As the nights appear to go on forever, each day we hurry home hoping to catch daylight. We might consider taking our cue from the Scandinavians who use clean silhouettes and lighter tones to combat the darkness. Anyone who reads my blog will know I have a very soft spot for interiors – a clear favourite at the moment is M&S whose designs for the home get more … Continue reading SCANDINAVIAN STYLE AT M&S

[Baby It’s Cold Outside]

Winter is probably my least favorite season. I’ve been stuck inside so many times when the snow really comes down, I’ve been rained on so much that every bit of me is soaked and I’ve been so cold before I’ve slept in my heaviest knits. Winter fun is limiting…very very limiting. The way I see it, winter fun is limited to two scenarios: 1) You’re inside, … Continue reading [Baby It’s Cold Outside]

[Sweater Weather]

The temperatures have dropped, there is a real chill in the air now. It’s time to finally pull the jumpers out of the wardrobe.  I love how everything comes alive in the spring but autumn is definitely the best season. It’s also nice not to be sweating the minute you step out the door and the good hair weather makes every woman happy, and probably a … Continue reading [Sweater Weather]

It seems that animal skulls have risen above the popular notion they are only proper for display in a man cave or ski lodge. I am generally … Continue reading [Antler over ‘ere]

[Cheap Decorating Ideas]

Unless you’ve mastered the art of dumpster diving, Craigslist hunting, or flea-market bargaining, decorating your home can cost a pretty penny. That custom-cut, teak coffee table? Not in our budget. That retro Eames chair? If only we won the lotto. But just like our outfit choices, our home is another opportunity for self-expression — and, luckily, it doesn’t have to cost a chair arm and a leg. … Continue reading [Cheap Decorating Ideas]

[Home Spun Charm]

These intricate household objects were created by the very talented Jennifer Collier using paper – amazing hey?! The paper is bonded, waxed, trapped and stitched to produce amazing recognisable objects such as camera, shoes, dresses and more. I love that she finds inspiration from maps, postcards and random clippings – I’m similar in that way, but just no way as creative or talented. “I tend … Continue reading [Home Spun Charm]
