News & Stuff

If you've dropped into Black & Spiro on a Saturday lately you may have bumped into Archie our Golden Retriever friend.  He's the best behaved dog I've ever come across and happily sits wherever he is told to...I wish he'd teach our Ned a few of his good behaviour tricks!!

We've been very busy these past few weeks installing some beautiful jobs including this very special house on the beach which we have been working on for 2 years since planning stage.  Everything turned out just as we had planned and it really does look quite spectacular.  I think one of my (and the client's) favourite things is the wonderful custom made armchair which we had made below using a kilim rug...

And here's a snippet of another house we have just installed.  I was so excited the first time I visited this lovely old house when I spotted the round dining room which we have decorated with mismatched dining chairs and a fabric covered pendant light.

On the home front, our sweet peas are in flower.

And so is the Lavender.

And in other exciting news, guess who is coming to Brisbane?  Megan Morton and her amazing school of talented artists and craftspeople.  And guess where they are holding the classes? Upstairs at Black & Spiro!! We are so excited about hosting The School. If you would like to book a place in one of the classes (which will be held over 4 days towards the end of October) then just click on the website HERE to book your seat!! But hurry as you wouldn't want to miss out because it will be AMAZING!!
