Hand over the keys please.

In the current issue of Australian shelter mag Inside Out, there is photographic proof of what I have long suspected is true. The Truman show is real, and yes, I am the star of it.

Can you pick it up where you are in the world?!!! Do you get reception?

Anyway, the photographic proof of which I speak is a house that has long been in MY head: the location – Byron Bay Hinterland (soooo beautiful there), the of view of rolling hills I desire to stare out at, just the whole sensibility of the joint being a well thought out sustainable build and I even dig the frisky red rabbit keeping an eye on things!

If it turns out the Truman/Camilla show isn’t a happening (ah, doubt that!), then the architect and current* home owner  Sharon Fraser and I are kindred spirits cause I love it so.

Are sunken lounges making a come back?

Yeah, those are views I could look at.

Not such a bad scene to wake up to

Now this, is very cool indeed.

If you are wanting the TV to be the focus of the room its just like magic-now you see it… but suddenly there is more to life and you don’t want the tele to be the focus of all – so whoosh and kaboom and now you don’t!

If that doesn’t quite explain to your liking, then try this instead: Using a mechanical rope and pulley system, the painting moves up or down to cover the TV screen or not. The concept is way impressive anyway – but then in this case its a painting of fish – well, that just rocks my world people!

This rocks my world

Obviously for those who know me once I move in there will be many many more cushions (Yes, this yet another admission of ‘interior’ addictions I have)  undoubtedly  more colour and general stuff -you know a nick-nak or two!!! But I am confident it will still do it all justice!

And so how about a round of applause for my first scan job here at Designalogue!!!

Oh thank you, thank you! Now if I can only work out how to capture an image in a site using Flash……. (you people seem to do so, but I no can!)

*current – consider this marching orders! I’m moving in – oh but don’t freak out or anything i will be nice about it all!!

Fish. Again!

OK, so I didn’t out-rightly admit it the last time I posted about it…so I guess I should fess up now before you think I’m weird!!! But…I have a bit of a fish fetish! NOT in a creepy left of centre type way!!! Mine is purely innocent and artful!!! (But who am I to judge!  So if you have found your way here through googling fish fetish, then please, stay. Have a look around -maybe you will like what you see?!!!)

So what I’m into is the fish form used in art! See, innocent isn’t it!!! – Ain’t I!!!!

Maybe its something about the freedom of their form?

Eh. what ever, I just really dig em!

These are the latest of my slowly growing collection! I found them over on etsy and just HAD to have them! Loved what I saw – So I got me some!

Oddly, I don’t like owning real fish! They annoy me!!!

Lost for words…

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

I am not a person who is often lost for words! But I am currently finding myself with a bit of word salad (thank you Boston legal!) after looking through the incredible hand painted fabrics and wallpaper’s of De Gournay

Just stunning…

Fishy Business

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

I am loving the ‘fishy’ trend that is making an appearance in the interiors and home wares world!

I find the fluidity of the fish form to be relaxing and calming to look at. OK, with exception of the scary sword type fish on pic 3 & 4!
