Long weekend reading


It's Australia Day here in, you guessed it, Australia. A time of the BBQ, lamb roasts, cricket, citizenship ceremonies and a long weekend. No WINKS today, no Jo's place post just a lovely long list of 3 day weekend reading. Some are new, some are old favourites, some aren't in English. All will keep you busy with lots of design lolly. Apologies to those that have to go to work on Monday. Think of me as I'm slaving over a roast leg of lamb for my dinner guests. YUM!

OMG I had to share!


I was just web surfing (as you do, thank you StumbleUpon) when I found these! Beautiful tailor's mannequins by Malinki. Fiona Lewis and Lucy Howard are the women responsible for these sublime dress forms. Not much information on the website, just these stunning images and some contact details and the fact that these are available at Tann Rokka which of itself looks amazing! Take the tours while you're there.

Alfresco finesse


Beardsley Weiss are an exceptional multidisciplinary design firm. Their work embraces architecture, interior design, product and furniture design as well as landscape design. I thought that as it's cold and miserable in the Northern Hemisphere I'd feature these amazing alfresco pavilions and their beautiful landscaping. Just a taste of Beardsley Weiss' outstanding portfolio. (Only a few more months of winter left!)

Real estate stalking again


One of my favourite pastimes is checking real estate websites for houses I can't afford especially in my home of Brisbane. Here is another magnificent home, this time in Paddington an inner city suburb full of timber and iron houses from the 19th century. 360 degree views, 6 bedrooms, tennis, pool, 1500 bottle wine cellar. I wonder if all that wine is included in the not insignificant price? ($3.3 million AUD so I'd want the wine too.)
