Bookcase files

A lovely client has asked me to help her with some bookcases in her sitting room, which led me straight to my files for inspiration. Sometimes I feel we should have some like these in our bedroom as there never seems enough room on the bedside table for all the ones we want to have close by.
A novel idea!
Although very tempted at times, I think I would be in BIG trouble if I ever colour coded our library like Oprah's one.

Always cutting edge Kelly Wearstler's book cases at the Viceroy certainly make a statement.

Now where would I start...

The new Farrow and Ball wallpapers have just been released and the possibilities are endless. If not for a wall or a whole room why not pretty up the inside of your wardrobe.

Wallpapers all Farrow and Ball, wardrobe image unknown source.

A thing for lattice

I'm finding I just can't get enough of lattice designs whether on walls, curtains, sofas or rugs. This design is the perfect compliment to combine with other patterns or simply used alone. If any one knows the name and supplier of this particular wall paper I would love to know.

A day in the garden

I thought I'd share some photos of our little beach and lake at the foot of our garden. I only wish I had more time to come down here and sit and enjoy it's beauty.

It's not often I have the pleasure of spending time in our garden but today was such a perfect day and I happened to be able to have the day free to potter, weed, prune and just enjoy working in our garden.

Fabric dreams

Wading through racks of beautiful furnishing fabrics is my kind of shopping. The possibilities endless, the designs, colours and textures are a visual heaven. In Sydney recently I was hunting for some lovely fabrics for our little cottage renovation. I fell in love with paisley, trellis and houndstooth all over again. Enjoy your weekend, it has been a perfect March day here. Sally-Ann x
