It’s been nearly a week of sunshine (not that I’m counting or anything) and operation fantasy garden is in full swing. I’ve found the perfect elegant lounging chair, some great accessories for eating outside and now this gorgeous quilted picnic blanket and cool striped cushions.

On the recent blogtour trip to New York, I met Dutch blogger Desiree, of Vosges Paris and she has kindly allowed us to have a nose around her fabulous home in Amsterdam, which like Desiree herself, is dressed almost entirely in black and white.

Mad About … Dark Bathrooms

4th February 2013

The black and white bathroom is a true classic. It works in both a contemporary and a traditional setting and always manages to look fresh and clean. In addition to this, you can dress it anyway you want with the addition of brightly coloured towels in yellow or orange. Keep it feminine with pops of…
