Here they are...

The rest of the pictures of Wonen+.  It's up there as one of Mia and my favourite projects this year.  If you haven't been to visit Janien at her shop yet, you sure are missing out.  And what's more she stocks studio number 19 and our very own josephine road products too.  Thanks James Strack for these gorgeous images, view a few more here

ginger and fig

Here they are, as promised, Ginger and Fig taken by a professional lens! Hooray, so much better than my snaps.    Mia and I completed this project earlier this year, bespoke design, right down to the light fittings.  Since opening Zane has been doing a roaring trade, his burger&milkshake nights are so popular you'll be queuing outside if you haven't booked.  Thank you James Strack for the images.

Earlier this week Mia and James Strack shot these pics of Wonen+.  Love them.  These are just a sample of what's to follow, I can't wait to see the rest.  Ginger and Fig also had its portrait taken...though those are still in production.  Not to worry, I'll share them all as soon as I have them in my grasp.  Enjoy this teaser for now...

If only we lived in Finland

Then we could go and see this house during the housing fair.  Alas not, but thank goodness for the internet, so we can still share in all its beauty.  Found here

we are almost there!

We are into the home stretch, and Wonen+ is almost ready for opening!  We have had so much fun with this project, that we had an 'I wish this was going to be my shop' moment during the shopfit.  There are so many details that stand out, though my favourite has to be the brass handles...Below are a few snaps of the almost complete shop.  Hope to see you there next Friday on opening day.

ranch style

Thank goodness that when most needed, a shot of design inspiration is sent...this time through the pages of the latest Elle decoration SA.  These gave me the heads-up that I needed for a project that I am being particularly indecisive about (not a trait I am used to).  Love the comfortable style.  In reality this is the Santa Monica ranch of Elen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, and what a space to get away too.  Additional images via ElleDecor.
