Indigo Blues

Blue and white never looked so fresh!

Dark shades of blue mixed with crisp whites is always so fresh ~
 it never goes out of style.
This season give classic blue and white a modern makeover
by introducing bold prints, hand painted textiles,
painterly stripes and unexpected patterns.
Think ikat, tribal, ombre, folksie and tie-dye
to bring this traditional palette into summer 2016.

Weekend Lunch | Frittata

Easy weekend lunch.

This cheesy bacon and potato frittata
is easy to whip up and makes for a very tasty, light lunch.
It's one of my favourites if we are having friends over for a casual lunch.
I always make a few extra because they taste just as good the next day!

Just Peachy

Celebrate spring with the latest 'on-trend' colour - peach.

There's something very appealing about the color peach — not quite orange, not quite pink, it's soft and feminine without being too girly. In a myriad of shades from the nearly coral to the barely-there, peach adds an element of fresh prettiness to any room or wardrobe.

This Spring, give this pretty shade a modern twist by paring it back with other pastels such as mint and aqua. Keep all the tones dusty or muted so the palette is not too sickly sweet. If you are looking to update your interior mix it back with grey or even a hint of black for a modern, minimal “Scandi-style” look that is so popular right now..

Modern Coastal Living


Chic coastal living.

Loving this bright, light filled, airy space .... and what an outlook!
This open plan living, dining space is a lovely example of what I'd call
modern, coastal elegance.
I really like the natural inspired colour palette in tan, blue, caramel and white ~
it's warm and uplifting.
I have noticed tan has made a real comeback in interiors and
 I think it works particularly well in leather.
I love the vintage look leather occasional chair in the lounge and the retro style dining chairs -
both very different but they tie the two areas together.

Hamptons Style - Chic in Blue

Set sail and take your colour cue from ocean inspired living.

Ultra polished, navy is the prefect colour for creating elegant rooms that are
impeccably tailored and and timelessly clasical.
Mix navy with white and light neutrals
to give a room depth and balance.
Offsetting navy with lighter tones keeps the room fresh and crisp.
Nautical motifs, stripes and checks are all at home in this scheme.
For a stylish East Coast Look think button back upholstery or piping
to add a touch a chic to your nautical interior.
Add a feature wall or ceiling in navy for some added drama.
