Inside my home – The lounge

Posted by Emma Patterson on

Hi! Come in, come in. Come through to my lounge. Take a seat. Can I make you a cuppa? :) A couple of weeks ago I showed you inside my guest room/office. Today its the living area.

Perfect Pins - Pretty Party Table

An Australian party styling company called Sweet Style has put together this perfect party table. Neon pink simple shapes on an off-white backdrop makes this scene simple but striking. And is that an igloo ice-cream cake in the centre? Is there anything about this party that we DON'T like? The answer is: no.
