Inspiration On The Wall…

I have always been amused by the concept of having inspiration stare right back at you as you look at a previously empty space on the wall! Confused?

The Key To Your Personal Space : Customised Products

The concept of personalising a space usually involves decor elements such as family photographs, home done art-work, family heirlooms and curios picked up on travels.

Glassy Beauty

Glass is beautiful. Stained or coloured glass is stunning! I’m loving a recent trend of home decorating with stained bottles, coloured glass lamps and tea light holders.
