For the love of legs

After a teeny tiny delay in production, the my first sofa is now complete. You may remember a while back I shared my dining table design (check it out again here) well this sofa was made for the same client, so I adopted the same leg on both the table and sofa as a subtle link between the two who share a large open living/dining area.

Market Lane Coffee Cart

For this merchandising trolley for the new Market Lane in Therry St, I took a vintage Belgian hospital trolley, removed the glass and had some custom timber tops made.

Table Tonic loving

Big thanks to Louise from Table Tonic for the blog-loving today - and hello and welcome to my new visitors to my blog. I'm a huge fan of Louise's online homewares store Table Tonic where she sells magic pieces like this amazing JuJu Hat below. This is something I have lusted for a loooong time, with our settlement just a week away I might just take the plunge. Anyway the other thing I love about Table Tonic is her blog, it's a daily dose of interiors plus some super healthy recipes - all written in a such a lovely and friendly tone that you just want to be her best friend - ha! Welcome new readers and thanks Lousie! x
JuJu Hat - get it here from Table Tonic.

More behind the scenes with Moth

Here's a peek into the evolution of this months Moth window, it's one of my favourite jobs - and I look forward to creating something new for Jocey. This month I got Stef involved and she did a fantastic job constructing the Moth dress.
 A tule skirt was required for a full 50's/Mad Men style.
 Next was the sweetheart neckline.
 With the dress complete - we had to carefully transport her to Albert Park.

We pulled together a mis-matching set of jugs and vases, I wanted a real 'Nanna' feel to the collection. Then we filled them full of really simple and colour flowers.
The final result.

The Flower Appreciation Society

Spring is here, daylight savings has started - so it's time to start using more and more flowers. I have just come across The Flower Appreciation Society, 2 London girls Ellie & Anna who banded together over their hopeless love of flowers. I am digging their garden type varieties and the clash of colour, shape and variety - all in a perfect, non-perfect way.
