And before you ask:

No, I dont know how to get the bottoms off or how to get the globes in. I leave it to the people who do!

Lee Broom is the dude in the know!

Enjoy!

 

 

Happy eye candy

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Reality design TV shows have made me cringe at the words ‘wow factor‘. When I hear it used  my face automatically contorts to look like I’ve just sucked on a lemon.

Just saying. I’m a sharer.

Anyway, that aside: this room makes me happy.

The green curtains are whats doing it for me. Contrast with the deep grey walls it makes me make an audible sigh that I don’t know the right word for, but its my ‘happy eye candy noise!’

I’m not entirely convinced about the chandelier though.

But I would like to sit in those chairs & snack on what looks like the largest bowl of salad I’ve ever seen!

 

I’ve lost track of whose work this is, but image found through My Favourite and my best.

Today is my big sisters birthday and to celebrate the occasion- I got me my favorite annual design book!

How sweet am I?!!!

Not just any book you see, its the Andrew Martin Interior Design review -featuring 460 pages of eye popping interior design deliciousness and inspiration.

Referred to around the global traps as ‘the Oscars for the design industry’. I wont dispute.

Its only available in my town for a very short time- once a year, in limited numbers and only from one supplier – I gotta get my hands on it & quick sticks!

and my hands upon I did!

Measuring at nearly 5cm or 2 inches thick -its a no go/too hard for scanning to share the goodness…but rather than totally withholding the oodles of eye candy within, I have taken a couple of crappy snaps to share the love and that will have to do your curiosity until I get around to looking up the websites of the designers featured and showing you some goodies that way.

You were warned in advance – so no petty tut tutting at the quality of  following pictures!!

And still in keeping with the horsey theme…

Tomorrow is my super cute, but not so cute tanties niece’s 4th birthday! Her present is a plum tree.

for real!

She has more than enough toys to play with or not, so fella and I decided to encourage her nature spirit by giving her her very own tree to nurture and look after!

Stay tuned to see how that turns out!

Oh,and happy birthday to you Min!

A whole ONE.

It all happened in the blink of an eye and before I even knew it, Designalogue blog turned a whole year old – today! Happy Birthday blog!

Sorry I neglect you often blog -but then, I never promised you anything else.

So to signify this momentous occasion, some random eye candy! (Cause blog, I ain’t got the time today for anything else!)

Aw, all just so pretty!

And now back to the pretty…

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

After some serious moments I need me some more pretty to look at.

I spied this fabulousness over at Simply Grove and new it was an image I would be happy to look at over and over. Ahh. 

 

Last year I did just a day course of basket weaving with my lovely mumma, we both came away with a small curl-less than a palm size of wool and dried grass…nothing on these gorgeousies! Makes me appreciate the workmanship in each one that much more.

 

Looking at it again – its either a HUGE wall, or a tiny chaise!?!

Tis the season.

“Tis the season to be jolly” Hmm, apparently.

Fa la la la laaaa – um, Ok? 

Anyway, this is as Christmasy as I’m going to get here at Designalogue Blog: 

I just spotted at my local nursery whilst I was browsing for garden stuff , this fabulous silver birch branch Christmas tree! 

 

 

 

If i had me somewhere to store this lil number for the 340ish days that it would not be required as centre stage, then I would get me one toot sweet! Alas, I do not. So it will not be…

A worthy obsession?

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

I am a little obsessed with these lacquered numbers! I want them SO bad and I am in the early stages of hatching a plan to get my hands on em!!

I have NO idea what the quality is like – and if in fact they ARE worthy of my obsession - but its a wooden box, its red , its lacquered = the odds look good!!

The problem is, they are from Crate and Barrel – a store we don’t have that store here in Australia so getting my hands on them will be a lil trixty and take a bit of sweet talking on my part! The current exchange rate isn’t in my favor – so is it even worth it? Its a risk to take when its only one studio pic I have seen.  Are they worthy of my love?

I really only even know of Crate and Barrel through the blogosphere and by it featuring once in an episode of ‘Friends’: Rachel had bought a coffee table and was pretending to Phoebe that she bought it from a flea market. OH I’m sure you can imagine the hilarity that followed! (um – recently watched re runs!!)

Feeling the blue?

I was wonder what it IS that differentiates a a powder room from a bathroom?  (oh yeah – just another of the BIG questions!) So I looked to the inter-web to find me the answer!

It was Yahoo Answers who were kind enough to offer up the word! Simply, its a small room with toot and basin.  Kinda knew it would be. But now I Know!  

 

So I went on the look-see in the inter-web world for a lill bit of powder pretty:

Obviously the same again – but a different view of things!  

I am a bit smitten with this room! I don’t consider myself a girly girl – but I want to hang out here with my fluffy kitten heeled slippers and – well, powder my nose!

This one I found on Katie Did blog. It kinda hurts me to think about it… I just don’t think I could ‘relax’ as one needs to in such a space!

So after that picture that has me shifting in my seat, back to something not as uncomfortable! yet still a little disconcerting:

Ahem, look closer at the above pic. Just a little bit more. Do you see it?  The fish -In the jars.

Apparently Siamese fighting fishies don’t really want much more space than this to live in - Apparently. 

 

I think the littlest room in the house is always a good place for a spot of glam!

So much I LOVE about this little toot!  -the lantern, the mural – the drips! ah, sigh of love…

A bit too much for a small space, me thinks.
