Indoor Greenery





Be inspired by nature and fill your home with indoor plants and fresh flowers

Nothing makes me happier than filling my home with fresh flowers. But right now I have loving the trend of decorating with indoor plants. Keep it simple and stylish. I love the idea of simple white pots, glass planters or cane baskets for large, oversized plants like palms and figs. There is a huge craze for succulents with is perfect for me because I'm not great in the watering department so succulents are very forgiving if you forget to water them! 

Here are some stylish ideas for decorating with plants.

Evening Light

These images beautifully capture my favourite time of the day ~
about 5 o'clock as the sun sinks low into the sky
and bathes the world in a beautiful golden glow.

Happy weekend!

Fun In The Sun


Weekend Pleasures

Sunny, beach days are slipping away - it's getting darker earlier and crisper in the mornings. The holiday makers have departed our pretty coastal town leaving the locals in peace and quiet for the autumn and winter months. It's this time of the year that I am desperate to make my summer last as long as possible so I make the most of every sunny day. Today promises to be a perfect beach day so the kids and I will arm ourselves with beach towels, beach bags, sunscreen and magazines and head to the beach for an afternoon of fun in the sun. We'll come back sandy and salty with sun kissed skin feeling very pleased with ourselves!

Seaside Glamour

Add a little seaside glamour to your beach house 
with chic accessories and stylish details.
For me, it's all about the details.
It's the little things that give a home character and life.
Hurricane lamps, fragrant candles, beautiful coastal books, seaside prints,
fresh flowers, seashells, coral and nautical accents 
will all add a sense of style and personality to your home.

Cool Summer Treats



One of the things I love about summer is indulging in cool icy treats.

Nothing beats an icy pole, walking along the beach on a hot summer's day
or a fruit smoothie for an afternoon snack.

I am also a huge fan of homemade ice-cream
made with piles of fresh fruit.

An Eclectic Mix






This house in Carpinteria (California) not only has stunning views over the ocean
but it has an eclectic mix of hand crafted furniture, tribal artifacts
and traditional African pieces.
All of this combined with modern architecture
creates a truly individual and unique coastal retreat.
Designed by Hallberg-Wiseley Designers
