Today I Love...


These images above are so fresh and pretty. I really love the thought of that fireplace at the moment considering we are having some very cold weather here in Brisbane this week and the bottom image for some reason (I think it's those tropical cushions) reminds me of Hawaii - one of my favourite places in the world!

Love the glove forms and the barkcloth. Cold enough for you? We're supposed to be subtropical here!

Oh, Jo - I love those glove forms too!! I can't stop looking at them actually - another collection of things special to the person who owns them!! It's too cold for me - I'm dreaming about summer and the beach as you no doubt can see with my beach house posts this weeks!!

Ah, I love the slipcover on that white chair! The ruffle at the bottom is so fresh and fun.

I love the last image too, the florals against the white and large palm tree style plants make this such a lovely retreat when it is hot outside.

Today I love this also. Weird that it's cold and winter over there. Even in England it's hot.

I am embarrassed to tell you that I have 28 porcelain glove forms...eek, obsession gone mad.

Hi,
I just discovered your blog and it is absolutely inspiring!!!

I am doing an open learning diploma in interior design and I now work for an architect. I'm in my 30's and come from a very different career, so I am truly starving for inspiration and your blog "hits the spot".

Thank you!

Beki - isn't that slip cover gorgeous!! I am actually having a slip cover made for my bedroom chair at the moment and I think I will do a frill like this.

Me too Cruststation!!

Hi Di - It is weird that its cold here and hot there - I so dislike Winter - imagine what I'd be like if I lived there!!

The yellow lamp is hot, and I really love the black floors with the white walls. Very nice!
