White delight

More beauty in white. There is just something about all white spaces that are just so peaceful, fresh, homey and gorgeous in photos. This Victorian home in London is no exception.

A home to die for

Living Etc. recently included in their magazine a spread of the incredible eclectic Victorian terrace of Mark Homewood, a buyer for interiors and textile company Designers Guild. I adore all the bold colours against the white backdrop. The painted white floorboards everywhere had me gasping in delight. This home is such an inspiration. (So inspiring in fact that thanks to the staircase photos I've decided to try and fix my stairs using wood so I can then paint them white with a runner).

Eagle's Nest


The weekend is over and it's time to head back to work. Unless you want to join me on a virtual getaway. Eagle's Nest is set within a 75 acre estate atop its own private ridgeline offering spectacular views of the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The elegant and simple, eclectic and informal interiors of the luxury villas enhance the breathtaking vistas. Imagine the sunsets viewed from the edge of our horizon edge pool. I'm dreaming of the room service. New Zealand food and wine is some of the best in the world. If only we were really there. (P.S. I am actually on a week's break but nowhere as romantic as this.)

Shameless plug part 3062

Not much happening this week on the decorating front at Casa Jo. Our organic vege garden is starting to reward us for all the hard work (not really, it's only organic because we do nothing to look after it except hand water it) but that doesn't leave me with any "projects round the house" pictures. I have however added 2 new hand watercoloured prints to my etsy store. I call them snippets of suzani. I'm experimenting with patterns as part of a larger piece for my living room wall and these are a very casual interpretation of traditional suzani pieces. (And yes I know that suzanis are so passé but I like ethnic textiles and refuse to give up what I like because design "taste makers" skittishly pounce on the next big thing.)
