The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday!  Week two in our new house and new office and still loving it.  It is that honeymoon period of a new adventure, when everything seems like being on holiday and reality is just sinking in.  As I sit typing this, my view is of 60s wall paper which is half peeling itself off being it gets steamed off, bright orange curtains and my lovely ‘be happy’ framed piece that the lovely Victoria Farr sent me.

There is a planned order for doing up this house, so I will just have to work with my current feng shui in my office to bring about great energy, whilst I wait for my creative juices to let loose and create my inspirational haven.

As my mind is now always on the look out for interesting interiors and personalised design, is anyone else currently taking on any DIY or renovation projects?  If so I would love to see, do send me a comment below or link to your instagram if you have work in progress images.

On Monday we started with a stunning shoot by Laura Dova and Wedays helping you find your dream fairytale wedding in the Dordogne – see full shoot here.

  • Hey Monique! Best of luck with the feng shui there… it sounds as though you’ve quite a project on your hands (but there’s nothing better than seeing a house all come together the way you want it to so enjoy!)
    I’m loving your blog at the moment, and I was so pleased to see a mention for English Wedding here. Thank you so much!
    Have an amazing weekend 🙂
