Drawn to the colour and form of Dawson’s Ace Chair in olive green velvet, Monmouth’s Dome Pendant lights, along with Weave’s Ava Jade and Impasto cushions, as they bring the calm of nature inside.


 

 

Interior Design – Keep it Natural

Interior Design – Keep it Natural

Storie – Florim ceramic tiles from European Ceramics; the timber tray and bowls display at Apartmento; the stunning granite slab from SlabCo; my favourite antique cane chair, and Pierre Frey’s cork wallpaper from Atelier – all creating interesting texture and tones, naturally.

Replenish Renewel Refresh

Bring the inside out and the outside in – it is time for spring – replenish, renewal and refresh. New fabric from JAB and Salvador, Katie Stratton’s wallpaper, velvet cushions from Mulberi Home, and my favourite Balinese sculpture from JillyJamPots are a few ways to connect our interiors to the outside with a visual flow.

 

 

Colour Inspiration From Kawakawa Leaves

Colour Inspiration From Kawakawa Leaves

We are surrounded by inspiration, so when developing paint colours, and creating colour schemes, I am always on the look out for new combinations of saturations and tones. The colours of these dried Kawakawa leaves are rich in indigo, soft green, walnut brown, and blushed taupe. It’s one of my favourite teas for a revitalising tonic too.  I loved the synchronicity at the launch today of new furniture and furnishings in similar colours.

 

BTW note no ‘chopped’ cushion in sight !!  Stop it with the chopping people.
