Letters, numbers, stencils, old signs, re-purposing old boxes... it can be as simple as an old wooden cheese box.

All in the detail

Rich texture and pattern is a driving passion especially outside and entertaining


Nesting and blending to create emphasis: fabric, photography and prints amid a theme

Strip it back

Loving this little cupboard I picked up in the hard rubbish.  Just stripping it back has restored its charm.

Butterfly armchair

 Love this print.  If you look at the post on Simplicity of Black  you can see the armchair.

Floor Decal

 This floor design is incredible.  The power of its size in a room would be breathtaking.

Textile inspriation

Fabric: texture, colour, patterns, stripes. I am addicted to beautiful textiles and breaking rules with them...

Summer garden

My favorite place to run away to and hide

Intensity of Red

An old piece from the 1920's. I have refurbished it with this deep, stunning red, also accentuating it with a deep brown stain.  Without the stain the red washes out the contours of the relief of the from patterns.  This is very effective and common with Asian pieces.

Simplicity of Black

Both pieces were quite bland, the lick of black accentuates the decor
