Home sweet home...

During the week I was experimenting with styling around my apartment, positioning them on the mantle piece and in the living room. I assisted on an interior's magazine shoot and was able to take home some beautiful flowers (lucky girl) so you will see I have used them in a lot of my photos. I have a perfectly functional bookcase, however I thought all our books would look groovy stacked in the middle of the fire place. Not only has this given us more storage space in our bookcase but it also looks creative and fills in a empty space that would never really be utilised.

While in Ubud, Bali I found some bright ikat cotton fabrics and had them made up into cushion covers, see the mustard yellow pillow on the white replica eames chair. I also love the silver aluminium boxes and the white beaded bamboo boxes I got from Bali too.

Enjoy the week ahead! x

Pretty Pillows...

Mum had some gorgeous pillows made up from beautiful turkish ikat fabric which she bought while in Turkey 2010. I really love the lime/yellow fabric on the back it compliments the blue tones on the front fabric, great throw pillows for the beach house, or to brighten up a bedroom that lacks colour. I hope to take some photos this week of some throw pillows I had made up in Legian, Bali. I managed to find some bright and colourful Bali Batik fabric from Ubud, unfortunately my favourite fabric roll was not returned from the pillow makers and I didn't realise until I was back in Sydney. Sure enough the business where my pillows were made chose not to reply to any of my emails notifying them of my missing fabric, very annoying!! Oh well lesson learned.

Enjoy your Sunday evening...x

Elizabeth Taylor R.I.P (1932-2011)

Beautiful actress Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor has passed away at the age of 79 due to heart failure. She was considered one of the great actresses of the golden age in Hollywood, next to Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren. I have posted some timeless art pieces and photos of the star to remember her talent and beauty.

"Liz" by Andy Warhol.

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" 1958, Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor.

"Cleopatra" 1963, Elizabeth Taylor as the Egyptian Queen.

SoHoStyle LOVE's Diane Bergeron...

Both magazine images are from the new February 2011 edition of Germany's Architectural Digest, featuring Diane Bergeron's beautifully decorated home. Both images collaborate my favourite colours for the moment, pink, orange and yellow! I love the black ikat bowls contrasting against the white tiles and the subtle splash of yellow on the hanging mugs.

For more Diane Bergeron inspiration check out her blog The DB Files. Ivy & Piper have also just released their latest online magazine featuring an interview and sneak peak inside Diane Bergeron's Melbourne studio, this can be found at the the Ivy & Piper website.

Knitted homewares...

I am excited about Winter and the idea of cuddling up inside with some warm home furnishing. This amazing Flocks knitted rug designed by Christien Meindertsma. She also designed some colourful knitted urchin poufs, check out her website for some other funky designs.

Forget tea-cosies, check out these cute knitted pencil jar covers/vases. You can pick up one of these from Ferm Living Australia for $58. The Danish Ferm Living online store also do some great knitted poufs similar to Flocks' urchin poufs, but are much cheaper, however don't seem to be in stock on their Australian online store.

CB2 have designed some warm and wintery monochromatic grey crochet cushion to cuddle up to with a cup of hot milo, check out their website.
