It is no secret that I love art, all sorts of styles, colours and shapes. Yet often when I am out and about I see empty walls that to me, are calling out for a little fun, a splash of colour or a peice that tells a story about the owners that live there.
I suppose some people are too scared to hang pictures or too nervous to buy something that they think won’t work. I say forget about your worries, buy things you love, hang them and have some fun. There are some wonderful art fixes out there and they don’t have to cost a fortune. Debbie Carlos is a fine example of that. Her images are super sized, shout personality and I love them. Don’t be nervous, take the plunge, treat yourself…you know your walls and you deserve it.

Now if I had a kitchen that looked anything like one of these, you could be guaranteed to find me in it each night whipping up a storm. Ok, well maybe that’s a slight stretch but I would most definitely have many friends around entertaining me in such a divine space. Could a kitchen quite possibly be any more gorgeous then these? I think not.

They say that the biggest no no in the blogging world is to not post for a week or two, heaven forbid longer. So it looks like I am in big big trouble as my life has quite simply been passing me by of late and as a result my blog seems to have fallen by the wayside. Sometimes I do wonder (but not for long I can assure you) who is reading it. That is the joy of blogging I suppose.
Anyway here are a few bathroom delights that have taken my fancy. I hope they take yours…

The extremely talented contemporary impressionist British painter Jessica Zoob recently collaborated with Romo Black Edition. The result is incredible. A collection of her softly toned, elegant paintings have been printed onto gorgeous textiles, striking wallcoverings and divine cushions. They are quite possibly the most beautiful wallcoverings and textiles that I have ever seen.

I wish that I could own as many chairs as I do pairs of shoes. There are just so many out there that I love. Perhaps I should start up a chair group where we can all swap chairs for periods of time…ok, ok, I know it is a crazy idea. It could be fun though with a group of chair loving people don’t you think? Alright, moving on. I will just have to be satisfied with perusing the net in search of the most beautiful chair. Problem is there are way too many beauties out there and I want to own them all…

This clever wee design appeals to me a lot. It sits within Adelaide, Fraser and Harry’s gorgeous Melbourne home who clearly have a great eye for design. If it adorned my wall it might possibly say………i’ll just fly………off to somewhere exotic of course.

A touch of greenery goes a long way….I love it how beautiful pots can transform often dull, hard areas into delightful spaces. The contrasting textures and patterns of the greenery adds a softness to the space whilst varying tones adds interest and depth to the scheme overall.

It’s been a great week. Lots happening of course but this week we nailed a couple of rugs for a client’s kitchen/dining space and I am very excited to say the least. The Ivy House , (who have been amazing), supply Armadillo Rugs which I am completely in love with. The best thing is that you get to play around with the colours so that you end up with something that you truly love. What more could you want?
Well acutally it has been one of those months where things just seem to be so busy that I think my head may just blow its top. But each time I check it’s still firmly planted onto my shoulders. Small miracles really. And little things happen that make me realise that it is all worthwhile…like the couple I met last week who are just so, so lovely…they made me realise again why I love doing what I do. Or my gorgeous friend and her ever so gorgeous husband and their overwhelming talent, they are truly magical. Anyway this post doesn’t really relate to anything at all, just merely some things that bring me joy like so many of the people in my life…

We need to paint our house. I want it to be black. Some people look at me strangely. Ok so maybe it’s not that practical but who needs to be practical. Look at these lovely homes, so simple, so beautiful. How can I not?
