    Can I come in? Swanky London penthouse

    by  • January 27, 2010 • Desirable dining • 3 Comments

    Who lives in a bachelor pad like this? Actually, a seemingly cute couple, but it had you fooled didn’t it? I love the shots of zesty lemon, the elaborate dining room which boasts stunning views over London and the sleek bathroom.

    It even overlooks Lord’s Cricket Ground – perfect for ‘accidentally’ ogling all those sportsman!

    Take a house tour of this swanky London penthouse at homeandgardens.com.

    Love the bathroom, but I’m sure not how I feel about double mirrors first thing in the morning…

    There comes a time when a floor-to-ceiling CDs just don’t cut it. The other day I found myself nervously placing a new edition on to the top, holding my breath for fear that the whole thing would suddenly buckle!

    So I think it’s time that I start looking for smarter CD storage solutions than the old ‘place and hope’ trick. Fortunately, I stumbled across these useful ideas on housetohome.co.uk. Phew!

    A room with a view

    by  • September 30, 2009 • Bathroom bliss • 2 Comments

    Finally, a way to brighten up bathrooms! I hate staring at dull white tiles when I’m relaxing in the tub, so when I spied this gorgeous mosaic design, I could hardly contain my excitement.

    I love the black and white flower design and subtle glimpses of colour in the top right hand corner. The perfect bathtub view!
