Where did the weekend go? I don’t know about you, however I feel as though this was the fastest weekend that ever was! Lightning Speed! Bamm… Gone!
Lets hope that the week ahead doesn’t follow suit! I am bound for seaside Victoria from Thursday, styling a secret project with Nikole Furnari
. More of that to come later!
Above are a couple of shots of what I was staring at early this morning while in bed, you know when you are laying there trying to figure out whether you want to hop up just yet, pondering maybe you can lay in for just a couple more minutes ….anyway, I thought the cupboard and bits looked rather nice in the light, so I thought I would share it with you. Do you like my new lamp shade?

Here you have it… finally the kitchen is finished…. a few of you have asked me while doing Travelling Wares
at the market whether I use and decorate with similar objects to what I sell.
As you can see the answer is a firm yes! I love combining the old with the new. I definitely like to keep cooking tools at arms reach, so if they are going to be out they need to look beautiful too!
So, we are two rooms down so far, if you missed the bathroom here
Watch out floor boards, we are coming with a sander and gusto!
P.S Below are a couple of before shots.

The Perfect Pantry, bet you want one? Ha, if only it was that easy! A girlfriend of mine recently gave her pantry a mini makeover to much delight! One of the easiest and simplest ways to give a lift to this hard working kitchen nook is to remove unsightly packaged branding from the shelves. Decant your dry goods, spices, rices and co into timeless flip/snap lidded glass storage jars in various sizes. Inexpensive, practical and aesthetically pleasing, these jars will make rummaging through the pantry an organised delight, plus they keep your consumable uber fresh!
Still on the theme of open storage, here are a selection of exquisite storage pieces. How stunning are glass front free standing cupboards? Absolutely timeless! Kitchen, living room or bedroom, you will always find a spot for one! Ideal to hide your little treasures away, yet still being flirty to peek through the pane of glass. I am on the hunt for one of these antique beauties. Will keep you up to date on my progress.
Thought I would share some beautiful rustic images with you of some storage options. I have a love/hate relationship with open shelving. Some days I want it all out- plates, glasses and bowls piled high high high; other days I want it all hidden far far away!
Today is a pile it high kind of day!
