LOVE this house (courtesy of Design Sponge)

I saw this house on Design Sponge and had to re-post it.. the owner is Emma Reddington. I especially love the top two images: the bright, airy rooms, big windows and repeated use of wood is really fresh and quite Scandinavian. The fluffy white chair (is it a throw on a chair, or actually the design of the chair?) in the second image makes the set-up a lot more interesting - it's cosy and inviting. Again the second pic from the bottom there is a striking but incredibly simple use of wood, alongside white and red. I've always wanted big squidgy floor cushions like those ones! It makes me ache for a proper space to decorate, aside from this tiny bedroom!

Dairy House Antiques, Dorset.... goodies galore

I just had to do a post about this great antiques place in Dorset, called Dairy House Antiques, a sprawling (albeit chilly) building crammed with very well priced goods. I took some hurried snaps of one of my favourite rooms, which featured an antique pram, some great old posters and lots of big, colorful enamel jugs and bric-a-brac. I found a vintage vanity case (bottom picture) for about £11 or so - a HELL of a lot less than any place in London would have it priced at.

If you do happen to be taking a trip to the rolling hills of Wiltshire than do stop by this place for a look; it has fantastic vintage fabrics and enough gear to furnish your aspirational country pad with.
