unmade beds

I hope you're being niiiiiice and lazy over the holiday period (I know I am!) I've polished off two books in five days, bring on the third. 
Don't you love it that these rooms are so lovely that they don't even need to make the bed to look good?

The Warehouse Lighting

Have you been into the Warehouse recently and seen there new range of lighting? It is well worth checking out, all of their funky lights are under $100, most under $50!! And while you're at it, the Farmer's homewares range is getting better too - some very cool rugs at a steal!

Did you see my feature in Habitat by Resene last week? So cool to be included in their newsletter. You can see it here
Also keep an eye out for my alternative scheme in the March issue of the magazine.

Parasol Island office

Check out this very cool office space, for German based production company Parasol Island. Love the positioning of the work spaces and paper lanterns.

Living room concept

Earlier this year I had a client come to me asking for ideas to add interest to her living room without replacing any of the existing furniture. I suggested the scheme below, using black and velvet grey. It is so exciting to see the concept coming to life in her living room:

Advent calendar

 I promise I won't post about Christmas all month but I had to share pictures of the advent calendar I made my husband for Christmas this year. I wanted to give him something special so for each day of December he gets a little gift and sweet from me.

Gin Palace

I decorated a gin night as part of FAWC on Thursday night. The theme was black and white (inspired by the Hendricks gin bottle). I used black and geometric fabrics, glass jars with black and white string, glass lanterns, chalk board tags, relaxed florals, timber serving boards and hits of citris yellow. It was a really successful night!

What are you up to this long weekend? I am going to get crafty. I bought a couple of these Terrariums from Ezibuy and I'm going to get some succulents, and some pebbles and moss and put them inside. Some lucky person is going to get one for Christmas. Yes Christmas - it's not far away!!
