My personal lace up choices this Friday would be by Hunkydory (as above).

The white gauze blouse could be finding its way into my wardrobe sometime soon.

Latest Painting Project – Georgian Bureau.

This was an unloved large piece of brown furniture that needed some tlc.

As soon as I got my hands on it I gave all the hardware some elbow grease and immediately could see how fabulous this piece was going to look.

I began with a few coats of Earth Stone chalk paint on the exterior, a lovely brown/grey colour.

Then I applied a coat of clear wax.

On top of that I painted a mixture of diluted pale grey chalk paint which was then wiped off with a clean cloth to create a layered effect and the whole piece was protected again with clear wax and given a distressed finish.

The interior I painted using both Graphite and Nearly Black chalk paints.

This paintwork was protected with dark wax and lightly distressed.

A wonderful piece with oodles of storage that is both practical and beautiful.

Currently for sale – £425.00.

Latest Painting Project – Rustic Pine Kitchen Table.

I saw this pine kitchen table and thought rustic, heavily distressed and petrol blue.

Well, petrol blue is the name I’ve given to this bespoke paint colour I mixed.

It’s a combination of blue and black paint to create this lovely petrol/ink blue.

Heavily distressed and finished with coats of clear and dark wax.

Currently For Sale: £225.00

I think it’s fair to say I am a scarfaholic.

My scarf collection ranges from Zara to Hermes and I always get excited when I discover a new designer so when I came across Sabina Savage’s designs I was super excited!

This is a British company producing luxury scarves printed in Italy.

After recently selling one of my Hermes scarves (not a decision taken lightly I can assure you but I simply never wore this particular one no matter how much I tried) I have decided to trade it in for a gorgeous Sabina Savage scarf.

The only dilemma is which one??

The Prettiest Of Pinks.

Pale pink paint needn’t be confined to the bedroom walls of young girls across the nation, it also looks very cool on living room walls.

Unexpected? Yes but surprisingly grown-up and works with a whole spectrum of colours ranging from your soft greys and rose golds to contrasting colours such as forest green and amber.

It also has the additional benefit of being extremely flattering.

And according to Pantone, Rose Quartz is the hot colour for 2016.

Think I could jump on this trend.
