2010 - A Promise To Keep It Simple

2010 new ghost furniture range
I have spent the last few months reorganising my life and work. At the grand old age of 58 I have at last learned that Keeping It Simple is the best policy. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating simple, understated pieces for my new Ghost Furniture range.
I wanted to turn neglected items into something with a look of luxury without the bling. I have used colours that blend together so people can create a little room set all of their own. It is now all coming together and I have a feeling of satisfaction whenever I look at the collection. The photography has been kept simple so as not to detract from the designs. Now, let me tell you that the process has been painless and fun, what more can I ask?
The new range will be launched at the end January/beg February and I have a big surprise that I cannot talk about at the moment, all I can say is that it is a collaboration with a designer I know you all LOVE. Watch this space.
Now I can only hope that my customers feel the same as I do.

OMG! You are 58? Yeah, I stopped when I read that. You look gorgeous. I am 52 so I think my vote counts extra.
Love the new look. Love the old look.
