Yeah it's the weekend and the winter school holidays in my corner of the earth.
To celebrate I'm participating in the 'What's Your Style In One Picture' challenge hosted by The Right Bank. The idea is to find one picture that sums up your design style. Well this is it for me....

This picture evokes so much about what brings me joy at this time....
The gentle sunlight, a verdant view, a place dedicated to relaxing in the fresh air, comfort plus, muted yet crisp colours, simple seaside elegance, a touch of whimsy provided by the sheer curtains. In 'short' a lovely space to spend time and gain inspiration.
If you've read my blog you'll know that the hammock is king in my world, well this El Primo.

Enjoy your weekend,


  1. I do wish I had space for a hammock! I am even wistful for one of those hanging Ikea chairs... It is so lovely to lie back outside and watch the stars, and the moon rise.

    What I CAN do is drag cushions out onto the deck, but it isn't the same feeling of freedom~

  2. You're so right about the feeling of freedom that a hammock offers, I do love your idea about taking the cushions outside though.
    The Ikea chair is a terrific option for floating and I've been loving the images I've seen recently where people have had them in their living rooms with a snuggly lambskin to line it!
    The bonus with this is that you can read, nibble something delicious AND hold a glass of....well anything really...and never miss a beat.
    I can picture you now....go grab the car keys, visit the Mother Ship [my name for Ikea] and get floating!
