It's been another hectic couple of weeks here, house hunting, job hunting, and generally trying to get settled in after moving back to the UK after spending 9 years in Australia. I am pleased to say I have now found a new job (hooray) and a new home (double hooray), I think.... it will seem strange owning a home again, and having to put in a full working week. However, after having a 17 year career in I.T, I am proud and happy to be looking forward to finally working in an industry that I have always been passionate about.... Design!
You can follow my trials and tribulations on this blog over the next few months and see how I get on with trying to balance working and family life.
Red is not a colour I use much when decorating. However, I have noticed it is used a lot more on this side of the globe than in Australia. Possibly due to the difference in the light, although I am hoping someone with a heap of knowledge on colour is going to respond to this post and tell me the actual reason. I chose the following images as I have begun to appreciate red a lot more since being in the UK. I've really noticed what an amazing 'pop' of colour it can add when used sparingly in decorating and it really draws the eye to a focal point in design and in photography. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do...

Red is warm, red is passionate, red is attention seeking, red is also welcoming.
