More from Tord Boontje...I adore these beautiful lampshades. The Shadow Light will enchant young hearts. The lampshade gently turns and the images reflect onto the surrounding walls. The Garland Light shown here in dazzling gold consists of a long metal garland of flowers, forest creatures and foliage that is wrapped around a light bulb.

Domayne finally opened up in Perth a few weeks ago. Of course I found an excuse to pop in and check out their range. As soon as you walk in your hit with these big bold pieces. The St Ives 3 seater sofa packs a punch - upholstered in Warwick's Portsea Onyx (other colours available). The Bravura floor lamp compliments the sofa perfectly with its silhouette curvy base.

Something strange has happened to me since the push to rid our planet of the dreaded plastic shopping bag. Once upon a time I would not give the plastic bag I was carrying a second thought. I would carry my groceries home in them, then re-use the bags as rubbish bin liners. THEN....the tote bag arrived. Sometimes free, sometimes $1 etc. Suddenly I cared where my Tote bag was from, what colour it was, and what it said. I wanted a Donna Hay bag, then Wayne Cooper bag, then, well I won't go on. It's just a bag to carry your groceries home in right? This Lark tote is exactly what I need. 'Keep Calm and Carry On'. Not another word needs to be said on the subject.

Diamantini & Domeniconi Striped Cuckoo Clocks
These two items from Rocket St George in London really appeal to me. I love the idea of giving a traditional piece of furniture a contemporary twist. The hand made Cuckoo Clock is designed in Italy by the famous clock manufacturers Diamantini and Domeniconi. It takes D batteries and the cuckoo can be switched off....not that you would! The Skullduggery chair would look right at home at my place and be a real talking point to boot.
