Weekend Cottage

Some weekends I dream about escaping to the country and this cute little cottage, which is currently for sale in the Blue Mountains, would be a perfect little escape. 

Have a fabulous and relaxing weekend & see you next week!

Loving Green Fabrics...

I am loving all the new green fabric & wallpaper collections that have been released the last few months and here is another example - it looks so fresh against these gorgeous white chairs!

Adding colour...

Today I am loving this charming little desk and how a custom fabric shade and the addition of artwork personalises a neutral space.

Shopping for a cause....

This is just another reminder to all my Australian readers that Coles are donating all profits today to the Victoria Fire Appeal. So just by shopping at one of there stores today we can help! If you cannot make it there, Woolworths are also donating profits on Friday 20th. Thanks Vickie for the heads up on this appeal!

Cool & Calm

I adore the pale green colour of Trey Laird's Hamptons guest bedroom. The splash of colour on the quilt adds to the charm of the room. The bed skirt is made using Michael Devine's Petit Fleur Leaf  linen fabric,  available through Oliveaux, it is always a favourite fabric of mine and I love it in this room.

Loving Rubie Green

I have to share these pictures from my trip to Sydney where I attended Michelle Adam's seminar at Design & Decoration on 'Eco Chic'. We had a fabulous time that evening at the gorgeous Ivy's Mad Cow restaurant with Michelle, Hayley & Tracey aka Porchlight Interiors - It was awesome!

We then had desert at the upstairs Ivy Lounge.

I'm Back!!

Hello! I have had the most wonderful Christmas break with my family at the beach here in Australia and then spent the last two weeks in Europe - it feels like such a long time. I mostly was away for work, although I did squeeze in a few lovely days off in Paris.  It is great to be home and so far I have not suffered too much jet lag. 

Thank you for all your lovely emails and comments while I was away. Like most of you all I am addicted to blogs and have missed catching up on all my favourite daily reads!  I will post some more of my photo's over the coming week or so. My break was very inspirational and restful, certainly what I needed to kick off 2009!
