I'm sorry for my lack of posts and visits the last few weeks. I mentioned we are creating new systems in our business, we started by employing an operations manager (big word for me He! He!) so that all I have to do is the fun part create, buy and design.We now have a retail floor manager, decorators and admin staff that will make us "iron out our creases" so to speak and provide even better services to our clients. We want to expand and grow our interior design business to become a team of decorators. The recession is keeping people home more, they are entertaining at home, having dinner parties rather than dining at expensive restaurants. My customers are wanting us to help set an impressive dining table, add new curtains to there home, sometimes its just small little touches they are after, some wanting a complete make over. I'm just loving that are homes are becoming a place we love, not modern minimalist spaces that lack any character or style. The old crystal is coming out, linen tablecloths, candles and beautiful flowers, tables are being filled with books and family photos are back on the wall.

When louis Vuitton in 1854 designed and introduced high end steamer trunks and luggage, I wondered if he really understood that his monogram would be possibly be one of the worlds most sought after product. His monogram label has been counterfeited by the best, sold in every market place and reproduced million of times, yet it still is one of the leading designer brands of the world. He actually produced the first designer brand in modern history and his brand is considered the symbol of status around the world. I was amazed when I very stupidly starting obsessing about owning a vintage chest to use as a coffee table, did I really understand the magnitude of owning a vintage LV chest? Is a price range of $15,000-$50,000 unreasonable for a coffee table a vintage one at that! I suppose its a lot like my no brand black luggage that goes around and around on the conveyer belt at the airport, clearly unidentified because I forgot to to add my signature, designer, gro-grain ribbon! Oh to be a star or Royalty and own such beautiful luggage even as a coffee table, maybe in my next life time :)

"There is no more sure-fire combination than blue with white- it simply won't date" no wonder more people list blue as their favourite colour than any other. From royal blue, to aqua, and the palest of duck egg blue's, shades of blue are incredibly easy to live with..... quoted by home beautiful.

How many times do you lend a friend a book to never see it again, of course it's never intentional it just gets forgotten, but now with our book stickers it will give a very subtle reminder. xx
I'm loving our white magnolia jug, handmade in Italy. I have only purchased the jugs for the store but the range includes a full dinner setting which can be ordered on request.
Beautiful vintage linens passed down generations, where do you find it? I need to go market shopping in France, I so want to go........
