Serene Corner

with 2 comments

 

More from The Boardwalk designers today, and I’ve made a cosy corner that is also quite restful. It’s really interesting to see what sort of effect you can get from décor without the warmth of a fireplace. There are tonal colours from both the cold and warm palette but they all blend in well as they are not really strong. Background colours of soft grey and warm wood lend themselves to bronze accessories.

Grandma’s Kitchen

with 7 comments

 

It’s no secret, I loves me some vintage furniture! I’m featuring pieces from the new exclusively Home & Garden Event, Blueprint. That’s amongst other gorgeous products from clever Designers.

I started off with kitchen units by The Jewel Garden and went from there. They had a choice of 3 pastel fridge/cooker combos and I really liked the blue. Never mind about my Gran, this was very like my Mum’s kitchen – bless her! She loved the 1950s style and kept quite a few of her RL designer pieces which nowadays can command good money for such mid-century finery.
