Mum's book

A Good Quote

{ image via ilovehoneylace }

Today I got an email from a good friend of mine. It was one to send around which can be a little hit or mis but this one struck a chord.  Hope it does with you too  xx

"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Illustration Love....

{ illustrations by Marion Bolognesi for Rouge Magazine }

Major fan of these illustrations that Trendland sent me via my daily dose of inspiration. I wish I was clever with a pencil and paintbrush.

Not my dream house but WOW!

{ read more about this house, or buy (!!) it here }

Of course it's in the Hamptons.  Where else!  Still, if I was buying in the hamptons I'd be going for the more traditional Hamptons style house with shingles, plenty of perfectly manicured lawn and a rose garden.

A Pop of Colour

I'm a lover of blue and white and I keep my colour palette fairly limited at home to this combo however seeing these pictures I was reminded how great colour is and the opportunity to use many of the great fabrics I have collected ALL TOGHETHER.  Love it and can't wait to have a room of colour in our new country house.

something's gotta give...

{ some pretty images I've found in my travels. view these & more here }

....and I'm afraid that it's been my blogging.  The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy and a little too stressful for my liking and it feels like there are not enough hours in the day.  Bring on Christmas so we can have a nice little relax and some "time out".....

Looks I love from the latest Lonny!

{ i love everything about this room although let's face it India Hicks never really gets it wrong! }

{ love the fireplace, love the colour palette and the light coming through those divine windows }

{ it's all about the artwork. I could leave the cabinet and whatever that monstrosity is in the left corner }

{ i'm keeping this in the 'ideas file' for what to do on our new mantel piece above the fireplace.  Love the zebra mirror too. }

I've finally made it through the latest online version of Lonny and as usual there was plenty of inspiration (read "'cool ideas to steal).  Here's a few of my fave's. All images from

Now that's what I call a fairytale wedding

{ images found at rubypr blog }

I've never been a massive Kate Moss fan...... until now. I've seen some of the wedding photo's before but came across these today and was totally blown away. It's like an enchanted fairytale. And with Mario Testino capturing the memories from the day it's even more magical. Love, love, love x

It's Black... It's White...

{ heaps more interiors inspiration here }

Love the black and white colour combo - especially with a touch of pink! The 1st picture especially makes me happy. And I guess it's no coincedence that stripes feature heavily in all 3. L*O*V*E.

1st day of spring!

{ image via pinterest }

Someone obviously didn't tell the weather man that it's the first day of spring because it's looking pretty overcast and chilly outside. However, I'm not going to let that dampen my spirits.  Am so excited to welcome Spring..... it feels like it's been a looooong winter and I'm definately ready for some sunshine. Bring it on.
