Kangeroos, Hugh Jackman...

The Outback, Anna Spiro and Vogue Living. These are just a few of the things Australia has that we don't.

Have you seen Anna's blog, Absolutely Beautiful Things? If not stop by immediately.

All these images are from her portfolio.

There is something for everyone.
Pops of pink and blue in almost every room.

Her design style makes me think of happy, warm days at the beach. What could be better?

Vogue Living recently featured her fabulous home.

You can check it out here.

Oh, I am so embarrassed! I didn't know she was going to hang my portrait!!

(If only, right?)

I've been looking for a replacement for Domino and Cottage Living. I am enjoying Canadian House and Home, although I fell asleep looking at this latest issue. Note to CH&H, I don't wait all month for my latest magazine from our neighbors up north so I can curl up and sleep!! I need color, excitement, a little spice in my decorating life!! So, I decided to get Australian Vogue Living. Until I saw the price. Almost $85 at Amazon. And for that you get 6 issues!! Six! Not even 12. Forget about it!! I'll read about it on the blogs!


  1. Love the pops of pink in her designs.

    Yeah- I would wait and read about those homes on blogs as well. $85 might could be considered IF it were for 12 issues!!

  2. agree. 12 issues for 85 is expensive as hell but at least it's justifiable. love anna's blog.

  3. I agree with blueprint bliss, I love the pink. I love how it is very modern, without being super girly.

  4. I love all the pops of pink! I also really like the patterns she chooses. Lovely!

  5. Hi there, I just made you the recipient of an award on my blog. I hope you'll take a minute to check it out.

  6. you won an award! Congrats. And you make me laugh with your portrait and your snoozy self. I also thought CH&H was a big disappointment this month. Love Anna's blog and all her color. Her pink table/shelf reminds me of Betsy's green one. xo.

  7. I love the cute pink chandelier. It looks adorable.

  8. I can’t wait to grab a copy of vogue living. Thanks for featuring the magazines here on your blog.
