Happy Halloween

Halloween isn't a huge deal here in Australia but my little niece is off trick or treating tonight dressed as a (gorgeous) little devil and she is very excited.

Also pop over to The Cherry Blossom Girl where the girls have dressed up as disney villains, they look great.

Have fun Ruby and Happy Halloween to everyone x

On my wish list...

Is a Featherston Contour Chair R160!

I think it would look perfect in my living area. I love it's simplicity and it's clean lines.

The story of how the Featherston came about is actaully quite interesting. It was designed in 1951 by Australian Grant Featherston. One day as he was sitting on a tram, Featherston was fiddling around with his ticket. He folded the ticket in such a way that when the two ends met, it created an interesting curve. The curved ticket became the basis of his iconic Featherston's series of chairs and lounges. Don't you love where inspiration can come from?

I love the blue one but I would have to go for the simplicity of white in my space.

One day...

Back from NZ

I've just got back from spending a few days in Queenstown, New Zealand. Even though I was there for work I did manage to have a brilliant time in this amazingly gorgeous place. Queenstown would be a perfect place to have maybe my third holiday house, just hop over there for a few weeks/months to just relax and enjoy the amazing surroundings {i wish}

We went on the jetboats (you can see our little red boat there) which is a must do if you venture to Queenstown. It's not scary but alot of fun and the scenery is unbelievable.

And this is me! I don't usually post pics of me but I do love that background

But now I'm back and looking forward to catching up on all my favourite blogs!

Good News

Just a message for my friends to let you know all is good with my heart! I had the test today and fortunately I don't have a hole in my heart, yay. Not so fortunate news, I have to still live with my migraines! But you know what, that's ok though I can live with it.

Off for one more test tomorrow {just as an extra for some reason} but I'm all good.

Must visit Ada & Darcy

The new online store that is. The lovely Kellie of the Ada & Darcy blog has the most beautiful online boutique. So many gorgeous things at really affordable prices and perfect timing for Christmas! There are so many things I love but these are just some of my very favs...

So many adorable colourful cushions

Love the base and the shade

A collection of these in the pretty pastel shades would look great all clustered together

I don't need these straws but I'm going to get them just because I love them!

Goodluck with the new store Kellie, it's beautiful xx

Photo Art

I've become a little obssessed with blown up photo's as an art piece in a room. I know it's not a new concept but I've never overally loved it before. I think what is grabbing my attention the most if the colourul versions, I like how they pop in a room.

This shot in photographer Ben Watts home is one of my very favourites

As is this coloured shot in the home of fabric extraordinaire Lulu DK - love it

It's not a coloured shot but I still like it and how it works with the rest of the room

A great way to incorporate some art into kids room that's not too frou frou, it looks kind of cool

Celebrity Home - Claire Forlani

I love the home of actress Claire Forlani and I wanted to share it with you. It was featured in Domino magazine so I'm sure many of you have seen it already but let's just enjoy again.

A sophisticated space, some retro elements but still a great place to relax in or entertain in

This all works so well together, flooring, sofas, the art and the brick wall...

Lovin me some gold

I'd be more than happy to move into this house, would you?

Think Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month {even though realistically it is everyday!} and I'm joining other blogger's posting pink for the cause.

It was only yesterday that I was talking with one of my work colleagues who has survived breast cancer and it is just amazing what she went through, how she came through it and her approach to life now. She's one of the lucky ones. She's an inspiration.

If you'd like to learn more about breast cancer or make a donation here's some Australian sites that would love you to visit them.
