Its sooo cold in London, after the amazing sunshine in Sydney last week where I eat breakfast outside of the hotel at 6.30 (in my pyjamas and flip flops I am embarrassed to say, which was not exactly professional but I figured it was early and no one would see), its hard to get used to! Feeling still under the weather, flu, bronchitis and extreme tiredness is not moving on as quickly as I hoped, wishing I had grabbed an extra day of non-work to swim in the ocean and potter about on the sand. Hey ho.
Its a busy time of the year for us, the store is about to go thru a major renovation, (its closed for a few days the week after next);Â new products are coming in, new spring flowers are due next week (we are expanding the flower shop by the way which is very exciting) so its all change. Change as they say is as good as a rest – supposedly so hopefully that will shake off my bugs. The new website will launch the same time as the store re-opening and our E-zine a few weeks after that.
Yesterday I was yabbering about space, and today I wanted to show you some fab images shot by Kristin Perers of a house in London belonging to Gaby Dellal. Check out Kristin’s blog by the way itâs fabulous, it features inspirational women turning 50. The thing that grabbed my attention about Gaby’s house is just how welcoming it feels. I’m asked all the time about tips on how to create the perfect home and my biggest biggest tip is to make it personal. Fill your home with stuff you love, ditch trends or whats in or whats out and follow you heart. Do that and you get to create a totally unique, bespoke house that conveys your personality and oozes with style. Co-incidentally I shot Gaby’s sisters house in NY for my first book, small world hey!
