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.
I hope by taking a short tour of my home you get some ideas for your place.
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.
Grab a coffee and take a short tour.
When you think WALLS, think art!
...black 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.
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.
Every corner somehow has a purpose.
My Morrocan corner.
The other side of the lounge. Taken as the sunset gets darker and darker, such a cosy time of the evening!
And today we will have pink linen
For the Grandies.
The best design is simplicity
Sometimes you need to stand out. Black and white, classic and eye catching.
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!!
Always a pile of books to read.
Leave some spaces empty.
Always time for coffee outside.
And when the day is over no place like the ocean to unwind and watch a glorious sunset.
