Mixing old with new

It is a holiday here in this fine province, and coupled with the fact that our blog interface is being ridiculously slow and I have too many chores to sit around and wait for everything to take forever to load, I leave you with this only this photo.

It is SO CUTE - filled with all of granny's miss-matched furniture and then modernized with a collage of wallpapers by Farrow & Ball, Cole and Son, Christian Lacroix, Fornasetti...

Stalking a sleek white tradition

For those who have lamented in comments recently of the propensity of Australians to tack on the equivalent of a law firm's modern waiting room to the back of an historic home here is a little traditional stalking. All be it sleek and white and cool. Woollahra, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.
