Turned out it was. A decorator person once told me when a room is not working put something shiny in it (a mirror or something else glittery) and pink. Tried some pink flowers and my friend Jenny found an 1960's mirror in Hawkes Bay and put one of her photos in it. (Btw, if you're anywhere near Hamilton, NZ go to Jennys' gallery - Inspirit - it's really cool and bursting with art and homeware and clothing).
Here's another one of Jenny's photo-mirrors in the kitchen.
The washer just went on the blink so had to send the 17 year old to do a truckload of wash. There is nothing worse than standing behind someone on the airport security line who is transporting dirty washing. Except sitting next to someone who has just had a spray tan (it smells nasty chemically) Oops that would be me...
I picked the Number Three setting so I will see you on the other side - Donatella-done.
Love the entry way! Hope you have a great trip to NZ!ReplyDelete
Mrs Danvers as you know works for me in the capacity of fictitious housekeeper and wants you to know she wouldn't be caught dead in that get up on Elle mag. She's really into Chanel (through her friendship with Karl) and Valentino (sourced on the cheap from the outnet)ReplyDelete
Meanwhile pink is key to a cheerful interior.
Happy Christmas! x
I was just getting ready to remind Jody that Mrs. Danvers now cracks the whip and shoos away bush turkeys at your place.Delete
I love that Jackie's lipstick is exactly the shade of her dress!ReplyDelete
have a wonderful trip!
Hope your trip goes grand, even if you smell funny lolReplyDelete
Have a great trip and I love the runners on your staircase. Are they custom?ReplyDelete
No they are Missoni, just cut up so they don't match. no wonder you like them...ItalianDelete
Safe trip and welcome back to our fair shores. Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas.ReplyDelete
Happy Holidays Jody xReplyDelete
That is a dodgy look on the front cover.ReplyDelete
What a stunning hallway, it's so unusual, go on, how would you describe your interior style?
Kiwi random kitsch...or something similarDelete
Safe travels and much love!ReplyDelete
Safe travels! Have some Minties and Pineapple Lumps for me.ReplyDelete
Have a great time down in NZ Jody and please don't be stingy with pics. I only wish I had come up with Donatella = Done !ReplyDelete
Must confess. I love the smell of spray tan.ReplyDelete
And I used to think Nicole would look good in anything.
Me too. Though I wish she would let her hair curl and dye it back red. Don't like the blonde on herDelete
Love that pink!! It's fab with everything. Have a great trip and wonderful holiday! I'll be trying to figure out why I'm not getting your posts!!!ReplyDelete
Have a great trip and a very Happy Christmas. Love the pinkReplyDelete
Merry Christmas, Jody, and that hallway looks very snazzy.ReplyDelete
Finally catching up on my blog reading now that the Christmas preparations are coming along well! Your hallway is looking fabulous and the pink flowers look perfect. I love gerberas, such a cheerful flower.ReplyDelete
You always impress me with your style and fashion sense. I feel accomplished when I pick a good color for a room. But you manage to pick good colors, decorate the entire room, dress yourself like a movie star and all with great style.ReplyDelete
Jody, Have fun in NZ and enjoy the break. Love the pink and those mirror photos. Merry Christmas to you all! xo KimReplyDelete
Who on earth put Nicole in that getup? It's like the Vicar of Dibley set on the beach.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely NZ Christmas....enjoy!
like Mrs Danvers on a beach vacation!!!ReplyDelete
Oh you make me laugh!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas, Jody!!!
Love the bird silhouettes!ReplyDelete
