Zoe Murphy

I was recently contacted by Zoe Murphy, the very talented designer behind these wonderful and unique pieces of furniture, wall art and textiles, who having only just completed her printed textiles degree has already been shortlisted for some prestigious awards, including New Designers and was also chosen as one of 15 designer to exhibit at this years Tent London.  Zoe prints on formica, fabric and salvaged furniture pieces and is already making a name for herself on the design scene with her work already featured in  The Observer and Evening Standard.  I love her work, which is so bright and colorful and a real breath of fresh air (or maybe that should be fresh sea air, as Zoe is based in Margate).

Big Sur - here we come

This is another place we are have booked to stay when we go to Big Sur, its called Deetjens - I can't wait it looks so pretty and old fashioned and the food is supposed to be really good too. There is no TV and no mobile phone reception - the perfect holiday!! As you can probably tell, Im a bit obsessed with the wooden chalet/cottage theme at the moment!

Austin - here we come!

We are off on our holidays to America next month and are travelling to San Francisco and Big Sur, then Austin and some other cities in Texas. We finally got round to booking our accommodation and this is one of the places we are staying in one of these really cute cottages at the Park Lane Guest House in Austin. I'd love to live in a cute little swedish style cottage like this.

(If anyone has any tips on places/shops to go to while we are in San Francisco and Austin please let do me know:)

Pretty Little Things

Lovely applique designs from Pretty Little Things. I love the mix of colors and textures.
