Well it’s coming together – my new study and Oceania’s headquarters, but instead of showing the grand picture, I’m going to focus in on the details, these are the fascinating elements that make up a rooms personality and reflect that special feeling.

I also get to showcase my Art Directors skills (yes, I was an Art Director in London) and my Stylist skills – because both super compliment one another in visual storytelling.
Oceania’s living mood board on my study wall, as you can see I’m having an AD ball with Coral Paintshop.
Lets take some more peeks…
Treasured airmail letters from my Nanna.
Mushroom coral sitting atop a Tiffany box – classic.
On my desk sits this beautiful pink conch shell with a vintage copy of Ian Femmings Thunderball – very James Bond.
A collection of pebbles found at the beach, Charlie my exhuberent puppy just loves these.
Although I do love tropical, I’m also a sucker for vintage particulary if it’s in my signature colour.
I love these Martha Stewart boxes, big enough for all kinds of wonderful delights.
This ceramic pineapple was a gift from Island Collections. I adore it and quite like this purple rendition.
On Oceania’s door hangs an unusual natural palm wreath from Wheel & Barrow, I had thoughts on decorating it but I love it just the way it is – natural
My study is full of baskets, this little hand basket sits on my shelves because it’s just too cute to be stored away in the wardrobe.
My vintage Hawaiian dress, picked up in Glebe, Sydney for an absolute song, now makes a great wall hanging.
I told you I love this pineapple.
I have pots, jars, baskets, containers just about everywhere, this one sits on my desk and frequently gets raided by my 7 year old!
So as you can see I had a ball this afternoon snapping happily away to give you all an insiders peek of where it all happens.
So if my quirky work catches your eyes editors, art directors, stylists, magazines, TV etc. out there drop me a line – I love doing this stuff!
I’d also love to hear from you all on what details make up your special study area.
