Villa Blanca!

A lovely client of mine told me about this gorgeous L.A. restaurant called Villa Blanca!  She had bought back a bottle of wine from the restaurant and we are using it in our interior scheme for the bar area.  I loved the wine bottle as the top of it looks like melting candle wax.  It is so elegant! 

The interiors are sublime .... elegant and comfortable!

This is the wine bottle ......

love the bar stools ... 

Look at the gorgeous detailing on the columns and the flower arrangement with feathers ... just beautiful!  

and this is dessert ... what could be more perfect!  I am off to Brisbane on Friday to finalize details for Dominic's 21st birthday party in 2 weeks time!!!!  
best wishes

Putting on The Ritz!

I know where the heck have I been?  Incredibly busy and the days are sailing by!  However it is Sunday afternoon and I have done all my jobs and am sitting at the laptop with Andrew watching football and Georgie playing Minecraft and all is quiet!  So with glass of wine in hand I can show you "The Ritz" ~ more of our holiday and I am sorry if it is going on but I just love all the details of the interiors and the history and I want to share!

After our time in Paris we made our way to London and were met with 33 degree celius heat and the birth of the royal baby Prince George Alexander Louis (love the name not the least of which the second name is my own first borns!)  Well welcome to The Ritz!  I have never been so bowled over to coin an English phrase alluding to cricket!  Stunning! 

Everything was breathtaking and I thought I was in a wonderland.  The Ritz high tea is world renknowned and it certainly was gorgeous!

Upon entering our room I clasped my hands to my face and  with delight thought I had just walked into Marie Antoinette's rooms!  It was so lovely as when we arrived the doorman and porters were having jokes with Andrew about how much they love Australians especially when we are losing in both the cricket and the rugby!  Great fun and great banter!

The turn down service was exquisite!

Very French inspired with the pale pink walls and white contrast.  The gilding and moulding on the doors was gorgeous.....

Breakfast table!

Gorgeous foyer and wall panelling!

One day I would love to meet for high tea at The Ritz!
