Adding pizzazz

How to add some pizzazz to a space is a question I get asked again and again.  Its super easy you just need a big dose of confidence and a few tricks up your sleeve. Imagine for a moment you live in an old stone building where the walls are thick as anything and it all feels a smidge over whelming. Well to lighten the mood one such homeowner has added a causal bright funky little tablecloth, some fab little green chairs and an assortment of personal mementos on the mantle piece. It shouts relaxed,  lived in and totally sweet. Art is one of the best ways to snazz  up walls and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. Sketches, prints, photographs simply framed  add a unique vibe. Love the image below  it’s a magpie approach  so nothing matches yet it all makes perfect sense. Oversized pillows (you can never have too many) add another layer of comfort . Reworking vintage finds by re upholstering and giving them a jolt of colour is one of my favourite things to do and nothing makes a statement more than a good old splash of colour. The space below shows how fabulous some sweet little bar stools can look when revamped.  Yellow a colour that scares a lot of people (me included) looks fabulous when used as a detail  I love how it flows throughout this space. That’s me done happy Wednesday before I forget I must apologise if anyone is having trouble purchasing my book. It seems many stores have run out again – its currently being printed for the third time (WOW) and is due in end of Sept so please bear with us. Thank you
