black and white

What a wonderful surprise to wake up this morning and see my blog on Madame Herve's Sparkling Blog Update. Thank you , Tilda.

I've spent the last couple of nights thinking about the redesign for my blog. I decided to create an inspiration board to help me focus my thoughts and ideas. I was amazed at how much this little exercise taught me about my own design taste.

Apparently I like black and its variations and white and its variations but not much colour in between. (Makes sense when I look at my house.) I'm also drawn to branches, decaying flowers and leaves, antlers, feathers, ceramics, baskets and wood. Today, armed with this fresh new knowledge I went around the house and edited. Away with the things I don't like and in with the things I do including branches from the backyard.
