For a real life snapshot of my designs & projects…
The reason I love my job...? I get to create spaces for people & their loved ones to hang out in together and make memories. It’s always such an honour 🖤 (just in case you were wondering 😝)
Designed by me & installed by @pandanusgardens #DunbarRdProject x
Just me & my bestie 🖤 #thor (& Tonka as the third wheel 😝)
This winter weather 🙌🏼 PS. I love how our timber fins on the rooftop have weathered so quickly. We used @abodowood Vulcan timber from @austim_timber oiled with environmentally friendly sioo:x for a bleached look with timber protection 👌🏼 Installed by @jacarandacarpentry #home #thelittlewhiteabode #smallblockdesign #224m2 #Vulcan #rooftop

One of my faves (OK, they’re all my faves) but I am a sucker for white concrete & Giant Bird of Paradise.. x #designbyme #sgozuccalahouse 🌱

Exciting little shoot at our place today. Let’s hope the sun comes out for them!! #poolside #plungepool #perthweekend #perthstagram #gardenstyle #smallpools #perthhome
For months (ahem, OK years.. Seb is nearly 2!!) I have been so stuck on how I want to design Sebby’s room. His current situ is a mattress on the floor with his toys piled up in a corner and some random rug #sorrybabe UNTIL... this morning at 3:30am (hello toddler w east coast jet leg) when I stumbled upon @karina_jambrak on this handy thing called #instagram This guy here is going in his room and will provide the inspiration for the whole bedroom space. I’m so excited and can’t wait to make him a little jungle haven all of his own 🐒🌴 (Double tap if you love it!!)
I instantly connected and fell in love with her work, so much so that I’ve put in a custom order for each and every one of the guests who will be attending #THELEVELUPSESSIONS at @thelittlebay_ in September 🙌🏼🖤 If you haven’t already got your ticket, hit the link in my bio or head to www.monpalmer.co/events
🐒🌴... all of my prints are of the highest quality ~ Giclee printed on 310gsm textured cotton rag ✨✨✨ see website for more details. Link in bio x
The first of my #eastcoastresidency trips is done! On the way back home feeling totally inspired after discovering some beautiful places and meeting with old clients and new who share a similar take on the world and align with my kinda style.. it seriously has been amazing.
What I’ve loved the most is having my family by my side to share in all of this. Seb is a little champ and Phil, well, I’d be lost without him. He is my best friend, lover and the most beautiful father to our son. After nearly a decade together, we still make it our #1 to grow with and push each other.. I definitely can’t say it’s boring with him ha!
This trip I’ve been extra aware of our life together. On the Friday before we left, I was instructed by my specialist to go for a neck to pelvis CT scan. My bloods and proteins had come back all over the place the week before, with all the obvious reasons for the cause coming back negative. He wanted to make sure there weren’t any tumours harbouring in my body, playing havoc on my immune system. To me, this hasn’t come as a surprise after a year of fatigue and other things… and, truthfully, I feel at ease as I know I’m in good hands.
However, it has enlightened me in a way. I absolutely love what I do. I love life, travel and new experiences. I was extra present and engaged with the people I met and the surroundings I was in. It was like I was taking huge deep breaths and breathing it all in. It felt so good for my soul.
My results have yet to come in but I know whatever happens - in the words of @marieforleo - EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE. And this is by no means some kind of pity party but instead, a reminder that our time here, for everyone, is limited. Live your dreams now… What have you got to lose? With love, Mon x #liveyourdreams
Love travelling but love coming home even more, esp. when our dog Tonka is waiting for us 🖤 #home #PlonkyTonky
PS. Swipe all the way to the end to see our original kitchen.. 🙈 x
Last week I popped into one of my Byron projects for a look at the work in progress for The Barn and discuss the concept ideas for the main house & pool areas. This spot in Coopers Shoot is absolutely magical ✨ Such a beautiful part of the world.
It rained, there was fog and I felt so inspired. I cannot wait for the next visit to see how the plants grow into each other.... and see the round pool in place 🙌🏼 #hellooceanviews
The Dichondra & Creeping Thyme around the organic steppers is already looking delish 🌿
FYI... if your heading to Byron, this place is available on #AirBnB 🙈 Search The Barn Coopers Shoot x

It has always been a dream of mine to blend work, travel, life and family all into one.. crossing boundaries, cultures & societal rules. This has been a major purpose of mine, one that pulls me through the tough situations and challenges. I love the growth that I feel from it and the freedom it gives me to create my own path. I’m so thankful to be supported by this, not only by my fiancé Phil, but by my clients, trades and businesses I work with who get it. I know it won’t always be possible to have my boys by my side all the time, so for now I’m taking in every second of this work trip x #eastcoastresidency #worklifeblend #design #breastfeeding #monpalmer #travel
