Zuster annual clearance

If I was in Melbourne, I would be running, not walking.  Sale starts Friday!

I love everything about Senkki Furniture.  With their gorgeous retro styling, these pieces look right at home in a gallery (as above in the Jam Factory exhibition).  A pair of bedsides would look right at home in my bedroom!

Shannon Fricke

Shannon Fricke is such an inspiration.  I remember watching her all those years ago on the Lifestyle Channel's production called 'Home', thinking how down to earth, approachable and refreshing her style was.  

Shannon has been busily working away in her little home town of Bangalow (possibly my favourite little town in the whole country!  Jealous much?) and has just released her first range of bed linen.  Totally divine.  Don't you just want to dive straight in?  Very much Shannon's relaxed and inviting style, and totally affordable.  LOVE!

Shannon has also just published a new book called How to Decorate.  My copy is winging it's way to me as we speak.  Can't wait to curl up with it and get planning our upcoming reno's!

The Mod Collective

I am feeling the love for these gorgeous lights by The Mod Collective.  I originally spotted them at a trade show in Melbourne back in August last year, but had sort of forgotten about them. Now I have them in mind for a project.  Hmm, they are pretty awesome.


Armadillo & Co

I've always loved Armadillo & Co's rugs.  I do plan on having one someday.

Finnon Glen

More Doherty Lynch magic.  A friend is doing a kitchen re-model and is using the kitchen in this house at Finnon Glen as inspiration.  Can't wait to see how it turns out!
