Australian Interior Design Awards
24 March 2012
I just spent about an hour admiring all these houses with huge amount of space and light. If all the houses in Australia look like this M. doesn't have to persuade me of moving there for too much longer...just kidding! If you follow me on pinterest you could see the photos flooding into my board, no seriously there is so much more to see where this came from....all house on these photos have been selected for Australian Interior Design Awards. Head over there for more inspiration but I warned you!

This time in black & white. Bride - a long white lacy dress, bridesmaids - black dresses, groom - all in black. Tiny touch of gold, simple elegant lines with delicate details. White flowers, gold rings, letterpress invitations, b&w framed decoration for the wedding table, white napkins and gold cutlery.....classy and simple.
On Sunday we went to Shere. It's a little village not far from us and it's probably the most famous from the film Holiday. Have you seen it? When we got back A. played "the maps" with M. She loves talking about capitals and countries. Her favourite is Australia...What a surprise? M. is trying to persuade the whole family of moving there for couple of years. I have never been, but he swears when I go I will instantly love it. Have you been?
mint green + orange
18 March 2012
There are certain colours or combinations I don't like at first but become to love later. This is one of them...but when it comes to my personal wardrobe I could probably get away with red/orange but pale green - mint green, is absolute no no for me. But it does look divide on her.
in her world

A. is going to be 4 in summer. She loves to paint, play silly games like being a ribbon princess, goes to ballet and loves anything purple and pink. And yes - she LOVES to read. anything and anywhere. If you in London I recommend to take your little one to Tate Modern. We go about once a month and couple of weeks ago we went to see this exhibition. I didn't expect to see almost anything with 3 year old, as she constantly runs around and walking slowly is literally impossible, but it's always great day out. They also have this "sticker room" there at the moment, which was fantastic...I read about it here.

Inspired by spring fresh weather full of green, with a bit of sun but still cold mornings I created this wedding moodboard. Combination of white, grey and green with pops of gold to create a luxury but relaxed feel with quirky touches. I decided to add this regular feature to my blog and called it : "If I was getting married".... I will show you my picks for the perfect wedding, exactly the ones I would chose myself, if I wasn't married already.
photos from the top: table setting, long dress, sparkly pumps, jacket, cakes, artwork, dress, bottles, artwork, peg, just hitched, hanging books, dress, neckeles, space, stationary, ring, grey jacket
I like the mixture of delicate fabrics with rough stones, somber grey and sparkly gold, soft details and laid back but well thought styling...what about you? are you married or single? what was your wedding like?
around the garden
13 March 2012
I have been enjoying the spring weather so much! last couple of Sunday afternoons I spent in the garden, digging, replanting, creating the perfect green room...Inspired by this space, I have a long way to go, but its very enjoyable process. I used to hate gardening as a child, its funny how we turn into our parents as we get older and do and enjoy exactly the same things....

am I really that busy?
9 March 2012
Last couple of days I came across this girl few times on different blogs and I just had to share it with you (incase you have not met her yet). Her name is Ariele. She is a designer and furniture maker living in Brooklyn and the stuff she does-very inspiring. Ariele makes tables, chairs, chopping boards, cabinets and headboards out of reclaimed wood. She also designs and produces lights. And she even designed and built this restaurant for her father! how cool is that? very clever girl...if you like what you see, head over to her blog and there are also articles about her here and here . AND... if you want to read more stories about people who love making things with their hands go over to the project - The Makers (which I mentioned here before but since then they added new people). I haven't made anything more elaborate ( cabinet or some sort of piece of furniture for ages) and now I feel very inspired. There is always the excuse of not having enough time. But really? am I too busy? after reading this I might change my thinking:)...it's so right.
