This week I announced the winner of my Instagram #gallerieblovescolour competition. The winning entry below belongs to Rachel. Painted furniture is a true commitment to colour in my eyes! I was reluctant to hand over the amazingly soft Ziporah Lifestyle beach towel prize. A big thanks to all the entrants. I loved seeing how you…(Read More)
