Gotta Love those Stripes

I love a good stripe! So simple, so graphic. Black & white stripes are my favourite...

But coloured stripes are not so bad either...

In a cushion, and a rug...

Mix them up...

Textured stripes...

And let's not forget the famous and delectable Missoni stripe...

Indian Inspiration

It's no secret that I love India with it's vibrant colours and intricate patterns and design. The Indian influence is obvious in this beautiful bedroom with it's bone inlay bedside table and Indian quilt.


I was very excited to receive a shipment of Indian Kantha quilts this week. They are a lightweight cotton quilt, bedspread or throw in a range of gorgeous colours and designs. Each one is handmade by piecing vintage sari's together and then stitching all over by hand with a delicate running stitch called a Kantha stitch.

Team a Kantha quilt with one of our stunning bone inlay pieces to create your own little slice of Indian heaven.

Bonnie Tsang & Bri Emery

My post yesterday featured the groovy home of Victoria Smith. The photographer that shot her home was Bonnie Tsang, and I have a bit of photographer crush on her - love, love, love her work. She captures all the details that give the house it's heart. I'm going to show you my favourite of Bonnie's interior photo shoots - the home of inspirational designer and blogger, Bri Emery... I adore it!

San Francisco Girl

Have you visited the blog of Victoria Smith, better known as sf girl by bay? It's a great read and filled with inspirational interiors, including her own home - my kind of colour scheme, black, white, warm wood and pops of colour. And you've gotta love a girl with a bar cart
(I've got one on my list!).

Floral on Floral

Most of you know by now that I'm not afraid of pattern & colour. In fact, I thrive on it, and I love it when people clash their patterns. Just like these glorious examples of floral on floral.
