Shabby chic workshop

Last night I went to one of the basic interior design workshops by collettes creations. Link to collettes Facebook page below.

We'll it really got the creative juices flowing and had so much fun at the workshop.
It was basically a crash course on interior styling and as I recently bought a house I'm stuck for trying to figure out what styles I like and basically were to start.
So i left with a fabulous mood board and some direction! 
Collette shared all the little tricks on picking and matching colours and for making rooms look bigger and getting the most out of your space. 

The workshop was out in picturesque Glenealy in co Wicklow at collettes fabulous house which I will share pictures below. 

As soon as you enter the house your met by the most beautiful chez lounge and a warm and cosy homely feeling. 


Vintage fair

So earlier on today I decided to head to the vintage fashion and decor fair out in the royal marine hotel in Dun Laoghaire. 
I love vintage ladies and I also adore the old style shabby chic home items and I knew I would find some fabulous tea cups so I decided to head along. 

I have never been to the royal marine hotel but it's a beautiful hotel and perfect location for the fair.
