converted dutch church …

I’ve always been intrigued by conversions … church, barn conversions, for example. I’ve seen some really bad ones in my travels, and I’ve seen some really good ones too. Today I’m sharing a lovely one, which  found on French by Design. The photos are by Jeltje Janmaat for Elle Decoration. Here are some of my favourite […]

all is quiet …

Not much happening around here, folks! It’s the middle of the week, and things are quiet. I thought I would share a photo of our front courtyard area, which I have a love/hate relationship with. It’s a lovely spot to sit in the sunshine and enjoy a little morning tea break, but it also seems […]

the white stuff – a white house …

[interior magasinet, via 79 ideas] Today I want to share some images from a house that I find very inspiring … white, white, white! Despite all the ‘white’, I feel it is welcoming and warm. I would find it very easy to live here. Things to love … sheepskins on armchairs that double the comfort […]

big weekend …

Last weekend, I flew home … by . myself! All alone! It was fabulous visiting my home state and city, soaking up the spring sunshine, catching up with family and friends. Of course, I slipped in a visit to the dentist and optometrist, so it wasn’t all frivolity and fun! Spring flowers were out, so […]
