My kitchen vignette

{Instagram: oliveauxinteriors}

How is your week going? We have been lucky to have a mid-week public holiday here in Brisbane for our annual 'show day'. The weather was beautiful and meant that I could catch up on some cleaning and washing at home. With a really hectic work schedule over the past few weeks, it was lovely to spend the day 'pottering' around home.  Fresh fruit and flowers are always welcome! The little green antique jug was found at the markets in Paris....a photo on instagram was required of this little corner in my kitchen....x

Weekend Living

Where did the week go?? It is fabulous to be out and about enjoying the wonderful weather today. Although, I cannot imagine anything more perfect than enjoying this view for the weekend. These spaces are beautiful. 

Have a lovely weekend....Ax

Pretty Blooms

I've just spent a few days away buying some new pieces for the shop and also for some of our clients homes. It is always lovely to come back into the shop after being away. Before I left  at the end of last week our orchids were mostly closed. They are so beautiful now they are all open and I love them in our large blue and white planter - so pretty! Ax

Relaxed style

We had the pleasure of working with Sue and Justin on their lovely East Brisbane home which was recently featured in Home Beautiful. So we thought we would share a few more pictures. The use of linen, slipcovered sofa's and sisal floor rugs keeps the home wonderfully bright and relaxed, perfectly suited to our Queensland climate.

The outdoor spaces and large verandah's of their home are enjoyed most of the year and therefore they could not be left untouched either. We added this block printed table cloth and some colour in the accessories that can be brought outside when they entertain. I could imagine sitting under this amazing old tree for a barbecue lunch.

Check out the August edition of Home Beautiful for more on their beautiful home.
