Seen in Green

Front cover of the Green Magazine in which sean-the-prawn cushions & quilt feature in an article about one of my Husband's home renovations. The house is only a few streets away from where we live & my Hubby designed a beautifully relaxed modern extension at the rear of the quaint coastal old weatherboard cottage. A good friend of our's & an extremely talented photographer Brigid Arnott lovingly styled & photographed the project. The mag has been hanging about in the shops for almost a couple of months & I've only just managed to post about it. Life seems busy, busy,busy of late & blogging has been sidelined for other activities, but that is about to change. So many things I want to share with you lovely lot. Hello.... is anyone still out there?

Large cushion on bed of main bedroom.

Australia cushion & quilt as throw on bed in one of the girl's bedrooms.

Wildflower cushion on cane chair in the other girl's bedroom.

Wildflower & Australian map cushions in living room of the weekender. I love all the doors in various shades of green in the background that open up the living space like gills of a giant fish.

Can you open your home up to let the outside in? I'm forever opening up windows to feel the breeze. I guess some people like dark & cosy, I don't I love loads of sunlight & fresh air.

What a gorgeous house! Your cushions & quilt really suit it too. Well done!

Hooray for blogging again! I find it hard to keep all those balls in the air and find the time to blog too.

Dearest Leah

I picked up this magazine enroute to BH, in Millthorpe, not realising what house was on the cover. I came went back to the house we were staying in,sat down with a cup of tea and lo and behold spotted your cushions and then wow, "I know this house". Made me a bit nostalgic. Fantastic pics.

Much love

Wow! This is wonderful Leah. I have been known to run up the the side lane of this house huffing and puffing, while also have a wonder what was behind those beautifully coloured doors! Your work looks amazing in this quaint cottage! Congrats x
