Nine New Colours from Farrow & Ball

{No. 282 Shadow White}
There are two reasons to be very happy today - the first is that we have all survived January, which has been particularly rainy and miserable this year and the second reason is that Farrow & Ball have released nine new paint colours! 

I'm a huge fan of Farrow & Ball and use their paints in almost all my projects. I love them partly because, like me, they are from Dorset and partly because they just get it so right when it comes to colour. The new palette includes some lovely soothing pastels as well as some stronger colours to tie in with the current trend for darker, moodier interiors.

These images show off the new colour collection so perfectly - which one do you like best? My favourites are the beautiful soft pink Peignoir, which would be the perfect colour to paint an elegant apartment in Paris, and the brave, strong Vardo, which would work brilliantly to create a cosy library room.

Homes Away From Home: Luxury at Bar Al Jissa

Following on from last week's post, this week I want to share with you some images of the beautiful interiors and design at the Shangri-La resort, Bar Al Jissah in Oman, where we were lucky enough to spend 5 nights in November.

The resort is divided into three parts - a family friendly 4* hotel, a beautiful 5* star section in the middle and then the 6* Al Husn, which is where we were lucky enough to stay. The hotel was beautiful - middle eastern influence was clear throughout and the rooms incredibly comfortable and relaxing.

The resort as a whole has a huge selection of restaurants ranging from local flavours and seafood, to Moroccan, Italian and Asian, so something for all tastes. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind for a few days in the warm winter sun!

Homes Away From Home: Winter Sun in Oman

Happy New Year to all my readers - I hope you all had a wonderful break over Christmas and are feeling refreshed and ready to take on 2016! 

We had a very quiet time relaxing in Dorset, which was lovely but the weather was terrible - wind and rain almost every day! Luckily in late November we had escaped for a few days of winter sun to beautiful Oman, where we stayed in the stunning Shangri-La Bar Al Jissah Resort and Spa near Muscat.

It was such a treat - the beaches were beautiful and the weather was perfect almost every day. I think these gorgeous pictures speak for themselves - I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for some relaxation and sun in the winter and don't want to fly too far. We spent five nights at the resort, which was perfect.

As to be expected from the Shangri-La group, the interiors of the hotel were lovely - I will share them with you in next week's post.

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas from Little Miss Homes!


I hope you're all having a wonderfully festive December? It's such a special time of year and I can't wait to spend next week relaxing in the countryside with family and friends. 
In terms of Christmas decorations, this year I've kept it quite simple again with a white, silver and blue colour palette on the tree and have filled the rest of the house with fresh flowers instead of going overboard with decorations. I just love flowers at all times of year and think that you can make them work as festive decoration too.

Thank you all so much for your support on the blog this year - have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and see you all in 2016 - we will be starting a large project outside of London in January, which will be a big challenge, but also great fun to share with you on here - Happy Christmas!
