Christmas baking

It just doesn't feel like Christmas until you you some baking. That's the plan for me this week with the kids. Hope you enjoy some time in the kitchen too! Hayley

Only One More Week...

My youngest son was quick to remind me this morning that there is only one week until Christmas! Well that means I have a lot of work to do...I haven't started my usual cooking and as for wrapping presents, I'm hoping these gorgeous ribbons will inspire me to get started! Hope you are all enjoying this time of year as much as we are - happy weekend all!

Weekend at Last!

I couldn't be happier that the weekend is here! Today I have dragged my kids from pillar to post (yes even clients homes) and I feel totally exhausted!!! Yay for school holidays! This pool looks so inviting after an incredibly hot day! I'm loving the random paving around the pool which I'm about to get done around my pool - finally! Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! Tracey xx

Light & Bright!

I'm feeling inspired by all the light in the following images! White is such a gorgeous backdrop to show off the gorgeous furniture and accessories. The chandeliers are amazing as well! Enjoy!

Another velvet lounge - I just can't help myself!

Beautiful french doors leading out to the garden...

an oversized mirror is always a favourite statement piece...

a small space with big impact...

another example of panelled wallpaper (see post below)! All images found here, which I discovered through reading a fabulous blog called Cricket Family - well worth checking out!

Green Velvet!

This green velvet lounge is on my Christmas wish list! When I stumbled across this image on the gorgeous 'This is Glamorous' blog, my heart skipped a beat! Happy new week all - I'm enjoying the first day of my kids school holidays - we will be watching lots of Christmas movies...perfect! Tracey xx

Dreaming of Paris!

How gorgeous is the Keppler Hotel in Paris. I've been daydreaming about Paris and this is just the hotel I can see myself relaxing in after a long day of sightseeing and coffee drinking!

Christmas at the beach house

Australian christmas holidays - walking on the beach, listening to the sound of the waves lapping upon the seashore, waving hello to people as they walk on by, drenching yourself in the hot summer day (with sunscreen on of course) having time to spend with your family, nothing else to do. So nice...............

I would love this house, on the beach

love the coffee table
and the mirror
and the chairs
and the bed

South African Inspiration!

I discovered a great new source of inspiration this week called South African Home's great to see what designers are doing in other parts of the world! Hope you all have an inspired weekend!

High on Design

Just thought i'd share a few of my favorite rooms from the amazing Phoebe Howard

Who will the lucky winner be...

The lovely Brooke from Velvet and Linen asked us to be judges for the Brickmaker's table competition! After much deliberating, we had to choose only 5 from the 170 entries...not as easy as it may sound as there were so many great rooms to choose from. Head over to Brooke's blog to vote for your favourite room - it's lots of fun! Can't wait to see the winning rooms!

Seasonal Decorating!

I love decorating for the festive season! My Christmas tree went up on Friday night which is helping me get my head around the fact that Christmas is sneaking up fast! I just love these images by stylist Eva Lindh...great inspiration for the best time of the year! Tracey xx
