Its Market Week here at Linen House, so all of the international partners have made the long journey to Melbourne to view the new bed linen collections (due to be released around February 2010). Adrienne is the Linen House partner from South Africa, who brought along some rather lovely magazines including House and Leisure - a stylish interiors magazine that features our Hiccups rug in the 'Small Wonders' kid's bedroom article. Great styling!

The Princess Who Had No Kingdom is a delightful fairy tale written by Ursula Jones and beautifully illustrated by Sarah Gibb using a combination of silhouettes and a colourful painterly style.
Here is a wise tale about a princess who had no kingdom and whose only possessions were a pony and cart, and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. What the princess lacked in wordly possessions, she made up for in kindness, cleverness and beauty - qualities that made all of the rich princes with kingdoms of their own to ask for her hand in marriage. But what is a kingdom without love?

Layers and layers of gorgeous prints, ruffles and hand-finished shirring - there is a lovely attention to detail to be found on all of the clothing in the Spring Summer 09/10 collection from Australian brand Paperwings.

I have just returned from my always relaxing Botanical drawing class, so these serene photographs by English photographer Claire Richardson are rather fitting mood-wise. I came across her lovely work in the UK magazine Country Living.

Gorgeous kids spaces from the Dutch Kids Factory website. I love the sophisticated colour palettes used in each setting, and I especially love the decorative tiled floor in the second image - what a great idea!
