I’m getting a little sick of late nights, it’s very not my style these days! But it just seems like there are not enough hours in the day sometimes (I know I’m not alone here!), and I need my ‘mama’ time after the kids finally go to sleep to answer emails and do thrilling things like pack lunch boxes.
Today I dispatched some cushions to a (happy) client, sourced some new lamps for another, put together some fabric ideas for a living room and was on the hunt for a pair of armchairs for a client in Sydney. I’ve also gotten a few lovely emails from readers of my blog which I really love! I know it’s a soppy cliche but it really does warm my heart to hear nice things from people ‘out there’ who love the same things I do.
Anyway, I’m off but I’ll leave you with a few things I’ve had open on my desktop today to inspire me and make me happy whenever I look up…xx
I just noticed that all these pics use the same colour scheme: orange/lilac/turquoise/a splash of lime! Very unintentional, must just be my mood!
Yesterday I was indulging in a little bit of this much-enjoyed pastime when I saw this gorgeous old place, complete with a little ‘look-out’ tower. I’m still dreaming of what I’d do to it if I got my hands on it..
Am I the only one frustrated by the lack of affordable and stylish homewares in Australia? We have a lot of good stuff, but nowhere near what seems to be available at every price level in the States. One thing I get asked about a lot (and that I’ve wanted to buy myself) is faux-bamboo overhead lighting, which is a little hard to come by here. So I’m happy to report that I’m now offering to my clients two faux-bamboo pendant lighting options, in both small and large sizes.
The large faux-bamboo pendant light comes in white, black, coral, yellow, red and green. Shades come at an extra cost.
The smaller faux-bamboo lantern is available in white and natural. I think it would be great in a bathroom or powder room!
It’s a freezing winter morning here in Melbourne, and I know ‘cos we don’t have central heating! This dining room is so ‘me’; I’m always drawn to rooms that are essentially classic but with modern elements that take away any fussiness. Here, it’s the bare floorboards, the absence of cornices and the modern unframed artwork.
Did I mention that I’m planning to switch my rectangular dining table for a round one? I’ve toyed with this idea for awhile now (will a round table accommodate enough people? Or rather, will it still be big enough for me to use it as a place to sort the clean washing?). I saw a fabulous table on ebay but they wouldn’t sell it sans the 6 ugly matching chairs. So that hunt is still on!
