Came across this image from Design Shrine and just had to post it. Love the simplicity of this room, the colours look great together, my favourite part has to be those pendant lights ... I wonder where I can find some of those?
Now to my fab W.A.C. finds ......
Don't you just love the Woolloongabba Antiques Centre (W.A.C.), not only does it have great retro finds but yesterday I bought this Mimco wallet for $14 (yes, Mimco - not a fake). It is in great condition, I still can't believe the price!
Now the best part ....
OMG, I bought this cocktail cabinet which sits in my office from Vinnies for $40 a couple of months ago (used for storage). Imagine my surprise when I saw an identical one yesterday at W.A.C. for $495!!!! Turns out it is by Fred Lowen who is an Australian designer (think Tessa Lounges)! I still can't believe it - okay mine did have some stickers on the front which you can see I have removed, and I still need to refinish the surface ..... but don't you just love it when you find a treasure!! By the way, the print sitting on the top right hand side is by Tsk Tsk, she does beautiful work.
Hello .... My name is Michelle, welcome to my blog. I am an artist and serial home renovator living in Brisbane, Australia. I enjoy looking for treasures in op-shops and antique stores, and have a love of modern interiors with a mid century modern, or vintage/retro vibe. This site is about my life, my love of designing, and the creation of my paper art.
I am currently studying interior design so part of my blog serves as a place to hold my growing collection of "interior inspirations".
Thank you for visiting. I would be delighted if you took the time to leave a comment.

Each of my designs are taken mainly from exquisitely illustrated 1950's/60's/70's books. Most of these books are sourced from op-shops and, having been loved by others, are often damaged in some way. My art brings stories to life setting free beautiful illustrations that may otherwise remain shelved and unread.
