Today






I can't believe it's almost October again?!  Where did the year go?  I have no idea.  We seem to be smack bang in the middle of preparing schemes and quotes for clients for pre-Christmas work.  Before we know it we'll be racing against the clock to get everyone's sofas, cushions, curtains etc. installed before the 25th December.  We've also been working hard finalising our Christmas window displays and our Summer/Christmas online vignette which will go live early November.  Gosh I have no idea how we seem to get it all done!  Crazy is one word you could probably use to describe life at Black & Spiro.

I thought it would be fun to post a few photos of things I worked on today.  The pretty vintage yellow lamp is one I found for a client.  We were playing around with a few fabric options today for the shade.  The fantastic zebra print wallpaper is one I am using in a sun room for a client {I have been wanting to use this paper for so long}.  The pretty blue and white cushion is one we are having made for the shop along with lots more. 

I can't forget my last vase of ranunculus for the season which I picked from our garden over the weekend.  Good-bye pretty flowers.  I can't wait for you to flower again next year!!

That's all from me this week.  Short but sweet. 

Hope you have a great weekend!

I just bought the umbrella of that wallpaper, I would love to have it in my home in the red colour way, I'm pretty classic but I like a bit of kitsch too from time to time.

Lovely posts I'm just catching up on. Love the way the home design is coming along. And I hope to see the Christmas decorations. I've only celebrated Christmas in Winter, so I'm so interested to see how the other hemisphere does it.

That wallpaper is my absolute favorite. I am trying to figure out where in my house I could use it. It comes in a few other color ways, brown and red I think.

Love your blog!
