I realised that I haven't shared any of our guest rooms on my blog and what good a time as any to share them than while we are in lock down and I have some time to photograph them!
We actually have 7 bedrooms in the Villa! We chose to use 2 for my dressing room and office, while the rest are used when we have guests to stay! Whilst it sounds great having so many guestrooms, its a nightmare to keep on top of the cleaning.
Today i'm sharing the littlest but to me, the cutest room in the Villa. Up until lockdown i'd say this room has been the most neglected of all of our rooms. However, this room is a favourite because of its quirky little features ... its 2 little balcony's with their grey french doors and super cute fireplace. The villa is an Spanish cortijo, which basically means Andalusian farmhouse... so naturally I chose a very traditional style of decor for the majority of the Villa. The Villa was the closest thing we could find to our beloved Provence in Spain, and really feels like a French house thanks to the french architect who built it.
As you can probably tell, i'm a fan of a dress cushion... something that my husband has always laughed at me for. I just find they have a way of making a room feel more dressed and cosy and adding a little design flair to any room.
I mentioned in my previous post that I'd been spending most of my time during lock down cleaning, tiding and re organising our villa as it seems most of you guys are too. Seeing people posting on social media about how they are investing in their homes has been really inspiring to me.
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that like most of you, iv spent my days during these crazy times of lock down pulling our home apart and putting it back together again.
Everybody wants to be confident, but not a lot of people really know where confidence comes from. True confidence is what you want to go for, and that is a much rarer breed to find than its common twin - bravado. The thing about bravado is that it very often comes hand in hand with low self-esteem but high self-regard, and that is a recipe for failure. What you want to develop is a genuine inner confidence which you can feel within you as a store of energy, and from which you can act with assurance and directness. There are a few certain things you can do to improve that internal store of confident energy.
I thought id share some photos of last years Easter celebrations. The weather was so perfect that we decided to host our friends by the pool which coincidentally, totally matched my colour theme... happy accident! ! Its so lovely to be by water don't you think?
Part of the fun of special events for me is the planning and the preparation. The lead up to the events is often more exciting than the actual event. Easter for me is one of my favourite holidays to plan for
OK, You know I love Paris. You know I love pink. You know I love candles. And you know I love Diptyque. Enter Paris en Fleur...
Now that the dreaded month of January (I go through phases of loving and hating it) We can all start to look towards the rest of the year! I can feel Spring approaching... or am I just being optimistic!?
On our last trip to London this November I managed to check out the latest pastel extravaganza at the Peggy Porschen Parlour. I hadn't been back since Halloween a couple of years ago, so a visit was way overdue.
Finding just the right outfit for those special moments in life can seem impossible. After all, we often don’t know when someone significant is going to pop the question, or when your sister will tell you she wants you to be godmother. We just can’t be sure something potentially life changing is going to happen! And looking your best for those moments? Impossible under the circumstances.
