Election time in Australia

Yes we're in the middle of a protracted election campaign in Australia. Still 2 weeks until election day. I don't want to show political bias so I thought I'd do a post that combined both major parties, the Liberals (right wing) blue and the Labour Party (left wing) red. So without further ado the red and blue room post!

And mustn't forget the Greens who will probably hold the balance of power in the Senate.

Take the time to check out these super talented photographers' sites. I'll be singing their praises in detail soon.


Dog on a couch

Pethra of the Swedish blog Design & Inredningsbloggen wrote to contribute to our 'dog on a piece of furniture' theme. I'd like you all to meet her adorable dalmation Venus, who is a fabulous addition to her decor. (Thanks Pethra! And by the way, if anyone has 'cat on a piece of furniture' photos, we welcome those too, or any other animal for that matter.)


Sara Bengur

Sara Bengur Interiors is a very successful Manhattan-based interior design firm that has been featured in some of the best decor magazines such as House & Garden, Domino, Elle Decor and House Beautiful to name a few. I love that alot of her spaces are white which draws your attention to the beautiful furnishings, like the bed above. Love that headboard!


James Leland Day

James Leland Day is a stylist, a REALLY talented stylist. The following photos from his website are so makes me want to gather all my knick knacks and reorganize them into picture-perfect displays like these. But it would never look nearly this good.


Love this idea

I love the idea of pages torn from a vintage book taped above the bed. Love their time yellowed look and the haphazard (but obviously well planned) arrangement. From the work of Sacha Dunn. More on this fabulous stylist just below.
