Have a lovely weekend everyone, we're celebrating another birthday in our family. I'm in charge of the cake and not being brave enough to attempt Martha's Lemon Meringue Cake at the eleventh hour am off to The Cheesecake Shop to pick one up :)

It's a wet and miserable day here today so I thought we could do with some sun...

A Cleo Chair from Anthropologie.

I'm a little bit obsessed with trellis patterns at the moment and the citrus prints and frames are lovely.

A chirpy entryway.

Twin beds. A lot to love in this room.

A cheerful kitchen.

Patent yellow.

The office in Sarah's House.

The lounge of the cafe at Bergdorf Goodman.

Sofa from Sofa Workshop, yellow frame from Conran Shop wallpaper from Laura Ashley

Cameron Diaz's bridesmaid dress in Knight & Day. Saw it on the weekend and really quite liked it, 3.5 out of 5 popcorn kernels from me.

Today I cleaned out and reorganised our pantry. I'm appalled at how much food I had to throw out because of long past use by dates! That's what you get for being UNABLE TO SEE what you have in there because of the clutter and manic stacking upon stacking. So now it is organised in neat rows and my meticulously labelled containers chirp out their contents whenever I open the door. If only in the end it looked like some of these ones...

I like the light and cabinets either side of the door...

...and the basket of green apples.

The red door and fork handle are quirky touches for a utilitarian space.

The best 'til last, this Matthew Quinn pantry is glamourous and grand. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the pewter, but the best feature...the "secret entry".
