Escape to Brisbane

I took a short trip to Brisbane this week and managed to see a whole lot while there. I'm back in Sydney now and as I was settling down tonight to review the photos I took from the trip I realised my memory card won't read. Hopefully I can recover the photos because I have a lot I would like to share with you!

In the meantime I may have to rely on the photos I took on my phone. Hope you've been well.

Photo taken in Brisbane at Kerbside. LOVE the worn floor.

A print. A painting.

It takes me an awfully long time to frame prints and paintings I purchase but I popped these two into the framers over the weekend.

Snap happy

I'm still snapping away at random things I come across and sharing them on instagram. My username is ishandchi if you would like to join me there. Lately I have been obsessed with patterns I have come across in restaurants and bars as well as chairs. Oh, how I love chairs!

Here are a few images I have collected as well as some other random snaps that make me smile.

Colour blocking in architecture

Once upon a time, I admit, I muttered the words: Architecture. I just can't get myself interested in it?!

And now? Obsessed.

The latest building I have fallen for is this one designed by Emmanuelle MoureauxTokyo based French architect and designer, and it takes the idea of colour blocking to new heights (literally).

Assignment is done

My assignment is done! And this is how happy I am.

Layering patterns

If I don't use this wallpaper somewhere, be it in my home or a project, I think I might burst!

I do like the way the sample looks here, layered underneath the yellow wallpaper I framed for the bedroom.

Five colour ideas for your home

Did you like my crazy colour combo for last week's Fashion Friday? If so, you may like these bright colour ideas to try at home. For most of these ideas all you need is paint, courage and a bit of patience!

Snap happy

I probably should have locked myself indoors to work on an assignment due frighteningly soon but the sun was out this weekend. Here are some photos I took on my adventures under the guise of 'colour, styling and interior inspiration' for future projects. Yep, that makes me feel a bit better.

Fashion Friday: The pink sofa + springtime flowers

Apologies for my absence. I have been nursing a sick little boy this week but he is on the mend and his usual cheeky self again.

Meanwhile the sofa arrived and I am still decorating the perfect spot for it. I rather like the way it looks under this painting but it is at the entrance to my home and not a suitable spot. I am thinking of placing it in my bedroom with a cluster of antique mirrors hanging above it. That would be dreamy.
