The Colour of Couture

I suppose you wouldn't expect Matthew Williamson's home to be any less colourful but......does a fashion designer's home influence their collection or vice versa?

Oh my...

...what is the collective noun for dreamy leather (Hermes or other) luggage anyway...?

Bedroom Envy II

The best thing about this bedroom could be the juxtoposition of architectural details with contemporary furnishings; the awesome screen behind the bed; the tumbling, oversized, white silk curtains; the elegant, retro furniture; or just that it looks so clean and fresh you almost don't even notice that the walls are painted blue and not white......all these things could be the best thing about this bedroom but the best thing about this bedroom is actually the fact that you get this house with it...If you like this you should see the living room and the rest of this Salzberg house by Robert Couturier & Associates

Sebastian's 1st Poster

We love Belle & Sebastian...
It is, however, a happy coincidence that our son shares half the band's name, and no, if we have a 2nd and it's a girl, she won't be named Belle. Whilst looking for artwork for his room, I thought, why not make sure he can spell his name as soon as possible by plastering it on his wall, so...I found this and we love it! Can't wait to get it back from the framers...The colour is even prettier in real life, and it has that chalky, hand printed finish that you can't beat. As ever, I'm drawn to these photographs of the making process. I'd love to do my own screen printing one looks deliciously messy...and oh so satisfying.

So...I had a little blog hiatus. For around nine months I didn't feel too inspired in the way of blogging so I thought it best to take a break.
In the meantime, I grew a baby...and this, blogworld, is him...

Many thanks to those who stuck around, apologies to those who have abandoned and hello to those who are new. I promise not to become a mummy blogger and continue, as much as possible, in the same ilk as before, although I can't promise a completely baby free blog from here on in...x
