The gypsy den...


Place des Epices in Marrakesh (Cheers blomoodeuse)

After reading the comments for the last post I felt I had been a little down on colour and searched for some beautiful eclectic rooms. I found plenty and this post was supposed to full of yummy wall papers and fabrics but during my quest I fell for these dens.

As the summer comes to an end in England I am once again dreaming about rich velvet throws, Kilim cushions,  snuggling up by a bonfire, and preparing for hibernation. Heaven !

I come from family that growing up were in love with wallpaper. Usually Laura ashley, William Morris and Sanderson prints. Not just in one room, but every room had its own print complete with matching curtains, trimmings, tie backs, cushions and bed covers. The wall paper was usually eccentric and opulent and suits my parents perfectly, they would not have been happy with magnolia.

For me though, living in rented accommodation for the last 12 years, I have come to long for white walls. My new house has a hideous feature wall in brown, that is made worse by the wardrobe shaped blue square on one side (soooooo Lazy!) that i will have to paint over. With white you can always spruce it up with Mexican throws, artwork, bookcases or cushions and the all important Houseplant. Even my parents are now starting to play it a little more "safe".

What do you guys think, are you confident with wallpaper or playing it safe with white?

Room for one .........




With no studying to do I have time for myself and it feels great, strange but great. Now when I pick up a book the guilt if its not a textbook has gone. I can finally relax. I am just re-reading the life of Pi. Such a good book.

Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last post xxxxxx Gabi

On The Road Again....

Okay, so I am not actually on the road but on the move again. I have lived in 6 houses in the last 3 years! It is getting a little tiresome, but I like to pretend that I am a nomad and I travel with the wind.

I have no internet connection in my new house until next Thursday so I may be rather absent until then so I apologise. Have a great week xxx gabi xxx
