Hollywood sign

I am so happy that they managed to save the hollywood sign from being pulled down. Now you may think that this post is a departure from interior design but this sign is design at it's best, it conveys so much hope, excitement, angst etc etc and it is so iconic and beautiful in it's simplicity. I was so excited to see it last year and this is a photo that i took of it, click on image for detail. LA would not have been the same without it, I kept looking up at it from almost everywhere in LA that i went.

loving this...

Not many of us can afford designer furniture but they are pretty to look at, these paisley patterned ethno eames chairs caught my eye. I will wait until someone does a replica for half the price!

I have encountered a problem of late, my pillow keeps slipping through the end of the bed! Of course we have to solve this problem in a designer way so I started researching for well upholstered bedheads and found that here does them the best and are reasonably priced, now they have so many choices but here are some of the good ones. Their freight is reasonable as well, for that hotel look and comfort, they are my designer tip for you!!

There is a set of rules to successful grouping, like things look good in odd numbers ie 3,5 etc, that things should be grouped in ascending size, it should form a triangular shape, it should have similar themes, colors etc etc etc but rules are meant to be broken, I followed some but not all the rules in the grouping of objects in my own house as seen below.

more pics

I couldn't wait for the good pictures to come so here are some of the ones i took of the new massage place that i decorated, wallpaper: cranes from florence broadhurst,sydney, lights:papaya from Thailand, modern rattan tables and chairs from thailand from ambience furniture, mirror mounted on a frame from a local shop, candle holder from papaya again, replica eames armchair by matt blatt.

before and after

I was really over the look of my deck off my lounge room, it was dated and jaded so with the help of a friend, we transformed it in no time at all, the result,a fresh beach look consistent with the inside of my house.

BEFORE, a hippy trippy cluttered byron bay look!!

AFTER, a blue and white sparse beachy theme

now I have to get the white paint splashes off the floor!
