The year of the dragon

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Day 1 of the year of the dragon. Seems appropriate to post some eye candy  pictures of dragons used in interiors.

Obvious really!

Osborne & Littles‘ ‘Chinese Dragon’  is one of my favourite of all time wallpapers. I’d love to use it in a project (who be the brave?!)

and moving on…

When I was a kid I would’ve flipped out over this wallpaper by Paper Boy (so  excellently titled ‘ere be dragons‘ ) and would’ve loved having this on my bedroom walls.

Instead I had bright red wallpaper with little white flowers all over it. It went so beautifully with my lime green curtains.  Picture all the furniture painted lovingly by my mumma in gloss bright red and a white flokati on the floor to complete the look.  Clearly it was the 1970′s.

hmm…its no wonder as a grown up  I am super stimulated by colour!

And of course  Schumacher make an appearance with their very well loved wallpaper Chang Mai.

Its pretty. But I don’t want to live with it!

According to Chinese horoscopes the year of the dragon is extra special and believed to bring success and happiness.

So I say welcome in dragon! Last year was a very sucky personal one for me and I’m happy to be done with it.

This year is already off to quite an amazing start and the opportunities that have already presented themselves are enough to make me fall off my chair! So welcome dragon & stay a while. I’m happy to make up the spare room for you!

New beginnings

2011, Happy to be done with you!

2012, we are going to get along real well.

A nice way for me to start the year off to a good start was to see my work featured on the HGTV blog in a story on their ‘favourite bright, bold bathrooms’

Thank you HGTV for featuring my work on your blog!

And so for the new year

I’m really excited for the year ahead. I’ve got some really exciting projects in the pipeline and after a few days of chilling out, I am itching to get back into my work. But as I am working on evening up the work/ Life balance thing, I’ve got a few travel adventures planned and some personal creative projects too. So all looking to be a productive year!

Oh, and also I am going to aim to be more regular with my blog posts. I’m never going to be an every day blogger (how - HOW do people do that!) but I will give myself the aim to blog of atleast twice a week. OK… maybe just once a week!

so, we’ll soon see- watch this space!
