Home Love....






I was just over at my good friend, photographer Prue Ruscoe's site having a sticky beak around at what she's been up to lately and I came these gorgeous shots of Mark and Louella Tuckey's house and boat which she photographed for Inside Out a while ago. Being a white paint lover, I'm always so impressed by those of you out there who go for a black painted interior. Black has such strength and presence and works so beautifully when paired with deep chocolate tones, whites and bold colour as seen here. Don't you just love it!

I adore that third photo down. What a serene and calming space.

I saw the first pic and immediately thought Mark Tuckey! I remember the feature and have some of these beautiful images bookmarked in my inspiration folder. Divine. You're right Shannon, so brave with the use of black, perfectly balanced against all the white and timber. So hard to get right!

Absolutely gorgeous pics Shannon! I'm still building up the courage to paint some walls black in my own house - such a great look! Tracey xx

Love is an understatement. That is house perfection. Especially a fan of their art work.

My goodness this home is beautiful. I adore the deep blue and white together. Also, all the decor accents are bright, fun, and kooky, which I love!
