Be still my {soft furnished} heart

Some people might buy themselves shoes or clothes when they get paid. Me? Cushions and the like. Or HOT LAMPS. As the case may be. And this was most certainly the case when I spotted this one in my favourite shop down here (made in Melbourne too).

You know when you are all the time looking for something for a certain place in your house for about 2 years? That has been me, and this spot. I’ve had an IKEA number there for years, just doing time, waiting, until now. Now, we are there. Sigh.

It’s love. Simple lampy love. Someone pass me a cigarette…

  3. Bree Di Mattina says

    Oh Freda. You need to see the Freda dolls made by Little Vintage Dolls on IG. very good

  4. Frida………be still my beating heart.

  5. FAB LAMP!
    Well I’ve been nesting like a mad woman lately so we have SO many new things! (huzzah for internet shopping!). I am still infatuated with our white washed floors as well as my new/vintage mirror in the spare room and OF COURSE all the nursery funsies. Decorating is the best!

    • BabyMacBlogBeth says

      White floors? Sigh!!!! Nesting is SO productive. I washed our FRONT DOOR. Because that was so, you know, essential!

      • Funny you should say that….I very nearly bought a voucher to have the outside of our house cleaned by some super sonic high pressure hose thingy. Hormones = cray cray

  6. Perfection. Have you seen Emma Gale’s Frida works?? I think you’d love them. I’m saving my pennies.

  7. Steph @MamaMarmalade says

    I’ve been married for 13 years and as you know we’ve just moved back from London. We’ve always said we wouldn’t kit our house out until our 4 kids were a bit older (ok so the youngest is 2.5, I’m getting impatient) and we were back living in our own house in Sydney. So I’ve just furnished the whole house with 13 years of pent up furniture spending frustration unleashing itself all over Sydney furniture stores. I love everything but like you my rugs, cushions and lamps are what makes me happiest. Not too thrilled with the empty bank account though.

  8. Rebecca Simunic says

    love it!!!

  9. Oh Frida, how I adore her. Love the glossy red lamp base as well!!

  10. MotherDownUnder says

    I love our linen sheets! So soothing after a long day…I swear I sleep better wrapped in linen!
    Although I do sing a little Tiny Dancer every time I lie down, “Lay me down in sheets of linen, you had a busy day today.”

  11. Love, love, love the lamp (and I’m also lusting over those green/blue chairs)… I’m looking for some statement pieces and the colours in those pieces rock!

  12. Reannon Hope says

    I’m loving my kantha throws. Those bright colours just make me happy 🙂

  13. Kylie Gardner says

    My house is terribly under decorated. I just have no idea where to start. Also a husband who like minimalist!

  14. lakesidebetty says

    Love your Frida Kahlo lampshade. I have two Frida cushions. have you seen the movie?

  15. Lisa Mckenzie says

    I love when you find just the RIGHT thing you were looking for! I am loving my new leather ottoman I bought for the family room in a Mushroom colour x

  16. LOVE LOVE LOVE The lamp and the artwork! x
