Little updates

Just a quick post with some pics of little updates to my flat!

Firstly, a gorgeous 1960's foot stool reupholstered for me by Jacqui from Reissued. So gorgeous! Jacqui and I did a swap of some of my fabric in exchange for the sourcing and reupholstering of a stool, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!

The stool at home by the couch (amazing spring Jasmine blossoms in the background!)

The other change around here is in my much neglected bedroom! I finally got around to putting up the Birch decal that I made in collaboration with The Wall Sticker Company, and I love how it turned out. The white decal on cream walls is nice and subtle which I much prefer to the usual decal look.



I've also temporarily borrowed a Birch Drum Shade from Wilkins & Kent. I have bulb socket that's flush to the ceiling (typical in rental flats), but figured out how to make and add an extension cord to hang a drum shade. Renter friendly! Tute to come soon!

I put together this little string of circles too... just to break things up a bit...

Well that was all a little bit indulent but I love decorating my flat and love my new camera (still so much to learn!) so I had to share.

Hi, I've been reading your blog for a little while and your work is lovely. I had to comment on the photos of your flat - its so wonderful to be able to be surrounded by things you've created yourself and it looks lovely :)

The only thing better than a Lara Cameron design, is one styled by Lara Cameron! Just beautiful. Jen

You can buy hanging light 'extension' cords from kmart that plug into the ceiling socket and cover up that connection with a 'cup' so it looks neat. they're cheap! i used two of them in my old flat to hang drum shades from the ceiling too.

Hi Lara,

your home is just growing into such a lovely and comfy place - I remember when you just moved in!

Would LOVE to see the tutorial on creating a drum lampshade from fabric. :-)

Wow! I've always wondered if anyone actually lives in a flat that looks right out of a magazine! It looks amazing, I love that you're surrounded by your own work :)
