I love a Gallery Wall and have blogged about them a few times here. I have been meaning to create one at The Cottage for a while now and when I came across Minted.com and all the fabulous artwork and prints they have I was instantly inspired. I was a bit hesitant at first ordering online and shipping to Barbados but they arrived in 3 days and in perfect condition. I used 5 prints from them and then framed one of my Instagram shots from the "Only in Barbados" exhibiton as well as a gold foil Barbados print from The Frame and Art Gallery. See below my Step-by-step DIY guide on how to create your own gallery wall!

A few weeks ago I visited Sophie Domenge of L'atelier de Sophie at her beautiful home. The whole experience was incredibly inspiring. I left with grand ideas of painting the interior of my house white, changing out cushions and adding flowy curtains to all the windows. Sophie was the most kind hostess and it felt more like a visit with a friend than an interview for the blog. She gave me a tour of the house and I was enchanted - the house had an energy which cannot be explained. The house, designed by architect Ian Morrison ( one of my favourite Barbadian architects ) felt like a chic tree house. Sophie's design aesthetic only further compliments the architecture of this home.
This space is on the lower level and just off of the guest bedroom. I love the open plan living of the home and would love to lounge in this cozy space with a book and a cup of tea.

A few weeks ago I was invited to visit the new Swagg restaurant located in the South Beach Hotel on the South Coast. I live on the South and was very excited to hear of a new restaurant being opened. I wasn't sure what to expect but had checked out the menu on their Facebook page and was very impressed with the dishes and eager to try some of them. One of my best friends accompanied me and upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager, Cheryl Ann. She offered us the option to dine outside or inside but we opted for indoors so we could enjoy the air conditioning - Barbados has been super hot recently!
