Pink Doors

I’m always had a soft spot for pink (mildly speaking) and have fallen in love with the idea of having a Pink Front Door. Growing up in the 80’s, my mom had a pink frenzy using pink wall papers all across the house, and while I love the colour it left me rather reluctant to … Continue reading

Floral Perfection

I’m absolutely smitten by the wonderful floral fabrics used in Stella McCartney‘s and Valentino‘s Pre-Spring 13 collections. While they are very different, both collections illustrate perfection in their own way.
