Dreaming In Colours

Every Tuesday, I have ‘girls club’ – a weekly gathering of my girlfriends where we catch up, enjoy a wine or two, and usually watch Top Model or The Face. And every week, when they walk into Fabian and I’s apartment, comments are made about the decor.

‘Its such a man cave!’ – Thank you Natalia… My, what great observation skills you have…

Living with a man who lives and breathes cars and anything to do with them, you become very open to car paraphernalia. But not just a picture on the wall, but car anything will be out and about in our house, just about anywhere it can be placed.

We have a surfboard (and a simulator…) in our living room.

We have toy cars on our television cabinet…

We have a petrol bowser in our kitchen…

We even have ‘mancave’ as our wifi name… Have I made my point?

So, over the weekend, I took a stand to all this man-ish house behaviour, and my eclectic friends down at Coco & Creme helped me on my merry way!

I’ve been into the shop a few times before and love what they offer. You can tell the team understand colour and function, and add a personal touch to the items they stock in store. I love anything colourful and bright, or simple and timeless. So when I spotted these little beauties, I knew they had to come home with me.

The pillows I just adore. They’re full of colour and happiness, and totally change the room. But the deer is a favourite by far. Probably one oft best purchases to date. The man-cave will be less manly, any day now! Plus, an amazing little retreat for our guests whom stay over, being the spare bedroom and all. It might offer them a little escape from the rest of the house!

The Deer for the wall I just LOVE. They have a white ceramic deer head in the store too, which I had my eye on. I might pop in this week and take it home with me too! The colour is fab, it matches the pillows perfectly, and I think Fabian secretly likes it too!
