Hello... well it's been a while but it's not for trying, time just doesn't feel like it's not on my side at the moment! I like to think that being a full time, stay-at-home mum means I should have time to get my act together - tend to the kids, have the house under control, keep my shop (aneatlittleshop) ticking over, whilst still finding time for the things I enjoy doing but it definitely isn't working out like that at the moment.  Instead I find myself increasingly unable to keep up with my 3 yr old and 7 month old, constantly tripping over baskets of washing, bikes & scooters, and just generally thinking I need a big old lie down!

Rant over though as to be honest I wouldn't want it any other way, except maybe owning a lovely kid-free retreat like this that I could escape to once in a while when I needed some breathing space.  This Brooklyn apartment feels so calm and collected.  I just love the bedroom - the Jonathan Adler bedspread and pillow add a perfect dash of colour and pattern, and all that natural light flooding in is enough to make anyone feel uplifted!

Until next time...  :)

Form Meets Function


Sunday, 4 November 2012

Don't you just love it when you don't have to choose between form or function?  These beautifully simple Kaleido steel trays from HAY can be put together in any number of combinations and colourways, (I love the mint, coral, and grey) and would be a great way to store jewellery, loose change, and all those other little bits and bobs that roam free on your sideboard or bedside table.  They're so pretty it hurts!
