School morning madness about to kick right off... thought I would get this on before breakfast and uniforms are all over the shop!! . . . Canny chilly this morning, have a great Monday we will be at the top of hump ⛰ before you know it 🙌🙌 . . . Chris & Ross 💙🖤
Dress for the weather you want not the weather you have, right? • Truth Time: I’ve dreaded posting a picture on this social platform for over half a year. How do you go from happily married to happily divorced? You don’t. What pictures can you post that represent happiness when you just aren’t there yet? There are none. I’ve always loved accounts on here that are honest and real and I want to be that with you guys. So here I am! Months later and happy to report I haven’t thought of faking a smile in a long time. I can’t wait to show you guys all the things that have been making me genuinely happy lately. Like my cute little apartment, my two crazy kitties and even all the adventures I’ve been going on! Thanks for hanging around and watching my stories. Ya girls back!!!
I’m overwhelmed by the love nelly has been shown this weekend. I just want to say thank you. Thank you to anyone who bought. These pieces have been selected with SO much love, I actually don’t want to sell you any of it 😂...see I warned you! I’m obsessive & so much time goes into hunting this stuff down. Every single thing has to pass the “would I own this piece and cherish it my own home” test, and the answer is YES! I’ll never sell you anything I don’t ♥️ & adore and I stand behind every single thing I stock. Thank you to anyone who stopped by to browse, to ask questions, to chat about interiors. Obvs I love sitting on sofas drinking 🥂and the chatting and getting to know you all is actually my favourite bit! The digging down into what it is you love so much about your homes, and filling them with things that tell a story. Your story. Thank you to anyone who’s stopped by over the past weeks (a lonely old time behind a dust sheet) to say something kind. You have no idea how that has kept me going. The family that stopped by to say they wanted to paint their rooms black, and weren’t quite ready and now they have! The amazing girls who told me it reminded them of stores in Paris, in terms of styling. I may have tried to look cool and collected but inside I was squealing...my most fave stores in the world Tombees du Caminon & L’Objet Qui Parle have been huge sources of inspiration to me and the two months we spent in Paris all those years ago, I was quietly absorbing all of it, storing away ideas hoping one day I could put it into something like nelly. Thank you to my family of friends who’ve painfully watched me grapple with self-confidence over the years and must have secretly been wishing I’d hurry up and get my shit together but would never dare put it quite like that! 😂 I must be exhausting! ♥️ Thank you to my dear friend/brother @nick_charters who acts as my unpaid creative director 😂, whose taste I trust so
Happy Sunday! ✨ We started getting the tiniest bit of cool ☁️ weather in the mornings, and evenings, and we’re already sick with colds! 😷 🤧 Not just me, and little sis anymore, big sister has caught it too. 😞 It’s going to be a long winter, if this is how we’re starting out! 😕 I broke down and drank tea 🍵 today. I’m not a fan of tea, 🙅🏽♀️ and I only ever drink it when my throat seriously hurts, and out of desperation. Well folks, desperation is here. 😩 Wasn’t going to post at all today, because I want to call it an early night, 🙏but I already had this one prepped so figured I’d post anyway. Still shopping our house, borrowed this bold and gorgeous 😍@chelseygrayart print from our bedroom, and stole some Lisianthus from Friday’s bunch, 😉 to stick in this giraffe 🦒 vase, paired with some newish handpainted candlesticks, 🤩 for a little basket wall corner refresh! 👌🏽 Hope you’ve had an enjoyable, and healthy weekend! 🤗😘
ad |HAPPY SUNDAY! JD is always heading out on business trips & he now has the perfect leather weekend bag gifted by @azurinastore to pack all of his belongings into. It even has a shoe compartment!!! Okay, I’m slightly jealous, I think I need to order it for myself in black croc 🤣🤩 #azurina
