Have a Dusty Weekend...






I'm thinking about colour right now - which is not an unusual thing to do on a Friday night for this colour crazy girl! But really, it's because I spent the day with a group of colour courageous gals at the Just Colour Workshop at the studio... Courageous you say? Well yes of course, learning about colour can be a daunting thing - it's such a vast subject, with nuance upon nuance to decipher - building a relationship with it takes patience, practice and perseverance but the journey can be the most satisfying of all when you find yourself creating a colourful interior full of life and energy... Thanks everyone for a great day... It's always a pleasure to spend time with my decorating tribe. Tonight, on this rainy Bangalow evening, I'm turning to soft and muted tones put together in a relaxed and pared back way - like those found in the Bloomingville website... Ahhhh.... What a beautiful palette indeed...

Before I go, I'm going to announcing the winner of the fabulous Table Tonic cushion... This giveaway has been such a popular one - and I'm so sorry that there can only be one winner... But look out for more giveaways in the coming weeks as we get into the giving spirit for Christmas... Now drum roll please...

The winner of the Table Tonic cushion is....... Alison Gibbs.... Congratulations Alison - send us an email with all of your details and we'll get your gorgeous prize to you asap....

Love that nickel lamp. But then again, I am obsessed with great lamps. I recently found a fabulous lamp with a pineapple style base. See it here: http://blog.spotsandstripes.com.au/2010/08/pineapple-lamp.html
