While recharging the batteries last week with a week at the beach, I had the luxury of both starting a new book and devouring as many magazines as I could get my hands on. Fuelled with inspiration and ideas to share, I was then promptly stopped in my tracks … technical problems … the blog was clearly not going to happen from up there. After my initial melt down, I came to the conclusion that it was probably a good thing and maybe I was meant to actually have a holiday.
Anyhow, here I am in my new laid back state of mind … sharing with you some of what caught my eye as I perused. The Como Hotel in Melbourne (boutique hotel in Sth Yarra)has been slowly and quietly, with doors still open, refurbishing. Very much of the moment, this unusual combination of colours is elegant and very clever. I have always loved chocolate brown with duck egg blue and aubergine … but oh that punch of citrus is gorgeous !!
Pure indulgence !!
PS. I think there is something quite luxurious about these deeply buttoned ottomans.
The simplicity of this bathroom is very appealing. I am loving the neutral tones and finishes…..classic and elegant.
Let the accessories tell the story and create the feel and mood…..what ever that may be. Bring in texture, warmth and contrast.
Natural materials have a natural warmth and texture and require little else. They provide their own contrast and variation within the material itself.
Slick and contemporary or rustic and earthy …. neutral works best.
The White Company London stocks the most fabulous range of everything one needs for the bathroom….online.
