Palm Beach beauty

Just loving this gorgeous home belonging to Rachel Griffiths in Palm Beach, just north of Sydney. But alas it sold in 10 days... love that kitchen and the rock wall! pics from LJ Hooker (agent)







The Palm Beach house had expansive ocean views.

Summer reflections

It's summer. A time of year that I just love. Sunshine is just so good and I find it a time to reflect on the year that was. As a designer it's also the time of year when all your hard work during the years comes to fruition. 

It's been a year I'll never forget. Not only did I have my first amazing solo exhibition at Boom Gallery in Geelong titled 'Surf Garden' but I also started to renovate my lovely 60s home and launch a new range of tableware. Probably this may be the reason I've not posted on this blog for a little while :)

Here's just a picture of one of my works from the exhibition. You might also notice in the picture some bright cushions which are made from one of my new obsession, neoprene - I have big plans for it. (now available online at www.maryla.com.au ).


One of my favourite table runners is my fishscale design. This pattern is not new, but I've tried to create something a little more organic in it's shape and form. I also have big plans for this style!



So enjoy! Today I feel like I'm getting on top of all the projects as they start to come together - house included! Pics of that next time... Mx
