Book Bliss

My copy of 'At Home With White' by Atlanta Bartlett has arrived and it's so beautiful I can't tear myself away from it. I know that an all-white look is rather limiting, but these photographs are so gorgeous. I wouldn't say that totally white is my exact style, but it's a good basis and then a little colour can be added. The photos above the bookcover are from Atlanta's website, Beach Studios.

More David Hicks

After a bath in a bedroom, the second item on my wish-list would be a curtained bed. Once again, David HIcks does this look so well. It doesn't look too girly - just streamlined and elegant and simple.

No Chintz

These are some material samples from No Chintz, a Sydney store I love. They're fresh, light and summery.

Dream kitchen

This photo is from Inside Out magazine Nov-Dec 2007 from a story on the Hobart house of Charlotte Bell and family. Every room of this beautiful house is a feast for the eye.

French Style

Some beautiful images from my favourite Sydney shop, Ici et La. They all share the quality of timeless elegance. The last one looks like a still life oil painting.

This David Hicks wallpaper is exquisite. So are the fabrics pictured above them.

Mirror and mantle

Just two examples of how David Hicks' unerring sense of what is beautiful is still influencing design today. This beautiful Venetian glass mirror still looks fresh and elegant. The arrangement on the mantle in the photo above it is also timeless.

A laid-back, beachy stye

These photographs from Bountiful Home show the essence of laid-back beachy living. With style. And beauty.

I love a bath in a bedroom

I love the idea of a bath in a bedroom. This beautiful photo of a David Hicks bedroom says it all. Or maybe it's a bathroom after all. There is a bath in a bedroom at Charleston, Vanessa Bell's home in Sussex.

Another bath in a bedroom

This is also a David Hicks room. Not sure whether it's a bedroom or bathroom either. Absolutely gorgeous.
