Loving this classic style...

These gorgeous images are from the latest edition of House Beautiful which was a wonderful read this month. I love the black and white entry way of this classic beauty! Lots of white paint with black accents and timber...add a few decorative pieces and a great lantern...voila...a wonderful entry.

Mixing some of my favourite pieces...a chinois feature chair, cross stools and great fabrics. Gives this room an updated look on a traditional style. I always love being surrounded by books not to mention they add both decoration and along with the different textures it all works together to give interest to this neutral living room.

Island style...


We have been rearranging the shop this morning and unpacking new things that have arrived in. I am loving so many of the pieces and have resisted taking some of the home for myself! One of our wonderful client's popped in with some beautiful big frond's this morning which we have put on top of our Caribbean buffet. I love how they give an island feel and add's some life to the front of the shop...perfect for our warm Queensland weather as they last really well in our heat.

Thank you also to Ivy & Piper for the mention in the latest edition of their magazine. Be sure to take a look as there are so many wonderful things featured.

Enjoy your Tuesday...Ax

p.s. Oliveaux will be open late for the next two Thursday nights leading up to stop by and let us help you find that special gift. We will also wrap it for you!
