ANOHKI GiveAway!

It's no secret I obsess over Indian block print fabric. When I found Anokhi's company I flipped out and instantly sent them an email asking if I could do a giveaway with their products. A week later I received a package filled with so much beauty I had to pinch myself!!!! 

I am so happy to do a giveaway for this completely gorgeous tablecloth and scarf!

The table cloth measures 55" x 55" square.

The scarf is 30" x 30"

You could make a pretty pillow from this scarf....or just wear it on your neck!

OK, SO if you wanna win leave me a comment. Follow me here, Tweet Me @amberinteriors or post on my Facebook. You know the drill. 

Good Luck Lovers!!!!
giveaway ends on May 3rd.

Cape Town designer Gregory Mellor


A few weeks ago I discovered the beautiful interiors of Gregory Mellor. Gregory is a native South African but has traveled extensively. Having lived in Cape Town, Sydney and even in London influenced his work. His interiors reflect a combination of international styles and influences, seamlessly fused together to create an effortlessly chic and overall effect.

In Cape Town he worked on several homes across the Atlantic Seaboard and the exclusive Southern Suburbs.

In 2009 Gregory formed his own Design Studio in Sydney, Australia and early 2011 he returned to his hometown Cape Town, South Africa to expand his business, allowing him to access the best of both South African and Australian interior design resources.

  I do love these beach house interiors.

GM 1

“Greg Mellor’s personal style embodies everything that is synonymous with his inconspicuous approach to classic, dateless and ultimately comfortable interior design. Combinations such as white washed walls and aged timber flooring might provide a relaxed foil to a collection of European antiques mixed with mid 20th Century classics; or natural linens contrasting with a fine printed velvet are some examples he might employ to create the perfectly balanced and layered interior space.” (Text website of Gregory Mellor)

Gregory recently started his own blog : HERE! It looks very promising!

Sparkly Leafy Greens

I am Guest Sparkling over at THINGS THAT SPARKLE!!!! You must go peep because Alex has an AMAZING blog filled to the brim with fabulous sparkly things! 

In other News,
I am obsessed...heavily obsessed with palm or leafy patterned fabrics and wallpapers. There is something so radical about feeling like your in some regency styled jungle world that only movie stars or "the fabulous" have the privilege of experiencing. 
I have been dying to do a powder room or my vanity nook area in any one of these patterns since as long as I can remember and everyday I get closer and closer to pulling the trigger. 

None of these options are cheap so maybe I will have to settle with a pillow for now? 
Thoughts on which pattern? 

I clearly have jungle fever.
