I have long made it known that I am a fan of the beautiful Armadillo & Co rug range. I posted about my rug lust here and on my wishlist here. I also own the stunning daisy weave and have a couple from the junior collections put aside for two little rooms that need refurbishing in my house. Coincidentally I blogged about my friends stunning home here where some of the junior collection was shot along with some of their other rugs. The ranges just continue to inspire and I am loving all the new designs they come out with. But I also really like the simplicity of their neutral woven rugs and will be purchasing one very shortly for my lounge room. Keep up the stunning work Armadillo & Co.

One of my favourite colourways at the moment is blush. It really softens an interior and sits well with so many combinations of colours. I think it works really well with natural tones, greys, marble, mint, tan leather and copper. I will be incorporating this colour into my own home in the way of soft furnishings and accessories.
Hello all, I have just returned from a dream trip to Europe and Scandinavia that has got my design juices in overdrive! I saw so much fabulous design and architecture, it was truly amazing. So with that, my recent desire is for a beautiful boucherouite rug. The texture and inspiring designs meld beautifully with mid century furniture and Scandinavian interiors. Here are some of my favourites;
I have a huge crush at the moment on every weaving produced by the very talented Maryanne Moodie, an Australian who has recently located to Brooklyn. They are all so unique and the colour pallets are all just beautiful. Moodie is producing beginner weaving kits to purchase and I would really to give it a go. A beautiful weaving in the home really adds character and warmth. Here are some of my favourites;
In less than two weeks my little family of three will be heading off to Europe. The excitement is really starting to build! Our first stop is Rome, then a week in Tuscany with some beautiful friends before heading to Florence. After our Italian leg we will drive through to Liechtenstein, Germany and the Czech Republic. So as if that isn't amazing enough itself, we then get to head to Stockholm and Copenhagen! These two cities have been on my wish list for a very long time and I can't believe I finally get to visit! I have long loved not only the landscape but the design philosophies this region encapsulates. Along with Mid-century design, Scandinavian design influences me daily through work and play. So to be among design that I have truly admired for years is just going to blow my socks off! And this church, well to walk in there will be a lifelong dream fulfilled.
This has to be one of my most favourite and revered chair. It is on my wishlist for our newly refurbished study. I think this take on the classic bentwood is even more stunning. While the Thonet and Ton pieces are classics, they have been used to death everywhere and there are so many copies out there, that they just look a little common now. This chair is a fresh take and even more beautiful in my opinion. It is the Fontal Chair by Oscar Tusquets Blanca
So many times I stumble across a piece of furniture and am completely gobsmacked at how amazing it is. And this one is no exception. It is probably my most favoured piece yet. From the design studio of Ilse Crawford this bedside table from the 'Companions' range is for manufacturer and distributor De La Espada.
