I thought I would show you some more of Carpe Diem. I apologise for the quality of the pictures, but I am not the best photographer in the world. Above is the headboard in the forepeak (main bedroom for those not familiar with nautical terms!). Pete found this in the attic of an old hotel that he was doing up. I think it was probably some type of ceiling moulding, but doesn't it look great as a headboard. I keep saying the one day I am going to pick the detail out in gold. Everyone takes the mickey out of me for my 'boudoir' but I think they are just secretly jealous!
This is the splashback tile behind the sink in the heads. Unfortunately you cannot see too well, but the colours are magnificent. When I first met Pete, he had just started fitting out Carpe Diem and this was my first Christmas present to him. (See, even in the beginning I was marking out my style!) Dolphins are a bit of a theme on the yacht and we have had some lovely North Sea crossings accompanied by real dolphins, which is a really special situation to be a part of.
