Still lovin' the white and blue combo in Shannon's living room

Who would have thought - velvet and a rattan-style chair next to a Zaishu stool!

Love the blue vase, bird and wallpaper contrast with the green plant.

From Shannon's previous home - she was a fan

of blue and white even back then

A creative and yet organised office. Shelves and drawers make me drool

Also found this pic on her site, which is from Shannon's brilliant Sense of Style book.

I heart hydrangeas, especially in blue. I think they're my new favourite flower.

Even the blue sky fits in perfectly!

Shannon Fricke has been teasing us in recent months with glimpses of her home decoration project. For those of you who read her blog regularly, which I suggest you do if you love colour and a sophisticated-cum-casual Australian style, you'll know what I'm talking about. I have to confess that I catch myself thinking about her colour palette at random moments. The peacock green velvet sofa. The dusty turquoise Florence Broadhurst wallpaper. The teal blue scatter cushions. I'm in love, love, love. (I wrote about the initial head-over-heels teal blue moment here.) And another person who is making me think blue is interior stylist Sibella Court, who in a recent (as yet unpublished) real living interview professed her love for indigo. Not surprisingly, Shannon has spoken about this colour too - I'll post my favourite pics soon.
