.... of the March/April Inside Out magazine, especially this Dangar Island weekender. Love at first sight. See more of the latest edition here. (Just realised that the May/June edition is out in the next few days - hooray!) Oh oh was going to keep it until the Easter Reading Guides but just had to let you know that the team from Inside Out have their own blog now. Just a few of their favourite things and lots of insider knowledge.
I have expressed my adoration for wallpaper a few times on the blog, and recently found a company who sells some pretty funky patterns over at 2Modern. "Flavor Paper produces unique vintage and contemporary handscreened wallcoverings that will add a burst of flavor to any environment. Located in the Bywater District of New Orleans, their Flavor Lab uses only the highest quality water-based inks and grounds to create premium wallcoverings for retail, home and beyond. Flavor Paper’s distinctive designs and vibrant colors have caught the eye, and palette, of a number of taste aficionados. Rock stars, retailers, nightclubs, restaurants, and savvy homeowners have all added a little spice to their walls with Flavor PaperFlavor Paper." OH YA, I'm marking them in my favourites.
What a beautiful day it is here today! I love this time of year (early autumn in Australia). Perfect for a little retro al fresco inspiration. If only my outdoor area looked as good as these retrolicious beauties. Hard to believe they are almost 40 years old! Scanned from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 13, Meredith Corporation, New York, 1971. Hope your weekend is exactly what you're wishing for.
P.S. Where's WINKS? I hope you'll forgive me but I'm using my weekend time to work on the 4 mega reading guides for Easter. Dozens and dozens of blogs to explore! Back to work. I'm half way through list number 2.
