I'm on to my next project even though my others are in various stages of completion (or should that be lack of completion?). I call them UFOs or unfinished objects. I've narrowed down the field on fabric for my Grant Featherston Numero chairs. I have 2 singles and an end chair as shown above. I'm leaning heavily towards the houndstooth but the wide pinstripe is coming second. The suite will go in my office and must withstand our dog Mickey and his never ending search for a comfortable seat so much as I would love this by Diamond Baratta at Lee Jofa or a Paul Smith Bespoke Stripe wool, I don't think so. Now I just have to make up my mind so the upholsterer can get to work.
Libby Cameron opened her own interior design firm after spending 13 years with Parish-Hadley, Inc. Yes, she worked with THE Sister Parish. Her website says she has a love for colour. I think these photos from her portfolio are pretty good evidence of that.

Scott's sent us some photos of one of his latest projects, a house which plays with Moroccan interpretations for the editor of Vogue Australia. It will be featured in the magazine later in the year but we'll have a sneak peek on Monday.
So after a hard day at work (not really) I'm relaxing at my desk and checking out Etsy because I am obsessed when I suddenly came across an AMAZING idea for a coffee table.
It's by Etsy seller Encantado (and go check out his store for oxygen bottle wind chimes!).
