Mirror, Mirror!

Mirrors are such an easy way to add glamour to a space as reflected in these gorgeous images via Martha Stewart. I love the mirrored wall in the first pic with the mirrored console sitting in front - stunning! As for the next pic, the mercury glass light fixture reflected in the 4 framed mirrors looks fabulous! Hope you have all enjoyed your week so far - sorry for the lack of posts but we have been dealing with sick kids while trying to get things organised before our trip to Melbourne on the weekend! Life is so crazy at times.

I came across this lovely home in Portland Rd, London
and was taken in by the the contrasting colours and
styles so I thought I would share.
The images were taken by Shoot Factory in the UK 
and can be viewed also on

My Holiday to LA

My husband & I took our three children on a wonderful summer holiday during the July holidays. We stayed on the gorgeous Santa Monica beach for a whole week. We hired bikes, ate out at some amazing restaurants and then drove to San Francisco along the Coast road.
I will post more pictures in the next few weeks. Life has been busy at our place as we are getting our house ready to sell very soon. While we were away, I had plenty of tradesmen doing our new bathroom renovation and other various things. So the first thing I had to do when I walked in the door from our trip was vacuum. How enthralling!!
Hope you all have a very restful weekend.

What stunning, inspiring images these interiors and exteriors are from interior designers Bonesteel Trout Hall. I came across this lovely website via Katie Did blog this week and these are a few of my favourite images.

A Touch of Blue!

I love all these images with the soft aqua blues contrasting with touches of green. So simple, summery and fresh. I would love the little white side table in the last pic - I'm sure I could find a perfect spot for that at my house! Tracey xx

I simply adore the style of this San Fransciscan flat of Williams-Sonoma Home designer Monelle Totah. Black and White is the main backdrop with splashes of strong colour to give character and interest to each room. I love it!

Wish it was mine...

As I am having guests for dinner tonight and more again for lunch tomorrow, I could really use a stunning kitchen like this one from House Beautiful Magazine. Imagine what I could whip up in that industrial size oven! Happy weekend all! Tracey xx

The Wallpaper Difference!

I just love a good before and after shot.


Its amazing what some wallpaper and some well chosen accessories can do to lift a bathroom. I think it looks fabulous! (Images via House Beautiful)

NY Hotel!

I just love the classic design of The Mark Hotel in New York by designer Jacques Grange. This is the kind of hotel I could really relax in - especially that stunning bathroom!

South African Beauty!

I have long admired the work of South African interior designer John Jacob Zwiegelaar of John Jacob Interiors. I just love the simplicity of his style while using pieces that are unusual and interesting ie. the horses on the dining table.

I have previously posted on his beautiful interiors before here.
