Rove Concepts


I love red!

Election results are in for Australia and all I can say is I love red. I have ever since my daddy told me my family stories. No political grandstanding. Time for a celebration of red!

Jo's place

A quiet week here but I did finish my 70s light box side table with more of my vintage bus roll fabric. Still have to hang artwork, make the roman blinds for the window and put the finishing touches to my "cupboard office". Almost there. Wish I had more time. Maybe I should blog less or quit my job? If only!

I'd love to post it. It's rockstar cool!


More lovely Swedish photos

I will never tire of photos of Swedish decor. My heart starts racing and my head fills with all sorts of ideas on how to "Swede" up my home. Hope you aren't tired of them either because here is another post thanks to Swedish magazine Sköna hem.


Dog on a chair apologies

Sorry to everyone facing an oncoming winter. It wasn't very nice of me to flaunt my subtropical beaches. Here's a wonderful Dalmatian on a Swan chair as an apology ;)

It's Saturday here now and I off to vote in the national elections. I love voting, not just to exercise my democratic right but because most polling booths are in schools. What is so good about that? Fundraising cake stalls. Yum!
