A couple of weeks back, I posted about our visit to the distillery Archie Rose, read about it here.
It got me thinking about my bar at home. Now we were the lucky recipients of a Parker drinks trolley, all thanks to the brilliant Tony, a passionate mid century furniture restorer. We bought an amazing Parker dining table and chairs from him, see it in my post here, and he was kind enough to chuck in the drinks trolley for free.
When creating your perfect home, it can seem like the list of tasks and jobs to get there, can seem never ending.
At times it can feel like you are never going to reach the finishing line. If you are like me, you can lose focus and get sidetracked trying to wrong on too many spaces at one time.
I know, as I have had those times when I have smashed through a list of chores and jobs at home. Thinking okay, what’s next, let’s just get it done and then I can sit back and relax and enjoy what I have made.
Whilst the Northern hemisphere is looking to rug up and get cozy for the on coming winter season, us lucky peeps in the south are getting ready for the summer. Whether that be burning the calories at the gym to get the beach body going or shopping for the ultimate summer wardrobe.
My mind turns to the all important outdoor space. Now our apartment is not blessed with a massive outdoor space, it is a good size compared to some in Sydney, we have a wicker two seater and armchairs and a modest number of pots. So it is cozy and functional. And on those hot summer evenings it can be the perfect spot to watch the sun go down (west facing) with a cold beverage or two!!
When I was growing up in England, wallpaper was the norm. We had it in every room in our house.
In the bedroom I shared with my sister, we had the popular (at the time anyway) embossed type which you could then paint your choice of colour. Being girls we had it pink, obviously!!!!
In our living room we have the chipped type, so it had little chips of wood embossed into it, again so you could just paint it your choice of colour. My sister and I used to like to pick the bits of wood out.
Have you ever had that feeling when you have bought something for your home, that didn’t come with an ‘Um and Ar” moment beforehand, but did come with a gut feeling that it was just the right thing to buy, regardless of the cost?
You know that time, when you have got it home and you just can’t help but smile at it because it makes you happy to own it???
I do love finding things that are a little bit different. while scouring the internet for products I find that quite a lot of stores are stocking the same things and I mean same, not even just similar.
So imagine my delight at finding Safari Fusion. Not a bit of rose gold, copper or marble to be seen. 😉 (not that I am not partial to some of these!!!)
