Signing off

Aether Cone

This fancy cone thingee is actually a sophisticated music player. But honestly I don't care about all the things it can do, I just want one because it looks sooo cool.

Room for two

My husband and I desperately need a double desk/computer situation at the moment. We are both frantically trying to finish off work before we head off across the world next week.

Old vs New

You only need to take a look at my website to see I'm an advocate for affordable design.
Sometimes it is easy to get attracted by something sparkly and new, but don't forget some trends have been around before. Here is a perfect example of old vs new. There is so much rattan around - (FYI I love it, I hope it never goes out of style)
These chairs are $150.00 for two on Trade Me (granted the cushions need recovering)

Versus this chair (which is lovely and new) but cost a whopping $550 each. Moral of the story, don't forget to shop around!

The Vintage Party

Wellington based company The Vintage Party was so helpful when I needed to source items for the wedding I decorated recently. You can hire the most beautiful vintage pieces at really affordable prices.  Summer, who runs The Vintage Party, said it all began when she accumulated a few vintage cake pedestals for her daughter's birthday party and it has grown ever since.  

Classic Decor

The latest Resene Habitat magazine came out today with my alternative scheme on page 27 - looking a little sparse but hard to know without measurements - nevertheless you get the idea!!
