Norman Park House











The Art of Hanging guys do a wonderful job of hanging pictures...I think they almost die everytime they see a booking from me as they know that a cluster wall will be involved!



Every week for the last couple of months my lovely client has been visiting black & spiro picking up bits and pieces for her beautiful home. I was so excited when I walked into her wardrobe and saw all of our black & spiro shopping bags! When we first opened black & spiro 10 years ago we couldn't really afford to have the printed shopping bags so whenever I see our shopping bags now I smile!!











Look at this fabulous wall vase we hung on their cluster wall...I love this!




I've been trying not to post photos of the lovely jobs I've been working on lately as I am attempting to save them for our new black & spiro website which will launch in 2011. But, I had to share these photos of this job I have just finished working on as I absolutely LOVE it! It's so bright and so happy and so fresh and my lovely client {who has just been the best fun to work with} is thrilled...phew, nothing more wonderful than a happy client especially at this time of year!! One of my favourite things in this house is the multi-coloured vintage bentwood dining chairs we painted up for her. Enjoy your gorgeous house HB!

This space blew me away. Love the lampshades (animals and bright colours = win!) and the yarned reindeers are brilliant, too! Thanks for sharing, Anna.

The use of colour is sheer Summery genius, against a gorgeous canvas of a beautiful home, wow wee, i'm in love!! Completely inspirational for me while i'm planning a new home to build. The chairs, OH the CHAIRS!! I can imagine all my children chosing a colour each & painting them themselves. Love Posie

What a fun and fabulous home - your client is so lucky to have you design it! And I love the pansy fabric on the pillows that you had also used on a pair of chairs in an earlier post.

What a beautiful home you have created Anna! I love all of the colour and prints you have used against the white backdrop and the picture wall look amazing. Brilliant work!

Congratulations Anna. It looks like a house with Love. Well done HB you've got great style. Love the kitchen cabinets in the corner under the big, wide expansive. The whole thing is so beautifully Brissie.

Brilliant coloration and superior cushioning. Bravo, Anna.

Amanda said...

I adore the white with all the pops of color! Dazzling!

Stripes-ON-Stripes said...

I love it! Could you tell me what kind of wall cover did you use? It so shiney it almost looks like vinyl but it must be wood! Thanks as I'm planning this look for my home!

Queenie Clutter-Free said...

So nice to see so much color! I could never live in all white or neutral tones. Today I was just thinking about painting a kitchen wall bright blue plaid. Now I just might! Thanks for the ispiration!

Habitat Baby said...

There would be someone wrong if you walked into that home and didn't have a smile on your face. The colours are beautiful and instantly make you feel happy. LOVE the chairs too.

Kirsten said...

Well done, Anna - just blogged about this! http://triplemaxtons.blogspot.com/2010/12/cheery-and-colorful-interior-at-norman.html

Treadgold said...

You really do a have a signature style with colour, love it. The cluster wall prints and colourful chairs bring the whole scheme together. They will love living in this place especially coming up to Christmas. Can't wait for your website too....They are big things to pull together I imagine!

KC said...

That house is AMAZING - and I agree with all your comments about the guys from The Art of Hanging. I had them at my place last week and they were so patient and helpful as I dragged them around my house changing my mind!

I adore reading your blog! Have a Merry Christmas.

Fiona said...

Absolutely stunning, and so cheerful, which makes it even more lovely. I also love the shopping bag designs!

Bethany Dirksen said...

I've never seen so many bright printed fabrics work so well together!

I just stumbled across your blog for the first time and thought I would say hello! I looked through a few of your posts and love your style.

I'm a blogger as well, about the world of art, but my history is in interior design and fashion. I love to hear what people are saying! Hope we get to see more of each other in the future.

Positively gorgeous Anna, so glad you decided to post it and cant wait for the new website! Letitia x

annie said...

I read your blog everyday and am always inspired. I keep coming back to this house--The Norman Park House. I have a similar looking house in terms of an all white canvas...but no color. When I see this house and your blog everyday I must say I am starting to rethink that. I am loving the color. Those bentwood chairs would look just as lovely around my white Saarinen table--but the top of their table is gorgeous as well as the base. I love the cluster of art too!

Sandy said...

You have great taste - I have just discovered your blog - Love the vase - so different...

Anna Spiro said...

Thank you so much for your lovely comments about this house!!
