Almost kinda

Friday, November 27th, 2009

This week a kitchen project I have been working on for a while was almost nearly finished.  Finished enough to exhale and do a round of back patting and hi-fives, but not quite enough to do the celebratory dance that goes with the end of a project or share the happy snaps.  Still to come is a bit of ‘frosting’!

But I am completely in love with these beautiful bamboo shelves and the Egyptian ball pendants, and in the mood for sharing!  so share I am:


Stay tuned for more on this soon!

Aww, thats my boy!

I swear to you that I ain’t no stage mother – rather just a proud mother of a furry son!

My boy hit the design world big time today – featuring on the Desire to Inspire – Pets on furniture post.


Um, ignoring the fact that to be included on such a post all you have to do is email in a picture of said pet on furniture – I’m a proud mumma of my lazy boy!

same same…but different

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Recently when I was perusing the interwebs, I came across a great example of that old thing called  ’same same – but different’

This example of which I speak is the boutique showroom of the clever LA based design duo Woodson & Rummerfield.  They think of their retail boutique as the most stylish house on the block.  Having had a look through photographs of their showroom, I wouldn’t doubt that it is just that!

So then, same same- but different… The W&R showroom is a great example of how the same space can be completely transformed into a different space by changing the furniture, colour schemes & wot not!

See:

The first image is a room setting furnished with beautiful Florence Broadhurst fabrics & wallpaper (side note: the fabric on the ottoman is so fabulously gorgeous & a current obsession of mine – I am busting to use it somewhere!)

So, same room, same furniture layout but different wot nots.  Looks quite different to the room above though -yes?!

& repeat……

Whoops! The repeat function got a bit stuck!

OK, so granted the above are still all in a similar design atheistic, but I think you can understand the point of which I make!

the last ride

As its still Spring carnival here in Melbourne town, I am still on the horsey band wagon.
The big race of the carnival was yesterday & I did manage to turn the TV on just in time to see the horses run in the big circle that seems to get so many excited, but turned it off soon after when I saw the winning jockey make air fisty pumping action things!
I have a very low tolerance for the fist pump and on seeing it my automatic reaction is to roll my eyes. I just cant help it!
Anyway, on with the final horsey eye candy for this year!
