the como hotel, melbourne ... so elegantly refurbished

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, December 04, 2012


While recharging the batteries last week with a week at the beach, I had the luxury of both starting a new book and devouring as many magazines as I could get my hands on.  Fuelled with inspiration and ideas to share, I was then promptly stopped in my tracks ... technical problems ... the blog was clearly not going to happen from up there.  After my initial melt down, I came to the conclusion that it was probably a good thing and maybe I was meant to actually have a holiday. 

Anyhow, here I am in my new laid back state of mind ... sharing with you some of what caught my eye as I perused.  The Como Hotel in Melbourne (boutique hotel in Sth Yarra)has been slowly and quietly, with doors still open, refurbishing.  Very much of the moment,  this unusual combination of colours is elegant and very clever.  I have always loved chocolate brown with duck egg blue and aubergine ... but oh that punch of citrus is gorgeous !!    


Pure indulgence !!

PS. I think there is something quite luxurious about these deeply buttoned ottomans.
