Who is Florence Broadhurst I hear you asking and what makes her so cool?

Florence Broadhurst was born in 1899 and died in 1977 and was an eccentric and talented Australian woman. After an amazing life overseas filled with a variety of careers, Florence started a wallpaper business in the 1950s and had created over 800 designs by the 70's. 

Her work has inspired generations of designers, with a more recent collaboration with Kate Spade. To find out more, view the Florence Broadhurst website here. or view the Circa Home Florence Broadhurst candle collection here

2013 Emmy's Best Dressed

Did anyone see the Emmy's? Unfortunately I didn't, but I did see the fashions! Am loving these key colours that dominated the red carpet, lots of blue, soft pink, deep purple/reds and who can forget classic black and white. As you can see jewellery was kept very minimal with drop earrings being the main feature as these gals let their frocks do the talking. I can't go past the dress worn by Linda Cardellinie, I love the layering of the fabric and how it still shows off her gorgeous shape. The colour pops against her lovely pale complexion and hair looks divine. The back is quite low which balances the proportions of the front so nicely. Which ones your favourite?
