Good morning, happy Thursday! Every so often my self-imposed, workaholic lifestyle gets the best of me. I am officially taking the day off to rest and relax. Thanks for visiting today and I shall return tomorrow - so stay tuned. Ciao!
We have been having terrible trouble with our power going out over the last 48 hours so hopefully we won't lose power while I am uploading these 3 post today. Here are some gorgeous interiors from a wonderful collection at this beautiful blog.
These ceramics(above) are so pretty - do any of you recognize these?
Love this white room with the crazy detailed cushions and ottoman.
If you know me at all you will have guessed this(above) is my favourite image from this collection!
Olive Bites Studio produces useful and beautiful things using sustainable cork and recycled steel. I spotted Olive Bites on Scoutie Girl yesterday - they have an ad running there(I often find great stuff in the ads at Scoutie Girl!) I love cork and I would love to work with cork sometime - its a great, tactile, natural, flexible product that is showing up all over the creative world these days(and I have a big jar of wine bottle corks with beautiful designs that I can't bear to throw away because they are so pretty). Check out more about Olive Studios right here.
Fiona Richards | Cartolina Cards . . . . I have never considered myself a trend follower. The only things I follow are my instincts. Collecting and creating have taught me to trust the art that moves me and question the fads that don't. This blog reflects the diverse design influences behind my work and all the things I love.
