It's Monday, it's slightly damp and drizzly and all weekend I've had my mind on table vignettes and how they give immediate visual stimulation like small pockets of art.


I love the way the green dress in the photograph is echoed in the ginger jars

Grey nights

It's been raining since Monday, soft drizzle turning to hard nails-in-your-face rain.  The sky is dark and there is no sign of the sun.  It looks like nature is feeling rather sorry for itself.  But as most of you know, I LOVE rain.  I don't like it to go on for weeks at a time, but a little rain changes the landscape, creates a different kind of atmosphere and I suppose this is what I enjoy ...

A bedroom, soft and cosy, all decked out in grey....moody and yet calming at the same time...


Fun geometric wallpaper

A comfy sleigh bed





A great armoire

A soft pile rug underfoot

Comfy seating

A quirky lamp, just to mix it up a bit!
I've been coveting this particular lamp for months now...hoping a certain someone will catch a hint...

A cosy throw

Now I just need a cup of tea and my book...


Have a great weekend!

Bedroom bliss

A room that has to suit the changing needs of a 19 year old at uni, and she LOVES pink and is very feminine.

Oriental Garden Chalk Pink wallpaper by Laura Ashley was chosen...




Two style boards to choose....now which one....









Have a lovely weekend!

Autumn

It's a true English Autumn day with the wind blowing and the clouds quickly drifting across a grey sky.  No wonder we get so excited to see orange in Autumn!  A colour to brighten up any Autumn day.  Orange and red conjure up warmth and that's exactly what we need in interiors, to give our lives a bit of umph on a dull grey day when the sky is heavy with rain...

I love seeing the colours of nature reflected in the interiors!

Have a great week!
