We all sat back and watched beautiful Catherine walking down the isle last was one of those perfect moments...she reached her prince, they looked so perfect together...they have the magic in them.
The ceremony was emotional, solemn, just splendid. The abbey looked magnificent adorned with maple trees, red carpet, royal hats and jewellery...

I love these images above, they are fresh, fun, original, young...perfect.

Am sure they'll have an amazing and wonderful life together :))

Thank you Table Tonic!

I was the winner of a double pass to Sydney fashion week-end - courtesy of Table Tonic - and it arrived in the mail yesterday. Thank you Louise! My 15 yo daughter is over the moon - she hasn't even asked, she's just assuming she's going with me! Oh well if she behaves perhaps she will...he he!

And it's Friday!...A nice, short week is not a bad start after the Easter break! We are going to have a wet w/end though...more rain in Sydney...the sun has decided to take a break...missing you sunshine... and dreaming of you in the meantime...

I couldn't resist sharing more "rustic"'s still very wet in Sydney, just perfect weather for a cozy night on the couch with a hot cuppa...))

Have a peaceful + relaxing night

Good morning and happy Thursday everyone! The children are back at school today and the house feels a bit strange without not complaining though, I'm looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet, silence can be pure bliss sometimes :))

Thought I'd share some images from my "Rustic file" today. I love all things rustic, old, recycled, with character. Perfection is not for me, it doesn't "grab" me. Don't get me wrong, I admire it but I just couldn't live with it, it's just one of those things...I love warmth and coziness at home, it's always been that way. How about you? What makes you happy at home? Share if you dare...;)

Have a fantastic day

Tuesday inspiration

all images via

Easing back into a work schedule is definitely not simple after four days of relaxing, eating and having fun but it's got to be done and with all the projects that have already started taking shape in my mind I don't really have a choice (not that I want one). As you all know I love my job and the beauty of simple, easy, unpretentious interiors hence the selection above.

Hope you all had a great break.

Have a wonderful day...:))

Night shoot

Hello everyone! First of all thanks for all your lovely comments on "the enchanted garden" post. They sure did wonders on my self esteem...(he he!) And here I am posting some of my own work again.

These photos were taken a few weeks ago.  Some of them are available through my calinteriors etsy shop.

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Here in Sydney the sky is blue and the sun is's a beautiful day. I might take the children to the show, see how we go.

Whatever you are doing have fun and stay safe :))

Sunday charm

all images via 

These images make my heart go all it possible? Yes I know, some people might say I'm hopeless and it's true...I just cannot help myself!

The little round table in pic 3 via Lonny is just divine...I love it! Not to mention the rustic table and stools in the bottom pic - perfect contrast to the chandelier, the marble splash back and the beautiful glass bowls. My kind of decor :))

Have a lovely Sunday everyone

Week before Easter


A week until Easter, which means school holidays, which means kids at home (!!!), which means...everything is just mad! My kids will be decorating eggs this week and making Easter cards for their grandparents. They will want to organise a Easter egg hunt too, which means...lots of chocolate eggs, mess, a word "FUN"! We can handle that...he he!!!

What will you be doing this week?

Whatever that might be, enjoy your Saturday!

Mine will be a feast of tea and sandwiches, books and magazines, lounge and blankets! (it's pouring outside, really bucketing down!)

Happy award time

Hello! It's a happy day for me as the lovely Rachel from "Little bits of lovely" has kindly nominated my blog for an award. First of all thank you Rachel!

Now the rules are that I have to share 7 things about myself and pass the award on to 7 wonderful bloggers...

Here are seven things I can't live without:

My iphone! My whole life depends on it, it's my PA!

Books and magazines are a daily essential too!

Tea time is a ritual for me, can't go without my cup of strong black tea to quickly revitalise myself

Hugs from my hubby and kids...

My daily dose of fruit...I won't say veggies but fruit...yes please! calms me down especially when I'm in the car...I love the classic channel on the radio - I've just discovered it and I must admit I am really enjoying it :)

Flowers...they bring freshness and colour to any home and I just feel so much better when I'm surrounded by their beautiful perfume 

The 7 wonderful bloggers I'd like to pass this on to are:

Jane @
Julie @
Nathalie @
Carla @
Leah @
Kristin @
Annie @

Wish you all an amazing day :))

Ciao for now
