Brick vs Paint

I love the contrast of a painted surface against natural building materials. Painted shutters, door frames or just painted furniture with a gorgeous wall as a backdrop. Even very different styles of building materials next to each other can make patterns on buildings. Painted brick has a lovely texture and is a great way to bring a block of colour outside. When I have a house I’m sure I’ll paint every wall in the garden! These all catch my eye round London Bridge and I finally had my camera on me when I took my regular walk along the river, to take a few snaps of the images I see most days.

Pick ‘n’ Mix Frames

I love photos and anything else that can be framed, I’m such a hoarder! I have a lovely leather suitcase that belonged to my granny; It’s filled with postcards, birthday cards, menus, invitations…. the list goes on! Anything that I couldn’t bear to bin when so much thought has gone into the design or message. I also have a never ending collection of frames to display these memories in. I love walls covered in frames. There seems to be no need to hide treasured images when there’s so much room to display them. Frames were my inspiration for one of my wallpaper collections. I’ve used one of my designs for my blog background but there were quite a few in the collection. I’ve like to share a few with you. Which is your favourite?
