I am always looking out for inspirational pics, from cute cakes to gorgeous interiors! On a recent search I came across the wonderful Trine Thorsen, a Norwegian photographer whose beautiful images are exquisite and full of eye candy.

She also has a blog, So mee, where you can find even more of her delightful pics. I could spend hours looking at them all!

Have a sweet day!

Outdoor living room

Outdoor living room by Green Gate


With all the lovely weather we have had recently my mind has been buzzing with ideas for my outdoor space. I would love to create an outdoor living room on the back patio next to my garden shed. A stylish, comfortable place for casual dining and relaxing.

I want to make sure my space transitions gracefully from my alfresco eating area on the patio near the house, to the lawn, to the outdoor living room. So, I'm going to go for a similar colour palette to my alfresco dining but will tone down the red and green and add more white to make a softer pastel palette.

On my wish list for an outdoor living room is a white bench with lots of scatter cushions, subtle lighting, a bistro table and chairs, and an open fire. I dream of snuggling up on the bench at night toasting marshmallows!

Here are a few of my inspirational tears for colour and theme:

A touch of lavender and lilac

I am loving the accents of lavender and lilac in the above pics. They add a subtle feminine touch to otherwise quite neutral colour schemes.

The chair in the fist pic has me pining for a steel stool from Bailey's Home and Garden for my craft room. I have a vintage 1930's stainless steel filing cabinet in my craft room already and think the stool would be a perfect fit!

I don't have much lilac or lavender in my home but all the flowers in my garden are either purple or white coloured, from the large bushes of silver Anouk Lavender to the purple flowering herb pots of chives, sage and rosemary. White petunia's, purple and white Dwarf Lupins and Aubrietas add color to my borders. More of this to come later.

Have a sweet day!
