Black, white and wood...

The boy is back at school, the year is well underway but I am still floundering around trying to kickstart 2011. It's times like these I really miss a formal job. 

My son said to me last week, "You're always on holiday Mum because you don't ever go back to work." Ah sweet. And so insulting to the SAHM movement. What he doesn't realise is that I really need a holiday after his holiday ends. 

No holiday but in the meantime some inspiration to get me going on a few jobs around the home. 
I just love the combination of lots of white, lovely old wood and a dash of black. It's the dash of black I am aiming for in the next month or so and much as I would love to conjure up some black framed steel doors or windows I just have chairs to paint.  As you may remember I planned this little job quite a few months ago... then it rained for three months and I forgot about it.

I also have things to throw out (again), things to frame and lists to make. I feel better already.


  1. Happy holidays!!! Love that long old table in the first image. Inspiring indeed.

  2. We always need a project! It keeps life interesting :) Love that colour combo too. So peaceful yet stylish xx

  3. Long live the SAHM movement!! haha.
    I love that first pic. Just the type of kitchen I need, but I would like a kitchen with an island bench too.
    Hope you get those projects done! :)

  4. I look forward to your photos of progress, not being brave enough for black at all. I need rooms by real people rather than staged shots to show me it's possible. Here I am, paintbrush at the ready, hanging on your every word.


Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
