I was flipping through my files this afternoon and came across this snipet. I designed this bathroom three & a half years ago for a national bathroom retailer. Personally I think the design has stood the test of time very well. Unfortunatley I don't have the original image but my work was featured in booklet for Inside Out Magazine. I selected a Harliquin wallpaper to dress up the showroom and to give the powder room and softer feel.

Here are some happy snaps I took of a job I'm close to completing. I'm still waiting on a few final touches like wallpaper to be installed behind the entry console and the study nook. Lantern feature lighting also needs to go in and a few different size candle sticks for the coffee table and then we are done! I am going to get some professional shots taken of this job so I will be sure to post them.

I just love Christmas and I'm counting down the days until the 1st of December so I can style my home with all my favourite Christmas decorations. With the weather in Australia being so hot around this time of year I tend to stick to a cool colour scheme of white and silver as my base, adding in a different colour each year. 2oo9 will be white, silver and navy blue. The December issue of New Zealand House and Garden has images of this lovely home above all decked out for a Christmas feast. The combination of rusted urns and crisp glass wear suits the juxtaposed design through out the home. One again those cleaver New Zealanders show us how it's done!

Town & Country Style Melbourne Showroom
Today I received a very clever invitation to a cocktail event. Once again Town and Country Style owner Suzette has outdone herself in the creative stakes conjuring up this living invite. Suzette is a girl after my own heart, she always pays attention to the small details. Earlier this year she sent out invitations to the new showroom opening hidden inside an old book bound with ribbon.

This great new design from White Upholstery came across my desk today. Named the George Wing Chair it looks as regal as it's name. I 'm headed down to the trade showroom tomorrow to check out the comfort level. It's sure to pass the test, it looks like the type of chair you can sink into with a good book.

I must be restless as I have been looking at dream worthy property again! This beach house a few hours north of Sydney has all the items on my check list (except the price tag). It's almost impossible to focus on the beautiful architectural elements of the home with a view like that.

In honor of the fabulous horse race and all round great style event that is the Melbourne Cup I thought I would do a post on my favourite cup marque. This beautiful bubble palace for Moet-Chandon dates back to the 2005 cup, however it still rates among the top marque designs. The theme devised by PTW Architects for Moet-Chandon was "bubble-ism" whatever that means? I am still amazed by the Lycra dome ceiling and the surreal environment it created. PTW used some other luminous elements like ghost chairs and mirrored surfaces to highlight the effect.
