Outdoor spaces...

Hope you all had a great weekend. I have just enjoyed a few days off last week for the school holidays. Needless to say that it rained nearly the whole time we were away! However, it was wonderful to have a small break before the start of the end of year rush (which I feel has already begun). This time of year I am always inspired by outdoor spaces and have been choosing fabric to recover an outdoor lounge setting I recently acquired. I cannot wait until its ready to be enjoyed this Summer - I shall take some photo's when it returns from my upholsterer.

Loving these two outdoor spaces and the splash of colour.

Hey fiddle...

I have been inspired by gardens now the weather is warmer and my garden is starting to grow and flower again. So why not bring the outdoors in and fill a spare corner with a pot or basket of green? One of my favourite indoor plants is the Fiddle Leaf Fig. It has such a wonderful structure and better still they are meant to be easy to care for! Adding a plant makes these rooms look beautiful and fresh.

September is the start of Spring here in the southern hemisphere and it is one of my favourite times of the year. This beautiful Cath Kidston image makes me think of spring cleaning, although I must confess I never traditionally do a big 'spring clean'. However, I am convinced that using some of her gorgeous products might make the job a little more fun and inspiring!
