Black & Spiro Today


I was up early this morning as my brother Sam came home from Western Australia and couldn't wait to come to see the boys.  He has been away living and working over there for the last couple of months and our entire family is just so excited about him being home for the next 2 weeks.  After his visit I went to see my friend Phoebe and collected some fresh flowers for the shop.  It really makes all the difference having beautiful fresh flowers in the shop.  Actually we've got lots of new things in as well which is very exciting...here's a little photo to whet your appetite! 


Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Hi Anna, Works for me: appetite seriously whetted by that vivid yellow mixed with the blue and white: stunning. The pink and green cushions also look great with it. Bring on Springtime!

You know, if I ever hire a decorator I will bring you all the way from Australia. I love your work, your combinations and your colors, you're just THE right decorator for my house.

I'll have one of those and one of those and one of those. Can I just move there and live in your store? That would be heavenly!

Love the sunny sofa juxtaposed next that raw wood table and all the playful patterns of the pillows and boxes look as though they were having a party!
Enjoy the time with your brother Sam along with those fresh flowers and visits with friends. I love the name Phoebe.

There's just so much to adore in this image:) I can't take my eyes off the blue and white box...it speaks to me! As do the pillows....and the yellow and white lounge...and the books...and the lacquered hand-painted chest...and the tulips. Hmm, as I said, so much to adore.

Hope you had some marvellous family time. Happy Weekend! Meredy xo

I'm sorry I'm not the first comment, because I will simply be repeating what others have said. Love the bright yellow couch! But the wood table and patterns of the accessories also look great, not to mention, the lovely flowers.

Flowers make all the difference! Love the gorgeous items on the big coffee table.

After months of enjoying your blog I am really starting to love blue and white ceramics. You use them so well. Can't wait to make a trip up to Brisbane one day to peruse some of your beautiful things!

That couch with that wide variety of gorgeous pillows is perfect. And of course, the tabletop makes me want to put my feet up and admire the boxes and containers there. Thanks for this inspiring post. . .