Ladies and gents, may I present to you... ⚡️ 'Otto' ⚡️ This handsome devil has the Art Deco moves to bring the house down on ANY party! He's dressed up in his stunning walnut finery, with a splash of gold to set him apart from the rest of the crowd. I've spent a lot of time with this chap over the past couple of weeks, ensuring he's absolutely ready to be let go into the big wide world, carefully attending to his every need to make sure he's in absolutely top notch condition. You won't see much paint here. With just a splash of gold accent to his plinth, this serves only to elevate the young man, enabling him to do what he does best - showing off his coat of glorious walnut! 😍😍 He was adamant he didn't want anything covering this, except for a fresh coat of Fusion Mineral Paint's hemp oil, 'cos that's how he rolls. There's nowhere to hide with a restoration of this manner. He's had a previous life, showing the bumps and bruises we all pick up along the way. Yet I've laid everything bare with him, nursed him back to full health, and I'm thrilled to be able to bring him back from the brink and offer him another lifetime of use! He's available now, from you know where: https://www.eclectica-projects.com/shop/vintage-art-deco-drinks-cabinet-or-cocktail-bar-with-light-and-drop-down-mirrored-table-in-walnut-with-gold-accents Party on! Excellent! . . . . . @eclecticaprojects @fusionmineralpaintuk
Happy Sunday Lovelies!! . I was going to show you a picture of my updated living room area but when I looked at the photos, all of them showed the rug flipped over on one side! Now I'll say that normally when I take pictures of my home, it's really how it looks most of the time. But what I can't stand is something crooked or turned the opposite way or even backwards. That drives me crazy!!!!😳 So now instead you get a picture of me - Sorry😉❤ . . . . . . #everysquareastory#mochagirlplace#abmathome#interiorstylist#over50andfabulous#lesshousemorehome#bohointeriors#myhouzz#inmydomaine#bhgstylemaker#broughttoyoubythrifting#eclecticdecor#rockmyvibe#greathomestaketime#gallerywallhashtag#decorcrushing#thisiswhyithriftshopeveryday#sorealhomes#sodomino#interior_and_living
Some friends took us to a party last night for our first #elgrito (look it up!) to celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day. Today I’m nursing a taco and margarita hangover. Viva Mexico! __ __ @almostmakesperfect has the most beautiful home with loads of white rugs and neutrals. She even spills her secret to keeping her rugs to clean (spoiler: no shoes in the house!). Since living in a big city I’ve definitely become a no shoes in the house person, even though I used to hate the balancing act of having to take my shoes off at people’s entryways. What‘s the rule at your home? 👟👠👡
I had a great photo shoot last week with @anderssonkristiina and @hellcatsyoga so I’ve been spending this weekend pouring over all the photos trying to pick the best ones.... can’t wait to show you guys....
Day two! Still drawing and starting to paint! Here’s a few answers to ?’s many have asked: - we don’t project anything, the pattern is organic and we don’t know exactly what it’ll look like til it’s on the wall. Basically we make it up as we go. - we use #sharpies for our lines. After the mural is all painted we outline with a paint pen. - this is for a cake studio/bakery, so that’s why there are cakes and cupcakes in the mix. - we use wall paint and will go over the top of the whole thing with a clear coat when it’s all done. We don’t do this step with every mural but this in in a place we feel like it is necessary. - this rad place will be the @cakecreationstudio in the @shopsatriverwoods at the other side of @blickenstaffs - this cake studio is the brainchild of @themightybaker and it’s going to be awesome!!! Follow @cakecreationstudio for details on the opening and upcoming events! #ahappyvistamurals#cakestudio
🔸BACK🔸Het bed heb ik vandaag weer terug tegen de muur gezet. Onder het raam slapen, was met die warme nachten heerlijk, maar vind het toch mooier staan tegen de muur. En wat vinden jullie?(Kijk anders ff een paar foto’s terug) Ik wens jullie een hele fijne avond😘
Happy Saturday Lovelies!! . I'm on such a roll with the changes being made to my home. I may not look like much to some, but it's made a big difference for me. Finger cramps, headaches and leg cramps. I tell y'all, I'm on a roll!!! . . . . . . #everysquareastory#mochagirlplace#lesshousemorehome#interiorstylist#plantsmakepeoplehappy#currentdesignsituation#hgtvhome#apartmentherapy#eclecticdecor#decorcrushing#rockmyvibe#howihaven#myinteriorstyletoday#originmagazine#flauntyourleaves#thepottedplant#inmydomaine#sorealhomes#sodomino
Nowhere I’d rather be. Last nights gallon of red wine and an early start with the boys has me hankering for some more Zzzz’s. These have rapidly become my favourite set of sheets. Something about the pattern reminds me of my childhood ✨ #sleepysaturday
Well I can’t help but feel like the summer is kinda coming to an end over here in Sweden... so I’m going to enjoy every hour outside that I can this weekend... I’m thinking extra long dog walks and even a spot of tennis. I call it tennis 🎾 but that would be unfair to the noble sport of tennis 😅 really it’s just flailing around the court, oblivious to borders, rules or any kind of structure. It’s incredibly good fun 😂
