photos: room 11

each time i zip up the brooker highway i admire the lovely colourful footbridge that has popped up along the foreshore at elwick bay.

i've been meaning to get out of the car and have a closer look so recently i made the stop and had a peek about.

it's called gasp and it is pretty amazing. it's such a simple concept but so effective. i think room 11 have done a really beautiful job.

cloudy bay

last weekend, bb and a gorgeous friend of ours spent a couple of nights on bruny island. we stayed in a renovated old church and spent our days exploring the island - driving from tip to tip. my favourite spot has to be cloudy bay. i didn't make it to the far south of the island when i visited in summer but i am so glad we got there this time.

2012 design island showcase

i'm in launceston at the moment. what a gloomy gloomy day it was in the north of the apple isle today. still, the blustery cold conditions made for the perfect excuse to spend some time indoors. 

i decided to pop in to the design centre on tamar street. what a delightful display of tasmanian talent...

as well as the "wood you wear?" exhibition the centre is also now showing the 2012 design island showcase. i think my favourite designers from this years group are mairi ward & nathan freeman (the hatchery)along with a number of other amazing tassie designers, they will take part in the design:made:trade exhibition in melbourne this july.

what an amazing display that will be!
