang, it's that time of the week again! Episode 5 is now LIVE!
Life's busy for the Bell family with two young babes, so their mantra is
"if you can't go to the party, bring the party to you!". And that we did!
We think you're going to love the white-on-white pool and sundeck, over-sized daybed, swinging bar chair... and wait, did somebody say pizza oven?!Read More
I’m quick to tell anyone who asks that candles are always top of my list when choosing styling props. They just look gorgeous and are so versatile that they can be used in every room.Read More
Shut the front door, it's Episode FOUR! How on earth are we more than half way through this series already? #hinterlandhideaway #mediterraneanfarmhouse #timeflieswhenyourehavingfun
We know that a parent's retreat is usually right up there on the wish list when creating a family home and we're sure this one will not disappoint! It's got an open-plan bedroom and ensuite, and as if a double shower wasn't enough, there's another on the balcony, for good measure. And it's totally private thanks to this secluded rainforest setting. Note: please don't try this in suburbia!Read More

Soph’s Instagram tags have been going off the Richter scale over the past few weeks as you sneaky peeps have guessed she’s the other half of our #threebirdsxpeppahart collab.Read More
When it comes to the way we like to live in our homes, Sophie and I are kindred spirits. We both love beautiful interiors and we want them to be used and enjoyed by friends and family, the more the merrier. Lana will tell you this is her worst nightmare in her shoe-free home, but what’s a few muddy feet between friends! #orchocolateonthewhitesofaRead More
Hot on the heels of The Hinterland Hideaway’s kitchen reveal, let's take a look at what's on the other side of that huge open-plan space.
Sophie and her family love to entertain so there’ll be no shortage of places for friends and fam to sit, chat and relax in this #mediterraneanfarmhouse, that's #fosho!Read More
Sophie wanted to keep the kitchen light-filled and open, so decided to ditch any overhead cabinetry and stick with below-bench storage. Lucky for her, the concrete island bench is 5-whole-metres long, meaning there’s so much room for storage on both sides of it.Read More

Not only did it take out first place in its category, it beat out large commercial-scale projects to take overall first prize in the Greater Sydney Chapter Awards!Read More
Flashback to week one of Reno School… that’s when I first had my ‘ta-da’ moment. I’d been a keen pinner and saver of images well before I signed up for the course, and had enough inspiration of how I wanted our family home to look, to fill an entire gallery. But it was when I was working through the first Reno School modules and got to the question “How do you want to feel in your home? Insert whichever happy words come to mind here!” that something really clicked for me.Read More
