Hello, I am back after a few days working away, a whirlwind of interior design and decor research, fun, friends, rum, long days and hard work. But I’m super excited to share with you today the beautiful things I saw last week in London, up first Liberty! Emotions ranging from the utter joy to extreme [...]
Keeping my eyes peeled for interior decor that will keep the husband happy whilst pleasing my eyes too, I have discovered Case Furniture, established in 2006, Case created a collection of furniture to promote the idea that great design should be available to everyone. Working with some of the worlds’ best furniture designers they have created [...]
If budget were no object or I needed a head turning coat or two, more than a new bathroom suite then these blossom covered beauties would be coming home with me next Spring. Dolce and Gabbana RTW SS2014. All images Vogue.com
Something pretty and pastel this afternoon, with the memory of Summer ice creams still in my mind or a new season of decorating iced biscuits ahead. The catwalk of the latest Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 RTW collection was a fast moving train of perfectly edible candy coloured sugary sweetness and just the right amount of sparkle. With a [...]

And this Monday’s ruffles come from the Alexis Mabille Spring Summer 2013 Couture Show. Strawberry, lemon, Peaches and cream. A taste of Summer in anticipation of it’s arrival. All images Style.com
All the Vogue runway updates I am currently receiving daily spark me to find ways of incorporating some of the magic into my own wardrobe, I had such fun putting together last weeks ‘inspired’ look, that I thought I’d put together a few more. There are so many great colour combinations, with looks to suit [...]
Drawn to all things pale and pretty, I always find my eyes go straight to nudes when I am out shopping lately. Mixed with shimmer and texture, the more layers the better I say! Got a bit carried away yesterday and found all these pretty’s online. Before I go on a spending spree, I’m going [...]
After years of indecision I have finally found a pair of sun glasses I want to commit to. These vintage style Key Largo frames (top) from Rock Optica. I got them in classic black and quartz with a graduated tint. Designed by Tom Herrington (bottom picture, black tie) and modelled in tortoiseshell by the beautiful Katherine, [...]

These are just a few pictures of her beautiful designs, keep up to date with buying info and new looks on Katherine’s new Facebook Page. Looks like they had a great day at the shoot [...]

Up to my elbows in matchboxes and all the things that need to go inside them, but I have slipped away for a break, to read the pretty pages of 91 Magazine’s second issue. I love to see what Caroline and her contributors have been up to, our paths sometimes cross at blog or press [...]
Beautiful illustrations from Amy Borrell’s wonderful portfolio over at her site Cake with Giants, found via Jo Klima on twitter this morning, and if you haven’t already seen her design for the Frankie Magazine diary for 2012, go swoon at it’s beauty! x All images Cake with Giants.
I love short or three quarter length sleeved coats, just right for flashing a bit of wrist on a sunny winter day or for pairing with long gloves if it’s chilly, and these from the Marni Fall 2011 RTW collection are beautiful. Beyond my budget, but Zara always do a good alternative. Below, I can’t get [...]
My favourite booth at the country living Christmas fair was that of Rosie’s Armoire, with dustings of powder blue all around, sprinkles of embellished sherbet velvet, vintage cutlery with a delicate patina, pretty charms with vintage roses, hand stitched fairies jostling alongside lavender sachets, old suit cases and wooden crates filled with owner Helen’s signature printed [...]
Love love love this feathered ‘quilt’ wallpaper from Georgia Horton. I love the pink colour way, maybe my husband and I will have to have a bedroom each when we move and vote each night as to where we’ll stay? Or could we agree on grey?
This morning, I am on the hunt for a selection of princess worthy pink wallpapers, (please let me know if you have spotted any particularly pretty new designs). Whilst on my travels I found this new look book for Sanderson’s Bloomsbury collection, after my visit to Charleston earlier this year, this makes me very happy. I [...]
I’m leaving you again, last minute call to work at Brisfest in Bristol, so I will wish you all a happy weekend and share a link I only discovered yesterday, inspiring outfit profiles posted by ASOS fans. Have a great weekend, see you Monday x All images Fashion finder @ ASOS
Up until recently wedding stationary on this side of the pond has been very dull, tons of pearlescent card stock, cream bows and white writing, I even ordered my own invites from the US, so you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered the beautiful work of Lizzie Carpenter of Peppermint paper designs, [...]

Back to work today, I feel like I have been away from the shop forever and I am looking forward to my walk to the Old-town. Sadly I was not the winner of the euro millions draw and will not be filling my work and play wardrobe with the entirety of my two favourite collections [...]
If you are online tomorrow morning your Saturday browsing should definitely start with a trip to Zosienka and Rosie Illustration I have seen their Walrus tea towel before but never any of the other pieces and they just keep getting better. I love the lion in pyjammas tote and the tiny painted ceramic hearts. And well, while [...]
With my old dolls house laying empty and in a bad way, I was wondering if I should start the epic project of giving it a makeover, and with charleston still stuck in my mind I wonder if that is the direction I should take? Also it will need some inhabitants as the original dwellers [...]
