History in the making

So I don't think there will be a blog out there this weekend that won't post about the royal wedding. How can we not, it is truly a beautiful part of history being made.

How lovely was it? How gorgeous did Kate Catherine look? How amazingly stunning was her dress? And most importantly how happy did they look?

These are some of my favourite photo's from the wedding.

Her dress was absolutely beautiful, designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. It is the perfect combination of tradition and modernity. Ivory satin bodice (very symbollic of McQueens work) overlayed by hand-cut English lace and Fench Chantilly lace. An interesting fact, the workers of the lace on the dress washed their hands every 30 minutes to keep the lace and threads in pristine condition! Only for a duchess....

Her bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth.

Her sister, Pippa's dress was also designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. Lovely.


Leaving Clarence House to travel to Buckingham Palace for post wedding celebrations. This dress also designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

I love their getaway in the Aston Martin Volante.

What a gorgeous couple and I wish them all the happiness.

A Rental Success

As we know I'm making the move from own own little place into a rental. This sets me new challenges as what I can do is fairly limited, I don't have the freedom to paint the colours I want or change the fixtures and fittings. But today I came across this great home featured on Apartment Therapy this week.

Corina rents her house in LA and with her influence of old hollywood glamour and Kelly Wearstler, she has truly made this rental into her own abode.

 I'm truly inspired that I will be able to make my rental my home

Love a Nate Room...

So what do I love about this gorgeous room by the one and only Nate Berkus? 

Lots actually, let’s see...

The high ceiling with that amazing light
I love how Nate quite often frames a window with bookcases or built ins
Gold – tufted – velvet!
Different sitting areas
Subtle striped floor with a beautiful Moroccan rug

Shall I keep going......?
