Bountiful Beauty

I have been consumed of late, trying to find pieces to make our living area look warm
I have know of her skills for many years, but never delved into
site, until today. I must have saved every image. This one in particular grabbed my attention.
I adore these pillows. All of her beds are stunning.
I have seen most of the images from this home, but never realised it
belongs to Whoopi Goldberg. I love the chandelier in the WC!

This Armoire of Whoopi's is a gem.

...and her bedroom is just heavenly.
I am going to try something like this beside our bed.
I have a console table, that needs a makeover, and a mirror in there
would bounce so much light about. You are so lucky Whoopi.

I also found this photo of Lisa Rinna's baby shower that Sue
had worked her magic on. Now, this is my idea of an entertaining area!!
White market umbrellas and loads of wicker and white linen, needlepoint pillows
...and roses and Hydrangeas. I realise now that my love for the shabby has never gone away,
it just matured a little. Maybe I could mix some of my favourite pieces instead of being so worried about what everyone else will think.
Anyhow, a visit to this site is a must for loads of inspiration.


  1. Sue is an incredibly talented woman.
    Her shop is very close to where I live, and I pop in whenever I need a cheering up. It is filled with gorgeous chandeliers, and all of the objects that Sue finds on her travels. She has a great collection of Architectural elements just stacked in the back of her shop. It's so much fun just to rummage through.
    These images are a great way to start the new year.
    Very inspirational.
    Happy New Year, Ness.
