Wonder Walls

Murals or sometimes ‘Muriels’ (my Mum had a friend called Muriel, she lived in Stafford). Anyway, murals are big news at the moment, not just any old wallpaper, but something that is used across a big expanse of wall to make a statement. It could be a cityscape, a forest scene, a never-ending road, seascape or night sky, pretty much anything in fact. They work really well in kids and teenagers rooms, you can even create your own with a favourite photo, but I have picked a few different styles for grown ups. Enjoy. Geometrics show no sign of going away and why would they when they create such energy Couture Geo Wood Neons Mural, £150 a roll, grahambrown.com Make a statement with a single b

Spring Flowers

April Favourites

I am in love with these trousers! The fashion assistant at Woman & home had a pair like this but with a red stripe which were fantastic, so of course I asked her where she got them from - Very!
