Crisp Buds

For me, these two beautiful images are a summary of what is to come with the changing seasons. When the weather gets warmer, I love to open the windows in my home and to allow the breeze to circulate each room. The love the crisp, relaxing hues of the buds and bedroom.

SWOON.

All Set

As we’re about to welcome Easter and sunnier times, I thought I’d put together a little table setting inspiration. As soon as this time of year comes around, I tend to shed my hibernation layers and love to entertain and welcome friends and family over to celebrate this lovely time of year.

Here are a few ideas that I have come across that are as simple as they are stunning to give your table a beautiful atmosphere. If you’re looking for more table setting ideas, take a look at our Pinterest page.

Happy Monday!

Combined

My inspiration for this week has heavily lent towards fabrics and their manipulation. I love mixing fabrics that shouldn’t go together but do, and appreciating the bold move to combine what perhaps isn’t considered ‘ordinary’.

The floral fabric against the bold green wall adorned with the ornate mirror & fireplace, the eclectic rugs against the lily pad bathroom and the attention to detail in the pony skin coat and the intricate work of the bird embroidery. All stunning.

Full Length

If you’re looking for decoration with an impact then a full length mirror is the ideal investment for your home. Mirrors are brilliant for adding depth to a room and if you also choose an ornate mirror, it’ll be the perfect feature in any room. Not only are full length mirrors chic, they’re also practical.

Here’s a little collection of images for you to swoon over on a cold Wednesday…

Forward

In a few weeks time the clocks go forward and summer will have officially arrived. I love to celebrate this time of year by overloading my home & workspace with floral delights. There is nothing nice than being welcomed into a room by the bloom of a hydrangea or the floral scent of a hyacinth.

Here are two beautiful images to give you a little inspiration, I love the idea of using the tea leaves tin as a vase….

Artistic Bulb

I thought that I’d add a weekly feature to the blog that is a collection of four images that I have found through my research of the week and would like to share with you. The images inspirational value will differ and some may just be the occasional pretty image, naturally, but all the images will have something in common – that being that they have impacted on my thought process & have turned on that artistic bulb inside of me.

Here is my first four images to begin this Friday feature with. I’d love to know your thoughts…

Metallica

As many of you would have guessed by now, I am a huge fan of anything a little outrageous. Whether it’s bold & bright, sparkly or quirky I am generally at the front of the queue.

Recently I have fallen even more in love with metallics, not only do metallics make a statement but they also make me smile. There is no better way of uplifting a basic than with a pair of metallic shoes upon your feet…

Happy Wednesday!

Roll Up

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a sucker for a beautiful bathroom. I think a bathroom is an area in a home that can be a little more quirky and so they should be! A stunning roll top bath is quite simply love in cast iron.

Here is a little collection of images that I’ve put together to share with you all of my ideal bathrooms. I could quite happily lose hours submerged in bubbles…

Suspended

Occasionally I come across beautiful pieces of vintage fabric that aren’t big enough to use for upholstery but are too beautiful to resist. This idea of suspending the fabric as a piece of art on a wall is simply perfect. The beautiful colours and motifs of the fabric is on show for all to see.

Happy Friday!

Pastel Pink

As we are now approaching spring, and as I write this post the sun is shining, I thought it would be the perfect time for me to share a few pastel images that I have been storing up as seasonal inspiration.

I love the feminine hues is the images below, the textured fabrics and array of materials is simply stunning!
