Determinedly Convey









This home of Australian fashion designer Leona Edmiston just screams her aesthetic. Well, actually, it probably wouldn't scream; it would determinedly convey her aesthetic, in a very feminine, unfaltering, even tone of voice.

I actually admire the way this place is overtly feminine, without crossing into the frou-frou. Apologies to those who like it, but I can't be dealing with frou-frou.

But this home predominantly caught my eye for the wall light in the bedroom. I currently have (in the 60's Splendour, as I have come to dub my new home) that style of wall lights in the main bedroom. I was convinced that I was switching them as soon as possible for these, however seeing that little vintage style shade has made me question that decision. Don't you just hate that.

I love that wall light, and this whole place, for its delicacy in watery shades and its colorful effect without having a single dominant hue. It's an utterly balletic whole. I'm just off to have a worried look round my house for frou-frou to eradicate.

Please don't make me give up the frou-frou juju just yet! I love the beautiful backsplash and those turquoise canisters and the lovely windows. I'd be very happy in Leona's house. Sixties splendour hey? Watch out or you'll be on a reality tv show next!

Jules do not switch the light...do I have to come over and talk to you! ha ha

I like Leona's style, as you say not too over frilly, but still with her personality.

I love Leona! She always has such style. Have you seen the packaging for her line of chocolates?

I was just thinking that it was soft, but not at all to girly. Lovely space.
