Woonbeurs 2012

Here are a few of my pics from the Woonbeurs exhibition at Amsterdam Rai (on till Sunday the 30th Oct), it’s worth a visit if you are an interiors junkie like me, lots of popping neons at one of my fave Dutch design mags 101 Woonideeen‘s colourful stand above.

There’s a bit of a mixed bag in this montage above, the blue wall and the colourful hangers, cushions on a chair and the hat box on top of the armoire are from 101 Woonideeen’s stand again, the fab card rack lamp shade and over sized white chandelier were in the gorgeous VT Wonen stand, another of my Fave Dutch interiors mags. The geo woolens are fromĀ  Seven Gauge Studios, a British label with a lovely collection of lambswool cushions.The fabricated dog walker was on the display for ljmcolour, a paint sepcialist. You can see more of my Woonbeurs pics on my Flickr pages.

I couldn’t get Dexie away from these big bunnies by Fatboy ! Never come between a boy and his bunny.

THAT tree

I am often asked about the gorgeous tree in this photo above with the Moozle plain teepee.

The tree is by Australian company Cocoon Couture, they don’t seem to sell it any more (and never shipped it outside Australia when they did, it was also about $300 Australian dollars), but they do have some other cool stuff including this mini-me tree shelf stand version.

New design – Sherbet-dip

Here are some pics of a new design I have just finished, it is a one-off, not planning to repeat it, so grab it now if you like it. I can personalise it with a name on the other door if that tickles your fancy, just state the name you’d like on the notes/comments section of the order form. I’ve listed it on my Etsy page here. Gotta run, dinners in the oven… oooo multi-task me!

Boot Loot

I picked this vintage wooden typeset draw up (thanks Nuala) at the boot sale a couple of weekends ago, and after a bit of a rush job on the painting (during Dexies nap times when I should have been sewing teepee tents, and with ‘help’ from 5yr old Dolly), don’t look too closely, this is the result, a new home for my nodding dolls. I also used some of the Ferm Living dolls house wallpaper I mentioned in a post a few days ago. Back to the sewing machine now then…
