Bright & Breezy



I love the painted timber lining boards and the shabby chic feel to the place!
 The splashes of colour in bright pastels makes this home warm and inviting. 
I love the thought of long lie ins, sunny brunches, cosy nooks for reading, 
cups of tea and home baked treats straight from the oven!

What a perfect place for a relaxing weekend!

Garden Rose Party


Today is sunny and gorgeous - a perfect day for Sunday lunch alfresco. This elegant brunch in rose pink is sophisticated yet relaxed with some unexpected twists. The setting combines formal elements with casual style and quirky touches. Vintage Chinese floral plates mix effortlessly with rose tinted crystal and coloured linen napkins. Toparies and simple, mixed blooms arranged in tin garden pots make for an enchanting centre piece running the length of the table. Dining chairs with hand-painted silk upholstery move outdoors to add a sense of grandeur to the scene. Iced tea quench thirsty guests and everyone is treated to a goodie bag to remind them of a perfect afternoon!

Danish Style


Love the vintage Scandinavian styling in these summer houses.
What a perfect weekend getaway.
Fresh, pretty and filled with light.
I love the simple palette of white and grey.
I am also loving the lime washed floorboards.

Enjoy your weekend!

Pretty As A Picture


Just too pretty!

This is my idea of a perfect country table setting :-
pink, pretty with a touch of vintage Scandinavian styling.
A beautiful collection of fresh fruit flowers and countryware
begs us to take a seat at the table.

Autumn Romance

I love these romantic images of a leisurely weekend stroll through the park,
rugged up against an Autumn chill in boots, beanies and cosy knits.
Holding hands, laughing, warm coffee and hot dogs.

Just perfect!

Vintage Pastels

For those on a limited budget wanting to decorate shabby chic style,
 here's a few handy tips:-
1. Less is more. Keep whatever you have simple.
2. Choose select items - a table, rug, chandelier as the centre pieces of your room.
3. Fresh flowers in separate bud vases add luxury and beauty.
4. Incorporate scented candles into the room - fragrance is important!
5. Mix and match white fabrics with different textures
6. Go flea market shopping and raid thrift stores to find inexpensive yet perfect accents for your home

Country Style Dessert Bar


I am a huge fan of the dessert bar. A table laden with colour co-ordinated treats and home baked goodies is a visual feat that few can resist! With a little bit of planning and an eye for detail even the most reluctant of hostesses can throw together a dessert bar without too much effort. This clever

A Touch Of Pink


A little country decorating inspiration.
All these spaces have a few common elements.
The palettes are simple and neutral
The spaces are clean and uncluttered
The rooms are full of character and charm
Oh, and I love the touches of pink!
