Sorry for the grainy pic, promise the nice nursery shots are coming soon with the new issue of Adore :) I was devastated that my custom Etsy decal did not arrive until the Monday after our Saturday shoot for the nursery (sods law) so you will have to trust me that it looks really good in situ. I desperately wanted a neon sign for the room but it's too costly to make a quick decision, my compromise was the decal from Etsy seller Decal Chic, they do any word any colour any size, amazing! I had to make do and switch things up for the shoot which I still think turned out beautifully it just wasn't completely done (is a room ever completely done though?) The leather skate deck was a gift from my clever friends and they make to order if you are interested let me know! So in reality, the change pad will sit on top of the drawers and the deck will be lounging elsewhere probably being tripped over each night in my groggy state. I had to restrain myself with the white toys, I have a bazillion of them and didn't want to overwhelm the poor dresser, and how good are my drawer handles? Little ebony panther heads, so in love. Stay tuned for the shoot in full in the new Adore mag in a few days

Iosis cushions are a firm favourite of mine and these new prints are screaming PEEP. They are reminiscent of my favourite floor tile pattern and are totally giving Pierre Hardy

Also popping up in my inbox this week were these delicious Shibori wallpapers below, renters need not go any further for FOMO

There are no words for this bedroom of Miranda Skoczek via The Design Files. The Leila Jeffries photograph, the Moroccan wedding blanket and THAT GOLD URN. How lucky is this lady to have found said urn and how genius of her to have it as a bedside WHATEVER. There's more insanity for your viewing pleasure on TDF if you want to go look. She makes me want Fornasetti real bad.

This diabolical bowl is at Becker Minty right now and I'm having seriously impure thoughts about it. Then I remember I'm having a baby and maybe it's not right to spend that much on a decorative object. Then I think about going to West Elm to satisfy my need with a little accoutrement but really nothing fills a Kelly Wearstler void does it...

So back to the baby, Han and I shot it last weekend, it's a small room so hard to capture it well. I don't want that much fuss in there, all the nurseries I have seen that I have fallen for have been quite minimal, and let's be honest, I'm decorating for me really not the baby. Everything I'm buying I would have bought without being preggers, is that selfish? Hold on here, maybe the baby needs a Kelly Wearstler stone checker dish? A bit of a stretch. Anywho, the nursery will be in the next issue of Adore magazine coming out NEXT WEEK!

I knew this guy would make it! Last year I bought a concrete sculpture from Aussie artist Kenny Yong Soo Son from Stuido Kyss and now he's over at The Design Files (above) and it's the number one object on Real Living's lust list (below) PLUS it's featured in Vogue Living this month. Massive congratulations! Buy yours at Cargo Collective

0 shimmer table

Major furniture crush, it's the Shimmer table from Glas Italia (available locally at Space Furniture) made with iridescent glass panels. They remind me of Gemma Smith's sculptures. Wouldn't it look oh so perfect with a concrete backdrop and some genius shaggy rug for contrast? I'm already decorating a whole room around it.

A little quilt goes a long way in my book, have you seen the covers available for the Esbjorn chair at IKEA? Above is the Barnaby chair manufactured by Sancal available at Ke-Zu in Australia, then there's everything from Ligne Roset (below)

and below, the Moroso Panna chair from Hub furniture 

all this quilting makes me wanna buy some fuchsia pink seat pads for my dining chairs, then there's all the lovely quilt-y fashion I'm missing out on because my tummy is TOO big to slide into those grey chevron sweaters and more. See? interiors are always so much kinder than fashion now-a-days.
