Happy Friday and Lonny Lusciousness

Loving this issue of Lonny Mag!

My favourite features were of Rober Leleux's Manhattan apartment and Susan Becher's West Side apartment.

I love how they both used black and white but warmed them up with neutrals and metallics and the odd shot of colour. My favourite mix at the moment is black, white, pink and gold and so this fills my fancy - but I digress... see these beauties here while I dash off on the school run in my wellies dreaming of chicness xx

The Madeline Weinrib rug makes me want to rush out and get that ikea copy-cat once and for all!

LOVE the Julie Christie poster

Monday Brights - Seeing Red

I love a red dress, and sometimes red lipstick but red is never really top of my list on the decor stakes (other than in my boys bedroom, I love the red accents in there). But I am loving these dramatic and warm rooms here... it's definitely a case of finding the perfect balance while embracing the glamour the colour oozes. Is red your colour? x

happy friday!

I love this time of year...

It's a feast for the senses: the colours of the leaves, the crackles underfoot as you walk through the woods, the cosiness of a favourite jumper.. and it all culminates for me on bonfire night...

That smell of the fireworks and sparklers...

 the comforting food, the wellies and gloves it just brings me straight back to my childhood - love it!

Whatever you are doing enjoy yourself this weekend x

Christmas Cake!

Jackson and I have spent the morning making our Christmas Cake! I've never bothered making one before but this year I really want Christmas to be back to basics - all about the twinkly lights, the tree, good home cooked food and being with the family. As such I'm starting early making sure the cupboards are stocked with all the good stuff.

Jackson adored helping stir the ingredients and licking the spoon! The house is a flour dusted mess but smells gorgeous!

I'm looking forward to feeding it (and myself) liberally with brandy from now until Christmas. Ho ho ho, there's no turning back now!

{this is how I am hoping it will look!}
If you are interested, it is the Delia Smith recipe which you can find here
