Rowantree Designs Likes "Boo and the Boy'

Koulun lattia Narisse

If you love this image, then head over to The Boo and The Boy .  I have loved visiting Julia's blog for the longest.  I love reading about her family, keeping up to date with the caravan renovation and most of all admiring all her beautiful images.  I love it that much I emailed Julia and asked if I could sponsor a little space on her wonderful blog.  Pop over here to see my collection on The Boo and The Boy

Rowantree Shops. Picks For The Christmas Stocking 'Cloud Nine Jewellery'

Spring Collection

These vintage look pieces are made by a NZ artist and designer Lee Sinclair, the beautiful necklaces, earrings, rings and prints capture her flair for funky, contemporary style and are available at Cloud Nine Creative online store.  I just love the freshness of the New Spring Collection, being a huge love of vintage relics the nostalgic pretty florals are a winner for me.  I just can't decide between the pink roses or the peach?

Children's Decor 'Bib's n' Bob's'

I love this idea for displaying all the bibs, bobs and treasures that are special to the child.  You know the ones I mean, the gidgets, gadgets, odds and sods that are category less.

Rowantree Design Captures 'The Christmas Garden Sale - Part One'

This week I had the pleasure of showcasing my Rowantree Collection at the beautiful inner city home and garden of the very talented Anna-Louise of Fiore Garden Design.  This beautiful event set in the tranquil garden setting, displays Anna-Louise's flair and talent of architectural landscaping from the grand to the miniature and everything in between scale.  The garden is a delightful montage of eclectic compositions striking a symphony between botanical and still life.  
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Rowantree Decorates "Bare Walls in the Kids Room'

My friend's baby girl sadly isn't a baby girl anymore, she is quite the busy toddler and mum wants to re decorate her room.  The baby girly wall stickers have already come down, the cot and change table dismantled, the bed is arriving in a few days, and the family will be arriving for Christmas.  I get the call.  Help!  What can I do with the bare walls?  
I love the Ikea Diginete hanging system it's really affordable and can be adapted to many uses.  I have one in my studio that I hang my sketches, pieces of trims, inspiration pictures and photographs on. 

I love the idea of having them in a child's bedroom, you can change the display frequently. My ideas....
Hanging pictures of the family and family pets
Drawings and postcards
Favourite pieces of your child's clothing i.e. ballets tutus, footy team shirts etc.
Small led lights wrapped around the line look really cute

But this really caught my attention and with lots of fabric scraps laying around my studio we can get right to it and have the room tickerty boo ready for Christmas.  
You can find the tutorial at  make it and love it.

Rowantree Designs 'Dan mon jardin' with 'All About Heidi'

Let me introduce you to a flirty little blouse I designed for the long summer days ahead.  
Inspiration,  a frill shoulder blouse with lots of skipping, prancing, and running around the garden in mind, picnics and afternoons in the park.

Now, allow me to introduce you to the perfect little shoe to compliment this outfit.  All About Heidi shoes, the nostalgic design is perfect match for my delicious collection of infants playwear.   I totally love that the shoes are handmade right here in Sydney, just like my collection of clothing.  I love how the soft leather shoe cradles and protects the the baby tender souls of the feet.


'In my garden' will be available from the Rowantree Design online boutique in December.

Rowantree Designs 'Fabric Loves'

It bugs me how much I love this contemporary fabric, designed and printed by Australian designer Saffron Craig.  Inspired by the beauty of nature her whimsical designs all printed on one hundred percent cotton are a luxury go to, next time you are feeling crafty.

Rowantree Designs Captures 'Colour , Beauty and Innoncence'

I took these images in 'Sapa' Vietnam last year, amongst the many hundreds of images I captured, these three stay on my desktop.  The beauty in my eyes are the gorgeous children, the vibrant colour of the textiles that surround them and the innocence in allowing me to take the photograph.  
Thank you for sharing these with me!

A tear gently rolls down my cheeks.

The Beach 'Afternoon at Pearl Beach'

After posting my blog yesterday about wanting to escape to the beach for the afternoon, I did just that.  I would have loved to have taken some of those gorgeous Hawaiin Bark cloth cushions to lay around on. Oh how I love being spontaneous.  I called the sailor and persuaded him to come home from work and join us.  I packed a hamper of scrumptious afternoon tea treats and off we drove to Pearl Beach.  What I love about pearl beach is it's locality, only a 90 minute drive from the heart of Sydney, it's bushland charm and most of all the lay back and beachy atmosphere.

Rowantree Shops 'Hawaiin Barkcloth Homewares'

On a gorgeous day like today, I feel like packing up the car and heading off to the beach house, but instead I'll just browse this cool collection of 1960's retro Hawaiin barkcloth products from the Homeworks Design Store.  

If you happen to read this blog sailor man, I think this would look great on me to wear around the house when it's bursting with family guests this Christmas.
