Where the Heart Is

Mid pleasures and palaces
though we may roam,

Be it ever so humble,

there's no place like home.

- John Howard Payne (1791 - 1852)

Hello lovely readers! I've finally moved into my shiny new apartment but I'm sadly without internet until the end of the week at least - ahh! I'm surviving on a strict diet of Twitter thanks to my little phone, but emails and blogging are falling by the wayside like never before.

In the meantime, here are some delicious photos of Olivier Dupon's digs here in Sydney, as featured on Design*Sponge a little while ago (locals may know Olivier as the creator of recently closed lola et moi - sad face!) The reason I love this home so very much (aside from the obvious loveliness) is plain and simple - Olivier is a renter, yet his home reflects his style through and through. If that's not inspiration for us renter types, I don't know what is!

Congrats on the new place and I'm sorry about the internet wait. When I moved they made us wait a full week and a half to hook us up. It was torture. I didn't even want to look at Google Reader when I was finally able to log on again.

Brandi - I think it took roughly the same amount of time for our internet to get connected. I literally did a jig this evening when I got home from work and the little green modem light was flashing away! Google Reader can wait til tomorrow though, I'm too afraid to tackle it now!

Megara - There are SO many odds and ends it's crazy! I seriously wonder if there was another couple secretly living in my apartment...so much stuff! But do tell, what's your dream home?

Jenny - Thank you, happy to be a surprise provider :D

Sum - Me too! Someone people just have a knack for it, but for the rest of us, practice makes perfect!

Aima - Glad you like them, I agree wholeheartedly! Lovely homes like these make me both inspired and envious! :D
