My Work - Cottage Kitchen

In the same house with the cute bathroom i showed you last week, we also re-did the kitchen!
We knocked a wall out between the existing kitchen (think coloured 1970's laminate) 
& a sitting room (that was dark red & very gloomy) to open it up to one big space & it came up a treat!
Here are a few shots i took before the client moved in (hence no fridge!)

JK Palace Capri

Firstly; Ikat armchairs i need you in my life!

And now a few other shots from the divine JK Palace Hotel, Capri....

We visited capri last year on our honeymoon.
We took a day trip in a little wooden boat from Positano which was great fun!
A lot of people & boat watching to be had, along with snorkelling & soaking up the sun on the way.
Once you are there, be sure to visit the amazing gardens & perfumery right at the top of the island.

My Work - Cottage Bathroom

Remember way back here when i showed you the before shot for a bathroom i was working on?
It just occurred to me i never showed you the 'After!'

Heres another look at the 'Before' {during demolition, but you get the idea!}

Our new place has a huge balcony thats north facing! Yay for plants that will get sun!

Would love some of these Muuto Dots {replica ones are fine!}

Bathroom/Wedding Robe Love

I might be a bit biased as the thing that initially drew me to this image was the robe on the wall!
It's the Plum Pretty Sugar one i {and my bridesmaids & mums} wore to get ready on our wedding day!
Loving the Muuto Dots on the wall in there - love how they can be used as hooks or as pure decoration!
Also a great example of how you can adapt furniture pieces to use as a vanity in the bathroom. 

Heres me & one of my girls in our robes...

and some other random good looking bridal party in theirs!

Ashton & Harper

I love Instagram & the wonderful people you can discover!
I started following Ashton & Harper last year & loved her style & the gorgeous print business she launched at the end of 2013. 

I got the biggest surprise after making a joke on a picture of her 'chic' print that she should add 'once daily' to it...
I checked my post box one day to find a beautiful custom gold foil 'once daily chic' print! 
Actually, I almost cried in the post office i thought it was so thoughtful!

I love supporting other women who are working for themselves & also those who practice random acts of kindness! :) 
Check out some of Ashton & Harpers gorgeous prints below (including my very special custom one!) 
And how cool is the confetti that came in the envelope with it!

Beaded Chandelier

You know when theres something you just HAVE to have?
For me its been a beaded chandelier - and I've been lusting after one for years!
I added one to a little story board i made for our new place...I thought it looked awesome...
 The husband pointed at said chandelier & said, and i quote, 'What the hell is that thing'? Not really the response i was after!
I just need to find the perfect place for one & i will win him over eventually!

For the 'real deal' you must check out Mud Studio

Wednesday Wisdom

I had my wisdom teeth out yesterday {in the chair!} & surprisingly am feeling ok.
Im sitting here at my computer with an ice pack that literally straps around your head which is quite amusing 
{would love to post a photo but not sure i want that on the web for all eternity ;)
The fact that I'm up to my eyeballs in panadeine forte perhaps means i found this little wisdom funnier than it may actually be! 
But i agree - always be a unicorn....or Beyonce!
