I feel each works equally well in either a contemporary or classic setting. The gorgeous french wool basket lampshade at top, is from The Country Trader just around the corner. Parterre is in very good company.
As they suggest, pop in with sand between your toes or slip into your Gucci loafers, it doesn’t get much more chilled than this. The setting … divine, and the venue … oh so stylish. This is Sydney living at its best.
Not sure how one would describe the design concept … nautical … beach club with a touch of the luscious tropics … it just works !!
For a similar treat a little further afield visit The Boathouse Palm Beach … same cute concept, same clever operators.
Since my last post I am noticing bookshelves and bookcases everywhere and the ones that work really leap out. The bookshelves above are my idea of perfection. Such an interesting combination of colours, both books and decorative items.
One could call this styling … the ability to put together bits and pieces that work … and it is all about having an eye for colour. It is the combination of colours that pull it all together … or to be quite specific, always work with a complimentary palette of colours.
Apply this principle to any collection whether it be bookshelves or dressing table. There is nothing as elegant as white or cream with a hint of soft metallic. Have a play and see what you can achieve.
