Take a Look Around

So take a look around you .... some people stop to smell the roses ... others stop to look at the colours in their everyday surroundings - we do the latter!

Below are some of my snap shots from last years holiday in England. The colours of Singapore are next ;)

Look at nature when you next want to decorate and pair colours. As Sharlene likes to say 'nature rarely gets it wrong'

And these tiles are from the home above. Tiles in the 1700's  ... so many people would have crossed this floor to give the tiles a wonderfully 'smooth to touch' finish. Anyone laying these at home?

Fabulous Floors

Both of us here at Dwell South Coast have been in the market for new flooring lately.  You would think it an easy task for a couple of interior addicts but not so!  The hunt for the perfect floor is both daunting and frustrating!

Luckily for Tonya she could rip up her old floor and start fresh so had a bit more freedom of colour and style.  However it involved lots of moving furniture, a couple of nights at Mum's and a whole lot of dust!  The end result was worth it though, it looks amazing and suits the house, the interior and the family's lifestyle.

 And me?  Well I'm still on the lookout for a floor that suits my house, my family and my lifestyle!  And it has to work in with our existing brush box parquetry floor - tough!
