Spring is in the air

Spring! It feels so nice to turn the heater off, open the windows and let the beautiful fresh spring air into the house!

The prospect of spring has us feeling awake and motivated so we are doing some renovations at our little home in Brisbane.

In need of some ideas ... I was sent a link to Dwelling Gawker by Trudy at Veggie Num Num (thx Trudy!) at just at the perfect time and have started gawking for inspiration!! ... and all this daydreaming has brought me back to an old favorite of mine...

If I could have any house I would have one designed by world renowned Mexican Architect Luis Barragan. He was born in1902 and was a major influence on the modern movement. His works are what he describes as 'emotional architecture'. His use of light, colour & space helped achieve this emotional connection to the surroundings and as he famously quoted "Any work of architecture which does not express serenity is a mistake".

Back to reality now.. and onto sourcing a variety of vintage door handles for my newly built wardrobe! (Thx  husband!)

brisbane a la mode!


  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
