As I slowly wait for the finishing touches to my kitchen re: pantry door, paint, Oh the tiles went on today.... they look amazing!! so excited. I'll sneak in a pic in this post! Anyway as I was saying... while I wait patiently for the last few things to be done in the kitchen I have been doing a lot around the house such as moving furniture and finishing off my study (which you will see in my next post), painting what's left of the stained timber windows to white, framing pictures and hanging them and changing up the linen on my bed for the coming summer! When I saw these pillowcases from AURA I fell in love, I thought they would be the perfect pop of colour to go with my white linen and greys in my bedroom. I was fairly lucky to get them as they have now totally sold out of the whole range. They are reversible too with a nice soft grey on the back.

Peony pillowcase in 'saffron'

Yes, I need to buy the other lamp, I bought one to try and still haven't got the other...

When I get sick of the yellow I will turn them around!

'my things'

The print above the bed means quite a lot to me and I actually based my colour scheme for the room around this. My Mum had it hanging in her room and so did my grandmother it is at least 30 years old!
It has the most beautiful colours in it - all dusty blues, sage and mauve with the greys and bright white doves.

I'm on the look out now for a nice throw to match in for the end of the bed, just for when we still have these cool nights like tonight!

as I promised a quick shot of my tiles....

Well I am now off to that very room - to bed!

ps. Jamie's 15 minute meals are great!!

  1. I love the combination of yellow and gray - definitely a favorite of mine! And those tiles - very, very cool. Am looking at something similar for when we get around to our own kitchen reno!
