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.

Cosy Fires

Firstly, let me apologise for my blogging hiatus. August came and went in the blink of an eye! The workshop has been a hive of creation and I appear to have got lost within it all. Fear not, though! I am back!

I have been busy on Pinterest and thought I would share the images that I’ve been pinning with you! I can’t believe that September is here, roll on roaring fires and evenings of hibernation. I love autumn.

Golden

With the change of the season, comes a change in light also. The sun is cooler but the warm glow that it projects makes all things golden. With this in mind, I have been drawn towards golden tones and how the light bring things adorned in the hue to life.

Happy Monday to you all!

Layer Up

With autumn definitely arriving with a ‘thud’ I have begun to plan for the winter hibernation! I love to make my bed even more inviting at this time of year and love to team plain, cotton bedlinen with patterned and textured bedspreads, throws and cushions. I have put a little inspiration together to share with you all on how I’ll be dressing my boudoir for the chill…

Al Fresco

It may be September but we still seem to be graced by such glorious weather that I intend on making the most of it. It won’t be long until autumn comes along and we’re greeted by the burnt hues of the season, but until then, I am making the most of having relaxing dinners outside with friends and family.

Here are a few lovely images that I have found to act as inspiration when laying the table and for creating the perfect evening setting…

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….

Naturally Beautiful

As we’re now in the depths of winter, our gardens have no colourful blooms and the trees have shred their leaves. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re home has to be flower-less too!

I love to fill vases or tins with beautiful, full blooms of colour and dot them around my home. They’re not only welcoming and warm, but they offer a constant change within my current interior and always look chic.

If you’re looking for more stunning floral imagery, why not take a peek at my Naturally Beautiful Pinterest Page.

Happy Friday!

Above the Mantle

If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful fireplace and mantlepiece as a focal point in your home, use it to the best of it’s ability!

Use the shelf of the mantle to hold cute cards or invitations you’ve received, scatter candles elegantly along it or use it as a bookcase. The possibilities are endless. I love mantlepieces and fire places so much that I’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to them!

Here’s a little inspiration for your own piece of mantle perfection…

Pink & Green

As the clock are due to go back this weekend, let’s celebrate the arrival of winter with fur cladded collars, chunky woollen socks and knee length coats…and when it’s time to go home, be welcomed by luxurious velvet and warmly decorated rooms.

Swoon.
