Beautiful haunting images inspired by Venice, city of love and romance.....
Long before POWDER GREY was even thought of I have had a long time passion of the Noa Noa collection, layer upon layer of very feminine, very classical, very easy to wear clothing. No matter what you choose from their collection you can guarantee your onto a winner as soon as the garment/accessory comes home with you, its ready to form a partnership with the clothing you already may have in your wardrobe. POWDER GREY is delighted to announce the launch of NOA NOA clothing and accessorries in the store, due to open very soon.......

Managed to find a few minutes for a cuppa and indulge with one of my favourite reads, Elle Decoration magazine. After reading about this beautiful home in Palermo, I thought I'd share with you these gorgeous images.Warm tones of monochrome, yet with its conflicting dissimilar patterns and textures, they all appear to work beautifully together .........

More reasons to love this time of year, as you wear layer upon layer of different or all of the same type of fabric. In this case wool, mix it up or simply add other layering accessories next to a crisp white cotton shirt and WOW!.......another favourite to POWDER GREY

My favourite time of year is when the Autumn leaves are falling with their warm vibrant colour blanketing the ground, cosy lit fires inside a charming, inviting log cabin and not forgetting the luxurious textures of the Tweed fabric......... Heaven!

As you probably know, but for those of you that have just popped by POWDER GREY for the first time, I have an equal passion when it comes to Interiors and Fashion. I just feel that they go hand in hand when it comes to style,.... Where did my inspiration come from today? The logo of the gorgeous delicatessen 'The Spotty Dog', situated in Lauder in the beautiful setting of the Scottish Borders.

The Lockheed lounge by Australian Industrial designer Marc Newson. This aluminium clad lounge took Newson over 2 months to create and was his most celebrated piece in 1986.
I first saw this when it appeared in Madonna’s video “Rain” in 1993, long before I was interested in a career in Interiors. I remembered thinking WOW at the time, as I hadn’t seen anything like it. A cool solid powerful piece yet its elegant curvaceous curves looked like a mercury blob that had leaked from an old antique mirror. I don’t own such a piece, unfortunately, if I did it would set me back over a million dollars.
Although Newson created the Lockheed Lounge over 25 years ago its futuristic design will, in my opinion, always remain a timeless piece. See more of Marc Newson's work at marc-newson.com

Art and antiques dealer Susan Gaston and her husband Jimmy, are the master minded duo behind White Dove and Wonder where they have an ingenious way to recycle vintage shoe lasts. I'm all for re salvaging objects so when you come across a website like this one it can only inspire you to give what was thought a discarded object a new lease of life.......
