Ocean Shades












My beach house is filled with these watery shades.
They are so easy to decorate with - soft and muted,
they are easy to live with an create a sense of calm and tranquility.
It's easy to mix and match colours if you keep all the tones similar.
Seafoam, indigo, green, turquoise and aqua
all look incredible layered or grouped together as vignettes.

The Exotic Middle East





Jade Resort Report

Boho Beach Chic
 

My brother and his family have been living in Dubai for the past few years.
They live in a lovely pink villa on The Palm with a private beach.
I really should take advantage of all of this and go pay him a visit.
Everone keeps telling how amazing it is.
The shopping, the souks, the luxury hotels, the desert spas and the camel rides.
There's so much to do there, I'm sure I would have a ball ~
especially with a local to show me around!
Just seeing these pics makes me feel totally inspired about jumping on a plane.

A Rustic Weekender












Tranquil lakeside retreat

This quaint 1940s cottage belongs to famous hair guru John Frieda. He's been keeping the frizz out of my hair for years! This cute and charming cottage has been designed by decorator Sharon Simonaire who transformed it in a light-filled retreat that’s as comfortable as it is sophisticated. The timber lined panelling, natural colour palette and furniture selection would be just at home in a vintage style beach cottage as they are in this beautiful lakeside setting. I love the bright and cosy atmosphere that has been created. The fabulous outdoor space is perfect for enjoying the stunning views and looks like a very peaceful place to unwind on the weekends.

Cool White & Tangerine










Tangerine Dream


Be inspired by exotic destinations and add a pop of tropical colour to your wardrobe this summer. Pack your next travel bag with a flirty cocktail dress in orange, crisp white swimwear to show off your tan and a tangerine bikini for a splash of colour around the pool. Also don't forget when taking holiday snaps your camera loves bright colours - they really make your photos come alive!

Strawberry Punch





 


 


Homemade Strawberry Punch

I have a little strawberry patch in my garden
that produces the sweetest, most perfect strawberries.
They are at their best when they are simply picked
and eaten fresh, straight from the garden.
If I have some leftovers then I'm always trying out new recipes ~
strawberry punch, strawberry jam, 
fruit tartlets and homemade strawberry ice-cream 
are a few of my favourites.
