Panarea Pink

I love the combination of colours in this picture I took in Panarea. The deep blue sky, against the salmon pink and stark white wall; the green palms like sharp cut outs on the bright background. It is a beautiful combination, perfect in its simplicity.

Alice Kulbat Necklace

I was in Australia last month to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Design and Decor event. While there, the wonderful Tigger Hall http://tiggerhall.com.au/) hosted an event in her showroom for me where I met the jewellery designer Alice Kulbat. I was enchanted with this necklace and had to take it home with me. To find more of her work go to http://www.navah.com.au/

Money Coil

This fabulous money coil I saw at the MossGreen Gallery in Melbourne is a currency known as tevau. Feather money is used in Santa Cruz as a form of currency for settling important obligations and its supply is limited by the availability of the feathers used and the man-hours involved in its manufacture.
