My Week In Pictures

1. Jen & I had a great time at the Adore Home Magazine 2nd Birthday Party

2. The Adore party was held at PAD, a fabulous store in Waterloo – worth a visit!

3. I popped into my favourite store Shades of Pale in Northbridge to check out these lamps for a client.

4. I’ve wanted to check out luxury furniture store Cavit & Co in Surry Hills for ages – I fell in love with this sofa – linen cushions with a leather back. Devine!

New issues!

Online magazines Lonny & Ivy & Piper have just released their September/October issues. Can’t wait to sit down with a cup of tea and ‘flip’ through them. I really love the quality of the online magazines, they are always so polished and well presented. Which is your favourite?

Movie Houses

I have this really bad habit of concentrating too much on the decor of houses when watching movies than I do on the story line. I can’t help it. One of my favourite movie houses is Diane Keaton’s in Something’s Gotta Give.  Writer, Nancy Meyers is known for other great movie houses like The Holiday, It’s Complicated and Father of The Bride. I think I’m going to need a movie day soon to gawk at those houses again.. What’s your favourite movie house?

Rugs As Art

Last week I visited a rug showroom with a client who is on the hunt for a new rug for her lounge room. While we were looking at samples I spotted this rug, I’d seen it a few times before online but in person it’s just amazing. If you had a rug like this in your lounge room, you wouldn’t need much else to make a statement! I quite like the idea of using a floor rug as the dominant piece of art in the room….

If you need help selecting a rug for your room fill in the form on the free furniture sourcing page and I’ll help find some options for you!
