Dream Workspace

One day when I have my own business these are the perfect workspaces that I would love to have.

These are the offices of the brilliant website devoted to all things extremely fashionable -
Normally I would put some words to the images about what I love,
but these pictures need no words, I love it all ...

Let's Keep It Simple

A room doesn't need to be over dressed! Sometimes keeping it simple in style and colour works so well and can still be really comfortable. And it doesn't have to mean modern minamlism either. But just make sure it doesn't look nor feel like a display home! Still put in some bits and pieces that are you.

 I love this first one! The prints on the wall are fab and inject the life into the room. The sofa is simple in shape and neutral in colour with complimentary cushionsand it works well with the similar lines of the coffee table but it's adding some more tone to the space. I'd probably pile with a few more books, but that's just me.

This room is still really simple in style, the furniture and colours aren't fighting with each other. But the space has been personalised with the bookcase. Again I would have more books on the bookcase though instead of knick knacks. Looks like a nice relaxing place to be with friends, chilling out after a nice lunch!

 So sleek. All the pieces work well together and make quite an impact even though there isn't many pieces shown. Simple sofa with a good amount of cushions. Oh and I eye spy an Hermes blanket (still on my wishlist!). Coffee table is also simple and holding a good amount of books. And of course finshed off by the beautiful black and white horse images. I think I'd get along well with the owners of this room.

A little bit more of a masculine feel and a bit of a vintage look. The sofa, even in the black leather is a good design. The painting stands out for me. I imagine this room at night,  sitting chatting with friends with some red wine.

Wedded Bliss Pt 2

What a wonderful weekend I have had. Not only was it great to spend time with friends, enjoy good company, drink and food but of course we attended the wedding of a gorgeous friend.

Her wedding was just beautiful. It was elegant and sophisticated with lots of lovely details.

 The lighting in the venue was gorgeous. They set the ambience of the room but what was also great was that every photo that was taken at the wedding had this beautiful lighting as it's backdrop.

 The cake not only looked so beautiful, simply elegant but tasted divine!


 I remember not too long after she got engaged, Cheryl and I had a conversation about what else but the chairs she wanted for her reception. A girl after my own heart she has impeccable style - even with chairs! 
I was so proud of her that the chairs was one of the first decisions she made for her wedding! 
Tiffany chairs were the perfect choice, they looked so pretty.

Of course the bride looked beautiful ....

Have you heard of the photopod? Well it's like your more sophisticated version of the photo booth. A fantastic idea for a wedding. It allowing guests to go in an take various photo's for the bride and groom and they pictures get stuck into an album straight away that they can take away with them at the end of the night. It is also uploaded on their website so the guests can download their pics to remember the night also.

Thank you and congratulations Cheryl and Sang on a beautiful wedding.

I wish you both all the happiness in the world
