happy weekend

weekendlinks

And oh, how the weekend is already here. Does it seems like the days are flying past us or is it just me? The last time I thought about it, I was lazing about on my front porch enjoying my long summer holiday. And yet to think that in two weeks, we are halfway through the first school term. New York and London fashion week have flown by and Autumn is soon upon us (hooray! I’ve had enough of Perth’s stifling heat and humidity). But before the weekend is over, here are a few weekend links:

one | white on white, beautiful garlands that would be a delight in any room
two | chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, need I say more?
three | lovely geometric jewellery
four | a natural scrub with four simple ingredients
five | what beautiful floors!
six | a citrus wreath, such a different but clever gift

Happy weekend!

Paganin House

07.Iwanoff

Just as summer seems to be winding down, wouldn’t it be a ball to host a glamorous pool party to celebrate the end of a glorious time. And what better venue for this spectacular event than at the Paganin House in Perth, designed by renowned Bulgarian-born architect Iwan Iwanoff.

The reflection of bright lights in the crystal blue water of the pool, the flow of champagne that never seems to stop and the hum of crickets on a balmy evening; the perfect ode to summer. Oh, a girl can dream.

Hope you are having a dreamy day wherever you are.

In the Office: Scandinavian Inspiration

Office02

Just this week, I have purchased a large wooden kitchen bench in the palest of shade available and have ikea-hacked it into a magnificent desk for my piano studio. With the tall black piano striking such a presence my room, I have decided to keep all things clean and simple by gathering items neutral in colour, from the most fragrant white roses to the stacks of boxes in different hues of grey. With it still looking a bit empty, my search for inspiration brings you these lovely Scandinavian rooms and offices.

What do you think? Lovely and open or do you prefer more pops of colour?

Skylights

Skylights.05

My piano studio is looking rather dull and disorganised, and the lack of natural sunlight unfortunately doesn’t make it any better. Looking through these beautiful images of large rooms with sunlight pouring large windows makes me wishful for a little bit more space in the quarters of the house where the sounds from the piano dance in the air like woodland faeries at a spring festival, moving amidst the piles of manuscripts and dancing a slight gigue between Bach and Beethoven.
