Stag Decor

The above two images are of the divine Les Granges d'en Haut ski lodge in France. This luxury resort has stunning views over Mont Blanc. A great place to ski and be pampered in the world class spa.
Renowned Melbourne design firm HP&G designed these rooms for the new Fjall apartments in Falls Creek. The timber panels in the bedroom add a sense of warmth and texture to an otherwise stark room. The wooden deer head and antler light accentuate the height of the vaulted ceiling. Those of you who know me, know what a sucker I am for a vaulted roof line like this.

These silver deer plagues can be purchased through me at Oliver Interiors for $495

Panelling Perfection

Panelling would have to take the prize for my favourite architectural detail. I am in the process of having my formal lounge and dining room panelled in a similar circular design to this door.

The combination of the two shades of grey accentuating the detailing in these panelled walls is enough to make my heart skip a beat! Who says grey is dull?

Bisazza Bath

I knew as soon as I saw my client's bathroom and she said she wanted "glamour" that I would use Bisazza tiles in the renovation. While looking through the Bisazza catalouge I came across this free standing claw foot bath, isn't it divine. I'm not 100% sure yet if I'm going to specify the wall tiles in the first or final image, which ones do you prefer?

Bathroom Bliss

I'm currently working on a bathroom renovation for a client with a exquisite home overlooking Sydney harbour. I'm infatuated with this range of console vanities by Studio Bagno, check them out. I have used the vanity in the fourth image before and was thrilled with the results.

Designers Guild

A friend recently gave me a gift from the Designers Guild home accessory and fragrance range. I regularly use the silk cushions in schemes for clients, they really make a room pop with colour. The embroided silk fabric cushions and scented candles are a great treat for anyone.

Town & Country Style

The new Brooklyn Side Table from Town & Country Style

Check out the map of Paris drawn in chalk on the showroom wall. It doesn't get more creative than that.
The newly released Brooklyn range from Town & Country Style features washed grey oak timber. To view the entire range click on their website www.townandcountrystyle.com.au
The castors on the bottom are icing on the cake.

While down in Melbourne for Designex I caught up with Suzette the talented creator behind Town & Country Style. I'm sure you will agree that she has more style in the tip of her little finger then most people have in their entire body.

Melbourne, Shopping Heaven

Somers General Store on the Mornington Peninsula. I wanted to take the antler mirror home with me.

While wandering the streets of Melbourne on my recent Designex visit I came across this irresitable goodies store, il migliore on High St Armadale. The store is painted in hot pink and instantly catches your eye.

look how beautifully they wrapped my small purchase of chocolate dipped orange slices. It's so nice to see shopkeepers who clearly have a passion for their store and produce.
