You will love this. Got nostalgic today for Paris & NYC when viewing this article of all the amazing libraries and bookstores in the world. Check out these incredible places! From someones personal library in a bath ? to a gorgeous living room, the libraries in the Netherlands and OHIO. All just very beautiful. They will make you want to find your own cosy place to sit and read a peguin classic.

It’s been a busy few weeks for me, first a new job last week and then this week moving house! We moved to Sunbeam Way in east Perth’s Claisebrook Cove which is one of my favorite spots in Perth! And I am just in love with the address! We lived in the same apartment complex 3 years ago so it feels like coming home. The best thing is that my job is literally 100 m away on the same street! Sweet! I am the worst at being on time so hopefully this will help. I now work as a news director for ABC again. (Same thing as I did in Sydney). I was lucky that a directors position opened up here in Perth, because they started to send a national news bulletin at 5.30pm. Otherwise it happens like-never! It has been fun to see how they work here and lots to learn. Now I am trained up to do the 7pm by myself which feels great! So now it’s unpacking the house to make it homey and cosy which is next on the list!
During these last few weeks I have pretty much left Ash to take care of everything about the book – and she is a rock at it! Thank you dear.. Not long until we are there now!
I had an appointment in Subiaco this morning followed by a long cosy Friday Brunch at The walk Cafe. Caught up on some work over a yum apple mint salad, sourdough bread and a healthy juice. Then I strolled around cosy Subiaco, found a unique book store and chatted to the lovely owner who told me her son is working in Sweden as a chef! We had a long chat and it’s so interesting to hear about Sweden from a foreigners point of view. Scootered back home with a new pair of shoes in the basket too! What a great start on a Friday! /Axel
The weekend that just passed was one of our close friends birthday, and for a gift we we wanted to get her a coffee table, although something which was a little different than Ikea (although we do still very much love the Swedish designs !). When we looked on gumtree we found this cute coffee table, which was painted a crisp white, and made from recycled pallets. At first I thought someone was selling just the one on it’s own. However, when we enquired, I spoke to Josie the lovely creator herself. Here, I learnt that Josie actually infact has just started to make this beautiful business, called ‘Made by Pallet’. Stemmed from love, and the passion to be creative and re-use materials Josie setup some space in an old warehouse in Mosman, and is now putting together these stylish tables to share with us all. Putting something like this together looks easy, and would be lots of fun, but unfortunately takes alot of time. So, if you don’t have time, definitely a worthwhile purchase. Can’t wait to have one in our future office !
