There is very little in a master bedroom I love less than an upholstered headboard, and I have had my eye on one at Walkers World for a while now. On seeing this picture I have to admit that it was the headboard I noticed first, the Hermes throw a close second but upon inspection I realized there were many more things to love - that chevron carpet for one. Part of the allure of this sophisticated space is the fact that it is gender neutral, regardless of the women's shoes on the floor, it's a space both men and women would love to sleep in. Shop headboards and throws below along with some fabulous agate trinket boxes and bookends that would be perfect for a chic master bedroom like this one.

I have to admit I have had this scheduled for weeks now and never got around to it, I even entertained the thought of not posting at all because the date was well past but the collection entitled The Bloomsbury Girls which was revealed Feb 17th was too major not to share. The collection was free spirited with stunning details such as the hand painted boots and belts. Cashmere, silk and embroidered tulle lace were among the luxurious fabrics used while the colour palette was made up of pale raspberry, olive, sand, and blackcurrant. The softly tailored trenches and suede overcoats were painted with flowers in broad brushstrokes and filmy tea dresses were layered with long shawls tucked into belts and horse blankets and carpetbags served as finishing touches.

According to the press release: “The collection takes creative inspiration from the British decorative art of the Bloomsbury set and Charleston, the country home and meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals who formed the group.”

This past Friday The Know Me Love Me Foundation held a vintage tea party at the historic Fisherpond Great House. Fisherpond was the perfect backdrop for the vintage theme and the whole event was enchanting. The KMLM team was made up of a dynamic group of women and it was an honour to work with them. There were a number of tables located throughout the house and outside in the magical gardens each with mix matched china, fabulous flowers by John and savoury and sweet treats by some of the leading restaurants and caterers on the island. One of the definite show stoppers were Frances' cupcakes which are edible pieces of art and are as tasty as they are beautiful.

Chic; originally a French word is very prevalent in my vocabulary and I am often drawn to a space or outfit because of it's chic-ness. The word chic is defined in the dictionary as follows: casual and understated style, as in dress or décor, that expresses a specified trendy lifestyle or activity. This California Beach house featured on the pages of House Beautiful magazine has both rustic and traditional pieces making it not only comfortable but chic as well.
