I've left it ages again to blog but, come 2010, it is my new year's resolution to blog at least once a week. And I do have an excuse as have been relaxing in Thailand for the last two weeks without Mac. Bliss.
This blog is about, shock, colour! I'm totally in love with Tiffany blue since seeing the shots above in Country Living a couple of months ago. Ness Lockyer over at Marley and Lockyer reminded me of just how gorgeous it looks for Christmas. Quite unusual but it works so beautifully in Vicki's New York pad.
Although not the first time I've seen a tree decked out in pale blue. Here is London Tiffany and Co has sponsored ice-skating at Somerset House which means the most enormous Christmas tree decorated in Tiffany's signature hue complete with twinkling lights and the cutest ice skate decorations. Heavenly. Better still, there's even a Tiffany tuck shop where you nip in for an apres skate mocha and Tiffany cupcake courtesy of the Hummingbird Bakery. Mmmmmmmm. Love Carrie XX

Success at last! I've found the most beautiful Lumina pumpkin - it's enormous and the most gorgeous creamy peach colour. My lovely boyfriend took me out to Fanny's Farm Shop in Surrey and Fanny herself showed us a great array of pumpkins. Now we just need to work out how to carve it! Can't wait to make lovely velvety pumpkin soup either. I've used Delia's recipe every time I've made it and it's just the best. It will make you long for pumpkins all year round! CXX

As well as my fascination with gourds, I've also taken a liking towards mounted antlers like these ones from www.englandathome.com. Aren't they lovely, v. log cabin and would be perfect with my reindeer skin rug in wintertime (which I'm not allowed to keep out because it malts so badly!). Antlers also make me think of Moose Bar in London which has some seriously cool antler chandeliers all in-keeping with it's Alpine look. CXX

Where did the summer go? My last post was in August! Sorry it's been a while. Autumn is here in London and is one of my favourite times of the year. It's the chance to start getting cosy at home again...and Halloween, which I love. At the moment I'm trying to source gourds in London...I really want to try carving more than just a face! Wondering if I may have to grow my own white pumpkins next year CXX

I have a new favourite...I've discovered a Canadian interior designer called Cheryl Krecsy. Canadian Country Living featured her all-white Christmas scheme recently...it's making me feel festive in the middle of summertime!! XX

I can't believe it's July... I've been so bad at keeping my blog! Mainly because I've been outside enjoying the summertime, although July's had strange weather so I'm staying indoors out of the showers which makes it a perfect time to catch up with the blogging! Talking of summer, Ness Lockyer drew my attention to these lovely shots of homes in Coastal Living - they make me want to move to the seaside. They're so light and airy, perfect for enjoying the sunshine! C XX

Isn't this place amazing? I love the combination of the pure white with the sun-bleached wood - no wonder it's called the Boat House. Check out Atlanta Bartlett's fabulous website Beach Studios If you're a fan of the interiors I feature on Love from Carrie you'll be in heaven. And...the best news is that you can hire them as locations. CXX

Just a quick Sunday evening post to share these lovely lavender hearts. I was given a couple for my birthday last week and they're just gorgeous, I've put mine on hangers and my wardrobe is now scented with sweet lavender. You can buy them online at Retreat Home along with lots of other tempting things! Love Carrie xx

The countdown to my birthday has started and I'm terrified! Sorry that I haven't posted for ages - it's been pretty busy here in London! To make it up I found Peonies and Polaroids via Marley and Lockyer - the most lovely photographs for celebrating Spring (and Birthdays!!). Enjoy and I promise I won't leave it this long next time!

Spring is on the way and I spent most of Saturday gardening. I love seeing the bulbs coming through and can't wait to see the daffodils, hyacinths and tulips that we planted back in the autumn. It was a lovely sunny day today - Spring makes everything seem so much more positive! I always forget how much I love being in gardens, living in central London I don't have my own so rely on being in my mum's, my lovely boyfriend's out in the countryside or one of the beautiful parks in London. This blog is me dreaming if I were to have my own... C XX
