Some rather big things have been happening around here lately; one of the MOST exciting things would have to be being featured in my most loved interiors magazine Elle Decoration UK and being named ‘A Modern Day Martha Stewart’. To be featured in the pages of this magazine has filled me with so much joy and such an incredible sense of achievement… then to be named ‘A Modern Day Martha’… well, I have no words…. Martha has given so much of herself and shared her lifestyle over the years to help us all create a better understanding of what a sense of home is.
When I was renting and long before such image sharing websites such as pinterest was even thought up, I would save up my money
it’s not a cheap magazine in Australia, for the latest air freight copy of Elle Decoration, straight off the hot London presses…. I would hightail it across a few suburbs to the ‘larger / posher‘ newsagent who carried such worldly titles…. I would come back home, turn the radio off and sit in silence in my dining room, being careful not to crease the cover…. I would inhale the London air which I convinced myself was trapped in the pages of the magazine and I would be transported…. I would read the print off the pages, absorbing the high calibre articles and seeing for the first time interior photographs of far off places; putting little pieces of paper in the pages, bookmarking my favourites, dreaming of one day being able to have a house to call home and to be able to decorate it and make it mine.
I feel so privileged and grateful to be able to share what I do here on the blog and also in the other aspects of my business; I just wanted to say a very big and heartfelt thank you to all of you who come by to visit the blog and who I hope leave with something too.
