when parusha lewis of the lovely blog lewidoo fancies, found she didn't have enough time to read all the books she wanted to she came up with this genius solution the loo/library. Love the set up of this little room, the bookshelves and accesories make you forget that it's actually a bathroom.

happy weekend

if you are in the UK enjoy the bank holiday weekend (yey!) seeing as it's friday what better way to start the weekend than with a bit of disco dancing, so i thought i would put a little playlist together to start the long weekend and if your going dancing you need some killer heels (love the McQueen heart shape peep toe variety).

just dance list

made in britain

how about this? everything in your home is removed and you have to replace it all with British made products only, omg no japanese telly or mac lipgloss, this is the idea for a new tv show starting on blighty featuring Dom Joly (him off trigger happy tv). He has to set about replacing his whole house and wardrobe with new british made stuff ,at least he'll still look dapper in his saville row suit.

kitchen makeover

when i came across the fab pure style home blog i just loved what interior designer lauren liess had managed to do to her new home in just two weeks! with help from her family,friends and handy husband she managed to turn her kitchen from a dark wood nightmare into a light airy space, with lots of open shelving to display fave kitchenware. Love how colour has been brought easily into the dining room with a desk and colourful artwork.
take a look.........

yummy cookbooks + kitchens

i don't really do that much cooking but for some reason i love cook books, jamie and nigella can't get enough. so when i saw that sophie dahl (love her) had brought a book out i was intreged so i ordered it from amazon (only cost £8 bargain!) this book is gorgeous not only are there some yummy but simple recipes with lush styling and illustrations, sophie also writes about her life and her relationship with food as an introduction to each section, split into the four seasons.


so....................... i got to thinking about what would be my dream kitchen to cook in
maybe one of these


it's all in the details.

your space community makeover

this is a great competition running on mydeco at the moment, if there is a community space in your area that's looking a bit dull and tired, the yourspace campaign is giving one uk project a chance to get their space made over by mega designers sir terrence conran and tara bernerd (love her work!) all you have to do is submit a picture of your space and tell them why it deserves a makeover entries close may 29th. I think this a great idea there is no reason why public spaces can't be beautifully designed and practical.

imagine if your local youth centre was given a funky edge like this


or your local rundown library was given a cosy hunting lodge feel like this
