Easton Pearson "Coromandal": 19.10.12

Those clever ladies at Easton Pearson, Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson have done it again! Another fabulous collaboration with Australian rug company Designer Rugs. As you would expect it is a visual explosion of bright bold colour in gorgeous floral prints. 

Lydia's eclectic Brisbane home, filled with covetable mid-century pieces was the ideal backdrop in which to showcase the collection.

L.A love affair: 18.10.12

I don't know what it is... could it be this beautiful sunny weather, could it be all the colour and print via fashion and home wares that is around at the moment could it be my new found health kick or could it be that Mr.P and I are currently planning an L.A visit? But just at the moment I am having a complete love affair for all things L.A,the city of Angels.

Here is a short list of all things  L.A that I'm loving:
