We are fortunate to live in a street with friendly neighbours. Each year we exchange Christmas gifts with the neighbours next to us. They are usually small thoughtful presents carefully selected. But this year our neighbour must have telepathy. In our little collection of goodies including lovely jams and shortbread was a pair of red and white chinoiserie plates. They are absolutely perfect for our red sitting room. A soon as they were unwrapped Max and I immediately had the same idea as to where to place them. Our red sitting room has quite a few Chinoiserie pieces and I am always on the look out for more little treasures. These plates are perfect to add more style to our mantlepiece. It was just lacking something. These plates reinforce the theme in a subtle way and are a bit bigger to draw in your eye. Thank you very much Margaret for your fabulous present.
Hi I am Elizabeth an interior designer who lives in Melbourne, Australia in a little Californian Bungalow cottage with my partner, Max, who is also an Interior Designer, and our beloved furry children, Doris & Ernest. I believe that design can make our lives more rewarding and productive. I love, architecture and design theory but my everyday passion is fabrics and decoration, as I don't think we should get too serious but have fun with our homes and enjoy the process of creating our own environments. I am interested in classic cars, and collect Georgian and Mid Century furniture.
