Fifty Shades of Grey inspired boudoir

Want to bring Fifty Shades of Grey inspiration into your boudoir?

Get this luxurious look by combining beautiful materials and textures – a bespoke leather headboard with Swarovski buttons, stunning vintage mirror wall paper offset by the Beat Tall pendant by Tom Dixon. The copper inner gives a lovely pop of colour and warm seductive glow.

Soften the look further with sheer metallic grey voiles combined with silk curtains, and silver beaded tie backs. When the colour palette is limited, add interest by layering textures and finishes. A scattering of red rose petals for fragrance and colour, indulge in aromatherapy oils and the rest is up to you!

flippin’ fantastic

As you get over the pancake-fest that was yesterday I thought I’d share this lovely photo from taken in the Pupil Teaching Kitchen at East Sheen Primary School. An Amo Espaco voluntary community project from 2010,  I will tell you more in the future, when a gap appears in the spring renovation excitement currently going on, and I have time to spend on lovely social media again!

As a parent of two girls at East Sheen Primary when the project to create a Pupil Teaching Kitchen arose it was something I couldn’t resist. And with the collaboration of an enthusiastic and talented group of parents and Headship staff, PTA fund raising and some incredible sponsorship by Neff and Robert Dyas in September 2010, our Teaching Kitchen was born!


It is wonderful to see this resource constantly delivering fantastic learning experiences in a fun environment, with the latest technology, giving these students confidence and independence in the kitchen and a life skill to boot!

Now, where’s that chocolate…! Lent…what Lent!
