I need this view!!! Breakfast outside staring at the rolling waves (swoon)
I'm not going to lie I'm in desperate need of a sunshine holiday, I've not been away since February of last year & my week off last week with only days out planned & bad weather have not helped my yearning of a beach & hot sun. The school holidays have pretty much been a washout & I'm feeling I've missed summer entirely. Don't get me wrong I love autumn but I'm just not ready for it yet. I find myself on Pinterest looking at summer themed interiors & outdoor living. I've not sat outside enjoying some relaxation in the garden, no alfresco dining, not even a BBQ. This feels tragic. Time for summer inspiration me thinks....
I love a house with a bit of colour & quirky items & this home certainly fits the bill, its got a real sense of fun about it. Exactly my kind of style. I'm in love with the open kitchen breakfast room with plenty of comfortable seating. I also love the way the lounge has cleverly broken up separate seating areas
Turning a summer house into a play house certainly keeps the mess out of the house. Imagine the fun kids can have with their very own club house/hide out/ mini home...whatever their imagination wants to make it. Hours of endless fun.
But what about a space for mum?
This would certainly be my option .....
I totally adore this girls bedroom it's so pretty. I've always loved a four poster bed & the cute floral voile works beautifully. Its a soft & dreamy room but very subtle. I love the pale neutral tones here.
Well today I take you on a little trip to The Jan Cavelle Furniture Company where we take a sneaky peek around the factory to see what goes on in the process of making a piece of furniture. Jan's beautiful creations go through a process over several days of being built & spayed by dedicated craftmen, lets go see
