Day Dreaming


I’ve bought a number of pieces from Exhibition a but alas one of my favourite pieces from their online store, by American Poet and Painter Rene Ricard is unfortunately no longer available. If you are one of the lucky ones who happens to have this hanging on your wall I hope it takes you away to that faraway place, that little piece of paradise you may or may not have been to yet, but is often in your dreams.

Island Life


As I write this post the Easter long weekend has just ended and its raining outside. Autumn has definitely hit Melbourne and while it may be my favourite season I find myself dreaming of exotic locations, lying by the pool or on the beach, sipping cocktails and listening to one of my favourite holiday soundtracks, Island Life, by Grace Jones.
