Okay, it's official, I have a new favourite, the PIERRE JEANNERET armchair. Jeanneret is a Swiss architect who also happens to be Le Corbusier's cousin (real name Charles Edouard Jeanneret). This bad boy was manufactured between 1952 and 1956 and is mid century modern at its finest, me thinks. Purchasing these is not easy, firstly as they're not common in Australia and secondly the price, here are some on eBay and some on 1st Dibs - not for the faint of heart...sadly for me they are now stuck in my iPhone notes under wish list, its actually nigh on impossible to delete wish list items until they're mine so it looks like I'm going to have to work REALLY HARD to make this happen in this lifetime!
LOVED shooting the home of stylist Briar Stanley for Adore Magazine. It was beautiful and bright as is Briar herself! Her home has a true stylists touch to it, each piece is unique and works perfectly together. My favourite piece was the gorgeous metal and rope chair (above) which was a score from Briar's work on The Great Gatsby set design, there are still a few left over at Le Forge in various colours. Enjoy the feature...
I know I have been RUBBISH with my blog for the past 6 months, this KAWS Companion represents how I feel about myself and my lack of posts, he also represents something I want to buy, surprise surprise! (anyone know where to get them in Sydney?) But I digress, I have been super busy shooting lots of lovely homes for Adore, taking on lots of new private decorating clients and being involved in STYLECT decorating online, all this and taking care of little George Teddy. That is why I am very slack, very rubbish. I promise I'll get better, I have been madly tagging every page in Belle being so inspired, also I'm moving in 8 weeks so its another whole new adventure of decorating on the home front, #chateaupeep will be back in full force.
More importantly, have you seen Hermes has done an Ikat range in their porcelain? Heaven
Here's a little snippet of George sticking his finger up his nose to leave you with...until next time (soon I promise!)

You are going to think I'm insane but ever since I got my Bludot Strut I haven't been able to quite get my office right again. I was going for the Jenna Lyons look but it really didn't work in the space so I'm kind of back to square one, that was until I came across Kate Banazi's latest work below which I immediately snapped up. This drew me straight back to my all time favourite room (above). Lovely Kate is going to make me a matching piece in pink, VERY excited about this!
To introduce some black I ordered Hee Wellings AAC 20 About A Chair in all black from Cult Design and bought IKEA's new Lohals rug for a little warmth, my gold and cream Stephan lamp from Regency Distribution will still work in here then all that's left is a little golden fleece in the form of some Mongolian fur for the chair and accessories!
In my head it looks FAB and a little like this...

I'm developing an obsession with large groupings of objects for the hall table. This is proving costly as evidenced by an 'I went to buy a tiny dish in Dinosaur Designs and came out with $600 worth of goodies' event. To be honest I was first inspired by a trip to my local Seed shop, have you seen the visual merchandising in there? Hello kelly Wearstler object rip off, but they have done a covetable job of it I must say. I'm goin to cast my net wider than DD though, Vinnies should prove useful and West Elm have some cute pottery too, if you know of any good monochromatic objects let me know!
