AHHHH - I have just mucked up a post I had already prepared, am tired and it's almost the end of a busy week. So, to finish the day on a good note, here are three fabrics I have recently specified for a client to use! Which do you prefer? School goes back on Monday and another crazy week ahead!
See you then.......
Are you hooked? This amazing space of under 300 square feet was decorated by the oh so clever Ron Marvin.
Ron's apartment situated in an old hotel, is teeny tiny but big on style and flair. The use of panelling, mirrors and plenty of lamps and accessories go to prove that more is not always less. (does that make sense?? ) I meant to say that Ron has done a wonderful job of putting a whole lot of interest into his room without making the space feel cluttered. Have a look at the floorplan........
He has nailed this tight space wouldn't you say? Perfectly masculine, with a touch of aqua and a pop of yellow......it is, well...... perfectly proportioned ....um perfection!
See the full range of marvelous Ron Marvin's talents here.
Sorry to hassle you, but this is the LAST DAY you can cast your vote for EDDIE AND JAITHAN, so go for it. (top right in case you forgot....thanks!)
It is amazing how I can be distracted, even by the teeniest, tiniest bathroom. That's right, I went searching for beautiful images for Australia day today, and what do I come up with? Gorgeous, green bathrooms. Go figure.....! It is just so hard to keep this gal on the straight and narrow, especially when it comes to rooms this stunning. ( all in Kelly green too, or a variation of ) Enjoy..........
Ah ha! Greg Natale is an Aussie. See, it wasn't so hard to connect all this together! See more of his work here.
For those of you reading blogs regularly (who - me??), you will be familiar with the current challenge being played out at Apartment Therapy. To cut to the chase, there are three designers and three rooms. The designers have each put together a room on display at Bloomingdales in NYC and voting is underway to single out the best room. My favourite creator of all things stylish and also delicious, Eddie Ross and his very talented partner Jaithan, have put together a room after my own heart. Aimed at the busy working woman (tick) with two children (tick) who leads a very glamorous life (cough) this super stylish space just has to win! Put together in conjunction with Elle Decor, Eddie's room is way ahead of the other two in all aspects. It is fun, yet practical, colourful but not overly so and oh so chic! Eddie and Jaithan need your vote however to pip the post so get online and do it now!!!!!! CLICK HERE for the details but don't delay!!
Here's a peak at what they have done.
that splatter wallpaper - too good!
I am more of a ballet flats girl myself....
superb styling as always, Mr. Ross.

Good luck Eddie and Jaithan!
sssshhhhh, I heard on the grapevine via a little birdy that Stuart Membery is bringing his divine range of furniture and accessories to Australia. Well - it is only actually a rumour, but an exciting one nonetheless. For those of you (I should say us....!) in a certain age bracket ( ie late 30's early 40's) you we will no doubt remember him for his fashion, and fantastic slightly Boy Georgish, ad campaigns. I know I grew up on big belts and shoulder pads with a touch of tartan thrown in. To have a Stuart Membery item in your wardrobe was a must and most definitely fashion forward! Scroll forward a decade or two and you will find Mr. Membery has been using his abundant creative talents in the field of design and architecture in Bali.
To say his pieces are good would be an understatement...............Here's a teaser but don't say you heard it from me. Mum's the word - ok?
Turns out Sharnel is the creative and talented owner of The Cupcake Company . Is there any end to the amount of clever blogging people.......? Make absolutely sure you don't throw a party with out a selection of these beauties.......
You can even enroll for a cupcake class......hurry to book for 2010!
Looks like lots of fun to me......now if only I lived in Brisbane.
So I am still surrounded by washing, bags to unpack, mail that needs opening and plenty of domestics dying for my attention! But focus I must on fabric and today I am bringing you an old favourite, KW's Imperial Trellis. I know, I know, it has been blogged about and done to death but love it or hate it you have to admit it's pretty popular!
Here are some images to remind you what the fuss is all about.
Navy and mandarin, two of the new colourways by Schumacher.
The most blogged about hallway ever! Chloe Sevigny's home and matching bike!
(and although it has nothing to do with Imperial Trellis, here is her equally stylish bathroom)
As an interior decorator I have read more interior and design blogs in the last few years than I would readily admit to. (well, I can only use so many excuses to justify time on my laptop!) So, after losing myself completely and utterly in the blog world, I have finally decided to join in on the fun and start up my own. Here's to many inspiring hours while immersing yourself in my world ......enjoy!
EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE HERE.....JUST CHOOSE A FABRIC!
