Chloe's 21st Birthday

Over the weekend we celebrated our daughter Chloe's 21st birthday at home, it was a mad dash to get our house renovation complete, we didnt quite make it but we are nearly there! Chloe wanted a black and white theme and whilst the party was intimate with just family and close friends we had the most amazing time. I seriously danced my feet off, the best part of having a party at your home was that I could take off my killer heels (shoes on left mine, right Chloe's) and for a laugh put my slippers on, okay it was after alot of champagnes but the girls were fighting me for them!!

1: My son Nick and my dad (he is a very cheeky man)
2: Chloe the birthday girl with her dad
3: Jess and Me
4: Our shoes, ouch!!!
5: My four girls, Lexi on left, Lily to the front.
6: My niece Maddie on left, my sister Anita, me, Jess
7: The girls fooling around!

As a family it has been a tough few years, we especially missed our son Nathan and it was particularly hard for Chloe not having her brother there to celebrate her special day, I did notice a bright shining star looking down on us and I knew in my heart he was there for her, I am truly blessed to have such a close family and its moments like this we will always treasure x

Loving Today

Absolutely loving the yellow stripe awnings, chippendale chairs and the entire setting has me wanting more!

Office Spaces

At the moment I'm working from a large home office, with all my best intentions hardly looks decorated so to speak, its more a mass of fabrics, boxes of accessories ready to be unpacked and shipped to clients, paint swatches and mood boards so the reality is far from these beautiful images. I am starting to plan my move as I really want a showroom, maybe shop, studio, workroom and I cant wait till I can showcase more of my work, we are already in the stages of developing our own range of Verandah House furniture, now to find the perfect location! over the coming weeks I plan to post jobs I have been working on so more on that soon!

Black and White

I am discovering with the world of facebook, my pinterest page and my busy work schedule my blog has taken a back seat, it may also have something to do with blogger changing the format and making my ability to get around my site just that bit harder, but like everything else we tackle in life, this is just a mere hurdle!

I have just added lots of fabulous pictures on my pinterest page here are a few of my favourite black and white exteriors and a touch of inspiration using simply black and white.
