Housepiration - Mermaid's Lair

Me and my lovely are currently in the midst of saving up for our own home, saving is not that much fun. So one of the things that is keeping me positive is being inspired by other people's lovely abodes. I totally have a 'housepiration' folder on my computer; geek! Any who discovered the amazing work of Adam Wallacavage sometime ago and I know there are other fans out there. His work is sheer magic, it speaks to my inner mermaid. I sent him a major gushing email the other day and he replied straight away saying thank you, how sweet?! I am also working on revamping a piece of furniture at the moment, will share the results soon.

  1. LOL! After the first couple of pics I thought "Someone's been on The Selby". Isn't it the best site ever? Although it makes me feel so inadequate house-decoarting-wise.

  3. Wow! I'm actually slightly terrified of anything with tentacles and suckers (well, anything under the sea) BUT those two chandeliers are so beautiful my terror is put aside.
