Chic to Chic

Chic is not thrust up you it just appears I am finding it just crept up on me ,appearing one day,one persons chic is another persons Magino line and it's quite simply a line than cannot be crossed.

But who cannot fail to love Homebarns instant transformation of simple objects, finding inspiration in your home needn't be hard.

Old children's letter blocks and abacus invite intrigue and makes you want to be tactile with the objects, after all objects shouldn't just be for looking at. With letter blocks there is a living visual history and it's Important to pass on such knowledge and appreciation of objects.

I love the beauty and romance of the written word , people hearts and souls went into writing a postcard trying to capture a moment in time.

Practical objects such as reels of cotton can offer instant colour to your home and encourage your to build upon that theme.

The underground is a under used resource ( see what I did there)  the colours just leap out at you.

I even found Underground style at the YMCA where I stayed for one night proving that budget accommodation doesn't have to lack on style.


  1. I can crochet now! Takes hours but still.

  2. I'm hearing that Homebarn was the big success - love to hear what else you thought of the day

  3. It was great to see you, I never really got much time in Homebarn which I regret but missed a few things with having the baby with me. x

  4. Hi! I gatecrashed your table during Sian and Claire's 'Sh!t you didn't know that will make your blog better' talk! It was nice to meet you :-) x

  5. I had never heard of Homebarn before Cybher, now I want to move in, their stuff is great.
