If you follow me on instagram you will know i am little obsessed with the light…elements i love, blog, antiques, homewaresespecially as this time of year, the weather cools & takes the heat out of the warehouse, a golden glow falls on everything ~ and the softer light make our monthly photo shoots a little easier…

We photographed a number of big pieces last week and had a model who worked the product to her advantage .. (she was an instagram sensation!)

Decorative elements on our Bastille console table with zinc top.

 & we snapped quite a few small pieces too (♥ some that might make your mum happy next Sunday?) that are used as decoration when shooting our hero pieces.

Many people who come to the warehouse get a little overwhelmed by the architectural elements and statement pieces of furniture so its nice to shine a light on these smaller decorative pieces on the blog..

Since Saturdays have become by appointment only, I thought I would have more time to spend on the blog,  but its interesting – time is like space, the more you have – the more you actually need 🙂
And of course its Mothers Day next weekend so put that in your diary…if you are a particularly creative mother/daughter duo > Pia Jane Bijkerk is holding one of her inspiring workshops here very soon!  (more details coming soon but see Pias website for all the details)

For all of us lucky enough to have a mum or be a mum – enjoy the day – its time spent with each other that really matters… Hopefully there will be some autumn sunshine ~ where ever you maybe 🙂
