One of the most important things I have learned in life is to praise God through every experience I face, whether it be good or bad.  Not only does it bring peace - it lifts and strengthens!

My friend Leslie, owner of the Houston based company Segreto Finshes, painted a client's favorite wine label in a barrel ceiling in a wine room. Isn’t this a splendid idea?

My Dream Holiday Home!







One of my favorite blogs that I derive inspiration from, is Vicky's home, where I often find some hidden treasures! Such a treasure is this gorgeous country home in Cantabria. Completely

different style from this house in Cantabria that I recently blogged about, but oh! so girly

and romantic! I have to admit that when I'm dreaming of owing a holiday house in the

country (one day I will my friends, one day) this is exactly what I have in mind!

Relaxation Point





Now, this is the place which I have in mind when I wish to be left alone to read a book

and enjoy a cup of coffee all by myself. No fuss, no kids allowed, not even hubby!

This weekend just relax, let yourself go and do nothing if that's a possibility!

Simple Country...


Living well is knowing what brings you comfort.  I love heirloom pieces that have history and charm.
I love casual placements of items that have a story.  
When home's have an intimate charm, it allows others to feel at ease.

I'm a strong believer in allowing your personal comfort to fill your home!

Hope you're enjoying beautiful Spring weather!

A kitchen designed for a Belgian castle


I would love to share with you today some pictures (they are not professional taken!) of a kitchen we recently installed in a Belgian castle.
Peculiar to castles are the tall ceilings. This room has a ceiling height of about 4 meters (13 feet).
This kitchen is completely custom made, according to time-honored techniques and traditions.

The kitchen is executed in light stained oak. For the countertops, kitchen cooker wall and floor is chosen for a carrara marble.
All kitchen appliances are built in.
