Spinning Around

When ever I see a herringbone wood floor I want to put on a tutu and spin around like a ballerina!
or slide across it on my knees :) and pretend like I am three

what makes the child in you want to come out and play?

Well we made it and Christian and I are a little tired but so glad to have managed to set up on time and what a start to the year. Top Drawer has seen the launch of our lovely ivory chic shop furniture, and I must say what a difference it made to displaying so much product without a clutter feeling.

The full length wooden card rack with adjustable shelves looks fabulous and a number of stylish retailers have ordered themselves some new furniture for there stores.

Top Drawer Spring 2011

Our first show of the year is this weekend at Earls Court, London. This is a trade only show so if you are a store visit the Top Drawer website to register

The photos we took back in Australia on the 22nd December and wow what a day Christian and I had. We did get a few strange looks setting up chairs and scarves in the water, one thing was for sure we didn't have to worry about not having enough light, and I got a little bit sun burnt it was just before 9am when we went down to the beach and it took us an hour to get all the shots, it was such a bad day in the office that day!
See you at the show xxx

Black & Cream

Here are just some of the inspirational images on my pin-up board at the moment in my studio.
I'm sat in my warm cosy UK home studio watching dog walkers wander past the window all bundled up under layers of warm clothing. I arrived back into London on late last Wednesday and have had a whirlwind last 4 days, but it is so lovely coming home. Waking up to a crisp white covering from Mr Jack Frost who has been very busy last night was magical.
Back to work for me today with a very large mug of hot tea and to finish a range of girlie floral cards, no breaks as I have gone over my deadline!
Have a beautiful day xxx

Church for Sale in the UK

My little church in Brixham, Devon on the market to sell.
St Peter's has full planning permission to be turned into a stunning 4/5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, family home over 3 levels.
More pitures and plans can be seen here at

Here are some of the images from my 'Church' folder, I have so many ideas and just hope to maybe one day see St Peter's in all it's finished glory as a home. It was just left to rot when we discovered it and it then took 11 months of very hard work to get full planning permission.

Asking price £120,000, sensible offers are welcome. Please email me with any questions or if you would like to receive an email of the granted planning permission drawings.
