Enoki Cumulus

I first spotted these lights when we ate at Gordon Street Garage here in Perth.  I loved the contrast of the industrial warehouse style fit out with these soft whimsical lights.  Designed by South Australian company Enoki, these Enoki Cumulus pendant lights are my new light crush.

They look great hung in a cluster or just on their own. Although they do come in different colour ways I love the simple white.  I would love to hang one in the corner of our spare room.

You can order online and they deliver flat packed which is great!

DIY Serving Tray

Sorry about the delay between posts.  We had a fantastic holiday away and I am just starting to feel human again now the jet lag has gone.   The flight back from the US to Perth is tough...  40 hours later (including long stop-overs) it was so nice to be home in our own place.  

I did come home to find this little treasure on our table which was nice!

A gorgeous friend had knitted my teapot a little hat to keep it warm! Very thoughtful and very appropriate for today's post...  

Did you catch my second guest post for We Love Perth on my DIY Serving Tray?  With Winter here I am all about entertaining at home and in particular I love a good old fashioned afternoon tea.  These easy to make serving trays are perfect to serve your afternoon tea on.  I might have to organise one this weekend just to show off my new teapot hat!

DIY Wedding

One of my favourite parts of planning our recent wedding was collecting and making props to place around our ceremony and reception locations.  Our wedding took place in Hobart, Tasmania and as we were living in Dubai when we got engaged the majority of our wedding was planned over the phone and email.  Gumtree and ebay became my favourite web sites at the time and my lovely Mum became our much needed 'on the ground' resource.

My favourite finds were the box of vintage glass bottles and decanters that Mum picked up from an old farm (she drove over 3 hours each way to pick them up!), the hundred or so old vintage plates that we sourced and the old apple picking ladders we picked up for only $5 each and the seller even delivered them for free (that's the helpful Tasmanians for you!)

We also had lots of help from our amazing friends and family who helped collect bits and pieces or donate their treasures.  We had a loose theme of 'Vintage Travel' and had so many ideas of what we wanted to use but at the same time we didn't want it to look too gimmicky.  We were really happy with how it came together on the day and had the best day!

Away on a jet plane!

It's holiday time!!

We have left today on our holiday to the US and I cannot wait!  First stop is LA where I am hoping to do some celebrity spotting.  We have got tickets to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for Friday so hopefully we will get off to a good start there.  I will keep you posted as a go! 

I am excited about the shopping but I think I will be saving my pennies until the New York portion of our trip.  I bought this book below on the recommendation of a like minded good friend and it is fabulous!  The plan was to read it before we leave so as not to carry books around with us but it is such a gorgeous book and has so many hidden gems that it is coming along with us.

Glam Drinks Trolley

You will know from previous posts that I love a great drinks trolley.  I think they are glamorous and decadent and I hope one will feature in all my future homes. 

I recently saw one Design Sponge which is absolutely gorgeous.  I love that gloss white finish with the gold details.   How fantastic is the end result below!!

We Love Perth

It was an exciting day on Friday when my first Guest Blogger post for We Love Perth was published!

We Love Perth is a fabulous resource that details all the amazing things Perth has to offer.  Whether that be things to do, places to go or tasty treats to eat.  

For the month of June I will be doing a guest blogger post every Friday.  Make sure you check their website every Friday to read each post in full.  It was fun coming up with new ideas for the posts and also re-working some of my most popular ones so hopefully they are all well received!

Home Office

Lately I have noticed I am spending more and more time doing blog work or personal admin after work or on weekends.  My current home office set up consists of me sitting on the couch with my laptop or propped up on the dining table when we are not using it.  Neither option is ideal and after hours of typing on the couch my neck would agree!  So it is time to think about setting up a home office... any thing similar to these would do be nicely.

What do you look for in a home office?
