Just for a Good Laugh

I'm hoping to continue my travel series: profiling various designers and stores around Melbourne and surrounding areas. But for today I'm sending you over to my other blog that is more about my life and random thoughts. I had to write about what happened to me last week and thought everyone who reads this blog would get a good laugh out of my misfortune turned fortune (I would later find out)

This is my more general blog and I hope you all enjoy it! Have a great and lovely tuesday! (or Monday if you are in the states!)

MoNk Design in Williamstown

Have you ever had that overwhelming feeling of excitement walking into a design store? I had that feeling yesterday when we took a quick trip to check out Williamstown. Heading down to the waterfront I glanced through the windows of Monk Designs storefront. And I was sold.

Oversized-stainless steel lighting fixtures counterbalance the luxe, soft fabrics. Beautifully upholstered chairs and supple leather couches took up most of the residence in this fabulous design shop. For anyone settling down in and around Williamstown and needs custom build furniture or a few chair makeovers, I would suggest heading down to Monk Design in downtown.

Blissful Bathrooms

My mom is hopefully re-doing our bathroom soon. She is a muralist (more like was: her 100% effort is now in her business The Fig Tree...which you can find on Etsy. which you should probably check out and buy things because everything she does is fabulous and made with love)
So during her muralist phase she decided to use our house as her canvas. (Minus my room because I insisted on decorating it myself.) But the downstairs nook bathroom became a jungle. Like an actual green, animal, jungle bathroom. Unfortunately its' seen its day, and is ready for a little face-lift.
There are blue floor and sink tiles which will be staying. She emailed asking me for my opinion. And these were what I came up with keeping in mind the navy blue.
an accent blue wall, accompanied with whites, grays and calm shades.
A gray and silver wallpaper, with a fun, graphic mirror.

Gold and blues are the epitome of royalty and luxe. It's so subtle, yet so effective.
