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.

Sneak peek - Freedom's summer collection

From my insider at Freedom a little preview of what's in store from Tuesday 7th August.  Summer brights, a range with a coastal vibe and the new Woodlands story. Can't wait to see more.


Vegas Market - part 2

I showed you the Four Hands showroom earlier, but there were so many other showrooms that caught my eye as well. While partaking in the Traditional Home treasure hunt, I managed to snap some photos of pieces that pretty much distracted me from the tasks at hand.

Another of my favourite showrooms was Lulu & Co. I love French furnishings - the rustic vibe, classic and understated. These guys do it VERY well. 

Palecek was also in my top 3 showrooms. Every single piece was absolutely gorgeous and made of the most incredible materials. Unfortunately I didn't end up snapping many photos there. 

Loved the pieces by Fred. Wood and steel case goods with a mid-century modern vibe.
