Visual escape...

One of my favourite coffee table books I own is "My Amalfi Coast" written by Amanda Tabberer. When ever I feel like I need a holiday this is the book I read or flip thru. I am always dreaming of renting one of her holiday apartments on the Amalfi.... this is my kind of escape!

...I do not think I would ever tire of this view!

so many of the apartments have beautiful tiles and stunning architectural features.

You can explore more of the apartments and villas here.
Which one would you choose? Enjoy your weekend....Ax

Curtain Inspiration

What a day! Lots of client meetings mostly selecting fabrics for curtains and measuring up windows. I always get very excited about designing curtains with clients. It makes such a difference to a room and its always fun to work with great fabrics and get a little creative seeing the rooms come together. None of these rooms would be quiet the same without their window dressings! So now I am off to put my feet up for the rest of the evening....Ax

and we are adding a few romans blinds as well to some of the rooms....

Beautiful bathroom...

For me my dream bathroom would always be a place of calm and definitely a have large bath to soak in. I am a believer in the restorative powers of a bath, as well as being one place I can completely escape with no interruptions. I am just about to head home from work and could spend an hour in this bath! I love the green and white geometric pattern and how it really adds to the personality of this beautiful room.

and a morning shower to start the next day!

Fabulous fabrics....

{photo: me}

These gorgeous fabrics and wallpaper are perfect for a girls bedroom. I always love using fabrics to make lampshades and also add them to pendant lights like really adds some fabulous colour and personality to a room. I am working on a few children's bedrooms at the moment for clients and I am having fun putting it all together today....Ax

Happy weekend...

This morning I would love to be relaxing on this delightful deck....

After a long and fabulous summer break I am back blogging this weekend. It has been a very eventful start to the year here in Queensland and as I head into a relaxed weekend I think of all the people in the north of our state who have experienced the devastating force of the cyclone this week. The destruction is heartbreaking....thinking of you all. x
