Absolutely Beautiful Things: Black and Spiro

I've mentioned that I'm turning our downstairs bedroom into an office/family room since no one ever sleeps there except the dog. Since this room is completely from scratch (doesn't even have flooring right now) my options are wide open for what to do, which totally excites and scares me at the same time.

So after months of looking at samples and colors, I've finally picked out the floors and they have been delivered. I'm hoping to install them when we get back from the beach, but that still leaves the walls, furniture, rug....and on and on.

I previously posted my idea of the circus theme/inspiration, and I still think I may do some of this, but I really want lots of color and I want it to be eclectic, but comfortable.

Last night I was Tweeting about my challenges with this room and mentioned how much I love the new Black and Spiro shop that was unveiled recently and received several responses from others that had never seen this blog. So, allow me to introduce you to this fabulous, wonderful blog: Absolutely Beautiful Things. Anna Spiro is a wonderfully talented interior designer in Australia and I love everything about her new shop and her style.

Here are some of my favorite pictures, all sourced from her blog. Check her blog and website out yourself! It's pure happiness!
