Pinning down my style.

This time next year we will be embarking on our building projects back home in NZ.
It feels amazing to say that! It has been a long hard slog here in the UK, but the end (beginning?) is in sight!
I am collecting and collating images like crazy. 
Pinning down an interior style. 
I feel like I am at my best when given a challenging, limited space to work with. 
Making the best of a bad situation I guess!? 
So working from a blank slate is quite a thing.
I want my look to feel cosy, lived in, quirky, personal, warm, friendly and fun.
These images fit the bill....

Around here, lately....

A bit of this, a bit of that. 
I know I am a very lazy blogger at the moment. 
Winter for me is survival. 
If I get through, that's enough. 
But, Finn's little face, a morning coffee and doggies outside Waitrose cheer me!
And daffodils fill my frozen wee heart with springtime HOPE.

A very London Winter

A wintery ramble through Kensington Palace Gardens. 
I feel like I may finally be getting the hang of this London Winter thing. 
I still DON'T LIKE IT but I'm starting to see the beauty in the frozen fragility. 
And yes, bundling up the kids and taking a bracing walk through gardens such as these is quite a good time. 
Especially when your final destination is a cosy pub!
