Happy Happy Sunday! It’s an amazing day - So sunny and so bright! I have my good friend Kristina Johansson here and we’re off to stuff ourselves on yummy brunch and scheme about future projects. What are you up to on your Sunday Funday?

How about this for a wonderfully eclectic living room?!? I think it’s the walls that capture my attention. They are truly bizarre! but the colour is quite amazing.

You know when you see something and you go on a manic hunt to find it? Yep - so that happened. I’m slightly obsessed with these chairs at the moment. Maybe it’s because I’m loving pink right now but I just adore them!. I will track them down but in the mean time if any of you lovely people out there know who makes them then please do share!
***NEWS FLASH!*** after much hunting I’ve found them! They are the Elettra Lounge Chair by Arflex. Of course they cost more than my life…. (typical) but a girl can dream.

Well that’s certainly a different Fireplace?!? Old, eclectic yet modern and the same time. Not an easy accomplishment but it’s a job well done here me thinks.

Feeling that relaxed breezy vibe today. Being from the Caribbean I’m constantly looking for tropical homes that inspire me. I’ll take this please.

Still living off my French high I’ve been looking like a crazy person at French interiors in an attempt to keep that flame of inspiration burning (it can so easily dwindle in the hecticness of London life). This Paris apartment is virtually next to the Eiffel Tower….had I known I may have knocked on the door to say Bonjour!.

Bonsoir mes cheries! I’m back from Paris and Ooooooh was it good. A jam packed weekend of treasure hunting in the Saint Ouen flea markets, eating patisseries, drinking wine (lots of wine) and more treasure hunting. Couldn’t have asked for a better escape. Thank you Paris, I will be returning.

Have you ever read RUM? Well you should do! Unfortunately they don’t sell it outside of Denmark (Booo!) but if I could recommend subscribing to one magazine this year it would be RUM. OK, so you might not have a clue what the text says but trust me, the visuals more than make up for the language barrier. The above kitchen is just a snippet of what RUM has to offer. I’m in love (of course…..) with the gold drawer units and that flat muted green wall. It’s simple and a little bit rustic but glamorous and interesting all at once. It’s such a contradiction but oh my dayz does it work well!

I think it’s fair to say (and fairly obvious) that I haven’t been inspired much lately. It’s been a rough couple of weeks as I lost a little being who I loved very much (Don’t worry people, it’s a cat……..not a human). It’s funny how attached we become to our pets. They become an extension of our family and life can be unimaginable without them, so when they are suddenly taken from you there is this feeling of confusion and emptiness and actually, guilt - that perhaps you have failed them somehow. They are after all your responsibility. But no amount of beating yourself up will change the fact that they are gone and anyway, I know I’m a good mum. I absolutely love animals and I always say that life is richer with them in it. Even if that time is a short one. Alas, life must go on, so with my new responsibility free freedom I’m focusing a little more on what I want. I’m off to Paris this weekend to go to Maison Objet. My friend Kristina Johansson is joining me and I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of design, flea markets and good old French culture (Oui oui! Macaroons s’il vous plaÎt!). My only concern is that I’ll see too many things I want that I can’t bring back with me! But who am I kidding…… where there’s a will there’s a way……..

Sunday Funday! It’s a long weekend here and I’m feeling bright & inspired! We could all use a little colour in our lives every once in a while. I mean how could you not feel happy when walking through this door? Hallways are transient spaces but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them. In fact, if you’re only passing through then make the most of it! be bold, be bright and decorate it like a disco ball! (or not….. just have fun!)

I’m back in the UK after a quick trip home and whilst catching up on some reading I stumbled across this little gem. I love this idea of using an old piece in a way that it wasn’t intended for - I’m referring to the cabinet unit obviously, which fits perfectly into this eclectic & collected bathroom.

I’ve blogged this image before but meh, who cares. Why am I doing it again?!? Because I’m in the Caribbean baby! back home for a week for a mini break and a wedding extraordinaire! I Love being home. It’s a different pace of life and a chance for me to recalibrate & recalculate what’s most important to me. I dream of renovating a decrepit gem down here and actually, I’m sure it will happen, but all in good time. For now I’ll take inspiration from this! How good are those ceilings?
