Muted Palette

I love the muted palette of this very tranquil home. Everything has it’s place and even though the light shades of the rooms would perhaps expect the home to feel bare, I actually feel that the opposite has been achieved. The quirky touches, filled vases and the odd pastel colour adds the perfect touch. LOVE.

What do you think?

Mix Tape

I’ve always had a slight obsession with stationary and my latest love is Washi Tape. Washi is the perfect accessory to any drawer and can be used for practically anything, from hanging postcards to your walls or creating art in your home. This week so far I have used it to make a birthday card for a friend and hang some notes up in my workshop…and it’s only Monday!

Houndstooth

I have recently been drawn to a mixture of smooth and woollen-like textures in houndstooth. There is something so classical about the print and looks fabulous whether it’s styled traditionally or mixed and matched with an array of other interesting colours and textures.

I love the clean lines of the bespoke tailoring again the tartan and stripe combination within the suit and the black and white of the houndstooth is perfection.

How do you like your houndstooth? Straight up or with a twist?

Attitude

I sometimes find bathrooms and cloakrooms to be a little too clinical, but I think that they should be exactly the opposite – I think this room in your home can have attitude and really stand out. Why not add a quirky touch by decorating with printed wallpaper and adding bold mirrors and lighting? It’ll definitely get your guests talking…

Happy Wednesday!

Crafty

When you spend long hours at work, it’s important that you’re happy within the space you work in. The space has to be comfortable and somewhere that you can happily dwindle away the hours and this craft room is a haven in my eyes! It’s busting with trinkets and treasures and everywhere you look offers a source of inspiration, through a variation of colours, textures and visual delights.

What do you think? How do you make your workspace your own?

Delicate Flakes

I am looking out of my window to a heavy down fall of snow, the delicate flakes spiralling down to the ground. I do love winter, it’s probably my favourite season, but it would also be splendid to have a room like this to escape to! I love the over the top (literally!) wallpaper, that graces not just the walls, but the ceiling of this bedroom, with it’s co-ordinating bedding and low lighting.

For some, this room is probably over kills, but for me it’s just perfect. Imagine lying in bed and looking up to such a view…

Favourite Mix

This past weekend, I enjoyed clicking through the online magazine that is Lonny, with their lovely interior photographs providing interviews and inspirations for all to see.

Here is a mix I’ve collated of my favourite images from their latest publication…you can’t beat crisp white linen and leopard print fabric!

Swoon.

Engraved Shapes

I’m like a magpie when it comes to vintage detailing and shiny things, and these two images feed my addiction visually. The collection of tarnished silver cutlery and trays, with their engraved shapes reflecting in the light is simply stunning. I’d definitely like to welcome all of these items into my kitchen.

Happy Monday!

Interior Motives

After all the excitement from the Christmas and New Year festivities, January is the perfect month to allow for down time and I’ve been busy on Pinterest gathering inspirations for a creative year ahead.

I can lose myself for hours viewing magazines and online resources to give me inspiration on my next upholstery pieces to work on, fabrics to choose and other interior delights for this blog, my virtual sketchbook. I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve collated recently, and if you’d like more beautiful images to digest, take a look on my Interior Motives board.

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all got lovely weekends planned.

Decadent Sphere

I was met by this stunning image while I was scrolling through a blog that I regularly follow myself. The image comes from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and graces the cafe within the historic building.

I love how the combination of old and new from the decadent ceiling and light spheres joins so perfectly together. I think this would be an idyllic atmosphere to soak up the visual delights that the V&A has to offer…
