|BEHIND THE SCENES: STYLING WITH FREEDOM
A couple of months ago I was invited by Freedom to style a living space using pieces from their new Spring / Summer collection. I brought my team with me - David (photographer) and Christopher (junior stylist) and the Freedom team were amazing help.
|Starting with the Bonnie sofa in tan leather, we added and subtracted cushions and other pieces until we achieved the final space which reflects my take on the Spring / Summer look. I would love to know what you think!|

|SHOPPING AT SUPA CENTA MOORE PARK
I was recently invited to shop at Supa Centa Moore Park. I have visited SCMP regularly over the years, sometimes just for a browse and a coffee and other times with a particular item in mind and it is always a nice time out.
|I have shared details of my shopping trip over at the SCMP blog if you would like to have a read and see some of the cool items I found during my visit, including the Cuban lady print (below) - isn't she great? Thanks for having me SCMP!|

|WATERVIEW HOUSE KITCHEN
VIVIAN PANAGOS - INTERIOR DESIGN
Hello there! I am still in cyberspace - mainly checking in from time to time but mostly I am working on design projects away from the screen. Life is jam-packed at the moment but I wanted to pop by and share with you the 'final' photos of a project I worked on a while ago (four years ago now!).
You will have already seen the progress photos but just to re-cap: The Waterview House is a magnificent architecturally designed property overlooking the water and surrounded by bush. I worked with the family to select furnishings for the new home. This particular part of the project was to specify materials for a newly designed kitchen. I presented options for everything from the benchtop, cabinet and island materials, backsplash, wall paint, lighting and stools.
The inspiration for the colour palette were the architectural columns in the open living and dining spaces. You can see it in the photo below in the foreground - it has lovely red-brown and grey veining.
We selected white as the base colour for the kitchen. This included the base cabinets, benchtop, island stools and lighting. To soften the all-white look, we added a metallic backsplash which gives a lovely grey finish. The walls were painted a light grey and a beautiful antique oak wood veneer was selected for the kitchen island and bar. The veneer was laid horizontally in one continuous strip and has lovely veining throughout. We even added a playful touch to the kitchen with bright red bar stools.
