(above): This is usually the dining room, but currently our bedroom. The mirror is from a shop in Newtown, the chair is ebay, cushions from (top) Bondi markets, (bottom) Country Road, the painting is by Bruno Dutot, the "Zoom" pendant light, one of our biggest renovation "splurges" is from ECC Lighting and Furniture. I love the pinecones in the fireplace (they were there when we moved in).
(above): A lovely little space/nook which runs off the dining room, Jasper's room and the second bathroom. I bought the framed Superman poster last week for $40(!) from my local Salvation Army store, and the carved wooden statues were my husband's, purchased from "a little gallery in (Sydney's) Clovelly".
(above and below): Where the magic happens, people! My desk, tucked under the stairs which lead up to one large attic style 4th bedroom. The orange print was done by my brother-in-law, brass lamp and brass horse, both from ebay, "Mr Impossible" Kartell chair from Space Furniture and "Hudson" desk by Orson and Blake (they make a divine coffee table version of it too).
(above): Anoushka's room. A work in progress, and way too "bare" for my liking but hey, time hasn't exactly been my friend since I first added "motherhood" to my list of credentials almost 6 years ago when I had Jasper. My first Table Tonic piece has settled in nicely here, as you can see, although I may well still sell it. Still haven't decided what colour to paint it, so it remains undercoated until then. Which is fine, I think it actually looks okay. A little "safe", but okay. The throw on the rocking chair is from Piggot's Store in Woollahra, one of my faves.
(above): Beside our couch is a beautiful table my parents "lent" (hi mum, I don't think you're getting it back!) us with another brass lamp, this one from the garden shop at Parkers nursery in Turramurra and more than 10 times the price of the one we later found on ebay, the ceramic flower is from Piggots Store, the silver tray it sits on is also from Parker's and was only $15 (I bought the last 3 in the shop), the blue decanter from ebay and the prints (there's another one above the one shown) also by my brother-in-law.
(above): "My bathroom". Always scores highly in the "Ooooh" and "Ahhhh" department when first-time guests visit. My award winning Architect, I mean husband, designed them along with, oh, our entire house. Visit him and his "projects" anytime over at gdbarchitecture.com.au.
(above): A neglected pile of ebay finds sits on top of a beautiful Art Deco cabinet in the dining room.
(above): My bedside table. Speaks for itself, I think. Another silver tray from Parkers Nursery garden shop lives here. The flowers, I am not ashamed to admit, are fake and have been kicking on for about 5 years now. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Grandiflora!
(above): "Husband's bathroom". Lovely, super-high ceiling and a gigantic skylight (which the spiders just love) overhead.
And Voila! That's it. For now... x All images tabletonic
