HUTTON-MDIVANI JADEITE NECKLACE- $27.44 MILLION

The Hutton-Mdivani Jadeite Necklace was sold for $27.44 million by Sotheby's. 
The Magnificent Jewels Auction was held in Hong Kong last week.
The price achieved was double the estimate, after bidders competed for nearly 20 minutes.
Sotheby's described the Cartier Jadeite bead, ruby and diamond necklace
 "the greatest jadeite bead necklace of historical importance".

CREATIVE SPARK: TOM SCHEERER

I absolutely adore Tom Scheerer's work.
He has an incredible talent of creating traditional and modern spaces that are unpretentious.
So many examples in his work that bigger isn't always better...love that!


 
 Wonderful Entry- love the eclectic collection here.

Adore his colour combinations. 




Colours and Indian block print, gorgeous!


 

 What a simple and effective idea..with the pops of red. 
Those frames... the stripes..beautiful!



All that blue and white gorgeousness! 
The patterns, textures...
ahhh his rooms just make me smile.


How fabulous are those bookshelves!

 I love that this kitchen doesn't have any overhead cupboards...
oh and that tile from Cuba..incredible!



With the huge variety of interior design books available, 
if you love the images above, this book is definitely a goodie for the bookshelf or coffee table.
So much inspiration!

They also do personalised candles.

On a personal note, this little blog has been well and truly neglected.
I have been busy enjoying quality time with my boys. 
They have just started a new chapter, boarding school. 
I have always felt so blessed to have twins, definitely twice as nice (not double trouble as some say) but it is hard losing two at once! 
I didn't realise how chatty my daughter really is!!!!
 Thank you for your continued support X
