Extended Hiatus

This is a post I never saw coming at the end of last year thats for sure. I've sadly decided to take an extended break from my blog as my heart just isn't in it anymore. I've got a bit going on personally and I'm feeling a little drained and uninspired. Most evenings I sit at my computer to try and compile something constructive and It just doesn't come. I hope I'll snap out of it soon enough, but in the mean time, I apologize for not keeping up with everyone's amazing posts. I do truly miss you all.

Christina Re's China Doll...

This is a classic example of the wonderfully eclectic, vintage style I'm leaning towards this year.
Christina Re is a super talented stationary designer from melbourne Australia. I actually used some of her stunning papers to make my 30th birthday invitations a few years back.

Her gorgeous home is featured in this months Australian country home ideas magazine and was also featured in one of my favourite books - Madison Living.

Just as the magazine states, I LOVE her harmonious fusion of oriental and european vintage and contemporary pieces.

Mixing the old with the new has never looked so chic.

Bold patterns, contrasting colours yet everything looks simplistic and uncluttered.

(please click the images for a much larger view)

Christina states her home is a work in progress and will constantly evolve the more she travels - words to live by :)

Of course the pink tufted armchair is my favourite piece and this particular image with the red birdcage and black side table is an absolute winner!

(please excuse my dodgy scanning hehe)


The gorgeous woman herself :)
love her dress!

This home is such an inspiration to me, I simply can't get enough of it.

Christina Re.
