Sneak peek at my kitchen...

I hope you all had a great weekend! I thought I would start the week off with a snap shot of my kitchen (taken on my phone...sorry about the quality). As many of you know I am currently renovating a cottage and the kitchen was one of the first things that had to go! I pulled out the original 1930's kitchen which was long overdue for an update. Although the space is still 'cozy' it is now a lot more functional and I enjoy cooking in it.

Beautiful Style...

I love the work of Interior Stylist Claudia Bryant who is based in the UK.
There are many elements about her rooms I love....a spot to enjoy at the top of the stairs, I like the cluster of frames and the vintage balustrade.

I adore velvet fabric...the colours in this room are beautiful.

Two of my favourite things on display...books and flowers!!

My backyard...

My paving has finally been finished and I am no longer walking out my backdoor onto dirt...hooray! I potted these Geraniums last weekend which I have been patiently growing from cuttings. This weekend I will be digging garden beds and getting the ground ready for grass. Hope you all have a great weekend! xx

Beautiful bathroom spaces from my files I love....I have used these same hexagonal floor tiles in my bathroom which I have recently rennovated. I will share some images as soon as the painting is finished!

I love shutters in bathrooms...

I love the use of time worn pieces like this dressing table which has been given a new life in this bathroom.

....this ledge provides the perfect space for displaying beautiful pieces in a bathroom with limited space.

Simple Style...

I love these gorgeous images by stylist and photographer Anna Williams. I especially love the simplicity of the drawers and tablescape in this entryway and the muted colours.

...and this beautiful terrace.

Happy weekend to you is a long weekend here and so I am planning to get a few jobs done around the house. The landscaper has managed to finish my retaining wall amidst all the rain we have had this week and hopefully by next week he should have the paving completed as well. Hopefully we get some sunshine over the weekend to dry out all of the mud surrounding my home. I am really looking forward to being able to plant the garden.

Have a beautiful weekend! x

Sea colours...

I hope you are all having a great week. I am currently working on a beachfront apartment for a client and love the colours in this image....inspiring!  I will hopefully have some progress shots to share with you shortly.
