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.

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!

Bloom Injection

I love to adorn my home with fresh flowers, especially at this time of year when the flowers and plants that grace gardens are beginning to tuck themselves away for the winter.

Flowers are the perfect ‘pick me up’ for any sideboard or table, and is an easy way of injecting colour into a room. I like to place my blooms in irregular vases, upon books and shelves.

Happy Monday!

Rural

I once again need to apologise for my blogging absence, I have been knee deep in boxes and packing material as we’re in the process of moving house and relocating to a rural existence. However, the worst of the moving is now over and I am back and more inspired than ever.

I have still been busy in the workshop and have been doing lots of research and today’s post is a little taste of what I have discovered online. If you want to see more visual loveliness, browse the Hana & George Pinterest page.

Wishing you all a lovely week and thank you all for your continued viewing of my little virtual sketchbook!

Parisian Chic

If you love art, architecture and beauty, this book on the homes of Parisian Ambassadors is for you. The book is written by Alain Stella and the stunning photography is the work of Francis Hammond.

Such homes are normally kept behind doors, only for a select few to view, but this book has opened the doors and allows all to see the extraordinary homes within.

Wishing you all a lovely week!

For All to See

Sometimes I think it’s instinct to tidy everything away and to give items their own place within your home, but this week my inspiration has come from having beauty displayed for all to see. Whether it’s vintage books stacked high on mantlepieces or stunning textiles hung from doors and hooks, such loveliness should be out for you to admire and adore.

Happy Friday!

Colour Coded

Are you wanting to create a statement wall in your home in just a few hours? A colour blocked wall of books in the way forward! It is a creative twist on the usual library way of sorting your books, and is an eye catching way of creating your own piece of art at home. I love the imp actual effect that such a simple method can have in your home, and I couldn’t think of a lovelier way to spend a Sunday afternoon, than sky high in books!

Pen to Paper

I believe that documenting ones inspirations is an important process to carry out. As with this blog, I look at it very much as my online sketchbook…a place to sort what I find on my travels and collate them in the way of posts. I still like to fuse pen to paper and love to fill my sketchbooks full of fabric cuttings, quotes and other such wordings.

Do you keep a sketchbook? I’d love to hear what inspires you!

Lounging Around

As many of you will know, whenever I have a spare few minutes I always venture over to Pinterest for a mooch. Recently, I have come across so many lovely images of living rooms adorned with books, beautiful furniture and treasures that I thought I’d collate a post on my finds!

Happy Wednesday!

Curated Heart

Gone are the days when a shelf was just for storing books, they are now art forms and can be curated to your hearts content! I like to perch photographs amongst my books and add trinkets onto the horizontally stored books to make a feature of the storage in my home.

Here is a little collection of images to get your inspiration flowing…

Wishing you all a lovely week!
