I've always liked the idea of furnishing my house with a mix of old and new pieces. In particular, I like the idea of finding old furniture pieces and bringing them back to life/up to date myself. A few months ago (ok, be honest Merrin, perhaps a year??!) I bought a few pieces to refurb...and they've sat under my house collecting dust ever since!! Since it is Spring, I've decided to get stuck into the Spring Cleaning (that will be another story!) and get to work on my furniture! I've decided it's all got to go...so I will be selling all pieces once I'm finished (I had to write that here so that I can't go back on my word and keep any of it! My hubby, Matt will be happy!!). So...I thought I'd let you all see my progress! Here are some cane chairs (pair) that I bought off ebay.

More of our Summer range for you to see! These cushions are hand screenprinted and sewn. The perfect addition to your summer daybed, lounge or feature on a crisp white bed spread. Court xo
You see a few people decorating with old glass bottles and I absolutely love it! My boyfriend Tim stumbled across a great find at a local junk shop full of big brown medicine bottles recently. After he came home with one I sent him back on a mission to get more...one for mum, one for Merrin and another hmm 3 for me. For $1.50 it would have to be the cheapest vase I now own, and more recently my absolute favourite.
Some bottle inspiration for you all! Court xo

I confess that I have an addiction to all home magazines...they always leave me feeling creatively inspired. The latest Home Beautiful (Oct '09) is no exception! One look at the front cover and all I could think about was SUMMER!! Love love love that umbrella and could think of nothing better than lazing on one of those couches by the pool on a Summer afternoon...now if only I had a pool, I could set this up for myself at home :)
This house...I love dark floorboards and white/neutral walls - a great foundation for displaying artworks and textiles - perhaps Magnolia Gray artworks and hand-screenprinted cushions?!?!
