Light/Dark

The union of light and dark is one of my favourite combinations to play with in interiors. It can be dramatic or subtle, dependent on the colour contrast you go for and can be a way of making a real impact in a room, whether it be using paint, wallpaper or fabrics…

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Chintz

In my eyes, there is no such things as too much chintz! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know this to be a true fact. Whether it’s a new item of floral clothing or a vintage Sanderson fabric, I am like a magpie to the colourful and ditsy blooms.

Happy Friday!

Sweetest Pea

My love for a Sweet Pea blooming vase knows no bounds. I have always bought sweet peas from florists and markets in the past due to the lack of outside space, but this year I plan on growing them myself. The seeds have been planted and they have began to germinate…

BOOM!

Weathered

As soon as the sun shines, whatever the temperature, I have a desire to instantly be outside. As the nights have become lighter and the days of sunshine are becoming a reality I have been gathering inspiration for my garden seating area. I want the space to be relaxing, comfortable and to also merge into its alfresco surroundings…

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!

Cornered

I’ve always liked the idea of creating a comfortable nook, somewhere that you can escape in a book or in something creative. I am planning on making such a corner in our kitchen soon, along with a bookcase of cookery books and a lit side table where I can generally mooch about at the weekend with a coffee.

Here are a few spaces that have caught my eye on my visual adventures, granted not all are kitchen friendly, but they are just beautiful it would be rude not to share…

I have always struggled with buying rugs. I find they’re either a little ‘try hard’ in design or have a tendency to look more shabby than chic. However, since moving into our new house recently I have started to warm towards the idea of welcoming them into my home. Not only are they practical, but it is the perfect way of installing colour and texture into a room while not being permanent.

Let the quest for a rug begin….

Layer

These three images have been an inspiration to me lately and I find the use of layers in each image interesting. Whether it’s laying clothing and mixing clashing colours, overlapping of mediums on a canvas or adding interest to a room by taking something ordinary and adding to it.

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Soon

Yesterday evening, I sat outside in my garden at 5.30 and it was only just starting to go dark and the air felt spring – like. Bulbs are starting to come up, announcing that gardens will soon be lush green and blooms of colour will soon be with us. Until the time comes, I have decided to fill my home with spring time colours…

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
