No Plain Jane

I can't stop staring at Jane Coslicks styling. She sure has a way of putting it together just right. I especially love the bedroom featured here. Jane likes to use found objects for purposes other than the original, like using an old door for a bedhead. I just love her approach to decorating and hope you enjoy these examples of her work on this bright Monday. Smiles xx

  3. Your blog stopped me in my blogging when
    I saw that we were both focusing on yellow, blue and white. Synchronicity it is. Love all the faded paint. thanks

  5. Love, love, love it. All! I want to live there, wherever it is. The bedroom is especially lovely. The aqua floor is so cool. And the appliances in the kitchen make me want to get rid of my white frig and stove!

  16. Hi Simone
    When I finally find my home by the sea, the yellow dresser would be perfect and the retro kitchen - WOW ! My fridge has given up the ghost and I would truly love a retro SMEG, but Santa doesn't have the funds this year!

  32. My fav is the kitchen with blue appliances. They would be perfect for my kitchen, but just not affordable for me right now. It's on my wish list though.
