blue colour trend 2013


How stunnng is this room!

The pops of royal blue are a highlight for me

and can you see that this royal blue 

is much warmer than the cooler grey blues of late?

 Colour contrast …

paired with different natural textures

of wood, metal & wool

make for an exciting Design!



Here is another room

accessorisd with blue

but the warmer blues in the first pic have red in them …

they’re new, on trend …

and very, very striking!



Not everyone can afford to change their interior

with each new trend 

so if you love blue …

keep in mind

that these new warmer blues

can be introduced in the way of accessories …

 bottle and flowers …

 or just like in this industrial setting ….

think also cushions, rugs

vases, chairs & lamps.

Happy Easter!

Hello there dear friends,

How are you today?



 Easter is almost apon us

and I always find this time of year exciting…

 mostly because of the chocolate!

but also because it’s about

spending quality time with family and friends

enjoying yummy chocolate eggs with my children

(sorry scales!)


and drinking endless cups of tea.



It’s about reading lovely magazines’s

 and ignoring the clock,

 taking long walks

and admiring the beauty

 of mother nature.




Happy Easter to you!

I wish you much laughter, joy and happiness

at Easter time

please stay safe,

and enjoy… 



 (photography & styling by me)


p.s. I have a little saying

 when it comes to easter eggs…

it’s always the first egg

the very first bite,

the first snap through the egg,

the first delicious taste

of the chocolate slowly melting away 

  thrilling the tastebuds and the senses. 

No other is quite like it.



pink….. fuchsia

Hello friends,

Today’s fuchsia colour theme & photography

 is dedicated to Japan…



 with the hope….



that spring will arrive there soon….



with all it’s glorious warm sunshine….



and make life a little easier.
