Bold happenings

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Well hello once again! or, welcome if this is your first time in this particular blogs hood!

Thought I would share a couple of  pictures of a recent project that I had photographed.  Its a music room for a young family & as you can see they aren’t afraid of living with colour!

 

Look-see at the handblown glass pendant light we had made for the project:

So there you have it! It was such a pleasure to work on this project! My clients (the loveliest people you could meet) had an idea of what they wanted for the space which was bold & colourful.  I dont think you can say its not either of those!

Thank you once again to the fabulous Martina Gemmola for beautiful photos!

See you back here soon! I have some INCREDIBLE news to share soon of a project I have been working on – its the kind of project that i could not possibly say NO to & is the kinda project that is & forever will be a career highlight & totally surreal. When I tell you more you will understand the surreal-ness!

Until next time!

Texture Junkie – I’m all about the diamonds

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Now this is the kinda bling that gets me saying I do. Oh YES, indeed I do! 

Diamond Buttoning… its just so, SO pretty and I think I can make the commitment to love looong time! 

So maybe its a bit of a stretch to include this in the Texture Junkie category – but it kinda works!

Texture Junkie #2 – Wallpaper. yup, that is textured!

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

So now is number 2 of my semi-regular ‘Texture Junkie’ posts. Today I am ALL about textured wallpaper.

Not patterned though… I’m talking plain, textured and lovely! I love it!

In my humble opinion, textured wallpaper adds a touch of soul to a room! Warms it up without screaming “Yo, check ME out, I’m all over this joint!”

Any way, without further adieu..

kitchen of TV show Brothers & Sisters -I love the show & LOVE Rachel Griffiths! -i have a little fanatsy of doing her house - her being a Melbourne Girl!!

Gorgeous kitchen of TV show 'Brothers & Sisters'

Just a little off topic! Only a small side step really!! Cause technically (just If you wanna get all picky on me!) – I DO still see gorgeous textured walls behind them!!! -’Them’ being the fabulous Rachel Griffiths & Sally Field from US TV show “Brothers & Sisters“.

Its a good show, I dig it! Interesting story – something for all really – romance, politics, death and betrayal!- but what I especially dig is the mamma’s house! and I mean lurve love!  Its quite fabulous really!

Sadly I couldn’t find any better photos to share and show you why its worthy of a mention.  Watch the show and you will see what I mean!

….

Ok, so now I’m going really off topic! I LOVE Rachel Griffiths! She won me over many many years ago when I was a young high school student, excited to not be in class and watching a travelling theatre group perform!

A few years later, I saw her again perform live as a rollerskating dog in a  Melbourne Theatre Company production “Sylvia”.  She had me for life after that!

Who wouldn’t love a rollerskating dog I gotta ask?!

Hmm…I wonder if she will ever move back to Melbourne town?!

Ok, slightly off topic!...Another pic from the set of Brothers & Sisters. Such a lovely house! It kinda hurts me that its not real!

Back on topic now! I want to hang out in each and every one of these spaces.

Yeah, TV set included!!… Wouldn’t be weird at all!!

Texture Junkie: Gold and silver digging

Monday, September 1st, 2008

I am a texture junkie.

It is true, I ain’t denying!

In honour of my ‘TJ’ status, I am introducing the first of what will be a regular post series to Designalogue – Texture Junkie!

In these texture junkie posts (I reserve the right for random regularity!),  I will explore -visually -a different texture for different uses!

So I am starting with something that has been on my radar of late: gold and silver leaf, used on walls.

I love it! I love the simplicity and subtle glamour of the effect!

I’m desperate to use it on a project – though got to be the right place to do it justice!
