Baby it's cold outside…


Sometimes it doesn’t really matter how cold it is outside, as long as you have a
few key ingredients - a nice bowl of warming soup, an old black and white film to
watch while snuggling up on the sofa by a log fire. A good book, some favourite magazines
and Billie Holiday crooning softly in the background - yes, you’ll be fine for a few
days at least and you’ll have a bit of time to think about your next decorating refresh too!
I’m thinking monochrome at the moment… which can be black and white or basically just
one colour, it’s a striking combination and I’m going to have some fun with my downstairs
cloakroom. It’s going to be a difficult choice with 1,718 papers to choose from!
Here’s my shortlist…for now!

Last thought for you…

'More is more. Less is never more - Less is obviously less. Who wants less?'


Enough said :)

The look of love

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and as we’re celebrating Valentines day today, I thought
I'd choose the colour crush of the moment, blush pink.
I’ve never really been a pink person myself but have always liked the colour of a freshly
plastered wall and a pretty ballet slipper. I’ve tried to copy the colour in paint with a mixed degree of success over the years, so to my surprise I'm actually loving the new dusty pink blush, it’s the perfect new neutral and sits so happily with so many colours. I feel sure that this trend
is going to last for many seasons to come…
I’ve chosen some complementary paints and wallpapers that have caught my eye to make this mood board.

Blush pink, the new neutral for grown up girls…& boys!  Happy Valentines day all, maybe celebrate with glass of Rosé!
