Flower Therapy

I have been a bit exhausted of late, I feel like I'm running myself into the ground. My thoughtful husband has obviously noticed this, yesterday he brought me home these vibrant orchids to give me a lift. He told me he had chosen them because they would match my aqua cushions on the bench seat in our kitchen. I was flabbergasted obviously the man has been listening to me while I prattle on about design and how I like my flowers to co-ordinate with the colour scheme of a room. What can I say I think he is developing an eye for these things.

Described by Harlequin as a fusion of Persian and Indian influences, their new range of wallpaper the Lalika Collection has just been released. I have specifed this paper for a job I'm working on, I can't wait to see it up on the walls. This pattern has me mesmerised.

Spring Solutions

Now that spring has sprung here, I thought I should share with you these great outdoor furniture solutions. New Zealand based Solaire Furniture manufacture sofas that are suitable for outdoor use. They are made of marine grade foam and use outdoor rated fabrics. The options are limitless and they will make almost any sofa design you can come up with. I think they make a great change to the timber or rattan outdoor sofas that we see everywhere. You truly can create an outdoor room with Solaire's innovative designs.

Thomas Pheasant

The home of celebrated US interior designer Thomas Pheasant has been much photographed and talked about lately. I just love the restraint he has used and the sense of calm throughout the home. His bathroom is my idea of heaven, perfect in every way. I do think that someone got a little carried away retouching though, it looks like they have photoshoped out one of the legs on the bathroom ottomans.
