How fab is that wallpaper? It’s called my museum by Wall & Deco. I think this would be perfect for a smaller room in a house - like a reading room or even just the back wall of a reading nook. I think it can work in so many different spaces, old & collected as well as contemporary & sleek.

I love this image of an extra long dining table with multiple chandeliers overhead and yes I would call those chandeliers. They are in fact modeled from real, well renouned chandeliers. Their shape is taken from the negative space around a chandelier or better yet think of them as the silhouettes. Called “Neverending Glory” they are the brainchild of Czech Duo Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus. They are so simple & clean in form yet still have this essence of grandeur. Modern day beauties.

I would kill for a bathroom like this! I mean just look at those bones! The marble bath is gorgeous and it looks old - similar to a Water Monopoly bath. Water Monopoly quite possibly do the most beautiful baths in the the world, specialising in reclaimed and antique tubs. They are pricey but nothing can really compare to them. Just beautiful.

There have been images of this kitchen floated before but I’ve never seen it like this. Isn’t it fabulous?!! I love the mix of stainless steel with worn wooden floors and that pendant is incredible! It looks like a mid-century piece - but don’t quote me on that. I don’t suppose any of you out there know where one can find it?
So I stumbled upon this little beauty over on Design Sponge this morning and just had to share it with you. It’s the family home of designer Betsy Ginn and I have to say she has awesome style! It’s right up my street - lived in & old mixed quirky pieces and a few contemporary lines. She’s not afraid to experiment which is a large part of creating these kind of spaces and the result is fab. Take a tour of her place and see for yourself!
Many, many hours have been spent thinking about how to layout my kitchen. Too many. Damn that awkward little space! It’s certainly a challenge with a gigantic window and fireplace to contend with and somehow I have to fit a bathroom in the space too…… My brain needs to take a break from design and look at something easier on the eye. Like finishes :) I’m liking the grey and I’m liking the exposed brick. I’m not liking the pewny table but that is replaceable.
It’s hard to place what exactly it is about this room that I like. It’s a bit of everything really - the mixture of finishes, different metallics and I love the sofa. I’m pretty sure it’s called the Polar Bear sofa, designed by Jean Royere in the 1950’s. I nearly died when I saw what these bad boys retail for, if you can find one! Yeah…..good luck with that.

It is only Tuesday? * banging head on desk * It’s 16 days until I fly home for some Christmas R&R (Yeah, I’m not counting at ALL) and I have so much to do in between now and then. I need a clone, or 5. This image reminds me that I have to finish painting the walls in my deconstructed living room. It’s virtually the same grey which is exciting and moody and well, dark.

I have a love hate relationship with the colour purple. I find it one of the more difficult colours to work with and even if I like the idea of using it I rarely do. I love for example lilac, but there are some shades that make my the corners of my mouth turn down and my eyes squint (it’s attractive……). The above is sorta kinda doing that but not so much that I would dismiss it - perhaps it’s a little too muddy for my liking but then again would it work if it were any other shade of purple? What do you think? Do you love or loath it?
