Easter is an excuse to get out some cute decorations....

There are some nice ideas for your easter table here if your having family round.
Have a great long weekend!

Great look with the tin table & morocccan tray & glasses

I looovvee this room!
The poufs look beautiful & the Hermes rug on the bed is to die for!
oh, what do you know, more pink!

This is a cute way to use these tea glasses!
You can get these glasses at T2 & pick up a giant pack of tealights at the hardware store or ikea. I love these trays. We actually have one as our coffee table on wooden legs.
I love these moroccan poufs! Not only do they look great & bring a bit of an exotic look to your space but they are so handy! You can use them as decoration and then use as extra seating when you need them!
Ive found a few places in Australia you can find them:
Table tonics website has them 'coming soon'

Houston we have a dining table!

Happy Monday all!

After a great bargain on ebay on friday night (i got the table & the chairs for $235) we have a dining table!
Not exactly as glamouous as some of the pics i was inspired by, but if i see some great chairs i love more i can just whack these back on ebay
(seeing as the 3 panton chairs only cost me $103!).
Plus it fits without looking too cramped & the chairs are really comfy!
(sorry about the crappy photo - took it on my iphone!)

The woman is a style genius & this book shares her secrets!
Not only do you get them for $55 (compared to her hourly rate of $300!) but a gorgeous coffee table book to refer back to!
Here is a great article on the smh website about the book & megans work.

Sheer floor to ceiling curtains...

After being inspired by the soft look of the top 2 pictures I just had a quote done to have this Silent Gliss wave track curtain in sheer white (see 3rd picture) done across our living/balcony opening.
We have floor to ceiling stacking sliding doors which open the living right up to the balcony but the heavy frames are quite harsh have to save up & boook it in!

Ish & Chi Prints & fabric art

Circus Print $12.50usd

Vintage Chandleier Print $12.50USD

Chandeleirs $12.50usd

Vintage Chandeleir Print $12.50 usd

Butterfly Tree $25.00 USD
Amy Butler Fabric Butterfly $25.00usd

Matryoshka Doll $30.00usd

Yesterday I featured the home studio of Viv from ish & chi.

Viv not only has a great blog following the renovation of her Sydney house, fashion and other bits & pieces but she has an online store where she sells some gorgeous art she makes herself!
I think the circus print & the butterflys would be beautiful in a kids room and could be a great & individual present for a freind who has recently had a baby!

Here are the links to her online shop & blog!
