Wall decals

Wall decals are such a great idea - particularly for renters. They make such a statement to walls that you may not be able to paint or do anything to otherwise. Or for someone just looking for something a little different. I have been thinking of some (in a sort of damask-type pattern in black) for the doors of my Ikea billy bookcase to spice them up a bit (they're the plastic insert doors as opposed to the more expensive glass ones I should have bought). There's so much you can do with these - use 'em on a wall, doors, car, family dog...anything :) Here are some used in the traditional way:

I love this apartment

Crisp black and white with the zing of lemon. This is the outstanding apartment of London architect Haifa Hammani. Light floods in on rooms full of design classics. Lush, liveable and totally inspiring.

Australian glam

A little glam goes a long way. When we want to be girly but sophisticated as well. I love the aboriginal art incorporated with the mirrored side table, canape and lucite lamp.

Wallpaper...you know you all love it!!!!

I love wallpaper too....and would love to use some (anywhere!) but at the moment I don't want to put that much effort into something when I plan on selling my house in the near future (wallpaper would not be a good selling feature either). So instead I search out all sorts of photos on the internet of gorgeous wallpapers and I hope that when the day comes when I decide to try some, that it won't have gone back out of style. So here's some I love from UK tile, wallpaper and flooring designer Dominic Crinson:




Here's one for sh*ts and giggles (can't imagine actually using this one):

Kenneth Brown's beach retreat

Kenneth Brown is the host of ReDesign, on HGTV. I have to say it's never been one of my favourite shows. I'm never really wowed by the results. Then I stumbled upon his beach retreat in Santa Monica featured in Western Interiors & Design magazine. I totally changed my mind about him - his place is amazing! Look for yourselves (from Kenneth Brown Design):
