Fabulous Floors

I've found the floor of my dreams from Ebony and Co. - unfortunately it'll have to stay in my dreams since it's slightly out of my price range. I don't have an exact figure (around the €180 mark I think) but it's safe to say that if you have to ask you can't afford it. This company counts the Clintons among its customers so if you've a lot of digits in your pay packet I'd recommend checking them out. Or, of course, if you just like admiring beautiful wooden floors - like this Whitewashed Antique Oak.

Bargain Alert!

Mosquito nets have become very popular in bedrooms to add a romantic feel - they're certainly not required as a malaria prevention measure in Ireland! Lidl is offering exceptional value with their mosquito net available from Monday 14th May for a mere €6.99!! Check the website or their ubiquitous marketing leaflets for more info.

Shabby Chic Chair

My taste is fairly eclectic (to say the least!) - from country cottage to minimalist and everything in between. I found this gorgeous chair on Etsy - a great online resource for handmade products. It's made by an English company called Bombus and although it's a little pricey at $520 (approx €383) + $30 shipping (on Etsy at least) it might provide some inspiration for anyone similarly talented to create their own version. Just take an old kitchen chair, your choice of fabric and some glue - sounds so easy but I dare say I'd end up with more fabric stuck to me than the chair! Might be best leave it to the professionals...

eBay Picks

I've found eBay to be an incredible resource - there's nothing you can't find on it! I've chosen a couple of mirrors that are currently listed on eBay as examples of the treasures (and bargains!) you can find online. Just click on the pictures to open the eBay listing in a new page.

Fabulous furniture at Minnie Peters

Bed at Minnie Peters

For those of us in Ireland Minnie Peters has an amazing selection of impossibly elegant pieces of furniture. She has an unusual French/Scandinavian influence (as she describes it herself) - you'll see what I mean if you go to the website!

I think I could live in that bed!

Thank you!
