High Line walk - a disused railway line that has been turned into a park style area above the busy New York streets. The High Line runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues and was a great place to chill and relax inbetween too much shopping and eating!

I have been trying to find comfortable and stylish outdoor chairs that will work well with our house - its a 1954 Mid Century house and we have been planting a new water tolerant garden. These stunning Harry Bertoia diamond lounge chairs from Knoll would be just perfect - they are powder coated white for outdoor use. I love that our Melbourne rain would fall straight through them - so they would stay clean and beautiful.

My Husband and his friends went to Black Range, west of the Grampians in Victoria on the weekend and I thought I would stay home - well it was a boy thing! But when I saw the photos I kicked myself - this looks amazing and maybe I could have walked for 6 hours over rocks for this?? The colours are just stunning - almost unbelievable its so beautiful! This is where they slept out in the middle of nowhere - perfect solitude - now that's what I call a good weekend!

I wanted to be a textile designer or a florist - I wasn't the worlds quickest florist - but I think I still have time! This was a beautiful florist in the Marais in Paris I found inspiring - the French are so bold and exciting with their use of colour! No Boring Beige in the Marais..!

Bluebird in London - what a terrific concept - set up in the former Bluebird garage - stocking homewares, fashion, books and everything! We would love an AURA store one day - but for now I will just dream and be inspired by other fabulous stores - photos from Weebirdy

Hot humid and amazing - I have always wanted to visit the Amazon it sounded so exotic and remote. When I finally did the only let down was that it wasn't for long enough - one day I will go back to this wonderful spot - these shots where taken in the Tambopata National Reserve in Southeastern Peru - the colours are just so rich and saturated - almost like a stunning metallic sepia print.
If your ever after a place to stay I stayed at the most romantic and inspiring jungle lodge in the Amazon called Inkaterra Amazonia.
