OMG if I was a room!!

Just saw this amazing room featured on Elle Decor Spain's website. The combination of Herman Miller's 1955 classic Coconut Chair, chrome arc lamp, chinoiserie hand painted wallpaper screen, mirrored coffee table, outrageously large floral arrangement and my new colour obsession .... green. Love it all! Maybe not practical but I'm not always practical myself. Thanks to Kim's twin sister for showing me the way to this fabulous room!


Hallie Burton

I want to be a photographer when I grow up! I want to be a photographer like Hallie Burton. This incredibly talented photographer has made me appreciate lighting. Look at those deep dark rooms. The air is thick and rich like treacle in some while white and bright fighting the darkness in others. Beautiful rooms, amazing talent in capturing them.

Naked bodies, drag queens and Florence Broadhurst

More goodies from Nadia at Signature Prints. A few weeks ago we posted about the collaboration between London cabaret club Madame JoJo's and Signature Prints (see it here). Isn't that the most outrageous wallpaper you have ever seen?! General manager, Helen Lennie can be seen with two of the cabaret's famous (or should that be infamous) performers.

Part two of the goodies is that extraordinarily talented body artist/make up artist Emma Hack has an exhibition of her work featuring Florence Broadhurst patterns from Monday 15 October at the ArtHouse Hotel, Sydney. Emma's work is amazing but be warned her website does contain nudity and adult themes.

*A little side note: I am putting my house up for sale this Wednesday so things are a little crazy here. I'm hoping to be able to find some time to get posts done for the week. If not, Jo will be posting as usual. (I'm so lucky to have a blog partner). So if I don't answer any emails this week or if my posts are brief or non-existent, it's because I'm vacuuming for the 324th time.


Jo's place

It's been a busy day today. After a leisurely breakfast in the Valley and a browse through the markets (where I found a lovely little brass urn for $5) I came home to start work on hand colouring some chair prints for my ..... etsy shop! Yes I'm taking the plunge and opening a shop. Still a week or so away but you'll know when you see the widget. At the moment my fingers are stained with Windsor & Newton watercolours but I'm making progress. Keep you updated.
