    I love pink, from the palest barely there shade to fuchsia and everything in between and lots of my clothes and costume jewellery are testament to this. However, I didn’t even think of using pink when decorating my house, because I’ve only ever considered it to be a suitable colour for a little girl’s bedroom.

    This pretty floral bedroom, with its matching feature wall and curtains just shouts Summer!

    The zingy lime green and pretty pink in the wallpaper and curtains is reflected in the quirky cushions and the throw, while the pattern on the crisp, white duvet cover adds even more colour and interest.

    Is it too early to put your Christmas tree up? In a word, yes. Christmas is still 23 days away. But, when I do decorate my living room, I want it to look like this. Just silver and white baubles on the tree and all the presents underneath in matching silver paper. Only a few, very tasteful Christmas cards (sorry, mum), will make it to the mantlepiece, which will mostly be decorated with fresh foliage, flowers and white scented candles.

    My bathroom does not encourage lingering. I have never come home from work and thought that a long, hot soak, in my crisp, white, modern bathroom, would be a nice way to unwind and relax. When I want to relax, I head for the sofa, with a good book.

    However, this glamorous bathroom and dressing area positively begs you to stay a while. The soft

    I fear I’m developing an obsession with birds (no, not that kind…) as they seem to be attracting my attention here, there and everywhere. I even blogged on the very same subject a couple of weeks ago (see Feeling Flighty?). Anyway, I was browsing the blogs on House to Home and came across a post on Country Days that alludes to our feathered friends – a charming piece about a new range of nature-inspired fabrics. In fact, I wish I’d written it myself. Don’t you just love the matching material used for the blinds and cushions, with its peacock images. Which reminds me – I must go and tweet…

    To boldly go…

    by  • November 15, 2013 • Stylish living • 1 Comment

    Even though I love this look, I don’t think I’m brave enough to have it in my home – my flat’s probably bit too bijou to carry it off, anyway. I’ve just recently decorated my sitting room as part of my ongoing home improvement project and I’ve included a beautiful gold and silver abstract feature wallpaper. It’s given the room so much character and interest, I plan to add a bolder design to my bedroom next. The wallpaper pictured here is super striking, and the owner has very wisely limited it to just one wall so that it doesn’t overwhelm. Instead it’s paired with solid blocks of red and blue for an added sense of drama.
