Blue and white be damned. Green is my colour: bags, clothes, jewels, interiors. A shot of green adds a crisp feeling to a room. This bathroom looks fresh with green fern wallpaper and an interesting mirror. US magazine, House Beautiful, have featured green rooms this month.
Regular readers will recognise the beach house loungeroom with it's green couch.
Lacquered green cabinets (by Miles Redd) look zesty in this New York apartment.
A green kitchen for those who are dare to look beyond a white kitchen.
This powder room has been a favourite of mine for a while now.

And remember these dining chairs? They've been reupholstered in black and taupe herringbone fabric. You can buy them here.
The orange and taupe herringbone is retro cool.
You can buy this loungesuite here.

Princess Mary with Ziggy. Aren't those parquetry floors gorgeous? I love the interiors of the palace and was surprised how modern her office was (first picture above).
The Princess said,"At 40 years old you simply know what life is about. I am happy to continue with my journey through time."

I picture my shirts ironed, on wooden hangers and organised by colour from light to dark. There's another area for my jackets, another for my trousers, two spaces for dresses, one for short dresses and a larger area for long dresses.
I love the idea of handles to hang up the clothes I'm planning to wear that day like this photo (above).
I'd also need compartments for folded items like t-shirts and jumpers neatly stacked like this photo. And if I'm really going to go for the full banana, I'd need perspex drawer inserts to organise my socks and jocks into neat little boxes.
And just like Aerin, I like wallpaper and my dog in the WIR too.
And it goes without saying that shoe racks are required. What would you have in your ultimate WIR? Did I miss anything?

Although I would like this elephant console table from Ruthie Sommer's pool house.
And a dog portrait is a must have for me. Just like this one at the Crosby Hotel in New York. Admittedly, the Westie painting which I have is only the size of an A4 page.
About Spots and Stripes
When I began my third renovation, I swapped the corporate ladder for the rusty paint ladder and began my website and blog, Spots and Stripes, which chronicles the restoration of our 'Queenslander' in Brisbane. I'm also an interior editor helping clients to create a home which is not modern, nor traditional, rather it's interesting. For a home that is unlike any other, I can assist with the selection of lights, tiles, mirrors, wallpaper, paint, furniture and fabric.
