Wednesday's white rooms...

In the spirit of things warming up in my part of the world, this week's white rooms are actually fabulous white outdoor entertaining spaces. Perfect spots for a summer soiree or two...

Bright lights...

It's hard to believe that November is a mere day away! The year is really flying. And with talk already beginning of Christmas celebrations and holidays, it won't be long before it's time to get out the decorations and lights! I do love Christmas lights so I was a bit taken by these gorgeous spaces which make the fairy light a permanent feature. And why not I say...

Kelly on the Coveteur...

The clever people at the Coveteur have done it again with this gorgeous photo shoot featuring style icon, Kelly Wearstler. Doesn't she always look amazing?! And of course her Beverly Hills home is pretty spectacular too. Check out all the pics here.





And she has a new book out too. Will need to add this to the library...


And you can buy it here :)

Office cute...

Some very cute and inspiring home office spaces for you today. Whilst a home office space is the perfect place to get creative and stamp your own personal style, there seems to be a few essential elements - a signature chair, a fabulous lamp, some wall inspiration. Some well coordinated colour and an animal or two don't go astray either...

Wednesday's white rooms...

So in keeping with Monday's spring theme, this week's white rooms have a splash of mint or citrus green keeping them fresh and bright...

Some gorgeous botanicals in this airy sitting room...

And green subways galore in these vibrant kitchens...


And loving every detail of this quirky bathroom...

Spring's first flowers...

Spring flowers all around at my place over the weekend! Definitely the best part of the year in the garden. I got these gorgeous sweet peas at the market...



And in my own garden, the David Austin's have started to flower...


As have some big and bright hybrid tea roses...


I hope those of you with a spring garden are also finding some joy :)

This week's love...

If you haven't already you must go and check out the 'Room for Colour 2012' contest over at Apartment Therapy. If you're a colour lover like me the photos will just make you smile! Simple as that :) So many bright and bold examples of colour done really well. This is one of my favourite entries - a real vibrant space with plenty of little details to take in. See the many other great entries here.





Have a wonderful weekend everyone :)

The great tulip debate...

A friend recently brought a lovely marble topped tulip table for her new apartment. Over the weekend we debated chair choices. Can you put the traditional tulip chairs with other more classic furniture pieces?? I think this first photo shows you definitely can! In the end we decided that the reason that the chair choice was hard is because most things seem to work well with the tulip! And so the pondering continues... Which chairs do you think work best?

Wednesday's white rooms...

Some classics for you this week. Beautiful palettes of whites, greys, marble and a dash of deep brown or black. Nothing too crazy but timeless and elegant spaces that I'm sure must be a delight to live in...

Kelly and the leopard...

More is more with the leopard print in this gorgeous bold study. I love the way that even the pinboard is leopard print! The colours in the chair, flooring and framed photos all blend seamlessly with the leopard print and the kelly green desk and large white lamp provide a striking contrast. A very cute and clever space...

Pretty spring plates...

So after the coldest October day in years here last week, things are finally looking up and we are enjoying some lovely spring weather. My garden is bursting with rose buds and I can't wait for the first round of flowers to appear. Will be picking them all and filling up my vases. Spring is just the time for getting out your prettiest plates and enjoying a rose inspired afternoon tea or two I think...

This week's love...

A bit of fashion for your Friday! This week I discovered Australian based fashion brand 'Rittenhouse'. They have a gorgeous collection of classic, cute and comfortable pieces and some lovely shoes and accessories too. Lots of kelly green and navy which are two of my favourite shades to wear. This first green skirt is my pick from their current collection. You can see more and visit their online store here.






And just in time for some weekend reading - a gorgeous new edition of Lonny! My favourite article was the cover  about the West Village apartment of artist Mary Nelson Sinclair. Spotting yet another fabulous pink couch! Her paintings look pretty amazing too...



And these elephant tables are just divine...



Have a fabulous weekend whatever it is you're up to and thanks for stopping past this week :)
