Day dreaming again!

 So I'm looking for inspiration, I need to change the windows, (forgot to post some photos!) I'm thinking I want to change the store around, which of course caused some groaning from those I work with! Hello! Have you met me? LOVE change...Anyway, I got a little side tracked and decided to look for ideas for my new dream house...
Of course, my winding drive.

                                                          I can't decide on which facade?

And then I thought, I've got to have a sublime entry/foyer.
I'm loving the simple clean lines and then a little drama with the beautiful french chaise. I think for those nights when one must wear a ball gown, this staircase is perfect!

                                                   .  I think I could handle eating brekky here....

                             Kitchen ideas for my doting husband to cook said brekky in.

Okay, back to reality, I've seriously got to do some work...  I'm very busy don't you know!

 Hope you all have a lovely weekend, xxxx

Our very talented chef, Paul Frazer will be creating some delectables for you all!
Baked eggs and chorizo, Smashed avo on Leavain sourdough with Yarra Valley Persian fetta... Yuuuummmmm....or perhaps lashings of Lescure butter with preserves on sourdough... Hungry yet?
Look forward to seeing you!

Back to the store bits and pieces...... We've just recieved our new range of Le Creuset french ovens...SO very Gorgeous... Beautiful Mathias Provence candles (Hand blown pleated venetian glass) exquisite!

We've also decided here at Hamptons that we will endeavour to create some theatrics in our windows, so I'll be posting as they're created.. I've got a creative bunch of people here!

We've just hung out the washing this week!
