Now I know this is not the best pic, but this divine sparkling jewelled pendant light is on display in the shop window of Baker & Shuhandler in Mt Lawley. B&S have one of the best window displays in Perth. I have photographed many of their beautiful window displays with the intention of blogging, but my lack of photography skill (to many reflections) has let me down.

Alessi Dot

Mmmmm....loving this Il Bagno Alessi Dot floor standing wash basin in 'black' from Laufen. Designed by Dutch architect Wiel Aret, the slanted form gives the bulky ceramic unit a playful lightness.

Black, Beautiful Black

I seem to be drawn to all things 'black' of late, this amazing lamp is from D'cota in NSW. Normally I would shy away from such luxurious, formal, mansion style furnishings. But a piece of two would be very nice, very nice indeed. Sofa - source unknown.

Dreamy Bedroom

I have had this tear sheet lying around my desk for months. I love the relaxed, not trying to hard, chic styling. And of course I was instantly attracted to the gorgeous bedhead. Florence Broadhurst again...The Cranes. Stylist - Megan Morton. Still Lifes - Amanda Prior

Villeroy & Boch

What a lovely entrance to the bathroom. Symmetry, generous space and for me the perfect balance between contemporary and baroque style. Memento Basin in black from Villeroy & Boch.

More Ikea...I adore these two pieces from Ikea, haven't spotted them in our local store yet but I'm sure they're not too far away. The Ikea PS Karljohan side table is made of solid wood. It could double up as foot stool to. I can imagne it working well in the bathroom, perhaps loaded with fluffy towels. I love the leg design on the Trollsta Tray Table. The turned legs seem to have reference to an antique furniture style. The tray is removable and has an extra wide edge and high sides; prevents spills and makes it easy to carry.

Ikea 2010

I popped into Ikea today hoping to get a glimpse of their new lines before the catalogue hits our mailboxes. The only thing I spotted is that gorgeous Maskros Pendant Lamp. So big, so pretty, so affordable! Feeling dissatisfied at not spotting more, I came home and checked out the Ikea US online catalogue. These are the pages that really popped for me. The Aust catalogue should arrive by the end of the month.

Grohe Icon

I went to Grohe hosted evening recently and was introduced to this amazing space age looking shower head. Grohe have bought something new to the table, the halo shape is inspiring. The Rainshower Icon has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot award for product design 2009. The Icon will be available in Aus within 12-18months from Argent Australia.

Until Dawn

This beautiful floral and fauna curtain panel by Tord Boontje would look wonderful hanging over my fly wire screen door. The panels are made from Tyvek (resistant paper material). The panel is tear and water resistant. Until Dawn (H250cm x W110cm) comes with velcro closure loops as well as holes to hang from hooks or poles. Just what a DYI sort of gal likes to hear. That gorgeous bedroom image was taken by Cornelia Adams via Desire to Inspire.
