Happy One Year Petersens!

On Friday, Darryl and I celebrated our First Wedding Anniversary.

How quickly it had arrived!

We made a long weekend of it: took Friday off, stayed under the covers (especially after our late night with Trevor Noah); had a yummy homemade breakfast (even made heart shaped scones, it's doesn't get any sweeter than that!) and then headed out. We made lots of time for my favourite thing - shopping! Then ended off the day with dinner and D's favourite - a movie.

Of course, there were frills in between... ending the weekend off with family and a cuppa tea.

To add to the list of spoils (one to be blogged about in the decor department hmmm) the 'Anniversary Shoot' happens in two weeks - aaah, call it the Anniversary month! *look out for the Domestic Bliss pics

What thrills me most, I won't only have him for the month - but "until death do us part". Won't stop celebrating that!



Breakfast is served





Gold Reef City and some arcade games after the Trevor Noah show




Love you Rog!

A Citrus Affair

My friend is sprussing  up her home a bit, and playing with red and orange against a white backdrop. So, I've found a workable vision that may help her - or you.

Here's the initial inspiration: white.



Then, red or orange - or in this case, red and orange with neutral browns.
                                                
             



Oh I love this next one - really maxes out the effect of red with white.




my new favourite thing, the open shelves (below), in similar shades so the eye is not distracted by all-sorts...



and then, pairing red/orange with grey (still with white too)...




 





 and the finale >>> if you're not as bold as the home owners above, add a single bold item or two, like this fantastic striking chair!
