The truth is that every day is a perfect day to start re-working on a tired or outdated room, however there has never been a better time then now to look for inspiration. My favourite UK furniture company FADS are having a fantastic Pinterest competition, to help you create an inspiring board to build your dream room- just in time for spring!

Lifestyles of the rich and famous

We all love to live vicariously through famous folk and often take inspiration from celeb homes. We have looked at some amazing closets and gone inside apartments like Olivia Palermo but some of the rich and famous also seem to keep themselves really entertained in their own homes with some in-house fun that will have you wanting to be their friends:

 

Their own moat

 

Like castles of yester-year that used to have moats to fend themselves off from their enemies, apparently Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen think it’s safer to have a moat around their house, to fend off the paparazzi maybe?

 

A Baseball field

 

The song “take me out to the ball game” takes on a whole new meaning if you are Jerry Springer because you actually don’t need to leave your home to go to the ball game, you get your fix from your huge backyard. Does it come with corn dogs too?

 

Waterfalls

 

The playboy mansion is anything but average, and not surprising, Hugh Hefner’s LA mansion also boasts a zoo and a waterfall. Of course, every house needs those two things!

 

A casino

 

Okay, so Donald Trump might not exactly have a casino itself in his main residence by he certainly has his hand in many casino projects like the Trump Tag Mahal and Trump Plaza. I wouldn’t put it past the man to have a slot machine, a poker table or even a roulette wheel in his home, reminding him of all the cash he is making from his casino ventures. I may not be rich like him, but I can still do some banking at Euro Palace and feel like I have a casino in my home too!

 

A private island

 

I just dream about a trip to the ocean, a trip to an island, sipping cocktails overlooking the clear blue ocean, I’ve never dreamed about owning my own island before, but hey, when you are Richard Branson, splashing out $10 million on your own island is a must –have.

Creating a sophisticated interior, with furniture from FADS!

I am always on the lookout for new furniture stores, especially online stores- nothing is easier for browsing and creating mood boards for your new interior. I have completely fallen in love with the sophisticated mix of modern and classic pieces that FADS have on offer. I am in love with these pieces, and mixed together would help to create a gorgeous apartment interior!

I am in love with this marble table, this will last a lifetime, never date and always be in style. I always recommend an oval rather then a round coffee table, often the round table takes up too much space with not too much benefit.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sofa! It is classic but at the same time the exaggerated rolled arm is very retro- I’m dying for it!

In my opinion, every home needs an egg chair- they are some comfortable and trendy! I have never seen a Maroon coloured one so this is a must have!

The options are truely endless at FADS- I am so impressed with their huge range and fantastic prices, check them out here!

The importance of good Art!

I will never stop telling people how important Art is for the home. Not only do artworks create gorgeous rooms and help to connect your furnishing and homewares, but they also give you a chance to inject your personality. Many of my readers are wanting advice as to where to begin when starting on an Art collection, my answer is paintings online from Saatchi.

Here are some of my favourites, but explore their galleries- there is something for everyone!

“rosso Illuminare II”
Bronwyn Woodley Graham
Australia

437154-11428826-7

“Transformation II”
Sara Zin
United States

Both of these works would look stunning in a living space, over a sideboard or even framing a room above a sofa or empty space.

“An Accidental Tourist”,
Limited Edition of 75, 11 sold
Kevin Sloan

I am dying for this surrealist penguin print, would be perfect if I had a baby! It has some youthful charm about it-without being too baby focused- LOVE it!

But… as to my favourite? Well it’s below- there is something about works which speak to you- you know it when you see it, this one spoke to me and I may need to find a home for it in my home! :)

Lake view Furniture- Listen up UK residents

Finding dining room furniture is one of the most emailed requests I get from you, my readers. Where do I get interesting pieces? What won’t date? Are there affordable options? The answer is yes, yes, YES!

Hermes scarfs

I love Hermes! It is one of the gorgeous fashion houses which are always dripping in ever-s0-chic/never going-out-of-style style. I was in awe when I found these inspiring pics of framed Hermes Scarfs in homes! What a fantastic way to show off the gorgeousness of a wonderful brand so you can look at the craftsmanship everyday!

Ebay has a great range of Hermes Scarfs ranging from $300-$500 or go whole-hog and grab one from the boutique!
