Tres Tintas Nimbus

I spent a serene half hour looking at fabrics in Funkis store Miljo in Bondi this morning and flicked through the latest book of wallpapers from Tres Tintas - stunning patterns and colours. Nimbus has loads of movement and is really elegant in the petrol blue colourway.

Colours of The High Line

These shots are from The High Line in NYC the relatively new urban park constructed on a disused railway. The colours used in this glass installation in this old rail building are so subtly varied and effective and hard to photograph ! You can get an idea of the size from the little man in the second photo.

Bright lights

I have been travelling since I was here last. My husband and I were in Washington DC and New York for a while in September and had such a blast and (for me) inspiring time. So the massive gaps in the posting schedule are mostly due the fact that the only part of the globe I have not traversed in an aircraft in the last two months is the ( relatively if you live in Australia ) short hop from NYC to Dublin. Many firsts - saw the Hollywood sign from the sky as I took off from LA for the first time, visited Anthropologie, first heard of Restoration Hardware ( where had I been ? ) and had the best stay at the Bowery Hotel in NYC. Some serious firsts too - visiting the Holocaust Museum in DC which was incredibly powerful and the person to person tour of Ground Zero which was unforgettable also. Happy to be home and hoping to get blogging.
