I have just come across a wonderful Blog Nunu Pepe, written by a South African artist, interior decorator & product designer. I was particularily struck by her post "Touch of Blue" and I have taken the liberty of reprinting the following to share with you as it touches a cord deep inside of me. I believe that your surroundings effect your world and everything you do. We may not be conscious of this, but on a deeper level life is better when we are happy in our homes. William Morris was quoted as saying "Have nothing in your homes that is not useful or beautiful." So in the spirit and soul of beautiful interiors.....enjoy.

"When you realise that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. (My bedroom was usually a mess at this point)Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration!!"
