Peacock Chairs...

Peacock Chair: Spell Store in Bryon Bay
Peacock Chair: from baby is a sinner
Peacock Chairs and Kilim: Sugar High Lovestoned lookbook
My Peacock chair with red Silk velvet cushion : via Instagram
They aren't very comfortable and they are pretty big, but Peacock Chairs are so darn pretty, plus what a good excuse for a new cushion!!. Mine was a cheapy from the local charity shop/thrift store but there are some beauties out there if you are willing to splurge the cash.

The Home of.. Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour

Fleur Delacour and Bill Weasley in their Shell Cottage Kitchen :)

There were some wonderful homes and interiors in the Harry Potter Films. My favourite was Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's Shell Cottage, it kind of reminds me of my parents home in Wales, apart from the Shells.

The inside was shot in a studio but the building itself was actually built on Freshwater West beech in Pembrokeshire. Sadly it was torn down before I could move in. Such a shame... that kitchen was a dream !!

Fridges: What ever happened to good design?

Dream Kitchen? This beautiful eclectic kitchen is rounded off perfectly with this bright pink Retro Fridge
Smeg Fridge. I love Smeg fridges, my parents have one and it just looks so darn pretty!
Retro fridge: Drying herbs and open shelving..A loved and well used kitchen is the best 
Blue Vintage Fridge: Love that handle.. 
English Electric Vintage fridge: Love those Blackboard Walls
Do you ever browse shops and look at the modern electricals and feel a rush of inspiration? A desire to have these items in your home? No, nor do I.

Modern fridges... Sterile white rectangles with a big plastic dip for a handle and selling features like an egg tray. Well for starters eggs shouldn't be kept in the fridge, and secondly these fridges are a miserable excuse for design.

I would love to replace my sterile white rectangle for a pretty retro fridge. I love those beautiful curved lines and the designers attention to detail, reflected in those big chunky space age handles. The only flaw with these chunky beauties is the terrible energy efficiency. So saving hard for a Shiny pretty Smeg it will have to be :)

What do you think? Is a fridge just a functional item for you?
