Modern L.A. wedding

Today I spotted this wonderful, unique wedding on Pinterest and couldn't help but share!
I love this couple - the wedding is so wonderfully quirky, right down to the personalised embroidered jackets that the bridesmaids wear!

Art: Ken Done

I'm currently reading this book:


It's a pretty good read. Ken Done has led a fascinating life and I really like his tongue in cheek attitude to life. I was one of countless Australian children who had Ken Done bedding. This was my quilt cover as a child - part of Ken's famously successful bedding collaboration with Sheridan. 


I also remember seeing this:


In 1988, Australia held the World Expo in Brisbane. My dad drove my best friend and I the 13 hours there and back to visit. Ken Done's Australia lettering is fantastic on the Australian pavilion. I was only 15 but I remember being amazed by the architecture on some of the pavilions.

Some of Ken Done's wonderfully colourful artwork. It was interesting to read in the book that he is very influenced by Matisse.

Skater girl party

Today's party idea is for a rad Sk8 party for girls!

This would be a gr8 idea for a tween girl's birthday party that isn't too girly, but is totally cool.
You could hold the party at home (or a friend's house with a half pipe!) or even outside at your local skate park.

Tile it up

Over on Pinterest I've been lusting over some very pretty bathrooms, particularly the tiles. 
There are some seriously stylish bathrooms out there and it's lovely to see lots of colour and texture, rather than white-on-white.
