Birds of the Paradise


This is my favourite corner in the new house. I love chilling there listening to music and looking out to the garden which is flowering beautifully these days. One of my exciting moments this week was finding Birds of the Paradise, one of my most favourite flowers of all time. So exotic, so wild, so perfectly coloured. Can I please have a dress in these colours?




 These are Oliver Bonas cushions bought by my mum as a Christmas gift. What a find!



The living room furniture are Natuzzi in the colour of Sand.


Our dining room…


 Our house is a work in progress. I love the process and the progress we are making.

Have you recently made any house changes? What are your favourite decoration ideas? And of course, what are your favourite flowers?

    House looks beautiful! But how do you manage to keep the furniture white? Having a little boy and a dog… I’m struggling with my couch!

      Thank you Zuma! It is a leather couch which means that it can be cleaned easily but also Scarlett is pretty well behaved. She also has her own playroom where mess is allowed instead of her parents’ white lounge.;-) xxx

    I love Birds of Paradise flowers. in California where I grew up they grow in abundance. That shade of yellow is breath taking.

      They are so exotic, aren’t they Erin? I will try to get a plant in the garden however I am worried that they may not survive the scottish winter. xxx

    My favourite flowers are violets and dandelions, placed elegantly, of course, in a gorgeous vase. They are wild, like me. And your house is beautiful. I like my Carrie Bradshaw apartment clean like an Apple Store. Straight lines. No frill. Very industrial and cold. Something that Dagny Taggart of Atlas Shrugged would have fancied.

      What beautiful descriptions and colours in this comment Nicole. Strong colours against white simple contrast is such a powerful theme. And Carrie Bradshaw had the most amazing flat indeed!

    What a beautiful home you have! I love all the white and the woodwork!

      Thank you so much Adrienne. We have really started to enjoy it now that we have unpacked the 70 boxes we had when we moved in ;-) xx
