Curtains such a big decision don’t you think?

We have roller blinds but the slither of light at the side is waking us up, OK mainly me at 5am and I getting rather zzzzz.

I have to find a solution and I believe curtains will be it. But the thought is overwhelming as there are so many options.

Look at these below….I am drawn to them all, but I have to remember that it isn’t just my room alone!! And sharing is caring 🙂














A print over a plain just really changes the room so much and a heavy weight curtain sets its own stage.















At this point I do not know what I will choose but as usual I will probably come across something and nothing else will seem right. I am just hoping that happens sooner rather than later….















Isn’t this one a beauty?  I love a good blue based floral.














Soft and floaty is something I like but this linen look will not keep the sun out to the level I need it to.  Perhaps I can use something like this in the downstairs living room.















How have you gone choosing window treatments? I’d love to hear!

Modern floor lamp with a Hamptons twist

Miss Goodman Property

This is a gorgeous mirrored standard lamp that my darling friend gave me, yes that is right gave me. I had no idea that I would love it as much as I do, but it was mirrored….and pretty….so it had good bones.

I wanted a Navy/Indigo batik style print to make it more casual which suits my Hamptons Living Style.

Here she is before, her shade was surely ready for new threads and I was excited to try and learn to cover a drum shade.

Make me pretty!

It is no secret that I love the style of Ralph Lauren and when I found this design of his I knew it was ‘the one’, and now time to work out how you recover these things…can’t be too hard I decided I have done a lot of other DIY successfully.

So I Made my pattern, cut out the fabric, glued it on, pegged it to ensure it didn’t move, left it that way to try overnight.

I love my new threads!

White it is :)

With the detail of the fabric and how much I really liked the shape I decided that a off white bias trim would give me a more tailored look than creating a edging from the fabric, as I wanted the shape to stand out.

Made you pretty.

And here she is in all her glory. I must say I absolutely love this lamp how it throws the colours and patterns that are in the room around and that it is a constant reminder of a dear friend who travels a lot and is very Hamptons Living.
