I've always been a fan of nickel hardware in kitchens and in our recent kitchen revamp we used nickel and we love the look. I have noticed recently though that gold and brass seem to be back in vogue. There are some great examples around and I think they look really stylish when done well but I'm not sure I could make the transition. What do you think? Would you stick with silver tones in the kitchen or be bold and add some gold or brass?

Is anyone else noticing a lot of this styling trend around at the moment? Jewels and accessories scattered around as bright and pretty decor. Maybe it's stemmed from the clever folk over at the Coveteur? In any event, it makes for some lovely photos and is a great excuse to get your best pieces out on display!

Loving the combination of fresh mint shades with warmer neutrals. Definitely a combination that can transcend the seasons!

We're planning for a bit of a refurb at our place over the coming months, particularly now that our little renos are finally nearing an end. One thing that keeps coming up on our list of ideas is lovely lucite. There's just something about it that I love and it works really well in small spaces too. I'm finding there's not as much of it about as there seems to be overseas however I'm hoping we can at least find some dining chairs and a coffee table. Would love to get my hands on one of these gorgeous benches in this first shot too though...
Oh and an Hermes throw wouldn't go astray either!

Lots of things to love in this week's white rooms!
First up this very stylish dining room. A great mix of modern and traditional features. Loving the fabulous lucite dining chairs...
All the pastel hues and perfectly arranged accessories caught my eye in this lovely kitchen. It has such an inviting layout and I admire anyone who can keep exposed shelving in a kitchen neat and tidy...
Such a cleverly put together light nook. The string of lights flank the art work and the green shades move the eye across the space. Very lovely...
So often the entrance way can be overlooked but not here. The white door is grand against the grey and the contrasting flooring, decorative touches and classic lighting ensure all the proportions are just right...
Enjoy your Wednesday all :)

Whilst possibly a little bright for some, I'm loving these citrus touches. Whilst a whole room may be a little overwhelming, an occasional piece or splash of wallpaper or fabric can really bring life to a space. Fitting in the warmer weather and bringing some light and cheer during the cooler months....
A little citrus can clearly go a long way :)

I went shopping with my sister last weekend and noticed that we both tend to gravitate towards things that sparkle and shine. Bags, tops, shoes...if it sparkles, we need to check it out. Like little magpies. Must be a genetic flaw. Anyone else a sufferer?!

Dreaming of a relaxing weekend that looks a bit like this....
Sadly though, with the first tradesmen arriving at 8am this morning, I'm clearly kidding myself! Enjoy your weekend all. Hope someone is having a relaxing one :)

This week I'm loving Longchamp's Spring 2012 campaign starring Miss Moss. She is still looking amazing! Loving the smokey eyes and the sun kissed hair, she's the ultimate boho princess...

And speaking of the wonderful Kate, yet another book to add to my ridiculously long book wishlist...
You can buy it here.
And lastly, this week a very clever friend started a very clever new online business. f there are any hairdressers out there looking for an innovative way to sort out their salons, be sure to check this out.
Thanks so much for stopping by G&G this week. It's been a busy one and I'm sooo looking forward to the weekend! Have a great Friday :)

Lots of pretty features to be found in this week's white rooms!
First up - this dressing table stunner. I love the way the shape of the mirror is picked up in the curves of the stool. The dresser itself is gorgeous and the mismatched frames finish it off perfectly...
This dining room has much to covet - the fabulous bunch of lights, the grand windows and the classic parquetry floors...oh and of course the blue and white china! Can never have too much I say :)
And lastly, this luxe bathroom. Classic fixtures, beautiful marble and a french door out onto the patio - yes please!
Have a wonderful Wednesday all :)
