Happy Monday everyone!  I thought for the first day of the week I would just share with you the new Manuel Canovas collection ... I have just ordered it for the studio and can't wait to use it ... 


I really fell in love with the textures and strong colours in purple, lavender and lilac .... 


This French design house so know how to produce and design textiles and their promotional imagery is always stunning ....


I also found this interior of a restaurant but can't find where it is from .... does anyone know?  Love those doorman style chairs .... so elegant and tufting on the bench seating ... 


This is my little canape that I upholstered in Manuel Canovas last year in the toile collection ... I used studding and think it works well .... 


Now I know it is a bit early to think of sweet dreams but isn't this bed divine!  It is upholstered in a selection of Designers Guild and really suits the French Corbeille style.  The white is a perfect backdrop for these elegant fabrics ... particularly the cut velvet ....  


This for a little girls's room is so fun and fresh .... I really like the idea of mixing up the fabrics too and the painted floor ... 


I am more of a white bedlinen person but this does look magnificent .... what do you prefer ..... 





ok so now everyone is yawning and tired so go and make a lovely cup of tea or perhaps a hot chocolate, grab your favourite Charbonnel et Walker chocolates and head to dream land!!!!  Have a wonderful week and I will be back with some projects I have been working on recently!  Oh I have also finally joined pinterest, instagram and twitter!!!! 
 best wishes xxxx
PS totally addicted to Pinterest ~ so much fun!

What a gorgeous post to start my day, Frances. Just love the lavenders in the second image and the texture in the one on the left is fabulous. I'm a white bedding kind of gal too, but these amazing beds could just make me change my mind...

These are gorgeous! I'm having a love affair with purple lately...and of course I love pink. So happy you've joined twitter, pinterest. Will pop over and connect that way!

I also left a comment for you on how to find the cute pencils. Just click the word "set" that's highlighted in pink on my post and it will take you directly to the etsy site where you can get them. I can't wait for mine to arrive.

Happy Friday!

Thank you Francesco for shopping by m'y place,
I love your design selections, and as for that bank of Frenchness to dine at, what an experience that would be.

Thank you again for taking the time to leave such a gracefully beautiful comment as to my salt and pepper shakers filled with weedy-ness!
