Lily & Oscar

I recently started following an Instagram account which captured my attention, which lead me to an online store, and a Facebook account....and I was soon totally smitten. lointerior is the Instagram account of interior stylist Josephine Ekström, who has the most beautiful shop in Sweden called Lily & Oscar. It has a rustic French/Swedish feel with tons of neutral colours, textures and organic shapes mixed with bits of modern designs for a bit of a contemporary edge. Josephine takes photos around her glorious shop, as well as in her home....and here are some of my favourites. (Oh, how freaking stoked I would be if a store like hers opened in Ottawa!)

Ellis House

A sweet dream, an escape, a wish and a wonder. Welcome to Ellis House, the country retreat of Aussie bedding queen Tracie Ellis. The Creative Director of AURA has fashioned a beautiful weekend escape at Kyneton in regional Victoria. Oh my! Oh my! You can rent it out! I would be in residence every other weekend if I lived close by. Moody, overflowing with country charm (and AURA homewares) and just fabulous! But of course. You wouldn't expect anything else from Tracie.

P.S. The amazing photography is by Sharyn Cairns.

Psssst ....

It's no trick. Definitely a treat. Christmas has come early. Freedom is having a family and friends special for readers in Australia. 15% off November 1-4. Yes 4 days only. Rush instore. Dare I say start the Christmas shopping early. Yes only 54 days till the big day. Or better still if you don't really "do Christmas" (that would be me) it's a good time to spruce up for summer entertaing.

Interior tailors

Original, creative, tailored, at times a little quirky. Soft furnishings are not often associated with these terms but then the work created by London-based Violet and George is not your average garden variety curtains and cushions. Their unique designs are born of their passion for textiles within interiors. Hairy goat ottomans, Spanish flamenco ruffle drapes, men's tailored eames chairs and sexy lampshades are just some of my favourites from their portfolio. And for something completely out of the box (and definitely not for everyone) what I can only describe as a carnivorous bunny powder room. Now that's quirky.
