Colour palette

Sydney architect Scott Weston is well known for his innovative use of colour. His renovation of a Victorian-era terrace is a sea of colour . And what colour! My favourite colour palette at the moment is red and pale blue with accents of black and white.

And here are more red and blue inspirations........

Antlers

The antler craze will surely be short lived - maybe some are already tired of seeing them popping up everywhere. I still love them and thought I'd post some photos of rooms that utilize antlers in a gotta-love-em way.

M. Design

M. Design offers inspiration on a budget. The look is fun, funky and achievable. Punches of colour, the off beat, more than a dash of retro and just enough west coast glam. Molly Luetkemeyer is the driving force behind this LA design firm. Her rooms have been described as "random acts of retro love". She interned with Kelly Wearstler and it shows. Check out the inspiration wall in the second photo.

Starburst mirrors

I love starburst mirrors - the way they add sparkle and a bit of glamour to a room.

Jonathan Adler


Jonathan Adler is a design god. I recently picked up his book "My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living" and I cannot believe I did not buy it sooner. His style is so whimsical and colourful and just plain fabulous - it is exactly the style I love. This book has become my new bible. He has brilliant tips throughout the book, for example:

"Lacquer your front door orange.."
"Lemon yellow is the essence of crispness and should not be overlooked."
"Start a collection: ceramic animals, mannequin heads, other people's high school yearbooks."
"Buy rich ladies' scarves and make them into pillows."
"Put regal furniture in your bathroom. Stack your towels on a Louis chair upholstered in Pucci terrycloth, even if your bathroom is tiny."

The man is a genius. If you don't own that book, go out and buy it.
