Black & Spiro Today




Here's a little shapshot of some things in the shop which I am loving right now. Our new purple inlay chest of drawers is like a breath of fresh air...it's so pretty! I really am having a purple moment! One of my favourite quotes {by Virginia Woolf} which I had hand written and framed in an old white-painted frame - "Arrange whatever pieces come your way". This quote really is wonderful. I love it!

Oh I love the quote so much and the purple inlay dresser is fantastic- purple really should be used more in decor- it's so decandent.

I love the chest of drawers with the camel bones but how do they got the bones into the wood? Sounds complicated.
