    ‘What are you doing for Valentines?’ is the question de jour around the office. If you’re anything like me, you won’t be whisking off for a romantic weekend in the Cotswolds, spending the evening at the theatre or enjoying a candlelit dinner at a swanky restaurant.

    Lunchtime Lust: decorating with grape purples

    by  • November 29, 2010 • Desirable dining, Stylish living • 0 Comments

    … well it is the time for mulled wine after all! I love this decorating idea from Ideal Home, it’s all about being inspired by fruity red-wine colours and creating a deliciously decadent room to wow your guests this Christmas.

    Make a wall hanging to create a backdrop… or to hide an ugly feature. Use mismatched dining chairs to create an eclectic look, but make sure they’re all in the same colour and material.

    Mix shades of deep purple for a sexy and sophisticated living room, but add liquorice-black accents to keep the scheme grounded.

    Lunchtime Lust: Sexy and swanky stripes

    by  • November 24, 2010 • Beautiful boudoirs, Desirable dining, Stylish living • 2 Comments

    I’m finding myself teetering on the edge of a very steep Christmas cliff at the moment, a mere breath away from plummeting into a world of Christmas decorations, ideas, gift ideas and festive Crafts… so why I’ve still got my balance, I thought I’d continue with some general (albeit it absolutely stunning decorating schemes).

    I love these luxurious decorating schemes from Homes & Gardens, they show just how stripes offer the perfect way to make a stylish statement.

    An elegant wallpaper with wide horizontal stripes will give a living room the illusion of width.

    Lunchtime lust: flower power ceiling

    by  • February 25, 2010 • Desirable dining • 6 Comments

    Ok, I admit this wallpapered ceiling might be a bit much on a day-to-day basis (especially afters girls’ night), but as a fan of colour, and a fan of feminine boudoir-chic decorating, I’m really drawn to this ambitious floral wallpaper, as seen on gdlaneinteriors blog … they do say, ‘aim high’, after all?

    Personally, I wouldn’t go for it in the dining room – it might be a bit much for some dinner guests – but I think this wallpaper would look great in a girly bathroom or bedroom – just as long as it doesn’t spread to the floor!
