Christmas lights

I saw this in an online mag recently.  What a cool idea and looks very expensive for something that might be made for reasonably cheap too...wire and ferry lights? Hmmm...

White tiles

My husband and I are FINALLY going to do the kitchen and bathroom, and I am SO excited. I have a really clear idea of what I want, so I do feel a little sorry for the trades people who will have to put up with me. One thing for sure, I will be using white rectangular tiles (subway tiles) with grey grout in both the kitchen and bathroom to marry the two rooms. Here are some images I'm using for inspiration:

Guest Bedroom

Me and my design assistant (my husband) have been very busy the last few days decorating the guest bedroom. My little sister is coming to stay with us for a couple of months and so we wanted to get it finished in time for her arrival today.  There are still a few finishing touches, but all in all I am happy with how it is coming together.

This was the room before:

This is the room after:

What we did: We measured stripes on the feature wall and used masking tape to line up the spaces.  We painted the old dresser red which used to be a glossy brown and replaced the handles with little knobs we bought in the South of France earlier this year.  I painted the old mirror to match the colour of the stripes on the wall. The clip boards and little clock are from Typo and the prints were bought a few months ago on sale on Onceit.  The Keep Britain Tiday poster was bought at the Tate Modern earlier this year. The GB flag cushions are from Redcurrent. We also replaced the old glass wall light with a more contemporary red fabric shade.
