Wall Candy

The resurgence of wallpaper is in full swing.  Yesterday I went to the launch of Arte’s new wallcover collection Extinct Animals, a collaboration between Moooi and Arte International.  Talk about breathtaking.  The colour palette, textural goodness and the incredible design of each wallpaper is quite simply stunning.  Works of art in themselves.

Love of Lighting

There are so many gorgeous lighting options out there.  Lighting not only adds warmth to a space but it has the ability to create a strong focal point.  I love the simplicity of the oversized Muuto’s Under the Bell pendant, whilst the globe light adds great architectural interest.  And last but not least, I have been a fond admirer of Northern Lighting’s work and the Acorn Pendant is no exception.  Simply divine, as is the architecture in all of these spaces.grey felt pendantsFiona Lynch Desk Light

Still Dreaming

Time flies by and I am still dreaming of a new kitchen.  There are so many truly gorgeous kitchens out there for inspiration.  Too many in fact.  The decision making is taunting me, almost paralysing me.  So for now I will just share with you some of the stunning designs that have stopped me in my tracks.  Kitchen with Superfront Kitchen Kitchen Eclectic Black Kitchen by Workroom Design

Still Hooked on Black

I do love how black has the ability to make most things sing.  From gorgeous black pots, a black textural fence or a couple of old wicker garden chairs painted in a glossy black.  The simple palette and contrast allows the beautiful foliage to to be the star of the show.  How can one not love that?

The Obsession Continues

I have been a fan of all things Rachel Castle for quite some time now.  Her work includes beautiful linen, sweet velvet cushions and artwork that smacks fun in your face.  Her new work is particularly gorgeous…best I start saving my pennies.  Or perhaps a wee tea towel will help me overcome fix.

Here is a beautiful new fabric and wallpaper recently launched by Elitis.  Truly gorgeous don’t you think.  I cannot believe the incredible technology today and what they can achieve from a printing perspective.  Amazing….
