so the secret is out…
Posted in amsterdam, pia's photos, stylists own May 19th, 2008 by piablog


It’s been killing me, but I was waiting for the tulips to bloom and the sun to shine before I showed you my home, and finally that moment has arrived.


I will post heaps more photos in the next post but for now, this is the little sneak peek on Grace’s site, and this is what I get up to , all exposed in Erin’s Dailies. …hmm, I am feeling rather naked at this moment.

(PS are you wondering why I didn’t make the bed for Design*Sponge? I’m wondering that too, what was I thinking?!)

    Wow–your boat home is so lovely! I can’t wait to see more pictures and imagine myself living somewhere equally as fun.

    hi Pia! Apart from your home being gorgeous, I really enjoyed reading your “dailies” at design for mankind. I liked it specially because you wrote it in a personal tone – and because I can totally relate to your working from home.

    Thanks for the wonderful images as well!

    And Iยดm yet to understand the vegemite-thing… ๐Ÿ˜‰ (when I went to Australia I had it on top of my “things to do” list and I must say it was the only disappointment! ๐Ÿ˜€

    (everything else about the journey there was even better than wonderful)

    No! No! No! The unmade bed was my mostest favouritest thing about the sneak peek ~ and that’s saying something, because there was a lot to like. Love the blog, loved your day at design for mankind. Keep up the good work, can’t wait to see the book ~ and you have inspired me muchly down under in NZ!

    your “boat” is amazing….what a fairytale to be in the water and home and the same time…so beautiful.
    my bathroom in nyc, i think is smaller and definitely less beautiful.
    i love the unmade bed… it is so much more real…
    so lovely

    I can relate being a stylist to the constant changing and rearranging!
    What a beautiful home!
