*Bold with Pattern*

"The master bedroom has a very retro feel to it with the pink, tangerine, and lavender colour palette, the paisley linen, and the zigzag Missoni-esque pattern on the floor," says Mona Ross Berman, who designed this New Jersey beach house.
The floor is painted Salmon Berry and White Dove, both by Benjamin Moore.
In this Manhattan apartment’s kitchen, designers William Diamond and Anthony Baratta added a playful citrus pattern to bright blue floors. 
"Our clients — a couple in their forties with two little girls — wanted something zippy and up-to-date, but that still cast an admiring eye on the past," says Diamond.
The lacquered chair is from Room, the Saarinen table from Knoll. Microwave and wall oven by Viking.
The circular pattern of these black and white marble floor tiles by Ann Sacks give a graphic punch to this Washington town house by Hillary Thomas and Jeff Lincoln.
"The house makes you want to put on some Chet Baker and get all Mad Men with a pack of cigarettes and a shaker full of gin martinis," says Thomas.
Alla Akimova created drama in a luminous, all-white New York City bathroom by adding a chevron marble floor.
It's composed of Dark Emperador and Thassos marble and was custom cut by Manhattan Renovations.
Are you bold with pattern in your home?

*Hello October*

Well Hello October!!!
Am I the only one who can't quite believe it is October already?
The weather has been so lovely, sunny & warm lately that I am just not ready for Autumn at all!
The leaves have been falling from the trees but the warm sunshiney days have me fooled into thinking it is still summer!
Although I am so not loving the nights drawing in, why does it happen so quickly when in the spring the lighter nights don't arrive as fast on a daily basis?
Oooooh just think too at the end of the month we will be putting the clocks back & then we will really feel the dark nights - ooooohhh I am just not ready, I love the summer days & nights!!!!
Well something we have to look forward to is Halloween!

Happy October Cutie Pies, hope it is a great month for you all!

*Wooden Crate Shelving Inspiration*

 In this rustic bathroom, wooden crates have been turned on their side and wall mounted to create bargainous shelving. Try it yourself, but be sure to leave room above them for stacking towels. Use the insides of the boxes to place toiletries and loo rolls so that they're never far when you need them. If you want a more colourful look, try painting the crates in a bright colour, rather than leaving them bare.
