Greg Natale for World's Away

I tell you what, Greg Natale has been a very busy guy
lately! Not only is his first book and new Designer Rugs
collection being released today, he's also designed a furniture
collection with World's Away! 'Greg Natale for World’s Away'
was inspired by the Hollywood Regency style featuring the
quintessential Natale twist. With over 10 pieces in the range
the timeless designs include consoles, coffee and dining tables,
étagères and mirrors all finished with sleek metallic surfaces.

And the design inspiration: "I wanted to create modern pieces
of furniture that give a nod to the past, and the striking architecture
and enduring strength of the Colosseum provided me with my
starting point," explains Greg. "I like to work with repeat patterns,
and the Colosseum’s iconic arches offered the perfect inspiration."

Gabrielle's Big Boy Room

How cool is this big boy's room designed by New York-based
interior designers Sissy+Marley? I love the graphic black and
white colour palette with the pops of cobalt blue. Chelsea from
Sissy + Marley explains more about this project: "We had a
blast dreaming up Gabriel's soothing nursery (just a few short
years ago) so when his mommy called upon us to create a
playful and stylish big boy room for him, we were more than
ready for the challenge. Being a bit obsessed with black and
white rooms these days we knew this was the direction we
would take. Graphic, bold, playful and stylish, Gabriel's new
digs are beyond drool-worthy!" We wholeheartedly agree.

My Bedroom - Progress at last!

At long last I have made some progress on the design and
styling of my own bedroom! A couple of months ago I hired
the lovely Viera from VT Interiors to custom-make my lovely
upholstered bed (after falling in love with this Jonathan
Adler bed at JCPenney
). Shipping would have been way
too expensive so I opted to get it custom-made locally. I
chose to upholster the bed in Zander Marble fabric from
Warwick Fabrics - it has a great chunky/woven type of texture
with flecks of white and cream to create a soft neutral look.

I purchased the gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket from
Sally Rhys-Jones
who recently came back from a trip to
Morocco and had brought back with her a whole host of
goodies including wedding blankets and Beni Ourain rugs.
I don't think these pics do it justice, as the little silver
sequins really sparkle when the light hits it. Just magic!

The current bedside tables I have sit way too low and I
know these aren't right for the new bed, but I thought
I'd show you all how it's coming together anyways. I'm
on the hunt for new bedside tables and these ones (click
) have caught my eye! I also need a rug to complete
the room - thinking this one (click here) will work beautifully.

Oh and that lamp will be replaced to something taller.
I've got my eyes peeled for something white or
maybe brass in colour and more substantial in size.
