Ooooo Lilac! Yep I’m still in my lilac phase I’m afraid. I’m sure that subconsciously all this colour craving means something……. and funnily enough a very pale lilac is something I’m currently testing out on my walls at home. I’m thinking of painting the underside of the stairs or the kitchen ceiling in this luscious yet subtle colour. I’ll let you know how it turns out……

Valentines day smalintines day. Thank goodness that’s over. Not that I subscribe to the vday madness - I just can’t understand all the fuss? and I don’t believe that openly projecting your affections one day a year is enough. It’s not a competition people, it’s the little things that count. Do I sound bitter? Naaaaa I choose to look at it as grounded :) Anyhoooo!! moving forward, I’m choosing to filter my love into my interiors. I’m off to an auction house today to view all the goodies. *Sigh* there is no love greater than the sound of the hammer “winning” you that piece you have absolutely no use for. Perfect!

I feel like I might be having a slight aneurysm………The things I would do to a space like this! Tall ceilings, battered chevron floors, periods features. It’s screaming for a little more TLC and would be the perfect pad to mix contemporary with old. It’s pretty amazing as is but could do with lightening up. I’m thinking a giant vintage Sputnik chandelier. Any of the ones on 1st dibs will do.

The old split personality is casting doubts in my mind again. Just when I had decided I was definitely going to paint my living room back to white (from a charcoal grey) I stumble across an image like this. Balls. The internal struggle has reignited and now I’m thinking keep the grey! What do you think? To keep the Grey, or not to keep the grey? That most definitely is the question!?

Well it certainly has been a busy two days since being back at work! I’ve moved offices and I have to say I have slight office envy after stumbling across this little beauty. I mean how cool is that!?? To be fair I’m not sure I’d get any work done in there? It’s called Natural Curiosities and is actually a Art house/Art Studio based in LA. They produce all sorts of fun things and luckily have expanded in recent years to sell it directly to the public via their online shop Wilcox Store. Ugh, I’m green with envy!

There is an awful lot going on in this quirky kitchen. I wouldn’t normally recommend so many cupboards! but here it is done with purpose & style and all in all it works fantastically. The wallpaper splash back however is very brave! Perhaps these people don’t cook very often because I can’t imagine it would be easy to keep wallpaper clean of grease, oil and other foodie related splashes and mishaps.
On the last eve of 2013 it’s hard to find a image that sums up this last year…….so I’m not going to try, but I did find this and thought how lovely! If anything it’s the perfect picture to end the year - I only hope that going forward 2014 will be as bright and unexpected as that blue. Happy New Years everyone!
