Time to get organised..

There has been a lot going on in our household over the past few weeks and things have got a little out of hand tidy-wise {which disturbs me no end - I love order}!!! I have been tidying up and putting things back in their place today and after some time-out {looking at fabulous pictures works every time} I found these great storage ideas over at Apartment Therapy. Best of all, they incorporate vintage items.

Linen + Ruffles...

Whilst on the subject of gorgeous linen, I love these blankets found over at Belle Maison. Very much looking forward to a sleep in tomorrow as we have a long weekend here :-)

Linen lust...

How gorgeous are these sheets by Nate Berkus {found here}. What a pretty way to dress your bed!!! It would be a joy to have such bright, happy colours greet you after after a long day!!!

P.S. Please bear with me changing my blog and header. I am trying to adjust the size of my header & finding it incredibly frustrating. If you have any hints I would love to hear them x

I have just handed in another lot of big assignments tonight so am a little short on words!!! I love the above gorgeous pictures from Digs by Katie on the fabulous Katie Leed & Company website.

P.S. Sorry for any inconvenience if you happened to drop by when I was updating my blog and giving it a much needed facelift x

Weekend inspiration {for dining room}...

This weekend I thought I would share some inspiration that I used for my dining room. I have been trying to choose a fabric to recover the chairs which I bought {see here}, and I have finally decided on and ordered the fabric!!!

The top picture is my inspiration for colours... I will be repainting all my kitchen cabinets white and have already painted my old dining table white, with glass added to the top. I wanted the space to feel light & airy {as it is very small} but also to be fresh and pretty {with my husband requesting 'not too much pink'}!!

The bottom picture the fabrics for the chairs.  I have chosen a fabulous outdoor fabric that will withstand anything while feeling & looking great - this will be used on the seats and the front of the chair backs. The gorgeous venice toile scene with boats and pink buildings will be used on the backs of the chairs {the pic doesn't show it too well}. I wanted something a little quirky & was so excited when I found this fabric - it was meant to be!!! Once I have had them upholstered, I'll post some pics. Hope they turn out ok :-)

Have a wonderful weekend.
