happy friday!

What are you doing this weekend? We are off to an early fireworks/ halloween fancy dress open air event just outside Henley. Can't wait!

I've bought this lovely parka this week from Ted Baker, I love the way it fits and comes in at the waist making it feel more fitted. It's also super warm so I will be feeling all toasty out in the cold night air!

Whether you are indoor or outdoor - have a great one!

Monday Brights - Caitlin Wilson Textile Launch

I love Caitlin Wilson's style and so have obviously been rather impatiently waiting for her textiles and pillow range to launch. Well today's the day!

I've just been over to her website and am now in a quandry - I love it all! I'm really in need of new cushions for our living room so I think I'm going to be sitting here trying to make a decision on which combo to pick. I love the bright and fresh colours and prints and the way they have been carefully thought out to compliment each other is very clever.

Here are a few of my favourites...

Wallpaper Wednesday

I think the fact that we are renting means I am forever obessed with wallpaper (what you can't have and all that), however for some projects I have going on I've just received some samples that scratch that itch for me! 

I have a particular penchant at the moment for anything slightly metallic, or with a hand painted look... so pretty and give such a richness to a room. Here are a few of my faves...

Designers Guild - Darly - I adore the grey background against the pink and gold.

Designers Guild (again!), this is Ajanta shown here in pewter...

 ... And here in lavender. It gives a plaster effect but the colour has a metallic sheen to it. It would be stunning in a room with some dramatic furniture.

Bird in a Bush from Anna French - an all time fav but even more pretty in person with that super shiny background. My dream dressing room wallpaper! One day!

Another all time fav is Nina Campbell's Perroquet in black. A work of art in wallpaper form.

Another overblown bloom, this one is Radiance in rose gold from Prestigious. A great price at £30 for the quality of the wallpaper and the richness of the colours which doesn't come across on screen. Yum yum!

All available from Wallpaper Direct x

Absent Without Leave

Wow I've been AOL for nearly a month! Shocking behaviour, I know and am looking forward to catching up with over due blog reading. The only excuse I have is that Mr C has been away for three weeks which left me just a tad frazzled...

I have been busy in any spare moments making up moodboards for my assignments and also for a good friend, Katy. 

Katy is married to Lee and juggles work with two small boys so she came to me asking for ideas to turn their master bedroom into a boutique hotel style haven. They both love classic, tailored style but I know Katy would also like something a bit more feminine in their testosterone fueled house! 

So I came up with two moodboards - one smart, one more romantic - and they loved them both which is great. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do and will be posting the before and after photos when they do it! x
