You know you have these whispers of ideas in your head for ages and ages… and then you flip to a page in a magazine and you see that someone else has gone and done it?!

Elle Decoration UK Oct 2008 has TWO of this images.

Ducks on walls:

I’ve wanted a trio ceramic flying wall ducks so I can spray paint them a happy colour. I think it brings a modern edge to the vintage pieces.

for myself for a while now but for what I want to spend on it, they are too expensive

Spotted in Elle Decoration UK all done in a gold colour, which instantly glamourises the ducks. Problem is, because they are a sought after item by country lovers, they can be expensive.

Murano glassware, all lined up:

We have a bar area which we have turned into our coffee bar. I’ve been wanting to start a Holmegaard collection to line on the back of this area which is mirrored to provide colour, interest and vivacity.
