Deco Off

When I came across these street scenes I was taken back by their beauty and originality. This stunning lighting display adorned Rue de Mail in Paris to promote Linen & Hamp during Paris Deco Off in January. The collection of drums in all their printed fabrics and papers is simple but impactual.

LOVE.

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

Whisk me Away

Recently I have been craving a city break. I love the adventure of a long weekend, soaking up the culture of other beautiful cities and the architecture and attractions they offer. There is nothing more relaxing than long strolls along cobbled streets, long lunches and visits to art galleries and historical sites.

My desire for a weekend away has led me to collate a Pinterest page dedicated to the beauty of city life in the eyes of a tourist. To view more lovely cities, visit our Whisk me Away page…

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Different Times

I have found myself inspired by light this week. The way that the evening sun beams through the windows and how things appear different at certain times of the day. For me the light of summer is always magical – the strong sun of the morning welcoming another day and the dull, romantic shimmer of the evening….

Converted Flair

Welcome to the home of Kate and Andy Spade.

This stunning home is a converted art school which has been transformed into an eclectic home, whilst also preserving its beautiful history and features. I love the diverse collection of furniture from an array of eras and the unique flair that has been added to their home.

Neon & Bright

Neon is a statement trend that we saw introduced into our homes and wardrobes last year, and it’s set to stay for the foreseeable future! I have to admit that I love adding a touch of neon to my outfits with a bright necklace or to my home with accessories.

The weather really isn’t getting anywhere close to summer so adding neon to your life is the perfect way of updating your style with a pop! Here is a little look at some of the neon images that I have been collating, but to view more check out our Pinterest page.

Happy Monday!

Mixed Up

My weeks four images are a combination of inspiration and beautiful images for you to take a peek at. I have always been very passionate about mixed media art and feel that it’s such a diverse form of expressing yourself. Whether it’s manipulation fabrics with paint, or photographs with paper, here are a few images which I adore…

Shading

Lighting is an inexpensive way of bringing your room to life. I love the dull glow of a table lamp or a large drummed pendent light controlled by a dimmer switch. I am a huge fan of a lovely lampshade and they can be as simple or outrageous as you desire! I have always been interested in taking a course on how to do it so that I could adorn my home with vintage florals and textured beauties…

Happy Wednesday!

Gold Mountain

I adore the eclectic variety of colours and textures in this space. The sofa with its welcoming mountain of cushions with their clashing prints, and the colourful and calming painting in the background encased in its gold gilt frame…

LOVE.
