Globetrotting

 blue_marble

We’re a bit in love with this photographic decal from WilsonGraphics and are thinking it would look quite at home in the new office, surrounded by rather a lot of bookcases.

Since falling in love with the globe, which makes me think of Apollo missions and the blue marble and earth rise images, I’ve started hankering after an old fashioned globe to go on the desk. It seems there’s something very grown-up about having a globe. I’m sure my geography wont improve, but that’s what sat nav and google maps are for surely?

Navy and white

bedroom

Flipping through an issue of Ideal Home there was a photograph of a home office with the most incredible navy blue paint colour on the walls. I instantly needed to use this colour and after very little begging, was allowed to plan the bedroom for the new house around the colour.

Secretly my favourite thing about this board is the little bedside cabinet. It’s old fashioned but more importantly it looks like one of the naughty little cabinets in Mary Poppins that make adorable noises.

The wooden name sign was an etsy find and was my present to my husband on our wedding day. My next mission may be to visit a few junk shops to buy some old blue and white china as I continue to collect fabric for the navy and white quilt.

Ashridge bluebells

We spent a magical day wandering through the incredible bluebell woods at Ashridge earlier this year. It was like being in a film. Two little girls were dancing around the bluebells looking for fairies, the sun was slipping through the trees and highlighting patches of flowers and making the colours pop. Go in late April/early May. You wont regret it.
