Have you noticed how black and green compliment each other? The black seduces whilst the green just pops.
It’s why we decided to replace our dying doors with a simple, chic, metal alternative – this was the before picture.
This the after – it’s made a huge difference – the whole space feels bigger, more grounded..the garden now beckons.
And the black frames now link through with the crittall doors in the kitchen.
Using the following pics as inspiration, we’d like to paint the areas around the doors black as well…

I’m in need of distraction: It’s the return day of the crittall door fit and there’s lots of sweaty men and heavy drilling in my house. At least the doors have made it inside this time (she writes as something loud and metallic crashes to the newly fitted parquet floor). There seems to be an emotional kickback for days like this..You want to pretend that everything is totally normal…but you get to the evening and realise you’ve actually achieved nothing..yet desperately need a large vat of gin – because these days are in fact, the black hole of time suck.
Time to mentally check out..and what better way than to surf through Pinterest..it was the summer dress above that first caught my roving eye..a simple flowing line, easy to wear but with a modern silhouette and pockets. So I followed the bread crumbs and discovered Canadian designer Kaelen Haworth.
Deceptively simple with thoughtful cutting.
They’re edgy classics with a twist.
And always a joy to see they’re not designed by a man who’s a stick. Maybe that explains their appeal.
