Le Papier

Paper is one thing that we can all obtain, it’s generally lying around creating clutter. As a material it is versatile and inexpensive, yet can be manipulated in multiple ways…written on, stuck to, rolled, scrunched, folded…the possibilities are endless!

SWOON.

Journey

I think there is something enchanting about each one of these photographs. The romanticism of layers of colour, texture and design styles stacked up on one another, as occupiers have developed through an interior design journey. Like upholstery, these walls are created of layers and the one thing that makes the wall unique is the wallpaper that dresses the wall, like fabric to a chair…

Seeded

There are a few things in life that are too beautiful to simply to tossed away once their primary use has been exhausted, and the stunning vintage seed packets are one of those things. With their vibrant designs, kitsch colour ways and nostalgic beauty, they’re perfect to be grouped together in frames and proudly displayed.

Light/Dark

The union of light and dark is one of my favourite combinations to play with in interiors. It can be dramatic or subtle, dependent on the colour contrast you go for and can be a way of making a real impact in a room, whether it be using paint, wallpaper or fabrics…

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Layer

These three images have been an inspiration to me lately and I find the use of layers in each image interesting. Whether it’s laying clothing and mixing clashing colours, overlapping of mediums on a canvas or adding interest to a room by taking something ordinary and adding to it.

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Qualities

These eclectic images have all been playing on my mind this week. Ok, so from first view they have nothing ‘in common’, but with a second glance they all hold texture…from the pleating detail on the luscious pink¬†Balenciaga 1950’s evening wrap, the corrugated material holding the distressed wording or the two dimensional texture created with the pencil, each have their own textural qualities.

Art Array

What is there not to like about a wall adorned with art, hung in a ‘higgledy-piggledy’ manner? Whether there is a theme to the collection of works, or just an array of mediums and influences, I think that this way of displaying art is not only visually pleasing but can be a constant work in progress, build more and more over time from vintage market and charity shops finds.

LOVE.

Hearty Home

They always say that the kitchen is the heart of any home and because of this, I always feel that kitchens should be as practical as they are visual treat.¬†We’re in the process of collating ideas for the kitchen in our new home and I want something that is light and airy, whilst also being the perfect combination of style and substance.

Here are a few images that have been inspiring me for ideas for our new kitchen…

Deck the Halls

When glass is made into festive decorations and candle holders and the light reflects off its surface, the shades created are magical. I love to decorate my tree and mantlepiece with glass items as they have a beautiful way of looking different at different times of the day and, above all, they tend to be adaptable each year when colour schemes change.

Happy Friday!
