Booky Wook

During one of my many internet snoops, I came across this book that pretty much holds the exact same philosophy that I do – why have beautiful things and not display them? Never Stop to Think…Do I Have a Place for This is an eclectic collection of images showing how others have styled their homes with the use of their treasures and trinkets. This is a must for my bookshelf!

Green with Envy

It has always been a concern for many that if you welcome a dark shade paint into your home then you fear making the room look smaller, and perhaps the wall to ceiling colour could be oppressive. However, these three interiors prove this to not be the case. Each room is bought alive with colour, textures and prints and the block colour is broken up by the art on the walls and the eclectic furniture that each room holds.

Two

Two years ago today Hana & George was put together on my sofa. The idea was to create somewhere that I could document all the images and ideas that inspire me as a visual keepsake. This blog runs along side my work as an upholsterer and I love the community that my ‘online sketchbook’ has attracted, it is lovely to find others who love what I love.

Thank to you all for your support & comments over the past two years, it has been a journey that I look forward to carrying on with you all and hope others continue to join along the way…

Wishing you all a lovely Friday

Selby’d

Welcome to the eclectic Manhattan home of writer & interior designer Rita Konig.

I have always been a huge fan of ‘The Selby’, and his ability to capture people relaxed in their own environments and this is no different. I love how chaotic and fun it is, the mixture of old and new sitting harmoniously amongst colour and texture.

LOVE.

Tap View

Last weekend I had a lovely weekend which consisted of pottering around in the sunshine and visiting some local vintage shop that are near. My find of the weekend has got to be this oil painted bouquet, which proudly sits above the sink in the kitchen. It may not be a window view, but it’s just as beautiful…

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Happy Space

I believe that you should make the area in which you work exciting, as well as functional…after all you spend the majority of your time within your working environment and I love to work surrounded by inspirations and loveliness.

With this in mind (and the move to my new workspace happening this weekend *happy dance*), I thought I would put a few images that I have gained inspiration from for my new space…

BLOG IDEAS

By My Side

I am on a quest for the perfect side tables but haven’t quite found what I am looking for yet, so thought I’d turn to Pinterest for some inspiration.

I like to have my side tables piled with books, photos, flowers and a lamp. and love the idea of having a rectangular shaped ones for each side. What do you have by your beside?

You can take a peek at further of my inspirations at the Hana & George Pinterest page, too!

Compact

As an inhabiter of small spaces, I am always intrigued on how people approach small homes and how they make them work for them while also keeping the interior beautiful.

This is the home of Joanna and her home is simply stunning. Believe it or not, her apartment is only 43 square meters but her clever use of furniture, light and arrangement of mirrors allows the home to work for her.

Compact, yet perfectly formed.
