Project Sofa {Chaise}

A military grade search has taken place over the last year in an effort to procure the perfect sofa, many options have been sourced that don’t suit our 6 foot tall frames. Call it a lack of communication but I have been searching for a three seat sofa whilst the Mr in recent months has deferred his search to a chaise lounge, what a Game changer!.

Chaise lounges scare me, I like symmetry too much and as you know I change my mind often, What if we move? And most importantly will we need to call “shotgun” every night the enviable corner position?

Do you have a chaise lounge? Do you think they look better with square or round coffee table or ottomans?

I needed a little convincing so I did a little “Peeping”.

{Open House} Kips Bay Decorator Show House

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House is now "Open for Inspection". The event is commonly staged in a Manhattan brownstone or town house, this year it was reported that there were no town houses to be found. And so the developer of the Aldyn, a 40-story condominium building at the south end of the former Trump development above the old Penn Central rail yards, offered the charity the use of two adjacent unsold duplexes, each more than 6,000 square feet (priced at $15.9 million and $16.9 million if you have some spare change in your pocket).

Via: NYtimes (More pictures within the Gallery)

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House will be open through June 14 at the Aldyn Residences, 60 Riverside Boulevard, between 62nd and 63rd Streets; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, until 8 on Tuesdays and Thursdays; noon to 5 p.m. Sundays; (212) 755-5733, Tickets are $30.

Aqua... {Fashion}

You can probably tell I get a little distracted by bright and shiny things, but this outfit is perfection!

I am not sure if "aqua pants" would fall into the "white pant" category and needn't be seen on anyone over a size 6, I am willing to give it a try* (In the change rooms).

Autumn Leaves

It sure is Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere, after a massive week in the office it is great to spend a little time recharging the batteries in the fresh country air. We went to St Albans/ Wisemans ferry last weekend and I couldn’t help taking these beautiful pictures of the change in seasons.

High Gloss White {DIY}

I finished a little DIY over the weekend, I had a Few thrifted Frames lying around for quite some time waiting for the High Gloss Treatment. All the below frames were under $2 Each.

Always make sure you use interesting newspapers or magazines to paint on.  
In my case any trashy magazine will do. 
A Damp Chux/ wash cloth works a treat also.  

One of my besties & I.

I love how old photos were dated, so much more romantic than looking at image properties to find out the date a photo was taken.
