Pillow Love: Maud Interiors UK



I have a weakness for pillows/cushions! I can't help it :) I have an entire closet filled with pillows much to my husbands dismay :) I can't buy everything I like but I can certainly admire them :) So when I spotted these striking cushions, I had to share them with you. Available at Maud Interiors these cushions are inspired by Morocco and made in Marrakesh. Designed by Sylive Pissard, the cushions make quite a statement in my opinion! The cushions are crafted from vintage kilims, using ribbons, silk screened  patterns and silk screened images of  Berber women.

To browse the entire collection, click hereMaud interiors is an online boutique offering an eclectic mix of travel-inspired, quirky, contemporary and vintage home accessories and gifts all handcrafted by global artisans.

So do you love them?

Istanbul Beckons...


I've got travel on my mind as I am heading to Istanbul in a few weeks. Yay :) Turkey has been on my list of places to visit for a while now. While there is so much to see in Turkey, for now we are focusing on Istanbul. As a family, we do a fair amount of research before we travel. However, we are not big on conducted tours. The Rick Steves Guide Book is a constant companion and of course some extra research on the web always comes handy.

I would love to hear from you. For those of you who have traveled to Istanbul, please do share your experiences with me. Any tips and suggestions would be welcome.......favorite attractions, restaurants, shopping advice or anything else that comes to your mind??

I am eagerly waiting to hear from you :)
