Model Watch ❤

Christian-Jibril Photography

Eighteen year old Rebecca Chelsea Elizabeth Bailey
models for Vogue, Zara and Toni & Guy. 
A natural beauty, multi-lingual with a versatile portfolio, from catwalks to photographic shoots.
Stunning!

Vogue model, Rebecca Chelsea Elizabeth Bailey will be modelling at the 
'Real Women' fashion show by Anna Perra. 
Spotted in the audience last year, she commended Anna and her real women models..... professional catwalk models are  briefed to be expressionless - the focus is on the fashion. Anna's fashion concept embraces the women who wear the clothes, making women feel confident.

Rebecca loves the concept and has volunteered to support the charity fashion show at Ston Easton Park 14th May 2015. 
Anna is thrilled that a professional model will be supporting her 'Real Women' concept which she is developing as a brand.

Oak Flooring - Smoky Grey

www.thewoodgalleries.co.uk (click on image to view colours)
Choosing a colour for flooring has never been easier whether you're matching architectural features or creating a colour scheme - there are so many colours available today. Grey oak hardwood with a smoky overtone is perfect for traditional and contemporary interiors.
It would look fabulous against pure white walls, or in a kitchen with white units and a slate worktop.
Sourced from fully sustainable forests, a tree is planted to replace each one that is cut down.

* Monthly Mood Creation - Add Texture to Grey


* Once a month I will share with you how I interpret trends, use colours and select beautiful product, creating a mood to style interiors.

Add texture to grey, mix velvet and luxurious touches with matt materials. Focus on detail, gorgeous scented candles, glamorous tie backs, and a dramatic vase. Use tone on tone wall covering, reeded and finned textures for lighting and the ultimate textured wooden floor, with a plush rug to finish.

Texture adds excitement to shades of grey!.....a fabulous background for colour too, try adding cushions in a bright colour - wouldn't it be fun to change them seasonally.
