Framed Mini Swimwear

I have been working on decorating the inside of my Summer house of late and whilst I wait on some new treasures to be delivered which I hope will complete the look, I wanted to share with you some of the details so far, like the cross stitch lampshade I showed you yesterday...

Today I am sharing another one of my favourite decorations, my framed mini swimwear...

I used to be the swimwear designer for one of the biggest retailers of swimwear in the UK and I have to say I loved that job. I was in charge of five different ranges with over thirty collections a year from designing the colour palettes and mood boards to designing the swimwear and coverups. My job took me to LA twice a year, Miami for the swimshow and numerous trips to Hong Kong and China to develop the ranges. During my time as a swimwear designer, one of my suppliers used to make me mini bikini's and swimsuits using some of the fabrics from the actual collections. When I finally decided to move to a different area of fashion the same supplier kindly gave me a whole bunch of mini swimwear as a leaving gift...

The swimwear set I am showing you today matched perfectly with my old guestroom colour palette so I framed it in a box frame from Wilkinsons that I spray painted in a pretty lavender colour to bring out the highlight colour in the print.

The framed swimwear matches perfectly to my Summer House colour palette so it now hangs in my Summer House, a constant reminder of how much I loved designing swimwear and all the lovely friends I met around the world through my job!

A specially big thanks to Quize, Flora, Raymond, Tara, Beth & Karen for the best memories xx
