Complimentary

Jun 30, 2011

Good afternoon!

I quite enjoy the way these two photos look together. Very different, but they work.



Rather like my BFF and I. Total and complete opposites, we compliment each other perfectly :)

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

Do Good

Jun 26, 2011

Good morning!

I seem to be on a bit of an orange kick lately, as many of my recently favourited Etsy items had orange in them! Thought they would make for a lovely summery Etsy collection :)

Beachy Style

Jun 25, 2011

Good morning!

One of my favourite posts is this post I did back in March. I just adore that photo of Marilyn, and every so often it pops up on my "You might also like" when I'm previewing my post before I publish it. Well, it showed up the other day and I was inspired to have a little more Marilyn! So I found some beautiful beachy images, and pulled some rooms inspired by the beautiful blues & oranges in the photos :)







I just adore that top image of Marilyn! Love me a big chunky sweater :)

And for those of you wondering about the Blog Crawl, I will be emailing everyone to confirm their date this week. There's still plenty of room to join!! So tell all your blogging friends & get them in on the fun!!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Colour-by-Room: Raspberry Mint

Jun 23, 2011

Good morning!

Before I did anything else with this post, I uploaded my photos and no problemo! Blogger seems to have fixed itself for now. Let's all cross our fingers and hope it doesn't happen again!

I've kinda been pinning like crazy lately, and I found this room in my Pinterest travels. Adore the minty green walls with those pinky-purpley chairs!



 I decided to switch out the wall & chair colours for my picks when I found this gorg settee! Such clean lines and it looks super comfy!
Jayson Home & Garden Carlisle Settee

This vanity is handcarved with an inlay top. Seriously. Click the link below & check it out. My search ended when I found this because it's SO unique and delicate. And the perfect colour for my imaginary room :)

 Yum. That's all I have to say about the colour below. I probably wouldn't do a whole room in it because it is so bold & vibrant, but man, it's such a deep delicious colour!

Farrow & Ball Rectory Red

 Sigh. Minty-green/Tiffany blue is one of my fave colours. I have several nail polishes in that colour range and I find they look gorgeous with my skin tone. And I lurve it with that deep raspberry pink!

Hope you're all having a lovely week!!

Blue Bouquet

Jun 22, 2011

Good morning!

I was going through my pinterest boards this morning looking for some colour inspiration, and I found it in these gorgeous flowers!






One of my fave colour combos ever!

And big big thanks to Britt over at My Daily Randomness & Pink Peacock for her suggestion to upload photos in the HTML editor! Very glad I could get this post up even though Blogger's having issues :)

Hope you're all having a lovely day!

Design-by-Room: Sunny Patio

Jun 21, 2011

Good morning!

Thankyou for all your sweet comments on yesterday's post! They were all very appreciated :)

Today's room design is just a quick one as yesterday I twisted my foot and now have a 'deep tissue injury'. Fun. So I'm resting as much as possible this morning and hopefully I can make it to all of your blogs later on :)


I kept the palette to just really simple browns and yellows and greens, but tried to include some really great patterns. There's a few morrocan-y accents with the lanterns and table which I thought was really fun. Would be lovely to spend all day out here :)

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

Why Not

Jun 20, 2011







Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

I've been doing some thinking lately. Feeling like I really need to follow my path and not get distracted by things along the way. So there might be some changes around here...haven't decided yet. But I will still be blogging, don't you worry haha

We all have dreams, but sometimes we kind of 'shush' them because they're not practical, not feasible, too ambitious, not this, too that. But lately I've been wondering, why not?
