New Store: The Inside

I was approached by a new store in New Zealand called The Inside. The Inside is a new online store selling designer wallpaper, curtains, cushions and other accessories at great prices.This morning when I visited The Inside's Blog and saw the last blog post, it really made my day. Check out the post!
Being mentioned on the same page with Florence Broadhurst is pretty inspiring. I really needed that! :-) Especially now, when I'm thinking about new designs and trying to fit some design time into my crazy schedule with a baby! Thanks Rebekah!

Black and White Rococo Rug at Jane Hall's

Jane Hall is in the process of redesigning her own home and so far it looks fantastic. Unmistakably Jane! Daring and gorgeous colours everywhere, a real feast for the eye. See more pictures of the transformation at her website.
I was honoured to have two of my Black and White Rococo rugs in her beautiful new home. They look great with the decor.

Pink Flamingo Wallpaper at Roomy

A couple of weeks ago we were at Roomy Interiors to check out their new decor. The store looked gorgeous bursting with colour. The new "Miami Style" included a lot of pinks, and the decor was bright, fun and summery. They used my Pink Flamingo wallpaper on one one the walls. Here are a few pictures.

Red Rococo Rug

I received this picture from Meera, who used a Red Rococo rug in her study. She also wrote me a nice note that made my day:  " I am very happy with the rug. My study is so warm and cozy that I actually study in it, unlike before." I'm glad the rug brightens up her living space. Thanks Meera! :-)

Wallpaper - The Ultimate Guide

Yesterday I received the Wallpaper - An Ultimate Guide by Charlotte Abrahams. I was so excited I ripped the packaging open pretty well right after the mailman left. I have two of my wallpaper patterns in the book. What's really cool is, that a German art director saw my Koi fish design in this book and ordered two rolls for a movie called "Unsere Farm in Irland".

I haven't had time to do a lot of design work lately. Benjamin, our Bean is 4 months and a week now, and pretty well taking up my whole day. Today I'm lucky because he's having a good nap, but some days he only sleeps half an hour at a time during the day. Here is a recent picture of him. :-)

Print & Pattern Book

Today I received my order from Amazon with the "Print & Pattern" book in it. A while ago Bowie Style, the writer of Print & Pattern blog asked for submissions for her upcoming book and two of my prints made it! This time we didn't get a free copy of the book, but I didn't mind buying it from Amazon. It's definitely another eye candy! Packed with beautiful patterns for pattern freaks like me. :-) Here are my pages from the book.

Introducing Benjamin

I haven't dropped by for a long time... The last couple of months have been insanely busy, with the birth of our baby, the Interior Design Show, moving and new projects.
Here are a few pictures of Benjamin:

The IDS went really well. I never made it to the show though. My Honey, Ed did the setup (the same day Benjamin was born) and the tear down and five of my friends helped out at the booth. Thanks again Toni, Gwyneth, Val, Margie and Chamila.

Check out some pictures:

First of all, happy new year to everybody! I hope that 2010 will be a healthy, happy and successful year for all!

In December I had an article on, an online magazine by Ombrello Media. Ombrello Media publishes several online magazines on design, architecture and other topics. The article is in Hungarian, and if you're interested you can check it out here.

January will bring an interesting start for the new year. I'm preparing for the Interior Design Show in Toronto, which coincides with the arrival of our first baby. It's going to be hectic, but we're hoping to manage.... Doing a show by itself is stressful, not to mention having a first baby, and the two together will definitely be a challenge.
