I am very fortunate to have someone close to me who I can gabble onto about interior design. Amanda Talbot (AKA Amanda Heath), who writes a wonderful blog named snOOp just sent this lovely article from Real Living Australia to me… ‘cheers heath-y!’
Sadly, there has been a lot less gabbling lately as she has gone back to live in Australia still, Its very nice to know when she likes something of mine, she is very honest, my harshest critic!

Life has suddenly become quite hectic since we received the news a few weeks ago that we had to vacate our little flat…. so I am sitting here in my soon to be old studio with boxes all around me and emulsion paint in my hair (from white washing the new place) … so I hope to be forgiven for neglecting my new blog, before its even really begun!
Anyway, to quickly get something on the blog, I thought I would quickly share a typical email from my mum….I received this a couple of days ago – her emails never fail to cheer me up!
She lives in rural france, and Isaac is the-very-loud-non-stop-talkative-siamese-cat that my mum inherited from my brother when he moved to Australia….I think he drives her a little crazy at times…..:

You will probably remember learning all about Piet Mondrian at school, renowned for his abstract paintings; monochrome grids filled with large blocks of primary colours.
You many not be so familiar with is early work, which is of stark contrast to the style he is best known for.
I love this early work, and every time I chance upon one of his drawings, it makes me want to take my pencils, sketch book, and plonk myself in the middle of the closest park.
I thought I would quickly share…..

Its the best feeling when customers love what they have bought from me so much that they take a picture and send it to me.
This photo seemed particularly blog worthy, and shows my design Meadow Dusk off beautifully.
I love this meadow colourway very much, its a great complimentary colourway to other designs. At the moment it is proudly sitting on my sofa alongside these beauties….
Thankyou Lauren for sending me this pic via instagram. You have wonderful styling skills!

This week, like many of other self employed people, I have mostly been involved with my accounts…. but, I have found time to have some fun and play a little with making some geometric patterns ( ‘<>’ )
I do love creating them, but I can easily go off on a bit of a tangent in the beginning.
With geometrics I get a little involved with the cleverness of the repeat. It is part of my usual process to begin with a simple motif and meander through as many different pattern options as possible.
I find it nearly impossible to stick to the idea that was originally in my head, I suppose its because I hope I may encounter a happy accident!
I am still a million miles away from my original idea, but I still quite like a few of these patterns that i’ve stumbled upon……..perhaps I should set them aside for bedding, rugs even!… ah, Its good to dream….Read More»
