Roddy and Ginger

Hi there,

Thanks so much for joining me today. Q didn't show it's head yesterday. It is becoming more and more difficult to find suitable Q's to share with you, so I decided that skipping it would be better than showing you something that I wasn't really happy with. In saying that, I did spend yesterday thinking about the next Q and how we can tackle it - I'll keep you posted. If you know of anything that you think may be suitable for Q, I'd love to hear from you!

OK, shall we get this R underway?

Roddy and Ginger

My lovely husband (he's a builder) is working on a renovation of a beautiful 70's home. It has all the good stuff - it's open plan, has high ceilings, loads of windows and doors that open to an inner courtyard - with in ground pool (swoon!), it even has some fantastic (in a 70's kind of way) stained glass.

I often wonder when renovating and then decorating a home in a era like this how one would maintain some of it's 70's influences whilst still being modern. I think I've found the answer - Roddy and Ginger.

Virginia Armstrong is the graphic and textile designer behind UK based Roddy and Ginger. Virginia produces a fab collection of vintage inspired textiles and prints - "where you’ll find cheerful products designed to bring a ray of retro inspiration to you and your home."

Virginia's work is modern, bright and breezy with vintage inspired influences shining through - I think they'd be perfect for the house Steve is working on - take a peek:

With school starting in a couple of days, we are on a mission today to get all the school books covered. My wee boy isn't feeling to well today so it's a good reason to ignore the call of the beach, and sit round the kitchen table with scissors and cover-seal : )

I hope you have a great day!

See you tomorrow! xxoo
