Black & Spiro Today



Here are some photos of Black & Spiro today - lots of beautiful new pieces in the shop!! Oh and if you're wondering the flowers (bottom image) are fresh Australian native flowers (Banksia, Protea etc.) which I just arranged for our front table display late last week.

Anna these are beautiful. The chairs are divine - Love that fabric in the background of the first image. Is it fabric or wallpaper?

Thanks for sharing

Anna Spiro said...

Hi Christine - thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment! I suppose I always run with my heart! I love mixing as everyone knows and I think that's a look a lot people feel comfortable with as it isn't perfect and it isn't all matching!! Thanks again!!

Is it wrong to fly across the world just to visit one store?????

Sarah said...

Oooh, I just love the raspberry armchair!! Gorgeous! :)

Jenny said...

Hi Anna,

I've been admiring your blog for months, but have never said hello. You are an amazing designer! I have to check your site daily to get my daily dose of design inspiration. I wanted to know about the beautiful, colorful floral vases in the above photos. Did you find these on ebay or is there a place we mere mortals can buy them in the US?

Thanks!
Jenny from Las Vegas

Hi Anna, clever creative one.
Even though I've been visiting your blog since its inception, I've only just today signed up so I can leave comments. I rarely miss a day to see what yummy images you have added. these fabrics in your new display and the colours are delishhhhhh. I'm so very excited about what you are designing for our home. I adore how you combine fresh new items with aged and character pieces to create a very welcoming, eclectic and liveable environment with flair and personality, charm and a sense of love. We do share a love and passion for the institution of "home" and what that brings to our families and friends.
congratulations on a beautiful and truly inspirational blog.
Mela.

Hi Anna, just wanted to let you know too how much I loved these images. The colors are incredible and the fabrics gorgeous. Besides all of it, I like the pillow in the second image...any story behind that? Thanks for the shot of inspiration.

Dear Anna,
Your window display photos looked just as gorgeous as they did in person. I'm sorry I missed you yesterday, but I' hope you got my parcel. Everything in your shop is stunning and it was worth the special trip up from the Gold Coast where we were staying.
