Liverpool contemporary arts fair...UK's new modern art fair

UK's new modern art fair

Next weekend Britain's new international modern arts fair kicks off in Liverpool. Showcasing work by emerging and established artists from over 50 leading British and international Galleries...the stockists of my concrete works, Art at 88, included!!

Visitors will be able to view and buy art from all the participating galleries.
The fair will include visual art, photography, sculpture, ceramics, glass work and much more.

Liverpool contemporary arts fair is part of the cultural programme for the UK's International Festival for Business, which is hosted by Liverpool and will welcome over 250000 national and international visitors to the city.

So needless to say, I am very excited that Art at 88 will be showcasing my concrete bowls there!! And what's more, an image of my bowls even made it to the flier for the fair!!

So today I am sharing a few pictures of my collection that will be on show in Liverpool next week:

My collection all ready to go...

The Liverpool contemporary arts fair will take place at the World Museum, and opens to the public 3-6th July.

I feel so honoured to be showcased amongst so many amazing artist!
I want to thank Malcolm and Jenni from Art at 88 for taking my bowls up north for this amazing event and wish them all the best of luck!!

Kitchen makeover....Moodboard and wish list

Mood board and wish list..

Having been quiet on the redecorating front, due to some personal issues, I am now rearing to go again!! (And yes...the bedroom reveal is still to come!!)
 This time it's the kitchen that is getting a makeover!!

In fact, If you follow me on instagram, you will already know that the current state of my kitchen is a progress!!
But I have both the determination and the vision to know that it's gonna look great!!

I thought I'd let you in on my plan of action in this post, as well as sharing my kitchen wish list!

homebase silver mist kitchen paint , bleached wood and metro tiles with grey grout
 So, my kitchen units are OK (not dreamy fab....but OK),but I have a yellowing wooden worktop that needs some TLC, and I am retiling with white metro tiles with grey grout....
Oh! And the horrible red walls are turning a silvery grey....hurray!!
(See the before pictures of my kitchen in this post )
Not a long list of jobs, but I think the impact is going to be massive!! (And re-tiling is NOT a small job!!)
There are quite a few things I would love to add once my kitchen is re-decorated....unfortunately, money is very tight at the moment, so they will just have to wait....Anyway, here is my Wishlist for the New look kitchen:

Vintage industrial steel laboratory table from factory20
FLAP large analogue wall clock from habitat
CUISINE metal sign from Rockett st George
Large Distressed metal lampshade from Rockett st George
Hand painted blossom mug from Rockett st George
Rustic wall plate rack from not on the high street

Isn't that table nice?? Discovered factory20 by chance...they have some amazing stuff....Unfortunately all quite pricey....and based in the US! But dreaming is allowed right??
Love that large wall clock from Habitat....will be saving and waiting for a sale!!
Rockett st George is fast becoming one of my favourite online shops for home ware...Their recent collection is perfectly eclectic!!
And I love how you can find so many "unique" gems on Not on the High street, an online marketplace full of smaller independent makers and shops!! win the lottery!!

I am so excited to finally be redecorating the is the room that has been niggling at me the most since we moved in...with its horrid blood red walls and hard-to-clean tiles!

Also :stay tuned for some DIY's for the new kitchen as well!!
