my latest flower wall…
Posted in interiors, nature, pia's photos, sydney July 31st, 2012 by pia

A while ago I mentioned in this post about our houseboat in Amsterdam that I’d show you my new flower wall installation. Well, here it is. It’s been established for a while now, and evolves with newly deceased blooms, ferns, and whatever catches my eye when I wander…

It’s also become a bit of a sweet memories collection from friends – the peonies are from Kylie who sent a lovely bunch when I was ill last year, the gum nut branches and ferns are from dear Tracey Deep,Β  and in the first photo at the very top right you can see a bloom made from paper by Natalie.Β  Although these photos were taken for a shoot many months ago, the wall hasn’t changed much since then, but the books have been moved to a less precarious ‘baby safe’ place. Here’s another corner of my new home…

There are some great flower walls being created out there, I particularly love this one from rubi-jones , found on instagram. Have you tried creating one in your home? If so I’d love to see.

Posted in (blog)house news, blog favourites July 24th, 2012 by pia

In case you’re wondering, I am still posting regularly out here in the blogosphere, but not here in the lovely (blog)house. Instead, I’ve been busy ‘setting up house’ over at the new Country Style blog, posting about all sorts of decorating/interiors/travel stuff. I will be back in the (blog)house with more regular posts soon, but for now I’ve discovered one blog and one baby is plenty to keep me on my toes. Here is a list of some of my recent posts at Country Style, I hope you enjoy…
