Not Out of The Woods Yet

It’s been awhile now since I first saw it, but I’m still smitten with the Woods wallpaper from Cole & Son.   I think there is something so hauntingly beautiful about the design, and I adore it.

Wallpaper for Wee Ones

When decorating for my tiny clients, {just as for my grown up ones} I always aim to create a space with staying power….timeless, classic, with pieces and patterns they won’t tire of easily.

Well, lovely Ally of From the Right Bank has been hosting another challenge to define your style in one picture. Yikes!

Before & After – Ben's Bedside Table

Before – cherry coloured faux bamboo cabinet from a local consignment store. I love me some faux bamboo, but this incarnation was not so hot in my book, so a little TLC was in order.

{Details} Round Mirrors

I’ve got round mirrors on the brain. I LOVE the look of them, particularly above a bed or a fireplace. The tension of the round shape placed adjacent to a boxy square or rectangular one is just lovely.  So let me present some visual evidence in my case for round mirrors, you’ll soon be a devotee [...]
