Monsieur Paul Bert looks fabulous on his new background colour (Dulux Baltic). Every fireplace in this old house has been rendered and painted a shocking beige - time to have some fun and add some bold colours around the place. This colour looks great with the old lining boards and floorboards (as well as a backdrop to M. Bert!).

Our plunge pool has just received a makeover courtesy of our new Stuck Up Art range. Stick it wherever, move it whenever, indoors & outdoors. This one is called the Escaping Lobster. Looks pretty good!

A view from the bathroom: echiums, a round plunge pool, fuchsia and lavender. Colours. Birds. Fresh smells. Love it.

A pair of 1940s toleware wall lights we bought in Isle sur la Sorgue - so lovely we couldn't part with them and they now shine in our old verandah.
