swinging gorgeously into next week…

 

After a lovely few days away with DeLovely, I’m still a bit floaty knowing that I have tomorrow off work as well… too much bliss channelling the 50′s!

dreamy beach escape

 

Time out ~ I went with the flow this weekend and experienced ‘The Hang”, lazing around QT at the Gold Coast, fifties style with T…

All very groovey despite the cloudy weather ~ the sun shone through with the homemade lemonade in our room on arrival!

caravan of love

 

Emily Chalmers :: talented flea market junkie!

Charming style ~ author, Caravan shop owner and stylist Emily Chalmers

lives in this delightfully eclectic London loft that is full of her favorite collected vintage treasures.

I like places that are a bit weird. I’m more interested in what you might call dwellings than purpose-built houses. I like the idea of turning an unusual space into a home, which is what we’ve done in this converted warehouse flat in Shoreditch.

When we moved in six years ago I’d only seen this place from the buying cialis on line outside. I was going away and hadn’t been able to get a viewing, but I’d spent a lot of time trying to look in through the windows without much success. I had a feeling it was going to be special so I let my husband view it and agree to move in while I was still away.

It’s very basic. We still have the strip lighting and concrete floors, and there’s no central heating, but I feel healthier for it – I just move around more and lexapro from canada wear extra layers. It gives me a nice excuse to buy a few more clothes. Guests staying over, however, have been known to wear hats in bed.

Temperature aside, it feels cosy as there are lots of textures. I love vintage floral prints and have lots of patterned clothes I hang on the walls – it makes more sense than hiding them away in a wardrobe. To create a bit of privacy I divided off the bedroom and dressing-room with floor-to-ceiling drapes. I found some great fabrics in a market in France and ran them up, along with the sofa cushions, myself.

I never shop for things for my home; I just seem to acquire them along the way. My cowhide rug is from a market in Amsterdam and I must have a fetish for Anglepoise lamps as I noticed the other day that I have about seven of them, all from different places.

The painting behind the generic viagra soft tabs canada pharmacy sofa is by Faile, a friend who did a street-art show years ago at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. They had these huge canvases they didn’t have space for after, so they gave me five. Somehow, I’ve only ended up with this one, which is a shame as a similar piece just went for £10,000. I really like mine, though – it pulls the room together. The Independent

the red refrigerator + yellow car on the wall

 

The mini can seat four adults and the kitchen sink in comfort, or bring the mini into the kitchen as a decor element.

Quirky vintage finds + kitchen accoutrements + modern kitchen = unique eclectic style.

“Antiques are wonderful, but when it comes to kitchen units, sink, mixer tap, oven, stove and refrigerator, it is perhaps not so practical.” Danish stylist Katrine Martensen-Larsen,
