Come Home To Me: The Taylors

Us foxes have the good fortune of knowing some incredibly stylish, lovely and clever people. Though most of us don’t  own our own place we like to make the best of what we’ve got! Here are a few ideas of things you could do to turn your humble abode into a cosy sanctuary that feels just like you!

On my little jaunt to Australia I got meet up with a good bunch of lovely people who had been a part of my formative years. Liz Taylor is one of them and what a babe she is. We’d spent countless hours talking about life, boys, food and clothes.

12 years later we’re a little older and perhaps a little wiser but this lady has a weapon of a little boy, a brilliant husband, a new little Taylor on the way and a talent for making a house feel like a home!

We started with ham, cheese, tomato and avocado croissants… SWOOOOON!

Come Home to Me: the Lazenby’s!

Us foxes have the good fortune of knowing some incredibly stylish, lovely and clever people. Though most of us don’t  own our own place we like to make the best of what we’ve got! Here are a few ideas of things you could do to turn your humble abode into a cosy sanctuary that feels just like you!

 A few months ago now in our Friday Finds we featured this beautiful artist called Mark Lazenby he has some seriously amazing work that you can buy here. Do it! Every house needs a Lazenby.

Mark, his beauty of a wife Rachel and their amazing kids live in one of my favourite houses to visit because of how beautifully they have decorated it. It is fun, quirky and cool, just like them! 

Their kitchen, like many, is where some of the loveliest things happen, cooking, eating, talking, drinking.

The walls are filled with things that are a proper treat for your eyes!

Under “To & From THE ZOO”  is one of my favourites of Mark’s “A Brief History of Eternity”. You can buy it!

 “So Far” (below)  is by a British Pop Artist called Joe Tilson.

I missed getting a pic of their eldest Noah’s art work that’s up on the wall and is also pretty amazing!

 

Mark and Rachel’s mantle has loads of lovely anniversary pressies that they have made for each other, as well as cute pics of their little ones!

This one is coloured in sugar cubes for their ‘sugar’ anniversary, 6 years!

There are also all these beaut little touches, like this little defender of the lounge room hiding up near the ceiling!

I want a house just like this one day!

A house that is quirky.

A house that is homely.

A house full of beautiful things.

A house that celebrates the people and things I love.

That, right there, is a true story.

Happy Thursday … one day til the weekend and I get to hang out with that spiffy lady, Hanna, in Bristol!!

Whoopie!
