Embrace your own style…and win a signed copy of my new book!!

  It can be a bold move embracing your own style. Some do it with ease, not looking to the left or the right. Others of us can take years to take that first step. I am grateful for the whole ‘eclectic’ movement within the design field because this is my true style. This is […]

Day 5 A collection of a common theme is hard to beat and as you’ve probably noticed after seeing the photos of the last few days– I don’t mind a good collection! My current obsession is the humble plate and if there is nothing else purchased for the house on our travels, there will always […]

Day 4 I’m an animal lover, but as I’ve gotten older and busier, I’ve found the non living type much easier to care for. They will still greet you with a joyful face when you come home but after the initial purchase, they’re virtually trouble free. My friend Clyde greets me at our front door […]

Day 2 I’m currently existing in a woody wonderland. The shop is normally full of Peter’s furniture, but we’ve just received some faux wood pieces (in photo real fabric) we bought in France – a big log ottoman and some fantastic tree trunk stools. And behind my “desk” on a small oak table are the […]

Day 1 I’m a bad sleeper, Sunday nights are probably the worst. My husband Peter’s theory is that I get myself too worked up about the week ahead. You see we own a beautiful shop together, he designs and makes all our wonderful furniture and I’m the shop chic, always thinking and planning and moving […]

It has been another fabulously full week. A productive week. A week that has me dreaming of a Friday night in and a simple Saturday, relaxing at home with my beautiful family. I have a pile of ‘New releases’ (of the design variety of course) waiting for me to delve into and a gorgeous new […]
