Lovely linen...

Whilst this look is a little more conservative than my normal style, I really adore those beautiful linen chairs. They absolutely ooze style!

Pretty plates....

Stunning Styling: Coral and White

Just love the styling here. I adore that tone of coral pink and mixed with the classic white, it comes together amazingly well. And, the delightful little details here are what make it such a beautiful look, I do love all those little bits n pieces. Kellie xx

Baking: Raspberry and White Chocolate Cake

I do get a bit nervous baking but this lovely cake turned out delicious yesterday - a raspberry and white chocolate cake with raspberry cream! Kind of like a giant friand. I have noted the recipe below just in case you wanted to give it a shot. The original recipe didnt have white chocolate but I just added it in as I love the white chocolate and raspberry combination. Kellie xx

1/3 cup plain flour
2/3 cup almond meal
1 cup icing sugar
90g melted butter
3 egg whites
1t vanilla extract
1 cup raspberries
Additional raspberries and whipped cream

Preheat oven to 160c. Combine flour, almond meal, icing sugar, butter, egg whites and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Fold through berries and place in a greased 18cm cake tin. Place remaining raspberries on top of mixture and bake for 35 - 40 mins. Serve with whipped cream.

Friday Joy!

Yay its friday! Im looking forward to the weekend that will include sleep ins, flower markets, playing with pretty home decor items and lunch right on Sydney harbour! Can't wait! xx

Gelato Colours...

I'm so drawn to gelato like colours, in clothing and accessories as well as beautiful things for the home. I find this tone of colour soft, relaxing and extremely pretty. I just adore it for furniture pieces, accessories, wallpaper, paint etc. Anything really! Some people associate these colours with children, definitely not me, I think they are for anyone! Kellie xx

Another gorgeous arrival

Just been advised our gorgeous bedding is on it's way! The shop is nearly there, all products ready to go, just having to tweek some of the design etc that the developer is working on {that is taking much, much longer than expected}. Thank you so much to everyone who has shown such lovely interest! Fingers and toes crossed that it wont be too much longer. Kellie xx

Glass vessels ...

There still for me, is nothing like gorgeous, mixed up glass vases to set the stage for lovely blooms on a table. I have loved that look for so long now and it seems, it still makes me all warm and fuzzy! Kellie xx

Kitchen dreams

Isn't this kitchen just angelic! Whilst I do love a bit of colour, im quite impartial to a crisp and white looking kitchen that reflects the light beautifully. Kind of like, bridal like fashion in a kitchen! Our kitchen is more on the cream side and whilst it's tidy and still clean looking, the colour isnt as clean as I would like it. Never mind, next home we hope to do everything from scratch and make it just as we please. Kellie xx

A Pencil Choice...

For some reason of late I have felt compelled to stop using pens and write everything with pencils, there is something so raw and creative about them. The other day I found some gorgeous ones with a stunning colourful stone on the end that are sitting on my desk, waiting for me to give them lots of love. I haven't used them just yet as they are so beautiful, I dont want to waste them away! Kellie xx

Pretty Table Linen: My Purpose!

I spotted this fabulous napkins over at Kerr Bear 59 and thought these were so gorgeous! I do love bright and bubbly table linen as it always makes such a stunning impact on a table. For me, being a pretty average cook, has meant that I always to make the table look as lovely as possible to make up for my lack of cooking skills! For all those Australians who have watched even 5 minutes of Junior Masterchef (and also lack skills in the kitchen) those children have made me feel more incompetent indeed! Kellie xx

Beautiful fashion!

Wouldn't it be fabulous to be at New York fashion week! I read posts from lucky people that are there and it looks amazing... I have been keeping a close eye at and must say that Monique Lhuillier has been the highlight for me. I adore her style and darling fabrics and this collection doesn't disappoint. See the full collection {here}. Kellie xx

A fabulous sofa

I adore this sofa from i suwannee - one of my favourite blogs. So funny as well! I just love that bold pattern - it makes my heart skip a beat. Actually everything on this fabulous blog i just adore. xxx

Ps. I woke up this morning to more lovely enquiries about this gorgeous toile cushion featured {here}, this one isn't by me/not available for sale from me. Its from Anna's shop/Absolutely Beautiful Things - please contact Anna if you are interested, she will be able to give you more wonderful information xx

Bold choice today

Bit of a bold choice for this afternoon but I did see that headboard and that fabulous striped ottoman and thought I have to come back to this for future inspiration! Not sure I would ever paint walls that colour, I tend to go for more of a turquoise green rather than a traditional tone like this one, but still, this space has some pretty fabulous things going on! Kellie xx

A bit of play time....

Moved some things around and have two of my favourite cushions back in my bedroom. Love having a bit of time to play! Loving that lamp and shade too.. Those spots on the lamp base are so delightful {faint in this shot}! Kind of makes me want to read more in bed {which I never do - i seem to spend too much time looking at blogs instead with all those pretty pictures}. Kellie xx

Ps. I have gotten a few emails about the pink toile - that one is from Black and Spiro {Absolutely Beautiful Things} - Im sure Anna would love to help you xxx

Magical sunsets

Another stunning home! Sort of makes you feel all jealous inside. I could certainly sit back and enjoy a wine each day at sunset here... Such pleasant dreams...xx

Lunch and a kaftan

Heading off to lunch today with Luke and think my this gorgeous kaftan featured below is just what I need! It has pretty little stones all around the neckline and the hood - just love that little bit of sparkle. The turquoise and lime colours are beautiful together, I also do have a soft spot for this in interiors as well and found some just lovely ideas! Hope you like them too... Kellie xx
