Suzy Hoodless has done some gorgeous interior design projects, two of which are in Scotland. The first is a ski lodge in Scotland, and the second [below] is a contemporary lodge in Scotland. Below that are the lovely wallpapers she has designed for Osborne and Little.

We started renovating our house 4 years ago - and it's still not finished! It also looks much more cluttered now than it did then - it's just as well I took these photos to remember how clutter-free it used to be!!
end of kitchen with Rocky
we are going to remove this old unused fireplace soon, to better utilise the space for displaying china etc.

As my latest obsession is to paint trees, I was searching the internet for more tree images for my paintings when I found this dramatic and well-designed tree mural on Ayos: Living ReArrangements blog originally from Design Sponge. The mural is by Sakura Snow.... very inspiring!
Mark Drake-Briscoe is a master of Chinoisserie who paints in this beautiful style with lacquer and hand-mixed pigment on furniture and mirror frames. He also paints large Indian Miniature style paintings and Western style tempera and oil paintings (featured on my art blog).

I recently stumbled upon Jonathan Berger's work while browsing the House Beautiful website looking for rooms with bold colours on the walls. I also discovered a brilliant blog called Colour me Happy which I am very happy about!
the first thing that caught my eye is the patterned fabric on the chair, above left

I love the idea of hand-painted walls. They are so unique and almost any kind of design can be achieved. Or you could have a printed removable mural as down below from Ecosalon.
