Three chairs: Before and after


Available now: three formerly Government greige chairs, with a new fun fresh look. Absolutely one-offs, they are perfect to add a spot of colour to your favourite room! Also ready are these gorgeous floor lamps, with bases in glossy red or lolly pink - a rare find, they've been dressed to impress with unique fabric shades... LOVE IT!

Above left, one of the 3 identical chairs BEFORE, in 'Government greige'.
If you are interested in adding these to your home, please contact me ASAP, I have a feeling these won't be hanging around too long! Descriptions and pricing on Tango and James on Facebook.

Chairs in progress

I have many many chairs in progress right now. Cushion less dilapidated chairs, and more government greige chairs - ready to make into loveable creatures!

Here's a sneak peek at a couple of chairs in progress...

Above, for a client, this old chair has fabulous bones, but had been loved to death. Now with brand new foam and gorgeous new fabric this chair is going to last another 40 years! The loose cushion is my Raindrop fabric design... ceeeute!

 Above: This one's for me, I'm not letting this designer chair out of my clutches. Now dressed in my Fanpod fabric in Black and Champagne this one will be living in my lounge room.
Stay tuned for more chairs and lamps also coming out of my ears!

Hats and Gloves and a little T&J

The always elegant stylings at the annual Hats and Gloves fundraiser, this year in the theme of black white and yellow, saw my Tango & James Hollywood Trellis fabric making a big splash of colour in the marquee as table runners on all 37 well dressed tables...

Hosted on the grounds of Government House, guests were treated to perfection, all to raise funds for the Malkara School.

Darling, don't they look fabulous? Full credits to my gorgeous friend and designer Barb Fisher who worked tirelessly with the decorating committee, sewing up these babies herself and putting together this amazing space, congratulations!

Oh Joie

A beautiful day to style a Spring fashion shoot for online magazine Joie. Led by incredibly talented photographer Amanda Thorson, joined by Keeley Rees, our beautiful model and Annika De Hoog as photography assistant/chief scene wrangler.

I got the fun job of styling outfits of my T&J label clothes and jewellery, with hats and fascinators by Barb Mickelson. The results... well, you'll have to wait for the finished collection of shots, but for now, a look behind the scenes...

A fun day, great company, and I can't wait to see the beautiful results!
