(this mat is made from vintage scarves being sewn together...dont know who made it though!)
A delightful collection of photos taken at Dave and Amy's place in Shellharbour. It felt like a stepped into a Real Living Magazine shoot, using Maxwell and Toby (for those who don't know Max is mine and Toby is well, their gorgeous best ever dog!) as little models of how homey it is! I am constantly amazed at how they manage to work in industrial vintage, antiques, random things and even a bit of french shabby chic, and they all just look right alongside each other!
Some inventive ideas I love are Daves many lights - our room had a mason jar light, theirs an old mining light, the spare the lantern above, and of course his copper kitchen lights also above; the use of a pallet upright attached to the garage shed outdoor wall, filled with plants; the chalkboard for kiddies featured above; the spice cabinet made from a vintage crate/box; the hescham coffee bags used to cover the vintage chairs Amy also creatively painted in bright shades, and the cushions Amy made from material I believe she recently picked up in Vietnam. I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting a lot of things... One of the nicest things was catching up with our friends, and seeing Max and Toby get along so well. Oh, and the baked brie with herbs. Mmmm...
Love the mix! Hope you do too.
bye for now,
