Feeling artistic? Do you feel the need to sculpt something? Want to change the way your window treatment looks everyday? Well check out this amazing magentic curtain I first saw on Designer's Block's blog. The curtain is designed by Florian Kräutli. He said the Magnetic Curtain is "a curtain which you can shape to any form". He has embedded magnets in the curtain fabric allowing the user to shape the curtain. Love it.

All images from Stanislav Katz
Absolute 'eye candy', each piece has a whimsical excitment about it. These beautiful designs are from the mysterious Stanislav Katz. I think something is lost in the translation in regards to the names of each piece.

Carafe - designed by Matt Sindall
St Peter - 8xmille - cocktail squeezer, designed by Giulio Iacchetti
I came across Pandora Design via an Italian home magazine Casaidea. It featured this plastic cutlery as "Plastica Chic" and I couldn't agree more. The gold cocktail squeezer - St Peter 8xmille is sooo cool. Their website is well worth a visit. Lots and lots of fabulous designs. No online store at this stage.

These lacy numbers are by BenabeiFreeman. Rina Bernabei and Kelly Freeman began working together in 2002. Between them they have industrial design and lighting backgrounds. Who would of thought perforated aluminium panels could be so beautifully decorative. The Peony Floor Lamp and the Lace Pendant Light are my favourites from these two amazing ladies. Click here to see all their designs. BenabeiFreeman products are distributed by Living Edge.

I noticed a good looking Smeg FA Porche Rangehood in last weekend Sunday Times New Homes section, which got me thinking. What is the best looking rangehood on the market. Well, for me, I think I found it! The Star from Elica Collection. I can't believe it is a rangehood, an elegant, sophisticated and decorative light fitting yes, but a rangehood? WOW.

The Vogue Sideboard from Fanuli Furniture is one of those pieces I dream about owning. In my dream it sits in my bedroom and is clearly visible when I walk down the long hall way towards my bedroom. It sits there boldly and in perfect symmetry. Errr sorry, waking up now... it's made of solid timber and finished in a shiny silver lacquer. It is designed by an Italian company Grande Arredo . Very, very nice, don't you think?

Photo from Cloth
This beautiful linen and cotton blend upholstery fabric is inspired by one of our wonderful Australian trees the Golden Wattle. I was instantly drawn to the colour combination and its vintage vibe. This design is called Wattle Sunny and also comes in two other colours, Wattle Night (black and white combination) and Cloudy (grey and white). Cloth is a small independent company which works mainly with hemp and linen. Julie Paterson, owner and designer has been making screen printed textiles by hand since 1995.

What a pretty collection ... ideally I would love to collect each plate individually and tell stories about how I found each and everyone one of them or how my grandmother left them to me or .... but that just isn't me! I must admit I adore the fact that I can buy the whole set in one go and change the ribbons whenever the mood strikes. Huh...reality bites. Victorian Set of 9 Plates from BurkeDecor.com USD125.

I just adore these beautiful marble clad tiles by Decor Marmi. Especially the rose pattern as seen in this picture. The pictures really do not do the product justice. The tiles have a 3 dimensional effect and are absolutely striking. It is a modular system offering both geometric and flower patterns. Seen at Abitare il Tempo.

I love the view of Freshwater Bay. People fishing off the jetty, rows and rows of white boats moored and awaiting direction. Sailing enthusiasts crisscrossing the river and me standing on the balcony watching it all go by. (Err why I am I selling this again.) It will be auctioned on the 19th of January. You can see more photos on realestate.com.au just type this i.d. number 104519957 in for direct access.
