If I remember correctly (which will be a miracle at the moment - lol), it was around 6 months ago I first saw Samantha's work over at the lovely House of Turquoise.
I think her rooms are so fresh, vibrant, and beautifully put together. I find her choice of colours invigorating and yet soothing at the same time. And, I admire her ability to strike the right balance with interesting accessories, eye catching art works, great fabrics, fabulous furniture, and differing textures. I also admire her use of fabulous light fittings and the 'clean' line she maintains in every room.
Oh yeah..... I also consider her a member of the 'Cushionista Club'!! She seems to have a really great knack for finding superb cushions. Love it. :)
