Eye Candy..

So Im going to keep the words to a minimum because this post is so long already! But I just wanted some share some of my eye candy that I have wanted to post for a while now. As you can see I love my bedrooms and living areas. They are my weakness...

Love orange pillows, the green wallpaper, the print on the stools at the end of the bed, the lamps and the mirror behind the bedhead. So I suppose thats everything!

Marcia Cross's glammed set trailer

I know a few people have already blogged about Marcia Cross from Desperate Housewives trailer already but I absolutely adored it and wanted to share. It has been decorated beautifully by Brian Sanders, the colours look so soft and inviting. It has a touch of glamour which I love! Yet the brown adds a little masculine element to the room. Yum Yum Yum.

The mirrored dressing table its so glamorous and I have loved the style of the stacked glass ball table lamp for a long time. I have a pair in my bedroom and I think they add a touch of glam.

The blue desk chair + white desk + lamp+ photo board= perfection

Seriously who wouldn't want to just hang out in here all day.

and maybe all night too.....

Im so delighted to be given my first award in blog land. My Happy 101 award was awarded my lovely fellow blogger Erica from Moth Design. Her blog is fabulous and her personal style is exquisite. If you haven't checked it her blog already its definitely a must see. The award states that you must list 10 things that make you happy and then pass along to 10 other blogs. So here is my list of 10 things that make me happy, note they are in no particular order (I actually could of had a list of 20, so I suppose that is a good thing :)

7. Fashion
 "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening"
Coco Chanel

Stormy weather..

This post is a little unrelated to my usual posts but I was flicking through my photos and came across this pic that made me laugh. A few weeks ago we had a massive hail storm and flash flooding here in Melbourne and I must admit it was a little freaky! We had hail pelting down that was the size of golf balls in some areas and we literally had rivers running through the streets of the city. Coincidentally, it just happened to be the day that my sister and I thought we would have some retail therapy, but unfortunately that didnt turn out to be the case. The weather quickly turned from pelting hail (pic above) to one larger river (pic below)! We were stuck in this shop for about an hour until the water went away.

Maybe next time I should be better prepared...

Pics form my personal collection.

Designer of the day: Kimberly Ayres

Kimberly Ayers lovely dreamy interiors recently caught my eye.  I love the colour pallets she uses in her spaces. I think the info about her on her website sums up her work nicely, so I thought I would quote directly from her website. "Kimberly Ayres is a California-based designer and the owner of Kimberly Ayres Home, a furnishings boutique and showroom in San Francisco. Dubbed one of the Top Ten Young Designers to Watch in 2009 by Domino magazine, Kimberly continues to define her work by her ability to merge classic design with bohemian elegant style. Kimberly creates personal, highly individual, and notably comfortable spaces with her laidback sense of chic". You can check out the rest of her portfolio here.

I love the bedside lamps and they are the perfect shade of blue. Oh and I adore the bedside tables too!

What a dreamy wall colour! It is paired nicely the black lamp shade and the pink flowers. I must say I love pink flowers in any interior.

Loving the yellow and bright colours at the moment.
