top ten pictures from the week ~ 19.10.10 and a 'species' named just for me!

Well here we are at another Tuesday (for some of us anyway). Monday kicked into touch thank goodness.
 It's not a day I'm particularly fond of...
 perhaps I should do something about my attitude!
 it's a bit of a mixed bag this week...don't think I've had a kitchen before
and we go from a quite formal outdoor courtyard... 
 to a shabby indoors with more than a touch of the grand...
 and you know hot pink's my favourite...
 but I'm very taken with all these golden tones...
 and I could see myself spending some time somewhere like this...curled up with a good book and a G&T...if only the weather would behave!
and I'm old enough to remember seeing this movie...at the movies!! Loving the brights...
 and the not so...
and the most exciting thing...get this...
my very lovely bloggy friend and super talented artist Kerri painted this in my favourite colour and named it just for me...'Euthora Magenta Martinus'
...and if that doesn't make me feel special I don't know what would! Spoilt I am :))
images this week are from 10 rooms, 16 house, brabourne farm, decorology, design sponge, designers block, desire to inspire, driftwood interiors, home, live like you, the decorista, the diversion project.


  1. Dear Kerry, Of all these images, as you may possibly guess, I have lost my heart to the Courtyard garden - so very stylish - and of course to the shabby interior with which I identify only too well. And as I write this, it is still Gloomy Monday!!

  2. Gorgeous images as always my friend, and how about that new species of sea fan - how amazing is that? Said specimen will be winging its way to you this week. Btw, you're in exhalted company - there's also a species of seaweed named after Tim Burton! Do I need to curtsey next time we meet for coffee? K xxx

  3. I always look forward to your top 10.

  4. So you should have a painting named after you, lovely lady that you are! Lovely images..I love the shabby chic one..Rachaelxx

  5. Great images as usual Kerry. Don't people live in the most interesting spaces?
