Home

Welcome to the home of Devon Dyer, stylist & blogger.

I absolutely adore the playfulness of her space, with colourful blooms and textiles in contrast to her ‘grown up’ home accessories. Her home doesn’t take itself too seriously and is welcoming to the eye. If you take a peek through Devon’s blog, you will see how her home reflects her and her personality and this to me is what a home should be. Every house is unique and it’s the love and life that you add to it which makes it a home…

Sewing Haven

This beautiful shed is the handy work of Artemis Russell of Rust and the super cool Junkaholique. She’s created the perfect sewing haven in her garden by sprucing up your average 4×6 shed and adding her own touch. I am completely inspired by this item and am already plotting plans to create my own shed once we have moved!

SWOON.

Lit Mould

A few months ago, I created this post on how to create your own candles using vintage cup and saucers to give them a new lease of life. I am totally in love with the idea of also making my own candles using glass jelly moulds and including two wicks to make more of an impact. What this space as I rummage through vintage markets and charity shops to find the moulded beauties!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

Violet Hue

I have recently become attracted towards all things purple, adorned in this romantic hue. Whether it’s incorporated in your home or your wardrobe, it is the perfect colour to cheer up your day and to add a pop of colour.

I recently planted my window boxes for the arrival of summer (…even though it’s yet to arrive!) and I chose ivory pansies with a purple centre, blasting through the centre. Yum.

Under Beauty

I believe that we are all responsible for preserving history, and avoiding the effects of becoming a throw away society. With this thought, this weeks inspiration comes from the peeling of wallpaper and what beauty lies beneath. Many people strip the previous paper before hanging the new but these four special images highlight the past lives and people that have lived or worked within the walls that are papered.

Happy Friday!

Full Length

If you’re looking for decoration with an impact then a full length mirror is the ideal investment for your home. Mirrors are brilliant for adding depth to a room and if you also choose an ornate mirror, it’ll be the perfect feature in any room. Not only are full length mirrors chic, they’re also practical.

Here’s a little collection of images for you to swoon over on a cold Wednesday…

Suspended

Occasionally I come across beautiful pieces of vintage fabric that aren’t big enough to use for upholstery but are too beautiful to resist. This idea of suspending the fabric as a piece of art on a wall is simply perfect. The beautiful colours and motifs of the fabric is on show for all to see.

Happy Friday!

Rugged Up

I love mixing textures and patterns in rooms and a rug is the perfect way of doing so. Whether you like traditional or contemporary styles, a rug can add interest and lead the eye into the room. Rugs were always something that passed me by previously when decorating a room, but I am now on the hunt for the perfect vibrant beauty for my home. I completely love the blues and oranges in the second image…

Dotted Haven

My all time favourite ‘nosey’ website has to be Closet Visit. I love snooping through other peoples homes and their fabulous wardrobes, it is pretty much a girls dreams come true!

I was recently having a lazy weekend with Closet Visit and came across the beautiful home and wardrobe of Deborah Kaplan, who is a screen writer who lives in Hollywood. Her home is as beautifully eclectic as her wardrobe and I love the vintage accessories dotted around her haven.

Happy Wednesday!
