Turn this Online magazine cover into a room

I did it! Anoushka's bed is officially high gloss Hermes orange (or Bristol Rum Orange, to be precise)! You may remember this post where I talked about my plans for her new room. Well, bits have stuck and other bits have fallen away and I might just need to fill you in on the new agenda. But lets step back and admire my handiwork for a minute:

Only one coat done, but I'm loving it sick! So here's the (new) inspiration board - In the form of that swoony Massucco Warner Miller bedroom featured on the cover of Ivy & Piper:

(below) And here's my own little "get the look" that I have all ready to go:

(above) 1. Pop by Sheridan "Jiro" pillowcases ($9.95 each) I bought two from here. How awesome are they!

(above) 2. Rectangular silk "Safari" cushions ($69 each). I bought two from here.

(above) 3. Went to Ikea with Bellamumma on Tuesday and bought the popular-to-boot Tarnby rug (popular for good reason - it's such a good buy).

(above) 4. Also bought a Lykta table lamp in white. And, um just $24.95!

5. (above) Following my own advice in this post (and an oldie, but a goldie) I simply had to be a member of the "For Like Ever" club! (It's on it's way from here!)

(above) 6. Going to add a Table Tonic Moroccan Leather Pouffe in either Powder Pink or Fuschia...

(above) 7. And you may remember, this is her little bedside table (eBay), which I've already undercoated and will paint in Dulux high gloss "Vivid White".

So why did the virtual moodboard change so dramatically? A couple of reasons. a) Mr Tonic vetoed wallpaper altogether and b) I got the guilts for not giving my daughter a room with even just a little bit of pink. Well, I hope you dig it!

(above) In other news? I got a haircut today. Rather love it! Happy weekend Tonic-ettes! x


  1. Oh I wish I was brave enough to cut my hair - it looks fabulous. Oh and 'hermes' orange, classic!


  2. Hi Louise, It's about a year now, since I cut my loooong hair into this cut, and I am so happy I did!! Love how your cut is shorter in the back, very chic!! PS. That orange bed frame is COOL, can't wait to see the finished project!!

  3. I love orange!!
    And nice haircut !!!

  4. I love all the elements you are using for your daughter's bedroom...the bed color is just fab!!!

  5. I'm just so glad you're posting stuff from Straya, and therefore accessible. Thankyou and thankyou and thankyou once again.

    I've been stuffing around looking for the right orange paint for a while - and you may just have provided it! And not a Benjamin Moore, and therefore unavailable, paint.

    And the pillow cases - fabby. I've been so frustrated trying to find some nice funky prints that I've ended up getting some geometric stencils sent from the UK. And now I find it's been available here all the time!

  6. Great haircut Lou, you look stunning!!!
    Enjoy the beach.
