5 Things Pleasing - Velvet

I am developing a bit of a crush on velvet at the moment. When used well it creates such an rich texture to a room. I saw a green velvet this week and I'm thinking about recovering my headboard in it.

PLAID concept

I came across this awesome Plaid poof on CB2 and it inspired me to create this concept. It would be easy to have one of these poofs made here, maybe even from an old blanket? Otherwise they ship here!

House of dumplings

Oh happy day! I can now buy dumplings any time I want instead of braving the cold at Left Bank Market or the vege market on Sunday. House of Dumplings has opened a takeaway shop on taranaki street. You should visit for the dumplings, but also for the effort they have gone to for the decor! On Dish they described it: "Kind of like an ancient Chinese haberdashery, but for food. The interior is clad with rough recycled wooden panels and canvas, whilst drawers, shelves and cupboards all appear stuffed with exotic spices and balls of string. Outside, House of Dumplings leans into the street thanks to a hut-like awning and bamboo covering."
