Fun wallpaper.

I haven't had a wallpaper post for a while so hope I haven't lulled you into a false sense of security! (as you always know wallpaper is NEVER far from my mind....) I saw this and couldn't resist sharing it with you.......

  
I think it is divine. 



Here's another look,
and here it is as a piece. See....it is so perfect for putting where you least expect it. Behind a door or on the side of cupboards. Perfect for a little girl or in a playroom. I could spend ages looking at all that detail. Oh, and while you are there, have you grabbed some of these yet? 






Gorgeous cushions from Temple and Webster. I mean when the shopping is this good online, why would you bother doing the leg work yourself? 
Have a happy week end!  

.......and you know who to call if you want some of that delightful wallpaper....don't you? : )

Where to put it?

It always seems such a shame to me that we have to spoil a room by putting a great big ugly TV in it. I came across this however, and love the way it looks. 


So stylish and really quite subtle.
Here's another option......


I am very happy with this too, especially since it is surrounded by books and acknowledges that yes, people do still read! I think this is my most favourite, cos the actual room is perfect. Check out that mirrored backing on the bookshelves....


And this - tv by stealth. 
Have a good day!

Wise words.


You know before I even say so that I am going to like this on two levels, don't you? 
I love it for what it says and secondly for the awesomness that is the colour combination and mixed text.  
I pinched this (after 'liking' it of course!) from one of my young facebook friends. She is 13 and I have a sneeking suspicion that she may already be smarter than me. (go Claudia.....!) 

"Oh the places you'll go......"

Paired down.

I think this room, which I have decided to describe as 'paired down' has a good thing going on, don't you? There is not too much of anything really, but it all works a treat. 


It has all the basics and also a calm sophistication about it which is really rather inviting. Now I could take a lesson from this in my own life, where I err on the side of more. As I always jokingly tell my son, his first word was "more" and he still uses it a bit too liberally! He always wants more.......its not a bad thing but maybe we could all take the advice of Coco Chanel and remove one accessory as we leave the house. Hmmmmm.......this could certainly apply to the interior of a house too, as perfectly illustrated above. 
As I type I am listening to rain on the roof......a lovely sound and much longed for! 
Pic from here and thanks to The Zush for sending me over!

Fabric Woes.

Its  no secret that I love fabrics, especially a good printed one! Sometimes, however I feel like I need to move heaven and earth just to get the samples. For example, I have been waiting for 3 weeks or more to get a sample of this. 

What I got was this.......

the piddliest little sample ever. How could my customer ever imagine 60m of this in her living room. 
So you know what? It got the flick, just like that.! We are now using a fabric supplied by a company who are more generous with their samples!
I also ordered some fabric from ......wait for it...Lithuania! 

It arrived 4 days later and was beautiful beyond my expectations. 
I am not a horsey person, but this fabric for a client's sons bedroom is soo soft and even more stunning in person. A perfect linen with a navy blue print. 


And just for a laugh to show you I have a sense of humour over all this, here's another fabric I ordered a sample of  to show my client. 


 And ta da.......heres what I got. 

I think its part of the tail but couldn't be sure, as its about the size of a playing card. 
What I really really wanted was this. 


But I searched to no avail. This picture comes from ABT, and is part of Anna's work. 
That fabric is soooo beautiful that I just can't get it out of my mind.
So there it is - a tale of woe. On a good note, I will definately be using my super efficient supplier from donwtown Lithuania again!

Love this artwork!


Don't you? Maybe because it's a hybrid between Aboriginal art and a polished rock face. 
Not sure......either way I find them both mesmerizing! 
Hope you are having a good week end! 
oh, yes....and if you want to buy one of these, go here.

Just in case....

....you were wondering what I am up to today, here's a little hint. 


 Yes, I am up to my elbows in fabric and quotes. 
I don't expect you to feel sorry for me, cos it's my idea of fun!
In fact, you could almost say I get a little high every time I put a scheme together....aahhhhhhhh the satisfaction! 
Hope you are doing what you love today too!

Multifunctional.

So this is a bit Sound of Music-ish, in a good way. Remember when all the children (and of course Maria) had clothes made of curtain material for the big concert? Well, I couldn't help but think of that when I came across Taigan
They are a US based boutique and use all the stunning Quadrille fabrics to make clothing. 
Here are some which caught my eye.....




Now theres another way you can have designer fabrics in your home.....on you! he he he.........
Yes, we have come along way since this! 


I have always loved drapery fabric for clothing and have often had childrens things made from off cuts and samples. Now, I am looking at my remnant fabric supply at a whole new angle. If you happen to see someone walking down the street in regency stripe pants and a toile shirt with a greek key trim, well it could very well just be me. 
Just warning you.
: )

This is it.

Gosh, can't believe where the week has gone! I have half written several blog posts and not one of them has made it on to the www. for one reason or another. It's mainly due to the fact that the phone rings, an email comes through, samples arrive and then 'just like that' I am off, onto another task. 
However, I need to share this with you. Yes, this is it. Well, it's not ACTUALLY it, but its exactly like 'it' will be. What is 'it' you ask? My beach house - of course!


    Isn't 'it' adorable? 
Pure bliss in my mind. 
Would you like to peak inside? 



I hope you are not too annoyed by my beach house obsession. I wont be satisfied until I have one....so until then I will happily bombard you with lovely pics of my virtual version.   
Just because I know I wont be dropping by tomorrow as am off to pick my son up for his first exeat, I will bid you an early 'happy weekend'!

If I ever..............

..............opened a shop again, I would want it to look just like this. 


It's actually MG Home, in case you were wondering. The kind people sent me an invite to their opening but since we are parted by a rather large sea and land mass I will have to give it a miss. 
It looks adorable however and is sure to be full of yummy goodies for the home. 
Oh, to paint a shop front pale pink with a green door.....
As you can see my mind is wondering and that is mainly due to the fact that I am trying to stop myself thinking about my homesick son 24/7. Mmmmm....maybe I could open a shop, mmmmm...maybe I should cut my hair........mmmmm what about wallpapering the bathroom. I could run an online shop....seems as though everyone is doing it. FOCUS......yes, thats better. 
Day by day things will improve. 
Now, IF I did have a shop...mmmm......what sort of stock would I have? 
See you next week in hopefully a better mental state!
