My friends and regular blog followers may have noticed that my last blog post was many moons ago – so I would like to apologise.
The reality is that I have been overwhelmingly busy over the past few months and my dear blog was the first to notice the changes. As some of you might know I am planning my wedding (which is now less than 3 months away.. ahhhhhhh exciting, I know), working hard designing interiors at my day job and my business Penny Street Interiors. I have also been working with my mum who has a catering business here in Adelaide South, South Australia – Carla’s Kitchen Catering (we have a Facebook page that you can view here).
So for my first blog post back I wanted to show you a few cool posters that my wonderful fiance had pointed out to me. Actually it was more like “you haven’t posted in AGES – you should blog on this…”
Jesús Prudencio from Seville, Spain sells these awesome posters from his Etsy store Cars And Films. He creates and sells a series of movie posters that include iconic cars. Have a look below at some of my fav’s below:
Kip & Co. was brought to my attention from reading one of my favourite online magazines – Adore Home Magazine (you can view the post here)
Kip & Co. have some playful bedding collections to suit both the young and young at heart. Be sure to head over to the website to view the collections, but in the mean time I have included a few of the pieces I’m eye-baling below:
Today I was so thankful to have been nominated for an Inspiring Blog Award from a fellow interior’s blogger.. Interior Thinking.
It is so lovely to know that there are people out there in the blogosphere that are willing to take time out of their day to swing by, read and sometimes even comment on my blog. Makes it all worth it!
So thank you Interior Thinking for the nomination and reminding me of how awesome you all are.
In acceptance of the blog I have included below 7 facts about myself & 15 blogs which I love reading.
I am currently studying for my Diploma in Interior Design & Decoration.
I work part-time in design and construction, designing kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and outdoor BBQ areas for our clients.
I also run my own business Penny Street Interiors which provides online interior design services to the public (you can view the website here)
I am marrying my best friend of 10 years on the 12th of October 2013! Yay.. i know totally exciting right?
I am a perfectionist – which is sometimes my downfall.
I love pumping iron and going to the gym! Yup – I’m a bit of a gym junkie!
I am willing to try anything at least once (if it doesn’t work out, at least I can say I’ve given it a go)
Okay, so it’s not quiet 15 but its close and not all interiors related, but nevertheless they are awesome, so please check them out.
1. Display the award image on your blog page. 2. Link back to the person who nominated you. 3. State seven facts about yourself. 4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award. 5. Notify your bloggers of their nomination and link to their posts.
If there is one thing I love more than skulls (view previous posts here, here and here) it would have to be neon printed cushions and The Print Society just happen to hit the nail on the head.
Their cushions, purses and bags are made from natural fabrics such as hemp/linen and are hand printed in Sydney Australia. They also use non-toxic water based inks and dyes, and are produced using sustainable practices.
You will find below some of my picks from their online store:
Check out their online shop here to view (and perhaps purchase) some of these delights.
After the Peacock Chair was featured in the latest Adore Magazine I felt the need to want more. So I visited The Family Love Tree to see the different colours and styles they had available… and boy what a range they have.
Go have a look over on the online store to see their whole range, but for your viewing pleasure I have included some of my picks from the ‘Classic Peacock’ & ‘Lady Peacock’ range below (oh and they also have kids versions too)
