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…

Iced

In true British fashion, when we experience weather (good or bad) we tend to have an opinion on it! As we’re now experiencing a summer, I have been craving a lot of cold drinks and I have been adding rose petals to my ice cube trays before freezing to create beautiful looking cubes of loveliness! It is simple to do and is the perfect way of cheering up your glass.

Happy Wednesday!

Printed Delight

Even though the weather that we are currently experiencing doesn’t reflect the arrival of British summer time, doesn’t mean that your home and wardrobe don’t have to! Whether it’s clashing floral prints, a burst of colour on an upholstered chair or an over haul of all things bright and beautiful, here are a few stunning images to get your creativity flowing!

Hope you’re all having a lovely week and that you had a happy Easter….

Throw It On

The last few days have definitely got colder which has started getting me ready for the winter hibernation period! I love to curl up on the armchair with a luxurious throws or snuggle in bed surrounded by a wall of cushions. Cushions, throws and other soft furnishings are also a brilliant way of updating a room by injecting new colours or textures.

Hibernation

I’m looking out the window and it’s November. Actually, no, It’s June but it might as well be November.

This time last week I was donning my sandals and strutting around in a t-shirt, this week I am snuggling on the sofa under a blanket and my Diptyque candles are flickering away. When the weather is like it is today, I get in hibernation mode. I’m of the opinion that there’s not much better than the comforting light given off by my beloved lamps (I’ll go into my love of lamps in another post) and the sound of the rain tapping at the window.¬†There is something about the British weather that I like – the ever changing ‘seasons’ keep me on my toes and I quite like not knowing what it’ll be like in another few days.

As I sit here vegetating, I thought I’d share some warming images with you all. Enjoy!
