Shopshoot - Black and Spiro

I'm very excited because I have the next two days off work and I'm going to treat myself to a little mini escape to the Blue Mountains. I bought a little toy film camera online which arrived last week and I can't wait to play with it. Of course the camera (s) will be coming with me on my journey but not I fear my laptop. I don't know how I'll survive without it. I'm planning on doing some bushwalking; exploring the beautiful gardens and shops in Leura and eating - a few of my favourite things.

I first heard about Anna Spiro and her blog, Absolutely Beautiful Things via my Mum last year. When I clicked on her blog I recognised her store Black and Spiro straight away as I'd visited it a few times before on my many trips to Brisbane. The store is housed in a beautiful old building in the suburb of New Farm.

For those of you who've not visited Brisbane, it's a major city like no other in Australia. It has a sub tropical climate; unique houses built on stilts that I love and the flowers in Brisbane seem to be larger than life and more colourful than in other parts of Australia. Anna has managed to capture the colour of Brisbane in all her work.

The store has lots of pretty goodies all characterised by Anna's use of colour- ginger jars, furniture, paintings, flowers' cushions, lamps, books on design and interiors and lots of pretty knick knacks. 

It's also the location for Anna's design business so fabric and wallpaper swatches abound.

I hope you all enjoyed my little tour of Black and Spiro.

Hopefully I'll be back in 1 piece Friday night from my little trip away,

    What is that amazing wallpaper with the birds and butterflies?! Love it!

  2. It's fantastic isn't it? Unfortunately I don't know anything about it. I'm sure if you ask Anna directly at black and spiro she'll let you know.


  3. I saw your work on Decor 8, very nice, such a lovely space.

  4. Thanks for the kind words everyone. It's easy to take nice photos of pretty things,
