I know, I know. I'm a little late with your retro fix this week. In honour of Kim who is up to her armpits in last minute jobs before she puts her house on the market I've scanned some fabulous retro chair porn. Once again from the indispensable The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 8, Greystone Press, New York, 1971.
Designer Rugs sent us an email about their new range of rugs by Georgina Chapman of Vixen. Georgina is a fabulously talented Australian fashion and textile designer. We gave a sneak peek of the rugs in our WINKS last Saturday but today I wanted to feature more of Georgina’s work. If boho modern is your thing visit Vixen’s website. You’re in for a treat. Lush patterns and fabrics not only in clothing but in a home wares range as well. Check out more of Designer Rugs’ range as well. Gorgeous rugs!
Stunning art, lucite chairs, colourful suzanis, gorgeous furniture...did I mention stunning art? These are some of my favourite elements from the exquisite portfolio of super-talented photographer Roger Davies. My two favourite photos are above.
Timber houses with iron roofs dot the older suburbs of my hometown Brisbane. Verandas skirt them and wrought iron lacework dresses them up. French doors let the breeze waft in. Most are humble workers cottages. Some are not. Less than 1km from the centre of town in the oldest suburb and presenting an elegant but understated exterior to the passing traffic is this 7 bedroom, 5 bathroom extravaganza. No humble abode this but a homage to all things French and colonial. Black white and beige never had so much umph. Price on application and by negotiation. Means much money, ouch! Click to supersize.
The fabulous Megan Morton sent so many photos to share when we were guest blogging on design*sponge. This is a look at her take on modern spaces. You can really feel the vibe of the clean minimalist lines in her shoots. Thanks Megan. You get to see the insides of some amazing places!
