Brass Sea Creatures

My love affair with all things brassy and golden in colour
will never fade. And that's why I've totally fallen for
these brass sea creatures available from Adorn Homewares.
The brass crabs, fish and shell would all look perfect on a
styled coffee table or placed on a stack of books on a shelf.

Click here to check them out on Adorn Homewares' website.

reached the 50% mark on Pozible, raising funds

PAINT PLACE'S 2014/15 COLOUR FORECAST

Paint Place has just released its annual trend forecast
for 2014/15. This year's colours were developed by
trend forecaster Lucy Sutherland and were brought to
life through various room settings by Melbourne stylist
Deb McLean. This year's four themes are: Vintage
Luxe, Palm Springs, Forge Ahead and Shibori Style.

Vintage Luxe (as pictured in the 2 images above) is all
about embracing the glamour of yesteryear with deep
violets, dusty pinks and subtle greys combined with the
luxury and warmth of copper accessories and plush fabrics.

The Palm Springs trend is all about having fun with a
touch of sophisticated retro. A fresh palette of cool blues,
crisp whites and a burst of yellow. Finish the look with
timber or cane furniture, with touches of lush foliage.

Forge Ahead is a look that seeks out the old and breathes new
life into loved or forgotten objects. This deep moody palette has an
industrial edge with dark charcoals, lush greens and rich eggplant.

Shibori Style looks to the timeless and refined colours
reminiscent of the traditional Japanese art of Shibori.
Refined indigo shades sit alongside intricate patterning
offset by powdery whites, deep denim and watery blues.

If you want to know more about these colour trends head to Paint
Place's website: www.paintplace.com.au or pop into a store near
you, for a trend forecast colour card with all 4 of these looks.
