Just checking in :)

Hello friends!!! I'm still alive haha ;) Firstly, I just want to thank you all for your truly lovely comments and emails, I'm completely blown away by the warmth and love you've shown me. Who'd a thought my little blog could lead me to such amazing people and make wonderful new friends.
Anyway, enough of the emotional moment *wipes tear*, I just had to swing by and brag about my newest love. Thanks to PM K. Rudd and his stimulus package I bought myself a new book recently that left me gasping for breath. Inspirations from France and Italy by Betty Lou Phillips is truly the most magnificently breathtaking book I've ever laid eyes on. I have quite an extensive design book collection. Not as big as Joni's of course ;) but I'm still quite proud of it, and this one now sits as my very favourite. It's going to be hard to find a book to top this one.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves ;)

I desperately want a pastel map of Paris to frame for my office. I'll have to check out Ebay.

I'm still currently trying to sell this apple green colour scheme to a client for her formal lounge. She still not budging grrrrr hehe :)

It's hard to see in my poor scanned pic but the Gracie handpainted Chinoiserie wallpaper in this foyer is too. die. for! *sigh*

Please click the images to enlarge!

I practically squealed with delight at this kitchen! Those bar stools immediately reminded me of Gaynor Groome's, owner of Sydney store Shades Of Pale, kitchen. One of my all time favourites. And an aqua ceiling??! Absolutely stunning!

Again, GORGEOUS!!! I'll never tire of monogrammes.

This picture is probably one of my very favourites in the book. Everything about this image is perfect!

OK what is it with me and Green and Yellow at the moment? Hmmm.

I hope you're all doing well. I'm going to do my best to catch up on what EVERYONE has been up to. I've missed you like crazy, you have no idea.
