More Square Blocks!

These are our colonial blocks in the new study. I think this architectural feature is so elegant and originates in the Georgian period as it does tend to follow a classical style. The photos aren't great as they are not face on but some of the detail is apparant. I also found some 1920's Tour de France photographs that I placed on the other wall. Andrew is a cycling nut and Le Tour is his holy grail! Have a great night!

This room is lovely, I saw the makeover and it looks like a very tranquil place to sit and read. I love the detailed architraves too.

Oh my your blog is stunning as is your home...merci beaucoup for the lovely comments on my blog La Pink Paperie ! Love love love that wall color, you'll have to tell me what it is !@? So fresh and beautiful with that stunning white bookcase unit.

By the way, you had asked about the Marie Antoinette lampshades ! They will be available as soon as my own samples arrive in the next few days.

Fiona the blue cushions were from Lily G in Brisbane but I have that fabric..... it is a Warwick blue and it is lovely. You could check with Lily G or I could get them made up for you and send them over to Perth. I do like to mix dark antique pieces of furniture with whites, blues etc..... I think the contrast is fantastic and I actually think it highlights the patina of the wood. Also, I think it has a fresh contemprary look to it.
Paulette I am very excited about those lampshdes .... can't wait to see them come in!
