First shoot back after baby was at this glorious Avalon home up in the trees for Adore Magazine with Hannah Blackmore Photography - the home owner Zoe is one half of The Wedding Nest company who provide all the lovely things you see in her home on their bridal registry. I am really into a home with little colour at the moment and this was the perfect way to do it without seeming bland, it's all about texture!
What an absolute thrill to finally see the Adore Home magazine in the flesh. I loved this pastel shoot I did with Jacqui Turk at my sister in law Alice's home, so much so I ended up going home with the bedding! Then the next day I gave birth so I didn't even have time to enjoy it until I came out the baby haze (safely out of that now) The best part is that it's available to go buy at the newsagent TODAY! run don't walk...
I feel physically sick looking at these chairs. Of course they are in LA, of course shipping's too expensive (because for once the chairs aren't ridiculously priced - just a little bit) GET IT TOGETHER AUSTRALIA - make things that are beautiful like these chairs and make them somewhat reasonably priced. Too much to ask? Okay, enough aggressive ranting. These chairs are called the Rod + Weave by Eric Trine and I l.o.v.e them
The Hunting Chair by Borge Mogensen (can be purch'd in Sydney at Great Dane Furniture
The Toro chair from Bludot, the chair that got me dreaming of tan leather and incidentally the chair I purchased for my client's master bedroom
The F44 chair by Pierre Paulin (this lady has made an appearance before on a chair a day) and another by PP, the Butterfly chair
and finally the thin frame lounge chair by Lawson Fenning - heavenly
FILED UNDER: a chair a day
As I have said before, I am certainly fulfilling all my shopping urges of late, Bludot has been a lifesaver, especially with their Toro chair and Strut consoles
Villa Interiors came up trumps with a pair of these chairs and a pair of these concrete lamps
I also managed to convince Spence & Lyda to part with one of their shop props to fill a long skinny wall at the house - so perfect for a beach house!
Then there's trusty West Elm, perfect classics
The deadline for completion is looming, only a month to go!

Ever since I've been doing the Bondi house I have been in a mood. Mood equals I want to change everything in my house. I had a quick insta sale of my coffee table and a few other things et voila, handy cash for newness! New West Elm coffee table, new artwork (painted by my mother in law), new cushions from an Etsy store, switched out my blue lamps for these neutrals (again from West Elm) and got some props out of the holiday cupboard. The horse bookends were a vinnies find for $10! Now I'm getting new art for the dining room (watch this space) and I got new lamps for the bedroom and fresh new linen, post to come!
Now what I reeeeeeealy want is 2 new sofas, no more sectional but being on mat leave means I can't make crazy expensive decisions like that so it will have to wait...
These linen bound embossed sketch books from Kelly Wearstler, the Bank Modern Mink velvet lounge chair from Bludot, these SABA x Catacombz bronze reflector sunglasses (on sale), new Gorman homewares (the lobster bedding!)
this delicious Nina Ricci bag from Shopbop
and ... HAPPY 2 MONTHS OLD GEORGE TEDDY! Thanks HB for the gorgeous photo x
