My Dream Home

It is not very often that I come across a home that I wouldn't change something about it. Even if it is just something like the paint colour. But this home designed by Christian Rice is seriously my dream home. There is nothing I would change. I am very much a neutral girl so as you can imagine I am a massive fan of white simple interiors. I love the mixture of traditional features that give the house character. But it also has modern elements that make the space functional, like these amazing sliding doors out to the backyard.

Who doesn't love a backyard with a pool and a great space for entertaining. I can imagine spending summer nights out here relaxing.

The front porch is so adorable with the swing chair and rocking chairs. To me that makes for a perfect family home.

Ahhh I this entry way is so massive and the styling of the entry table is classic and simple. Check check!

The living area is open plan but still cozy and inviting. I love rooms that look good and are also functional family spaces. There is lots of natural light that comes into this space from all angles. With all those windows you would almost feel like you are connected to the outside space all year round.

This kitchen is my all time favorite. It is exactly what I would want in my home. Transitional kitchens are something that I normally gravitate towards and this one is done perfectly. Those Jeffery Alan Marks stools are also amazing.

This home is so massive it has two office type spaces, which is perfect for a his and her space. Every room in this home is so functional too. How nice would it be to open up your office to the backyard.

The master bedroom has its own space upstairs. Almost like a parents retreat. Who wouldn't want to sit here with a glass of wine and a favorite book at the end of the day.

The bedroom is so simple and serene. The high ceilings make the space feel open and I also love how light filled it is.

Last but not least, this cinema room/wine cellar is like the icing on the cake. You can check out more of Christian's portfolio here.

Designer of the day - Sophie Paterson

Recently I came across the work of Sophie Paterson and instantly fell in love. I must admit I actually have a little bit of a designer crush. She is based in Surrey, England and her work is sophisticated, but also very comfortable. Sophie is amazing at creating layers in each room that add a feeling of warmth and a sense of luxury. She uses things like wallpaper, and moody paint colours, different textured fabrics like velvet and linen and finishes like marble. Every space feels complete. She also knows how to accessorise a room to make the space feel more personalised. Overall her interiors have a sense of glamour about them. Below is one of her projects in Spain. Can you imagine spending the night in this gorgeous Villa. It is seriously amazing.

You can check out more of her portfolio here.
Also worth following is her Instagram account.

Teepee Time

As a mum you are always trying to find new ways to keep your little ones entertained. As Ava gets older she is slowly growing out of a lot of her toys and wanting more adventurous and imaginative things to play with. I love to try and buy things that will last and she wont grow out of to quickly. So I did a little research and thought a Teepee would be perfect.

After looking online I found this one from Mocha. I wanted something that was neutral and didn't look too overwhelming in Ava's room with all of her toys and so on. Kids tend to gather quite a lot of bright stuff over time, so keeping things simple really helps.

Come dine with me

We finally have the keys to our new house and we have the painters in making changes. Now all I have to do is pull the furnishings together. We bought this dining table on the weekend but have not managed to find chairs to go. Here are some that I am thinking of. I would love to hear what you guys think. Any faves?

Moving House

We recently sold our current house and I am so excited that I am counting down the days until we move. Although I hate moving because of all the packing an unpacking it also feels like a fresh start. This year has been so hectic that it will be nice to play house and be re inspired again. I am hoping to start blogging more regularly and document the design process as we get settled in. First up we want to re paint, but we will also be buying some new bits and pieces as we go so stay tuned!

Style Me Pretty Sneak Peek

Early this Summer my husband and I were in the bridal party of our best friends wedding. Their wedding was seriously gorgeous. So gorgeous that is has been featured on the massively popular wedding blog Style Me Pretty. Just looking through the pictures brings back wonderful memories of how magical the day was. 

With every wedding there is so much planning envolved and trying to keep to a budget is one of the hardest parts. Anna did an amazing job at pulling together every little detail to create a picture perfect wedding and a great atmosphere for all the guest invited. I am super excited to share a sneak peak of their special day. 

You can also take a look at more of the gallery HERE!
