more coral images i love

Coral placed in an all white room just adds the perfect textures to give this home a more coastal feel.

adding texture to white

I recently worked on a clients home where we added clusters of coral and candles on a sideboard, we used mainly white and natural finishes through-out the home and the coral just finished it off beautifully especially when the candles were lit, it looks great under a tall glass dome too!

A more casual chandelier

This is the new chandelier in-store in a few weeks, casual and perfect on your veranda would look great in a beach house too!

Lunch any-one!

I just love this image again from Rachel Ashwell but what female wouldn't love to sit around with a special group of friends for lunch or a high tea in this pretty setting, all white lots of silver and candles and white flowers set the scene!

wooden chandelier

I really am obsessed with slip covers! I want to slip cover everything at the moment!!!!!!!

but I posted this image because I have just purchased for the shop a very similar chandelier its made out of wood, lime washed with little wooden beads perfect for on a veranda!

I'm loving aqua and white at the moment its so fresh and summery this is another image from Rachel Ashwell, I haven't visited her site in quiet awhile but while browsing on my favourite blog I came across some images which inspired me to check out her web-site and it didn't disappoint it was great to see she still has that gorgeous homey feel but less fussy and much easier to live with!

A little bit too pretty for me, but this image from Rachel Ashwell's is just so gorgeous i couldn't resist posting it!

a great weekend

I had every intention on going for a picnic this week-end but instead we spring cleaned cupboards and had a massive throw out, much to my childrens horror! I'm definately not a hoarder and i just got in one of those moods. I must be crazy as I work 6 days a week but they all couldnt understand how i would enjoy doing such a task but i did and it feels great!

simply done!

I have just ordered a similar sofa for my new home but with a slip cover, I so wanted a white lounge but instead I settled for two white slip covers on my chairs and natural coloured linen for my sofa, crazy I must be with my children but I'm making my chairs a no go zone for my kids wish me luck! I love the all white floor and the racked ceilings, simply done it would make the perfect beach house!

l'plunge Day-spa

I haven't blogged for a few weeks because I have been busy doing the final touches to an interior design project i have been working on for some time, one of my best friends had a dream and I was privileged to be part of it, it has been so much fun and we made a great team, some times our ideas were different but it only made it all that much better, Karen had a vision and was unstoppable! but together with lots of friends l'plunge is no longer the dream! I know she will be a huge success I'm so proud of her and all she has achieved!

On a final note....

This image from Day-home collection is a true reflection of my style, Navy and white, touches of silver,candles and lots of coral and shells!

"Day" Birger et Mikkelsen

Day by Birger Et Mikkelsen is our new fashion label in store early next year, the summer 08 range is so stunning i wanted it all! in fact i think i bought it all even shoes and accessories! we were one of a select few chosen to stock Day. Summer 08 seems like such a long way but in the fashion world we are busy buying winter and our international labels a year in advance. I'm often amazed how fashion and interior design seem to follow each other in both fabric,colour and design. One of the most exciting parts of my job is being exposed to both and it has given me lots of insight into the next big thing! a hint lots and lots of white and much to my delight Navy is big! Day home has not hit our shores just yet but there beautiful candles and room sprays are simply devine and arrive at lily-g next month!

Day Birger

Loose natural linen covers look great with navy cushions the mix is beautifully blended to create a coastal feel.
