Water Garden

with 3 comments

 

A new round of The Boardwalk Event has just started and it runs for a month so there’s plenty of time to wander around and check out all the great products.

This round Designer, Victor Newchurch, has made us the, “Moment of Zen Set” which includes a picture called, “Scenes from The Tale of Genji”. This turns out to refer to an 11th century masterpiece often called the world’s first novel and it’s about the art of seduction. Very little is alluded to in a gross way but things are suggested gently… what counts is the art and the poetry. It’s rather fascinating on the whole and if you’re interested in this period of history,  there’s a short article here.

In view of all this, I decided to make a water garden which can be a rather poetic and sensual place to experience on a sultry evening with a bottle of wine and a good book when the kids have been packed off to bed!

Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products used in the scene today:-

Sponsors:- ::NEWCHURCH::, Storax Tree, EED

Save all your kisses for me

with 4 comments

Click on the picture for a larger version!

The title today comes from a  song by Brotherhood of Man and it was a Eurovision Song Contest winner years ago.  It talks about don’t cry when I leave, save all your kisses for me, and it turns out to be a 3 year old the song is referring to.  So cute!  I think that’s one of the best sorts of love, that between a parent and their child.  Valentine’s day can be good or bad, depending on what happens to you, or rather doesn’t.  Here’s some beautiful virtual goods you can use on that day for your loved one or your intended recipient.

Fireside Memories

with 2 comments

 

Winter has set in where we live, and I find there’s nothing better for cheering up a grey, freezing cold day than to lounge in front of a blazing fire.  It also has the best heat output anywhere, including oil fired radiators and ambient heaters!  You can sit and watch a fire for its living elements and never be bored, in fact it will help clear out upsetting emotional states and give you comfort.

There’s a lot of Scandi style furniture and décor around at the moment and it’s a style that’s perfect for winter decorating.  It can be successfully combined with other styles, as I’ve done in the scene above.  It’s a beautiful, minimalist style that was among the first design styles to promote simplistic ways of living when it emerged during the 1930s within the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  It became known as “Scandinavian design” which originated from a design show that toured the USA and Canada between 1954 and 1957.  The style emphasizes clean lines and simple designs that are inspired by nature and the Nordic climate. This results in spaces that are suffused with light, airiness, serenity and a feeling of oneness with nature.  Scandi style promotes beautiful designs and quality, with sustainable products that are affordable and easily accessible to people in all strata’s of society, and that makes it an egalitarian choice for today.

Gentleman’s Autumn Retreat

with 8 comments

The cosiness of the autumn season can’t be denied, especially if you make a fireside nook. Autumnal colours are particularly pleasing, creating a warm palette for the eyes and easing the soul into a temporary but welcome security before the winter season freezes everything over!  It’s no wonder that Keats coined it, “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”.

*~*~*

The scene was created in part of the Franklin log cabin by Galland Homes.  Here’s a slide show as I walked around this beautiful building… inside and outside… more info below.

Making an Entrance

with 8 comments

 

My initial inspiration for this picture was Fancy Decor’s “Nannerl Set” – an entrance hall set that is both elegant and practical. I’m very much in favour of such sets as they are the first thing a visitor to your home will see, and as a result they are quite important to get right and strike a good atmosphere with.

There’s quite a lot of Spanish furniture and décor around right now, not least because The Liaison Collaborative has a Hacienda round!  I’ve matched up some of these pieces from various designers – I really love the splashes of joyful, bright colour which are a Spanish trademark.  If you ever visit Barcelona and see the work of architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet you’ll see what I mean on a grand scale.
