Eclectic mix for a happy home

Last night I went to my lovely friend Nicky's house. Nicky is a textile designer, she lives with her fiance Ben, cat, Boo and they have created the most amazing house together. The kitchen area is open plan with huge bi folding doors leading to the beautiful garden. Nicky has such a creative flare, and is not afraid to mix patterns and colours to create amazing results.
I love the mix matched frames and interesting prints inside them. This YUM sign was from an old American cinema (how does she even find this stuff!).
Now I need to give Ben praise here because he found this cabinet on ebay. Notice the 'N' for Nicky. 
Everywhere you look in this house, there is something interesting, whether its the fabrics of the cushions, the wallpaper or even just the kitchen shelves.
Through the bi folding doors they have a huge decking and this gorgeous fitted bench, I wish I had taken a picture in the dark too as the fairly lights make it look really magical. 
This Josef Frank wallpaper is absolutely amazing, so vibrant, I would never think to use such a bright wallpaper but it works perfectly. 
I'm going to follow Nicky and Ben's progress while they continue to renovate their amazing home, so watch this space!

I hope you like x
