Workspace to call my own

I'm moving soon and hope to have enough room for a dedicated office space of my own. So what does a girl do when the opportunity arises? Why she searches the web for inspiration.

Prue Ruscoe

Australian photographer is renowned for her inspiring interior and lifestyle images. Her photos have a freshness of style and are featured in prestigious lifestyle publications such as Elle Decoration UK and Inside Out. Perhaps my favourites in her portfolio are the images she beautifully captured for Shannon Fricke's book "Sense of Style. Colour." If you get a chance pick yourself up a copy to admire Shannon's style and Prue's amazing photographs.

Outdoor spaces

When planning my post for today, the only logical choice seemed to be outdoor spaces. Reason being, I am spending all weekend and Monday (I have the day off) landscaping my backyard. Yesterday we dug out the whole yard to remove the "grass" (I use quotes because it should be grass but instead is mostly weeds). Today my parents are coming over to help, and we'll be laying stones over the entire yard and adding some garden areas. It's a pretty small yard thankfully so this shouldn't be too difficult. I just have to get through the day without killing my father and/or my boyfriend. Both are not the funnest people to do projects with. Wish me luck.


Venus rising

Congratulations Venus Williams on winning Wimbledon!!!! Looks like you won't be turning up for full time work at V Starr Interiors just quite yet. I hear fashion school is an option too.


Gotta love Saturday!

Just bought these little beauties for $40 AUS for the 4. Thats about $34 US. Shame that they weren't all the same but at $10 AUS a chair who cares. A local designer was having a showroom sale and these were buried down the back. Brought them out into the light and they were mine. Now I just have to get them home. Thinking lacquered chartreuse with patterned navy and white cushions. Three for my patio area in the courtyard and one in the bathroom maybe. Also scored 10 metres of outdoor UV resistant upholstery in a thin navy stripe on the roll for $200 and he threw in a lovely jade and bone calligraphy brush for $10. I love Saturdays.
