I love the styling in all their shots, the large scale blocks of colour are wonderful. A highlight of mine was visiting Hay House in Copenhagen. It was just beautiful! All images are via Hay.

As an Interior Designer and an extreme lover of all things design, which well borders on obsession really, I come across so many different brands. One of my favourites is the Danish firm Hay. As an avid enthusiast of Scandinavian design and mid century modern, I really feel their designs evoke timeless appeal and are well considered with a little bit of fun. As I get older I am realising the importance of longevity in design and that buying a piece of furniture should be well considered, not what's trendy at the time. This ethos is spot on with the philosophies of Scandinavian culture and why their homes are so beautifully furnished. So I am not settling for anything, I am saving up for that Mags sofa!

I am lusting after some ceramic pieces by Kat and Roger pretty badly at the moment! The pair come from Los Angeles and their work is influenced by their Californian surroundings and the city itself. I also think they have quite a mid century vibe going on and thus would make the perfect addition to my mid century pad! Their works can be found at Douglas and Bec here in Australia.

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;

How amazing do they look in a modern interior with danish and mid century furniture? Sublime!

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;

Also do check out Maryanne's gorgeous little apartment over at DesignSponge, it is just lovely and has me severely dreaming of moving to New York!

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.
