Ralph Lauren Inspired House

Horsey Heaven

Once in a while a house comes together almost of it's own accord... this is my last big project before the baby arrives and I have to say that it might just be my all time favourite!  It incorporates almost every single interior fetish I have ever had, from the navy blue walls and contrasting white shutters, to the horse prints and Ralph Lauren fabric wallpaper.  I loved working on it, loved styling it and loved photographing it.... this house has been one long lesson in happiness!

Keep Calm & Carry On They Say

Sadly I'm going through another incredibly busy time at work at the moment, hence the lack of posting. The house I'm working on goes out next week and is promising to be beautiful (if only I can get all the last minute details finalised!). I will then have LOTS of gorgeous pics to post but until then my lovelies, I just needed some tranquil spaces to help calm my frazzled mind!

Off-Beat Magic

I adore this interior for it's combination of unexpected elements. Not only is it quirky, unique and full of character but it's simple beauty is so uncontrived in a haphazard way. The eclectic choice of furniture, the whimsical styling, the subtle colour palette.... this is definitely my kind of space! Have a wonderful Friday everyone x

Sweet Surprise

I woke up this morning feeling a bit glum... it was raining (again), I was tired and all I wanted to do was spend the day lying in a park under the non-existent winter sun.... but then I opened up my blog and found that I'd won an award!!!!! My first EVER!

Laura May over at Home Sweet Home nominated me, which is by far the loveliest thing that has happened in ages - so thank you gorgeous LM, not only for the award, but for always posting such endearing little comments on my blog!

The rules of the award are:
1. Thank the award giver (tick)
2. List 10 things that make you happy
3. Pass the award onto 5 others

1. Waking up next to Andre every morning
2. The idea of being a mamma (only 3 months to go!)
3. Giggling with my friends
4. The perfect cup of tea (2 teabags, lots of milk)
5. Pretty pastel colours in any shape or form
6. Making porridge for two and having breakfast together
7. Long chats with my Mum who lives too far away
8. Writing
9. Taking photos on my new camera

1. Bree from A Paddington Perspective for her impeccable style
2. Lucy from Indigo Obsession for being the newest recruit to the blogging world and becuase we see the world in such a similar way
3. Dustjacket Attic for providing such beautiful imagery
4. Julie from Being Ruby for being the personification of inspiration
5. Michelle from Every Little Thing for being such a talented little miss

So congratulations and thank you to all the above ladies - you each inspire me in different ways and I adore looking at your beautiful blogs x

The Perfect Chair

Just like finding Andre, I'm convinced that the universe will one day offer me up the perfect armchair... and just like Andre, I have been searching for it for a lifetime!

Bathroom Fancy

I have a confession to make.... despite my undying love of all things white, I have a secret love of patterned bathrooms. I suspect it has something to do with the wildy over-the-top pink bathroom that was in my grandmother Marnie's house growing up - complete with a plum coloured suction grip shower mat that I took great pleasure in removing and re-sticking on the walls. Whether it be wallpaper, blinds or tiles, a little bit of pattern is so decadent don't you think?
