Shannon Fricke Workshop

I'm very excited as I've just booked to do a day's interior design workshop with well-known interior designer Shannon Fricke. A friend and I are going to have a long weekend away - it's not until August - up at Bangalow which is near Byron Bay. Check out her gorgeous website here and her blog.

We're going to learn all about making our own mood boards - rather like this one above which I'm quite loving - and channelling our inner interior designer. Or something like that. I feel in need of a bit of design help for our new house and what a good excuse for a weekend away. Oh, to get a break from the kids, my work, the washing and dog poo! You know, pretty much daily life.

I want to get inspired by rooms like this living room that are filled with eclectic pieces,

kitchens that look too good to use,

learn how to mix varying shades of white to create a serene oasis,

and how to theme colours and make beautiful arrangements. Well, we probably won't get to do all of that in one day but hopefully I will come away with more knowledge than I had before. You - and I - will have to wait until August to find out how all about it.

In the meantime, anyone know where you can get a retro pink phone like the one above ...?


  1. Oh you lucky thing- any room for me in your luggage? I can't wait to see what you learn:)

  2. I think you're going to have a wonderful time. What a great thing to do.
    Thank you for stopping by.

  3. Thanks guys - looking forward to it already!

  4. Soooo envious, this sounds like such fun! As for retro pink phones, have you seen this one from Heals? (I've shortened the URL for you)

  5. I am glad you used my mood board design as inspiration.


Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you ..
