David Bromley’s Christmas Wishlist – itemised below.

When I first asked David Bromley for his ideal Christmas wishlist, he responded with a truly beautiful list of all non-material things – love and friends and happiness and all those incredible things which we often forget to stop and truly appreciate.  It was such a beautiful read and perfectly articulated how many of us feel about Christmas I think… but of course being a sickenly materialistic design blogger I had to INSIST on asking him to add some actual physical things you can BUY!  Sorry!  How predictable :)

David responded graciously with some stunning material additions… but the basis of his list is still very much ephemeral – good company, sanity and more TIME to do everything!  I can totally sympathise with that one!  I hope Santa is listening.

David Bromley’s Christmas wishlist – from the top down :

1. A giant steel Hotel sign from Capocchi.
2. A pair of Pantanetti shoes from John Rizzo.
3. Patchwork over dyed rug from Loom.
4. A big boat in glass box from Tarlo & Graham (ps. This is not the actual boat! When I went in to photograph, I think David had already bought it!  This one is smaller but super cute too!)
5. Any paintings by Colin Pennock at Scott Livesy Gallery.
6. my sanity.
7. good surf / swell at Byron.
8. my friends around me.
9. everyone to forgive me for being a pain all year.
10. more time.

Thankyou so much to very busy David B for sharing his list, and once again to PR dynamo Esther at The Project Agency for facilitating!
