LOVE AT 1ST SIGHT. I swear this Sydney based company is reading my mind! 

I stumbled across their website yesterday and found the 'Graffiti Stole My Heart' collection, as you can see it is exactly what I was thinking of doing for our dining chairs....

Love at 1st Sight sources pieces from auction houses, markets or even the side of the road. They  collaborate with artists and designers to transform their finds into one off masterpieces. 

They also have these wicker chairs....which are so perfectly kitschy and what I was hoping of finding for our balcony. 

I don't intend to go out and buy all of this furniture or anything, however it is interesting to see how others have turned the ideas I have into a reality.

DINING CHAIRS. I am BRIMMING with ideas for our dining chairs. I couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about this so much. 

The plan is to buy some amazing chairs for next to nothing, possibly at Leonard Joel, cover them with canvas and then commission an artist to paint them.

I am so excited to start this project!

MORE MIRRORS. You would be forgiven for thinking I am extremely vain, considering how often I seem to be writing about mirrors. 

The truth is I don't actually like looking at myself, I just like the qualities mirrors exude (reflection, light, distortion). 

I saw the mirror below at Space Furniture, it is like nothing I have seen before. So stunning I'm actually considering purchasing it, regardless of the large price.

These organically shaped mirrors are pretty amazing too, and nowhere near as expensive...

I wonder if there is anywhere I can get mirrors like either of these examples made to my specifications??

BAD FENG SHUI/ GALLERY WALL. I am so sure that the arrangement of my couch and chairs was shocking feng shui. 

Life was just not good for me for a while. The living room didn't feel right, but I wasn't sure how to fix it.... eventually Will and I just moved the couch and chairs around a bit. There is SUCH a better vibe now and life is good again, it's quite amazing, it makes me want to research further into feng shui. 

Since we figured out the problem of the BAD VIBE in the house, I have been able to concentrate on things like hanging artwork and photographs in little gallery arrangements like these below. 

We decided to have a mixture of artwork and family photos, using all different kinds and sizes of frames.

I also have a few old mirrors that I've collected, that I want to somehow incorporate. 

Each frame has 20mm between it and the next frame. This looks pretty good, although as we add to the wall, this might have to change.

Apart from having a good gallery wall with a mixture of frames and sizes, the room above is so pretty! The chairs remind me of the ones at The Millswyn...

I will possibly do a future post on The Millswyn, the interiors are gorgeous and the food is not bad either.
