Spring (and butterflies) are in the air!

Paper & Typography in a mobile... imagine it catching the breeze!
The mobile reminds me of this spread in the last Real Living

{Have a fabulous weekend}

For the love of all things woven

Love Rattan
Particularly Rattan Pendant Lights...
And especially if they're yellow...
Love Woven Stools with Upholstered Tops
And Chairs with Cushions
{I'd love to be sipping a cocktail in these chairs}
I've used these in this fitout here and here - outside
Oh to be sitting here...

celebrate all things pink

White and Timber Credenzas

We're still planning our renovations.
In fact I really should be drawing up plans but instead I'm "researching palettes"
We will restore the oak floorboards and this will form one of the most prominent features
So it will be white, white, white, charcoal and bronze
I'm thinking any of these lovely credenzas would feel right at home...

I just won my first blog giveaway - wooo hoooo!

I must admit... it's been a pretty fabulous weekend...
Friday night was the beginning of the Estilo Commercial Invitation Bocce tournament. {Estilo invite various Designers / Builders etc to enter a team who play off until the grand final. The winning team members then play off against each other and the winner gets an all expenses trip to Milan for one week to attend the Milan Furniture Fair!!! Last year, I couldn't believe it but WE WON! My team mate won the trip but I still got a great David Jones voucher and a fabulous time.} Anyway... back for Friday night... we won our heat so we will be playing in the final series which is very exciting. Afterwards I partied on with a dear friend.
Yesterday we went out for Mexican to Montezuma's with our delightful friends and came back home for chocolate sundaes and vino.
Today my sister and her fiance took B and I out for lunch to the Adelaide Art Gallery {they won a 3 course meal at the restaurant for four at the last DepARTure which I mentioned here.} It was a lovely meal and the company was fantastic.
Then, after doing a bit of grocery shopping and house keeping I jumped on line only to find that I was the lucky winner of a competition which I mentioned here. I've won a Sophie Isobel brooch right here!


Thanks Sophie

6. Yellow!
