Megan Morton, Stuart Membery & Tiki Love.....

My favourite issue of Vogue Living (July/August) has just come out! 
It features the Sydney home of Stylist Megan Morton, as well as designer Stuart Membery's bali retreat.  Seriously, so good.


Vogue Living Australia cover, July/August 2012

"A wall arrangement typifies stylist Megan Morton’s gift for creating harmony among
a diverse selection that includes porcelain plates from 
Herm√®s Bleus D’Ailleurs collection,
an ombr√© dipped hand by stylist-turned-trader 
Brydie Brown,
a planter stand from Ikea and a bronze mouse from a St Vincent de Paul op shop
."


Stuart Membery's Bali Retreat






There is also this feature which kills me!  The oversize palm leaf wallpaper, the cane chair, the floral skull & palm cushions, the pineapple chandelier, the rug....  Add a plastic flamingo and my life is complete!


Tiki love.

Blue & White China Love

I'm absolutely getting onboard the blue & white china trend!  I have been collecting for a little while and scattering them around our apartment with plans to create lots of vignettes in our country weekender that we're currently renovating! (Seems the only perfect choice with the white timber panel walls and dark floorboards that we're restoring!)

So many ways to use these lovely classic pieces in your home! 

Loving blue & white china plates hung on a wall in clusters...












Vases & ginger jars set in clusters on a table or mantle 

(especially when filled with some bright pink peonies or smooth blue hydrangeas)... 

















Or dinnerware china of all different shapes, pattern & sizes all displayed in a white wood cabinet...







... or used in beautiful tablescapes set for family & friends, mixed with blue & white napery and silver or bamboo cutlery...












Or perfect as framed artwork...












Or simply as a statement vase in the center of a dining table, coffee table or side table!
