launch day saturday

deep down in pitch documents, conceptual drawings and prop sourcing at the moment.

however, will manage to pop out on saturday to two launches.

(lovely how they have been co-ordinated for the same day,. a couple of hours apart,.. and not too far away from each other!)

the first is the launch of mr jason grant's new murabond colour range.

the new range is inspired by summer and the gorgeous colours around bondi beach.

i have these sample pots on my desk and i am itching to get the 'deep sea dreaming' onto *something*.  it is a gorgeous, rich, almost metallic colour.  paired back with some wood and a little gold, it will look divine.

the second launch is of sibella court's new book.

In my latest book ‘Nomad’, I have created a beautiful photographic collection of travel shots & styled spaces to show how to bring your travels home in the most unexpected of ways. It will sit comfortably beside ‘Etcetera’ and is brimming with decorating tips and inspiring pictures. I globetrot-ed and treasure hunted to Syria, Mexico, Italy, India and Japan. I was influence by everything from door knobs and street signs to roadside shrines and household brooms- many things that often go unnoticed. I use the ideas, photographs and mementos from my travels to inspire room settings in stunning private residences through simple, practical and surprising ways showing that any decorative background can be restyled with travel touches. My philosophy is about adding and subtracting, rearranging and recycling, transforming and rethinking a space to reflect your personality, lifestyle and adventures. Make it organic & sustainable! You do not have to recreate your entire interior for that special reminder of your trip. ‘Nomad’ will help open your eyes to what’s around you and fuel your imagination long after the suitcase is unpacked. Plus there’s a reference list in the back of all my fav shops, books and hotels that I found & used along the way!

thanks sibella!

should be a lovely saturday.

Jason Grant's paint range looks perfect for what I'm looking for. I need to advise on the colours for the outside of a 1960''s built Apartment building, right near the sea.
Where can I view this new range? I'm in Newcastle NSW
