More office offerings

I couldn’t stop! Once I started looking for office ideas it seemed like my files were full of them. Slick and modern, glam and traditional. What’s your style of workspace?

Clash crash and colour

Brace yourself for the clash of the pattern and the knock out punch of the colours. The 60s and 70s at their not so subtle OTT best. Some are just so right and many are oh so so wrong. Once again these are scanned from that extraordinary style source Practical Decorating Ideas, Ure Smith , Sydney 1973.

Workspace to call my own

I’m moving soon and hope to have enough room for a dedicated office space of my own. So what does a girl do when the opportunity arises? Why she searches the web for inspiration.

Australian photographer is renowned for her inspiring interior and lifestyle images. Her photos have a freshness of style and are featured in prestigious lifestyle publications such as Elle Decoration UK and Inside Out. Perhaps my favourites in her portfolio are the images she beautifully captured for Shannon Fricke’s book “Sense of Style. Colour.” If you get a chance pick yourself up a copy to admire Shannon’s style and Prue’s amazing photographs.

Gotta love Saturday!

Just bought these little beauties for $40 AUS for the 4. Thats about $34 US. Shame that they weren’t all the same but at $10 AUS a chair who cares. A local designer was having a showroom sale and these were buried down the back. Brought them out into the light and they were mine. Now I just have to get them home. Thinking lacquered chartreuse with patterned navy and white cushions. Three for my patio area in the courtyard and one in the bathroom maybe. Also scored 10 metres of outdoor UV resistant upholstery in a thin navy stripe on the roll for $200 and he threw in a lovely jade and bone calligraphy brush for $10. I love Saturdays.
