When you craft and shape your home it becomes a safe haven for you and your family and friends. Art becomes a special part of your surroundings and a part of you.

Each room becomes an expression of who you are, by the way, don't ever be ashamed of who you are and the way you express yourself.


Right now our home is an old seventies, spanish style cottage.

Over the years we have built two big and beautiful homes from scratch.

However this little old house has given me more joy and happiness than I could have imagined.

It's about finding out what suits you and your personality.


This place needs a lot of work so I have only photographed the places that look OK!!

But I will keep posting photos of our home, as we do our renovations over the next years.


Coffee outside



Corner of house



Wendy Philip black and white 

When you think WALLS, think art! and whites, dreamy cloudy images, cool beachside scenes and dark misty forests, all great ways of adorning your bare walls.

 Beautiful pictures will bring calm, peace and happiness to the rooms you love and the place you call home.

Bike in the shadows

 At at certain time of the year, for only about a fortnight the sun casts a beautiful shadow on the wall through our front arch.

You will find me photographing many different angles and placing various items around this sunny golden shadow....pots, chairs and bikes, plants.

Sometimes you need to stand out. Black and white, classic and eye catching.

Pot from Morroco


Lamp aurore

  Every item tells a story, we call this light..."Lamp Aurore."

The reason for that is, whilst in France many years ago, we tried to buy a lamp and the lady behind the counter kept repeating .."Lamp Aurore."

We had no idea what she was talking about. And she had no idea what we were talking about!!


My old tray framed

 Always a pile of books to read.
