Well, I don't know what the weather is like where you are but in Brisbane it is raining and a little chilly. It's days like these I feel like getting into my slippers, pouring a hot cup of cocoa and curling up with a good book ..... of course this would be made all the more pleasant with a fire to cosy up to. Both the above images show very different homes, the first shows a laid back style bordering on shabby chic - those squishy cushions look so inviting, while the second image is of a modern interior warmed up by loads of books - love how the television fits next to the fire - it would be hard to know where to look! So, while I carry on working I'll dream of a beautiful winter retreat with a fire to curl up in front of! Hope you are warm and dry where you are ... which look suits your style best?
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.
