Screened

Whether it be upholstered or wooden, I love the diversity of an antique screen. They can be used behind a bed as a headboard, in a room to create a divide or they can be tucked away in a boudoir to create depth and interest.

Happy Wednesday!

Qualities

These eclectic images have all been playing on my mind this week. Ok, so from first view they have nothing ‘in common’, but with a second glance they all hold texture…from the pleating detail on the luscious pink Balenciaga 1950’s evening wrap, the corrugated material holding the distressed wording or the two dimensional texture created with the pencil, each have their own textural qualities.

Sit & Eat

As a follow on from last weeks post, Hearty Home, I thought I’d collate some images of lovely dining areas. Whether you’ve got a separate dining area or one joined to your kitchen, I think that creating a nice environment to entertain in is important. I like to team eclectic pieces of furniture to create a quirky feel and add colour and texture with textiles.

Happy Wednesday!

1947

I have always been interested in print making and one day, it is something that I would like to learn how to do. What is more personal that a fabric that has not only been designed by yourself but also printed by your own fair hands?

As soon as I saw this image of factory workers printing in 1947, that I had to share it with you. Even though printing techniques have been modernised nowadays, I love the team work and attention to detail that the ladies would have had to commit to to create lengths of cloth, with each batch being unique due to the nature in which they were printed back in the day….

Art Array

What is there not to like about a wall adorned with art, hung in a ‘higgledy-piggledy’ manner? Whether there is a theme to the collection of works, or just an array of mediums and influences, I think that this way of displaying art is not only visually pleasing but can be a constant work in progress, build more and more over time from vintage market and charity shops finds.

LOVE.

Hearty Home

They always say that the kitchen is the heart of any home and because of this, I always feel that kitchens should be as practical as they are visual treat. We’re in the process of collating ideas for the kitchen in our new home and I want something that is light and airy, whilst also being the perfect combination of style and substance.

Here are a few images that have been inspiring me for ideas for our new kitchen…

Chateau

Not only is this Italian chateau from the 17th-century, it’s beauty and interiors are as enrapturing as its history.

Each room is decorated with a combination of French and Italian antiques to create a grand, yet welcoming atmosphere. Through every doorway appears to be visual treasures, stunning upholstery and ornate details.

SWOON.

Floralistic

As I look out the window, the rain is coming down thick and fast and I’m finding myself looking forward to the warmth and colour that Spring brings. I always try to flood (no pun intended!) my wardrobe, home & garden with the brights and florals that remind me of the season as a way to perk up my winter hibernation!

Structure

Over the festive period, I spent a lot of time browsing around in books, magazines and online at imagery and articles. With that, I thoughts I would kick off my first January post with a few images that influenced me. All of the images are different and they don’t all tie together but they all have attention to detail in common – the craftsmanship that has gone into creating every item is stunning.

Happy Monday to you all!
