Gilt & Tiles

Two things seem to have appeared a lot this week, those being gilt mirrors and vintage tiles. It has been a weekend of vintage shops and antique fairs and although I bought little home (for once!), there was lots of beautiful things to see.

I have been hunting out old tiles for a few months now to go in our kitchen that is finally being done in January. Victorian tiles will go above the Aga, like a higgledy-piggledy jigsaw of odd pieces. 24 down, 4 to go.

Journey

I think there is something enchanting about each one of these photographs. The romanticism of layers of colour, texture and design styles stacked up on one another, as occupiers have developed through an interior design journey. Like upholstery, these walls are created of layers and the one thing that makes the wall unique is the wallpaper that dresses the wall, like fabric to a chair…

Engraved Shapes

I’m like a magpie when it comes to vintage detailing and shiny things, and these two images feed my addiction visually. The collection of tarnished silver cutlery and trays, with their engraved shapes reflecting in the light is simply stunning. I’d definitely like to welcome all of these items into my kitchen.

Happy Monday!

Unique Touch

This striking living room is a dream come true. The eclectic mix of vintage furniture, embellished with textured velvets, clashing prints and brushed brick walls is a visual delight.

My favourite aspect of the room has to be the floral backed settee, it’s a unique touch on a traditionally shaped piece of furniture and is the perfect welcome to the room.

LOVE.

Magical

This crystal drop chandelier is magical. The gold accents from the full length gilt mirror with the metallic plant tray compliments the glowing light. I really like the combination of old and new in this dining room, perfectly balanced and welcoming.

Happy Thursday!

Perfect Spaces

This is the stunning home of designer, Erin Fetherston. Welcome.

Erin’s home is in New York and has drawn inspirations from her previous Parisian home, enchanted by a vintage charm. The flat has feminine touches, but combines modern and vintage beautifully. I love the luxurious fabrics used throughout her home and large windows that glow light into the apartment. My favourite rooms have got to be the bedroom and Erin’s dressing room – the perfect spaces.

Frame It

If you’re looking to inject a little difference into your home or office, then look no further than this! Framing wallpaper or fabrics that have caught your eye, is the ideal way of add a difference to a room without breaking the bank or committing to the design long term.

How will you decorate yours?

Intricate

Whether day or night, there is always an occasion for bejewelled clothing and intricate detailing. I love to study the detail put into little vintage quilted jackets and sequinned evening dresses. I like to think that detailed items tell a story of how they were lovingly created and beautifully worn…

Happy weekend!
