Fashion Sketches

I came across the lovely sketches online somewhere. Created by Miss Caprico, they are inspired by runway fashion.

Miss Capricho is and architect and I love the story of where the name came from. Some years ago, when still studying architecture, some friends let her do the compulsary construction site internship at their house. They payed with several vintage treasures and one was pair of shoes called "Miss Capricho" (Miss Caprice). She fell in love with the name of the "Miss Capricho" and decided that if some day she started a studio of architecture or design it would be named "Miss Capricho"...

Before and after

Here are some images of a kitchen I recently worked on.
My chaming clients had a cherry kitchen which was dating the interior. The bones were good so all it needed was a makeover. Doors were removed and taken away for spraying and fixed elements were done onsite.




I think it looks like a completely new kitchen.Fabulous job by Andrew and Jason.

When you think in antlers in interior design the image of a Scandinavian ski lodge comes to mind. These images show that antlers can be used in many different ways to make a quirky statement.

Elke Kramer Jewellery

Love these photos for jewellery designed by Elke Kramer.

Her designs are fabulous and while she doesn't follow fashions, she's always relevant and wearable. Stocked by the world's top fashion stores, including Colette in Paris, Liberty of London and Opening Ceremony in LA and New York. Elke's talent is endless as she is also an illustrator and art director.

Late last week, I worked with my gorgeous stylist friend Olivia Sparks to design and set up a small marquee at the JB Were Masters Golf tornament for the Ovarian Cancer Reseach Foundation.

The OCRF was established in May 2000 and it has developed to become one of Australia’spre-eminent bodies supporting ovarian cancer research programs that occur nationally- focused upon the understanding of the causes of ovarian cancer, its early detection and improving patient survival.

The OCRF is the offical charity partner, of the JB Were Masters and I was thrilled to be able to help them out with. Here are a couple of images of the marquee after we finished setting up.

I hope its been a great success for the OCRF.
To find out more about the OCRF and to make a donation, please visit their site and support a very worthy cause.

Fresh Flowers

I love this time of year, lots of fresh flowers from the garden that can be brought inside. Finally we are getting so warmer days as well.....

I love these mini fuschia's that are growing beside my very questionable outside loo at the back of the shop. Had to pick them so I can enjoy them.

These are a collection of beautiful roses from my garden at home, love all the colours combined.

Missing in action

I have been flat out, so I apologise for my lack of posts over the past week. I came across this image and I just love the Manuel Canovas wallpaper with this chair.

Maybe we will soon get some warm weather soon and be able to enjoy the sun. We have had tastes of the warm (28 on Friday, followed by 17 on Saturday, with a months worth of rain). Here are some images I had saved of pools for inspiration.
