rules of inspiration

The beauty about "inspiration" is that
it comes with no strings attached
And rules? None



I often get inspired by the simplicity
of everyday objects
nature, pretty colours, kind words.
How about you?
What do you find inspirational in your world?

Here's what's caught my eye this week so far:

~ owls ~
design sponge

~ unusual colour combos ~
there's nothing more personal than your very own colour scheme
dare to be different...
design traveller

~ handwriting ~
beautiful, irregular, big or it all

~ the colour purple ~
used in unexpected places

~ modern wisdom ~
wise words by everyday heroes and legends of the world
table tonic

Simply beautiful :)

Have a fantastic + inspirational day

Sacrum or profanum?

What happens to the "soul of the place" when a conversion takes place?
And what happens when the sacred becomes profane?
The amazing (church) conversions below (and the idea for this post) were found at "design traveller" (one of my favourite blogs). Check it out here (you won't be disappointed, I promise)

white rabbit restaurant and bar, singapore

500 years old building in Barcelona

Converted church building in Cape Town 

Have a fantastic day :)

A wordy post





It doesn't matter how you say it
if you feel it show it
if you don't know how
write it...

Have a great day :))

Tuesday obsession

Hi everyone! Thanks for all your comments over the past few days, I feel much better today :))

I'm reading this month's issue of Inside out magazine, it's packed
with gorgeousness as usual...So I'm in a bit of a dream mode at he moment and would like to share 
some of my favourites...

~ The aussie beauty ~

Chelsea De Luca is a fine jewellery designer, I love her style...and her home is gorgeous!

~ A natural vision ~

If you are like me and you love organic materials and soft palettes you will love
 this Melbourne terrace, it's packed with beautiful features...

~ The overseas dream ~

This former mechanic's garage in Milano was transformed by brazilian born architect 
Ricardo Bella Dias...
it's now a stunning home...sigh!

Don't forget to take extra care of yourselves, it's winter time down-under and our bodies need
~ Healthy stuff ~
than usual!

So let's start squeezing those oranges, lemons and grapefruits and
create yummy fruity drinks packed full of vitamins  
- we are going to need them to get through the next six weeks or so -
(if time is not on your side)
just grab a boost...yum!

Wish you all a happy + healthy week :))
