I totally love Audrey Kawasaki s work, it is beautiful and feminine, erotic and strange and her use of the wood grain throughout the images gives then a soft natural feel that she continues with the soft colours.

I was in borders one day last year and came across a book, it jumped out at me from the table and although it was covered in plastic and only had a very brief discription I had to have it. It turned out to be the story of Florence Broadhurst. Florence designed beautiful bold wallpaper and had a totally facinating life story. Not long after I bought the book the Melbourne Design Festival had talks by the books author and by the director of a movie about Florences life “Unfolding Florence” which was about to come out… I was totally surrounded by Florence Broadhurst and I love it, I love the gold and silver foiled wallpapers, I love the bold asian inspired designs and the 60’s phycidelic swirls.
