Vela ♥️ Come Down To The Woods

This time on Vela ♥️ we have a very stylish fireside chat with the Queen of Peach Palace, Katie Woods. Pour a cuppa, and have a nosy... 

Describe your style in 5 words
Bold, eclectic, peachy, fearless, marmite
What is your favourite flower combo?
Eeny meeny PEONY mo!

Who or what inspires you?
Pattern, I'm totally inspired by pattern. I'd go as far as to say I'm a pattern junkie. The busier the better. 

If you had an extra hour in the day what would you do?
Learn a new skill. Having 4 kids means that I'm right at the bottom of the importance pile. I'd learn to speak french, play the piano or just learn how to apply my make up better!

What is your personal motto?
Go bold or go home!
How did you get into the world of blogging and Instagram? 
As a way to keep a memory book of the reinvention of the Peach Palace. I needed a way to encourage me to document its progress.
My account was only started 12 months ago, just as the plans were approved. It seems the Peach Palace now has a better memory book than any of my kids.

Which hashtag should we be exploring right now?
