ABOUT

Welcome to Luxe & Humble!

 I’m Clare, a stylist and self-confessed finder, keeper and curator of beautiful objects, a farmer’s wife and a full time mum to a bubby, bright two year old. I believe in celebrating everyday life, through beautiful bespoke interiors and events that are a reflection of you and your lifestyle.

It all started when I was a girl, watching my mother create a beautiful home. I would follow her to antique and op shops as she searched for that eclectic one of a kind piece to complete a room or fill a cute little nook in our house. I saw how our house transformed into a home filled with special pieces, that were also functional. I particularly loved how she would paint and change furniture to create something unique.

 My love of beautiful things was cemented when, after building a career in marketing (and working for some big organisations like Tourism Qld, Bond University and University of Southern Qld) and decorating an apartment in Brisbane, I took a chance and applied to Nine Network’s ‘The Farmer Wants A Wife.’ The rest, as they say, is history! I met Farmer Scott, a handsome (if you don’t mind me saying so) sheep and cropping farmer from North West NSW, and moved to the farm in 2009.  

Planning our wedding, I found out how difficult it can be to have an event in a regional – remote area, particularly creating something stylish that reflected our personality and our love for our farm and the area in which we lived. After the wedding I set about converting a bona fide run down bachelor pad into a home that is filled with personality and love. The before and after photos show just how much work this was!

And so, Luxe & Humble was born.

My heart beats a little faster when:

  • I can source that special fabric, or find that perfect piece of furniture that brings a whole room together.
  • I spend hours trawling Etsy and Pinterest (don’t know what they are? Never fear, I can help!) for the most amazing napkins that will complement a table setting perfectly.
  • I’m able to help someone define their style, pulling everything together to create a home or an event that feels like you.
  • I can go the extra mile in bringing an event together, sourcing product, suppliers and getting the details right, to WOW your friends and family.
  • I change the way you look at a piece of furniture – everything is customisable with a little vision and creativity!
  • I can show you that Luxe isn’t necessarily expensive – it’s about adding texture, colour, and a touch of smart thinking that doesn’t cost a fortune.
  • I can help my clients evolve their style. What suited you when you were 21 doesn’t work when you’ve got a few beautiful children in tow!

Interior Styling

There is something to be said about a well styled home. It has to feel complete, full and lived in, but without so much clutter that the beauty each piece is lost. Your home needs a beautiful balance of intentional styling and casual living.

 Luxe & Humble’s instinctive decorating aesthetic is based on an eclectic mixing of the past with the modernity of today to achieve a look that reflects who you are as well as who you are growing to be. You don’t need to spend a fortune – its all about being clever, using your old treasures, merging it with the new pieces, maybe a bit of cool upcycling of original furniture, adding colour, texture and pattern to create mood and atmosphere.Trends come and go but a home filled with things you adore will never go out of style.

I can work with you to choose a successful colour palette, incorporate gorgeous fabrics and wallpapers and advise you on which window treatments work best where. We can add a little bling into bathrooms and kitchens, achieve luxe through texture and pattern, and revamp your own pieces. We’ll work on uncovering your own personal style to creating a unique and inspiring home...on any budget!
