We have been working very hard on our new look for the magazine and we think you will love it!!!! How stunning is this room wait till you see the rest of this incredible manor house we just want to move in. If you are a IvP ViP you of course will have your copy this Sunday and the rest will have to wait till Monday! Hope this has whet your appetite...
The decisions! We need a new sofa for our sunroom and I just can't decide! These are a few of the favourites from our files. Loving lillac and the cut out shape of Tori Mellots (top image) with the black and white contrast so bold. But being an old fashioned girl there is something about the Lena in the second image that makes me think sunroom... covered in pink and green with a sweet little skirt added or turned legs maybe? But I have always loved the last two images Joe Nye's ensemble is heart stoppingly good and Windsor Smith's Chloe is a style I can't go past it is such a shame we only need one! for now. ( I think Windsor is in the lead but will keep you posted) Happy Monday!
Sorry for the absence but we are back with some exciting news!!! Fellow Brisbane designers Magnolia Interiors are having a fabulous sale this weekend!!!!

Have you lovely plans for the weekend? We plan to curl up for some R&R if this rain stays around if not it will be out in the sunshine for us!!! We hope you have had a darling week and we will see you on Monday!
Well Penny and I have been exploring our new town and revisiting my old Antique haunts from when I was, well a lot younger than I am now... My mum and I used to visit Toowoomba where we have just moved too on occasion when I was a girl. Visits were always filled with many antique stores picking through lighting, old records, fabrics and furniture I think this is definately where I formed my love of decorating and now I am taking my little girl around with me. Funny how it comes full circle.
Well Toowoomba certainly offers some perfect antique spots and I will share our finds with you over the next couple of weeks. However it is in one of Toowoomba's most famous antique spots, The Toowoomba Antiques Gallery that I came across the work of Bjorn Wiinblad. (Am I just a little slow or did you all know about him?) I am in love with his quirky vibrant works which include prints, ceramics, stamps and costumes. A true creative the Danish artist truly inspired me. The Gallery have a pair of the most stunningly colourful prints upstairs in to die for gold frames that I have my eye on but I just had to share these above...
I know we have said it before but we are golden girls through and through. Whilst nickel is always nice in the right place gold is always close to our hearts. Just a couple of pics that make our heart skip! (We know amazing lamps but we would love to see them with drum shades! thanks Amber for the link)
We have saved these gorgeous pics in our files a little while ago actually we could have posted at least 15 more! We love the old fashioned idea of dressing up, putting on a hat, slipping on your evening gloves and painting your face. Don't these pics just ooze with glamour, style and a little bit of effort... We have been asked to style a very special event coming up a little later in the year and the conversation has already turned to what to wear??? It will be a fabulously stylish night and we can't wait to share. We are working on some inspiration boards for the event now and will be sure to keep you in the loop.
Where in the world is the Ivy and Piper magazine you ask??? Well mark your calendars readers because we have a new launch cycle! We will be releasing from the first of March we know it means waiting a few extra weeks but we promise it will be worth it. To keep you going the image above is from our bonus issue only for IvP ViP's!!!! This amazing property (Melanie's Favourite) will have you dreaming of a far flung place so if you haven't yet go here and sign up to become an ViP and you will receive your copy of our bonus article and the entire magazine a day earlier than the public!!
