How badly do you wish you owned one of these and could lie around in it reading a book all day?

Pleasing Spaces - Bookshelves

It makes me so sad to think that one day books will be obsolete and we will no longer have shelves full of them in our homes. I personally have not embraced the kindle or tablet, I still enjoy a paperback and can't imagine ever wanting to do away with books all together.

5 Things Pleasing - Easter weekend

Happy Easter! I hope you've been enjoying the long weekend. Here are my five things pleasing for this week:

1. Coldplay member Johnny Buckland's apartment was featured in the new edition of Elle Decor. I love the moody hues and masculine look.

2. From masculine to feminine - I came across this picture of vintage floral wallpaper used to decorate a staircase and think it looks so sweet.

3. Speaking of staircases, also came across this picture and love the visual effect of the carpet pooling at the bottom of the stairs.

4. I have been looking at architecture blogs this week and came across this hilarious blog Unhappy Hipsters.
It takes images from Dwell and adds captions about the emotional states of the people in the photos - "the blog shines a light on the mirthless style of modern design magazine photography" -  Ingrid Fetell  
I found the blog very clever and I was giggling into my breakfast cereal as I flicked through the past posts.

5. I love this playful dining space and its use of blue geometric wallpaper in combination with bamboo blinds and punches of red and yellow.

5 Things Pleasing 13/04/14

This week a cool new apothecary shop opened up in Wellington and it has inspired me to base this weeks five things pleasing on nature.

1. I love the look of The Apothecary Shop Wellington - smells amazing and filled to the brim with teas and herbal remedies.

2. Lately I have been toying with the idea of trying to come up with my own nature-inspired light fitting which can be made from items found either on the beach or in the park. I have been doing a little research to see what other DIY light fittings are out there and found some incredible examples. I will keep you posted on where I get to with coming up with my own.

Made from a basket and beads (via

Woven wood (AlexaHoltz via remodelista)

 Cardboard baskets (Michael Wolke)

Newspaper (via Design Sponge)

 Fishing basket (via Remodelista)

 Wire (I think) (

Baskets (via sfgirlbybay)

3. I recently put together a scheme incorporating vintage botanic prints. You can buy them relatively cheap on Etsy (Endemic world do a couple of cool ones too). I think they make a great affordable art-work option.



 Pineapple print available on Endemic World

4. This week I met with a rep for Artisan and got to have a nosey at some of their amazing rugs. I particularly love their huge range of sisal which has a beautiful raw natural appearance.

5.  Have you ever thought about hanging baskets on the wall? I am definitely considering it after seeing these pics!!
