Some Mid-Century, Some Modern

Today I just love this Swedish house, rebuilt from recycled materials and furnished with a great mix of modern and vintage:

Happy Valentine's Day

I admit, I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day- I like to believe that romance is more than just one day.

Still, if there is one thing I do love it is receiving flowers. In fact, I'd love to have them in every room of the hous, just like in this one:

The Retro Decorator - Living in the Year 2000

I love all the different mirrors in this house - from an issue of BBC Homes & Antiques magazine from November 2000, especially that quirky collection of hand-held ones in the middle picture.

Happy Weekend!

A Focal Point in the Bedroom

After several years of nagging on my part, we finally bought a new bed before Christmas. Whilst it was delivered just in time for Christmas, the mattress itself has taken a little longer, and I only had a call today to say it would be delivered in the next few days. Along with a little bit of decluttering that is slowly (very slowly) taking place, it means that our master bedroom might look halfway respectable sometime soon.

Whilst I am very much a believer that a bedroom should be a fairly neutral, soothing space, I am starting to think that bare walls are not really the way forward. I am therefore on the lookout for a focal point to hang above the bed -  I'd love a huge canvas of abstract art. Until I finally find something I can live with for the next X years, I'm enjoying looking for some inspiration for "art above the bed":
