The Home of .... Amanda





This is the home of Amanda, the owner of a shop called Small Acorns, who lives in Wellington, NZ with her daughters Millicent and Eva. I found her blog via the top picture which I found on Pinterest ( Shock.... with a link) and totally fell in love with that ornate colourful carved dresser.

The rest of her home is equally as eclectic and beautiful and i really love the mixture of old, modern and electric pinks and greens.

A 14th Century English home











It was my birthday this week and my parents came to stay, it was awesome to have a catch up and we went to St Fagans just outside of Cardiff. It was such a cool place where they had moved houses from across Wales to set up a Welsh Life museum. One of the Houses was from my parents old village..... This got me thinking it was about time I posted about some of the beautiful houses the UK has to offer...

So here is a beautiful 14th Century Suffolk home that was lovingly restored by skincare brand Pevonia, owners Daniela Chandler and Paul Mason.

This home is similar to my parents old home in Wales, although the upstairs rooms are now used for  bedrooms in the 14th century these rooms would have been used for storage........

I love these properties.....Stone floors, beamed ceilings and a great big inglenook fireplace... what is not to love?

The Home of...... Musician Sonny Coates

"You know how rappers wear gold chains? I wanted to do that but with an earthy feeling."

“I like a lot of science fiction... The corporate mindset, blocks out all the weirdness of true reality – all the beauty the randomness, the poetry. Science fiction pulls you back to reality. When I read it, I feel like, ‘oh ok this is the reality, thank god.’ The bland reality is a drag. “
“There are two types of artists – subjective artists and objective artists. Subjective artists just spit out their art, like a painter puts paint on a page. An objective artist is in more spiritual heights, where all of the universe creates through them, making something very beautiful and poetic – a masterpiece that’s very divine and sublime. It’s beyond you -- that’s the kind of artist I want to be.”
Sonny is a musician and artist currently living in LA. He collaborates with other musicians under the name Preampus.
 I really like this home of musician Sonny Coates that I have just rediscovered on Style like U.

What I really love is the chilled out earthy vibe combined with the overwhelmingly in your face computer table..... my parnter is an editor so it kind of reminds me of my own home....
