Fur for the bedroom

I know it's crazy, I live in a hot and humid climate but I can't help but think about a fur throw for the bed. Maybe it's because it's so hot outside, I have the cold air conditioner blasting inside.
I love the look, the feel and the cosy aspect of them.
So chic....








I do love it but I think I'd need to be in a colder climate to have one on my bed!

I was chatting with a friend yesterday about the world today of social media. 
Whether it's for personal or professional use, there are so many ways to keep in touch with people. 
And we are all connected to it in some form or another.

I definitely like to engage in a few different types of social media. So far, I have Facebook for my personal use (I don't have one for the blog yet), I write two blogs as a place to share what I love and inspires me plus to meet like minded people out there. I don't do twitter though, I just can't wrap  my head around it for some reason. But my latest obsession past time is Instagram.

I've had an Instagram account for sometime now and posted a few pics here and there privately but I was bored one night and started flicking through it again - hello the beginning of another love!

So many great images out there, it's like going to your own personal art gallery full of random photo's.

If you're interested follow me on Instagram, it's simply myfirstlittleplace.

Do you enjoy and/or use Instagram? 
Please tell me the name of your profile so I can follow along.

Moroccan Pouffe

I've been thinking about getting a Morrocan Pouffe for my living area for quite sometime now, but something has always held me back. But I just don't know what it is!

They suit a wide variety of design styles and are so practical as little side tables or of course to put your feet up on as you sit with your laptop on your lap blogging away (right?)






For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now would know that my living space is white, yellow with touches of grey and silver. 
Louise at Table Tonic has every colour under the sun to choose from, 
so I have narrowed my choices down IF I go ahead and get one they would be ...

I didn't put the white as I already have a lot of white going on so I'm thinking of some contrast.

They're only $199, not a huge dent in the budget but still it has to be a carefully considered decision!

I would love to hear which colour you think I should go for or if you have another opinion in colour (or even style) I would definitely appreciate any and/or all of your feedback.

Thanks !

A home in London

This 5 story home in London is designed by the firm Lawson Robb really caught my eye this week.

Whilst the living area has a sophisticated look to it, the modular sofa adds a comfortable feel to it.

I love this kitchen but I would remove the pots and pans above, I'm not a fan of that look.

This is, for me an ideal media room. Traditionally media rooms are dark just like movie cinemas.
But I like that this is light and as there are no windows, I'm sure once the lights are dimmed it would be 
nice and dark in there. I absolutely love the seating, now that is where I want to curl up and watch a movie.

The home comes with a bar and a bespoke wine cellar.

Just one of the bedrooms. It feels very show home to me but I love the masculine yet soft feel to it.

So glamorous.

 The entire lower level is dedicated to a wellness centre, a tranquil space including a jacuzzi, rain shower, 
lounge chairs, techno gym, steam room, sauna and a plunge pool! 

Perfect for sitting out on a summer's night with friends.

Room with a view ...

I dream of having a bedroom that has beautiful french doors
 that open to a balcony or a private little court yard.
