Black and white is a powerful combination but how much is too much and how can it be softened to create a beautiful interior space...

The Perfect Home Office/Study 'Nook'

Lombard

I am finally back after a long Christmas/New Year break from the blog and I've have had a pretty lazy holiday, apart from Christmas day where I had 11 for lunch but it was all fun. I have however, been working on re-landscaping my tiny back garden and thinking about re-locating my old office into my new studio, in saying that I don't want it to become an entire office, I was thinking more a small built in area or a floating desk. Office nooks are becoming popular and with the smaller home builds architects and interior designers are becoming very clever at creating these perfectly formed and aesthetically pleasing spaces.

A Christmas House Tour


I love to peek inside the homes of other bloggers, especially when they are decked out for the holidays, these talented people may not be trained interior designers, however, they are just as creative. Blogger Susan from Saw Nail & Paint has the most delightful cottage style house beautifully decked out for the holiday season.

My Christmas decorations are usually out in full force by now but due to a recent health scare in the family, I am totally unprepared for Christmas and haven't done a thing. Everything is ok now 'health-wise', so I have been madly perusing the web for some ideas for this year. Some are traditional, others a little bit different, I hope you enjoy the mix.

Beyond this Facade - Lies a Garden Guest House

Stockbridge home

Beyond the facade of this Stockbridge townhouse, lies a charming, garden, guest cottage, I currently have an obsession with garden buildings after completing a garden studio of my own. Whether it's a guest cottage, an artist retreat, pool shed or "she/he shed" scenario, I believe everyone can benefit of such a space.
