"Your Home & Garden, Resene and World Child Cancer are absolutely delighted and thrilled with how well the festive entertaining Home Tour went. It raised $35,000 for the Pacific chapter of World Child Cancer. The food/styling element is what set this home tour apart from others and this is what everyone loved so much about the day. Sincere thanks to Citta for all the hard work and effort you put into the day."
Leanne Moore, Editor, Your Home & Garden
Thanks also to the Great Catering Co. for the Cuba inspired snacks..mmmm Here are some pics of the home, hope they inspire some ideas for Christmas entertaining!
I don’t know if Christmas presents for our four legged friends is going overboard, but if you're of the opinion that its not, then how about kitting them out in one of these super cute bow tie collars? They'll be the talk of the town!
If you have a couple of minutes to kill watch this amazing video about the construction of living bridges in Meghalaya - north-eastern India. The landscape is divided by a multitude of rivers and streams, and the people for generations have been constructing bridges made from the roots of Fig trees. Beautiful and rightly described as the 'purest form of sustainable architecture'.
For the first time since the earthquake in February central city shops in Christchurch were opened on Saturday the 31st of October and what an opening, fantastic weather and loads of shoppers! We are very proud of our new look Citta Design store within store in Ballantynes and to be part of the Christchurch Re:start.
There is nothing better than an upclose and personal look into another artists studio space. The space pictured above belongs to San Fransico based artist Lisa Congdon, and was featured on the blog SFgirlbybay - a favorite international blog of mine.
Every corner, wall & surface shows off an interesting display or work/s in progress and vibrant colours pop out from everywhere. I am in love with this studio!
Check out these clever and beautiful clock/watch designs. Top left image and the close up below is a clock that knits the time and after 365 days you have a two meter long scarf! My favourite would have to be the industrial looking clock where a chain rotates around a small central cog - a lovely blend of form and function.
