Black & Spiro Today

I quickly snapped this photo as I was leaving the shop tonight of our front desk.  Today we replaced the black and white ikat desk skirt, which we've had on the desk since our re-opening last year, with a new gathered navy and white ticking skirt.  This photo gives a very small indication of our new look for the entire shop which will hopefully be in place within the next 3 weeks.  There is going to be lots of red {I am very into red}, navy, pale blue, green, yellow and a softer/warmer pink than the one I am normally known for. 

I wish that all of our lovely new things would arrive sooner as the shop is a little bit empty due to our recent annual sale.  However, as I keep telling myself - beautiful things take time to come to fruition and as my mother always says - good things come to those who wait!!

It's true, good things come to those who wait. I used to be the most impatient person in this world. Had to learn to change that, especially having three children! :-)

Beautiful, beautiful picture!


Have a wonderful day!

I love the new look. The ticking fabric is fresh and fun, and it sounds like you have some lovely things in store. As always, it make me want to jump on a plane for a shopping trip to Brisbane!

Can't wait to see your new look! I enjoy your blog because you have a great way with color - wish I could be so brave. I'm sure your new look will be beautiful.

Love the whole picture. Anna I read your about me on the side of your blog. You have inspired me to live with colour and the things I love. There are so many beautiful styles out there but after following your blog I believe your own style is the best one for you.
Kind Regards
Karen

Looks great! Where did you get the desk skirt, or did you make it yourself? I'm looking for something similar. Thanks!
