Reading over this post I realise I might have come over a little strong when it comes to my comment on some of the new homes built in New Zealand. I refer not to private, architecturally designed homes but those built by speculators to make a quick dollar. I also realise that not everyone can afford to have an architecturally designed home, however, I am sure that even with a modest budget, some re-cycled materials could be included to add charm and character to the lower end market. In saying this, the home I am sharing today is definitely the high end of the market but if you are thinking of building a new home that feels like it has stood the test of time, I hope you can draw some inspiration from it.

I spend hours looking at beautiful interiors, I peruse places like Houzz or Pinterest or bring stacks of magazines and books home from the library. I am not always drawn to a particular style, sometimes it's a lovely vignette, artwork or simply a cushion that catches my eye. It could be a texture, colour or pattern, a piece of furniture, or maybe it is an entire space. I have decided therefore, to create a weekly post discussing some of these inspiring images with my readers, so read on to find out what I love about this week's gorgeous selection of interiors...

Since discovering Annie Sloan's range of decorative paints, I have been crazy about her Chalk Paint™ and the amazing things you can do with it. Recently I was invited to help spread the word that Annie is giving everyone a chance to show off their creative wares using Chalk Paint™, along with a chance to win $100 of Annie Sloan prizes... Yay!
