Getting there and other things...

Have you missed me? Well, it's already been a monster of a year and I know I have been neglecting you but there have been other priorities - noisy ones that demand a lot of attention and messy ones that require a lot of cleaning - suffice to say other than a rather large project [which I will share with you in this post] its been all babies and toddlers at this end [well one of each anyway].

I have an inbox overflowing with design news that I haven't had a real moment to even look at and I do miss it all, so over the next week - I'm getting there. There being creating some organisation in my week so I make sure I have time for catching up on design news and passing the best of it on to you, there being blogging about best of Decoration + Design that was held in Melbourne this month and there being getting in some much needed exercise to crack those last baby kilos [walking around the trade show counts doesn't it?] - do you think it will be too much for one week? We shall see - in the meantime what about that project I wanted to share with you?

The big project I was very fortunate enough to work on in the first half of this year was for Godfrey Hirst Carpets producing their Wall 2 Wall magazine which I am happy to say I have been a part of since its inception back in 2006 [you can see back issues of the magazine here]. This issue is bigger and better and I just love the way it's all come together. The styling was a huge effort [and only one of the hats I wore in this job] but well worth it as I'm sure you will agree when you see the amazing photography done by Chris Daile of CI studios.

So here is a small sample of the work we did - head to Godfrey Hirst Carpets and order your free copy of the magazine, I assure you it will be worth the click.

This is one of the four trends highlighted in the magazine - 'Urban Rural' a combination of modern elements & decor and colour inspired by rural life. I love the use of branches in the amazing Chandelier and side table.

A gorgeous coloured carpet from the 'Floral Fantasy' trend.

Make sure you order your free copy and check out Wall 2 Wall Issue 4 for full details on the carpet and the decor in these images. OK off to get organised, lets not make it so long between catch up's again OK?
