Too cool for school.

Considering most Aussie kids are enjoying their last day of summer holidays today before school goes back on Monday, I thought this site, ReForm School, was suitably fitting. It's got Donna Wilson bits and bobs coming out of its ears, too-great-to-write-with pencils and loads more cool stuff, like this print, for only 60 big ones, that'll have you wishing you were back in grade 9 all over again.

Simple and true:

Know-it-all pencils:

Bedroom or lounge...

P.S Hawaii was ah-may-sing. Will post photos over the weekend.

I'm taking a much-needed break with my mum and sister to Hawaii for the next week and a bit. I'll be back on the 27th of January with more House Mad goodness. Mahalo!

Boy Meets Girl

Black + White = Perfection x100.

This is one room you could most definitely share with your man. I've never been a huge fan of black leather lounges, but this picture may have just changed my mind for good.

Try something new Tuesday: everyday objects as vases.

I recently did an entire shoot on this concept. More on that later, but in the meantime, a line-up of cans moonlighting as vases along your dining table beats a predictable centre piece any day.

Stately Sale

My dear friend over at To The Glamour Born is moving states and if I didn't already have a dining table in storage, I'd be snapping this puppy up. If you're in Sydney, you might want to consider checking it out. The sideboard goes alright too: To the glamour born: TTGB's Sharehouse Sale...

Need to know site: An Afternoon With...

My kind of inspiration wall

Framed + unframed x photos + prints = perfection.

Seriously Great Office Inspiration

Getting back to my New Year post that was all about change, I decided to go freelance this year to write and style from home which means my office needs some serious prettying up. In my dreams, it looks a little something like this...

Nosy Parker

I watched Julianne Moore's latest film, The Kids Are Alright recently and whoever did the set design on that film nailed it. Here are some pics I've had on file for ages of her NY house. Apparently, she moonlights as an interior designer.

A very fashionable way to re-use

I know exactly what I'll be doing with my next Diptyque glass once the candle is done and dusted. Thanks for the tip off, Peter Som.
