Because home is the best place to be on a rainy day, isn’t it? Excuse me for the large caption, a lot of you ask about where all the things around my place are from so I thought I’d write them out for you :-) The mid-sem break last week was a welcome time to not just catch up on all the lectures I had missed whilst in Sydney, but also find the time to frame the rest of my prints and design my polka dot feature wall. I managed to let my wall decal stickers sit still for two months before being motivated enough to get them on my wall. In my head it felt difficult to create the perfect scatter of polka dots but the reality was that it really was quite simple.. I’ve managed to liven up my day bed (aka my old bed) up with a massive haul from Westfield and as well as a fun purchase from the H&M launch party (H&M Melbourne has a home range!) and a bright fluoro Tutti Frutti one from Rachel Castle. The other day I picked up a salt lamp from Ishka – it’s not quite appropriate for bedside reading but it’s bright enough for everything else. And finally, after many hours of consideration, I ended up making a decision on which laptop case to house my Thinkpad Yoga in. Interior wise, things are finally moving forward, just a few more touches here and there before I go onto a much needed revamp of my studio!
