Nouveau Spot

I was partaking in a little weekend procrastination when I came across this stunning image of these Art Nouveau tiles. Oh, how I would love these to grace my home.

I am always surprised by how uninspiring tiles can be in shops for the home and tend to avoid having them unless necessary, but if they were all as detailed and decadent as these lovely ceramics, then it would be a different story!

Hot Hue

….A hot pink wool coat adorned with a gold embellished button and Nina Campbell’s ‘Swan Lake’ wallpaper offset with a vibrant pink shower curtain. Yum.

Pink is featuring heavily this season, with a fabulous variety of rose hued coats adorning hangers why not introduce the vibrant shade into other areas of your home?

Combined

My inspiration for this week has heavily lent towards fabrics and their manipulation. I love mixing fabrics that shouldn’t go together but do, and appreciating the bold move to combine what perhaps isn’t considered ‘ordinary’.

The floral fabric against the bold green wall adorned with the ornate mirror & fireplace, the eclectic rugs against the lily pad bathroom and the attention to detail in the pony skin coat and the intricate work of the bird embroidery. All stunning.

Roll Up

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a sucker for a beautiful bathroom. I think a bathroom is an area in a home that can be a little more quirky and so they should be! A stunning roll top bath is quite simply love in cast iron.

Here is a little collection of images that I’ve put together to share with you all of my ideal bathrooms. I could quite happily lose hours submerged in bubbles…

Attitude

I sometimes find bathrooms and cloakrooms to be a little too clinical, but I think that they should be exactly the opposite – I think this room in your home can have attitude and really stand out. Why not add a quirky touch by decorating with printed wallpaper and adding bold mirrors and lighting? It’ll definitely get your guests talking…

Happy Wednesday!

All Tidy

I always find it a struggle to keep things in my bathroom neat and tidy – so many lotions and potions and limited spaces in which to keep them. I think that storage should be as stylish as it is practical and have come across these recent images as a source of inspiration.

I would love to hear how you have over come your storage dilemmas!

Move Up

Are you running out of places to store your things? I am and I’ve started to move on up! Using ladders to store your treasures not only makes a pretty display but it is also practical. Hurrah!

You can pick up old wooden ladders from junk shops and thrift stores quite easily and they look good painted up or left in their original condition (make sure they’re not showing splinters as you might catch fabric) and stack away. They look brilliant in bathrooms with towels on, in your bedroom storing your shoes and trinkets off or in your garden with plant pots on the steps.
