We are crazy for colour!We call our style of interior decorationg "Indicana" or "Mexidian",as our primary inspirations are Mexico and Indian interiors.We also really love South East Asian styles.
The retro tins are mostly from Retropolitan,and one is from Madame Butterfly's.The scales and clock are from G's family,the mugs are mostly made by me-and a bit wobbly!!I'm not very good on the wheel.
Looking towards the dining room,just to the right of the back door.Cross from San Cristobal,hanging glass lantern from Istanbul,red garland from Traat,Thailand.
We painted the wine rack,the flower lights are from Thailand and they look so pretty when turned on!!We try to keep the wine rack well stocked.
The pottery urn thingy is from Turkey,the puppet is from Indonesia-G spent 8 or so months travelling through Indonesia,Malaysia & Thailand in 1990/91,before we ever met,the standing buddha is from Luang Prabang,and I made the "altar"he is standing in.
A corner of the dining room.G and I made the roman blind from fabric sourced in Thailand,the garland is from Traat,the cornucopia on the fruit bowl was made by me.The plant is an African Milk Tree-can't plant it outside,it just gets too cold and frosty here.
We consider our home to be the never ending art project!!!It's great fun,and one of our fave things to do is to have a Cosmopolitan Sunday and work on a project.Last time we did that,G stuck some lino tiles on the bathroom floor,I kept pouring the cosmopolitans,and how on earth G managed to do a decent job I will never know! I was well and truly passed out by the time he finished it.We make a good team!!!
We are currently working on the back deck;the newly red french doors have featured a lot in my frock posts lately.I have been assigned the task of painting all supporting beams black-it's a long process!
