In The Bedroom....

Take a peek at our bedroom. The bed and antique Indian rug were eBay bargains, the Edwardian dressing table, Lloyd Loom ottoman and 1950's lampshades were charity shop finds and the snake's head brass wall sconces and vintage "Tina" print both car boot buys. The Lloyd Loom bedside table is one of a pair salvaged from a local skip scrubbed and spray painted.

The black crystal chandelier was a birthday present. The feature wall is covered in Laura Ashley's Kimono paper and the remainder painted in Farrow and Ball's charcoal grey "Down Pipe".

Today's outfit is a TopShop tapestry detail smock (£5 sale purchase) worn over a vintage Jeff Banks "W1 Boutique" blouse (50p Car Boot Sale).

Finer points:

The shoe boots were found in the British Heart Foundation, unworn and with the store labels still attached. The opaques are grey.

No outfit really feels my own without my trademark tribal jewellery.
