Black and Spiro Today

The start of our new look appeared in the shop today with new blue and white willow patterned wallpaper behind our front desk which was hung over the weekend (click on the photo to see a closer perspective of the wallpaper). It's so lovely to have a fresh new look and I just can't wait for the rest of our new things to be finished.

Major and Tom

For fantastic old pieces of furniture and bits and pieces Sydney store Major & Tom is a treasure trove for the collector at heart. Used by many Australian stylists the store boasts a beautiful array of rustic pieces only sourced from within Australia. Major & Tom also custom makes beautiful pieces of furniture and is often commissioned by architects and designers to make pieces such as kitchen counters, bookcases, sideboards and tables.

Annechovie @ Etsy

I just love these giclee prints of interior guache paintings by Annechovie available for purchase on Etsy. I would love this talented artist to paint one of my interiors!!! Mmm, maybe I should send her a few photos!!

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!

Relaxed Beach Style - Part 3

With such a big response to my relaxed beach style posts this week I decided to do one more. I too am a huge fan of relaxed beach style. There's just something I love about a relaxed beach house with collections of mismatched furniture and things all thrown together - I think it's the feeling of simplicity and comfort and being in a space which hasn't been over decorated.

A Relaxed Beach House - Part 2

Some more beautiful images of relaxed beach house style via Bueller via Coastal Living. I love the mix of colours used in the rooms and the collections of mismatched things and that outdoor shower is on my wish list for Straddie!!

Beach House Glamour

I just adore these images from House & Garden. To me, they exude whimsical beach style glamour. I could imagine staying in a beautiful hotel by the beach just like this. This house is actually located in Florida and was designed by William Diamond and Anthony Baratta. The entrance to the house above reminds me of old changing rooms at the beach. Just so beautifully fresh and don't you just LOVE the Italian Pagoda Tulipieres on the custom designed trellis credenza in the top image!!

It's finally up - my new look blog page. In celebration of my new look I have posted some of my favourite pink and white images. Enjoy!!


BTW - Sorry about the mix up this morning. The new blog was being uploaded today and I did my Surprise post very late last night and instead of saving it as a draft I accidently posted it and I didn't realise. My mother rang me at 6.30am this morning to tell me so I immediately withdrew the Surprise post until the new blog was uploaded at lunch time. Sorry everyone for the confusion. It certainly wasn't meant to happen this way!!

More Images of Balmoral House

Here's some new pictures of the Balmoral house I completed a month or so ago (refer to posts on Emily's Bedroom & Featured in Bmag again). My client actually emailed me these pictures today. She went out this morning and bought herself two beautiful potted orchids and then when she got them home she decided to move all the furniture around the other way for a change. She's so thrilled that everything is so easily interchangable.
