Words cannot describe......

how much I love this house! Greg Natale has done it again. Bold, glamorous and oozing attitude this 1940s family home was renovated and furnished by Greg and his team and is the latest project featured on his inspiring website. It's a sophisticated mix of traditional pieces, design classics, lush colour and pattern, lots of glorious glam pattern. Thanks for the pictures Greg!


Hello Mr Bank Manager

It’s a tedious and mostly fruitless job searching real estate websites looking for the perfect apartment. Not big enough, too expensive, absolutely hideous. Then I forgot to put a price maximum in the search details. The world was brighter for a few seconds until I realised my error. But I did find this beauty. Built in 1927 in the Spanish Mission style “Craigston” was Brisbane’s earliest high rise apartment building. The fifteen room apartment occupies the entire top floor and overlooks the historic windmill precinct parkland and the Brisbane CBD. Now I just have to find the $2.2 million. (By the way that’s $1.8 million US.)

Bus roll brag

One of my favourite things is bus or tram destination rolls. Love the black and white typeface. Imagine my surprise when I opened the autumn/winter decorating and renovating guide from Inside Out. There was one of MY vintage Sydney bus rolls. I produced a series of these a couple of years back and sold them through Shop 73 in James St. All gone, no more except a set in my living room and a few metres I'm saving for a special day. Makes me want to start on the Brisbane bus rolls I have squirrelled away.


I LOVE this house ..... yet another one

Love it, love it. An eclectic boho mix of traditional, tattered, mid century and modern. Just enough quirkiness and a touch of the artist's eye. This is just one of the properties offered for location shoots by the Beach Studios. Can't fault it ....maybe just a little bit more mid century modern.

I love this apartment

The latest Australian Vogue Living features Antony Todd's New York apartment. We've had a sneak peek at Antony's apartment before when we featured his interiors in an earlier post. Sexy and sophisticated but with a casual elegance. You could curl up on the bed or wander barefoot through the salon and feel at home. Love this apartment.
