Bygone Era

Stepping into this Parisian apartment is like stepping back into a bygone era. Since 1942, this stunning home has been left untouched by it’s owner Madame de Florian. During World War Two, the socialite left her apartment with the plan to return after the war, but never did. After her death in 2010, the first person to turn the key into this piece of history after 68 years was an auctioneer.

LOVE.

Tap View

Last weekend I had a lovely weekend which consisted of pottering around in the sunshine and visiting some local vintage shop that are near. My find of the weekend has got to be this oil painted bouquet, which proudly sits above the sink in the kitchen. It may not be a window view, but it’s just as beautiful…

Happy Wednesday to you all!

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┬áBalenciaga 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.

Romantic Touch

This weeks inspirations have come from a collection of images, which don’t at first sight link but do all possess a romantic element.

I adore the subtle colours, the precious textures and the calming effect that they bought upon me when I view them….

Happy Friday!

Textured

Whether it’s fabric, an ornate fire place or brickwork, it’s all graced with texture. I love to run my fingers along textured surfaces and appreciate their form. I have been so inspired recently by the touch and feel of different textures that I have put together a Pinterest board in it’s honour! You can check out the board here

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you’ve had an inspiring week!

Details & Fabrics

I thought I would expand on today’s usual ‘Friday Four’ of inspiration to show you a few beautiful images that I have found. I love the feminine feel of them all, with their vintage touches of fabrics, details and colourings. I absolutely adore the Parisian restaurant window with it’s gilt gold typography and the view of its stunning wooden bannister! LOVE.

365 Lovin’

Today is the first birthday of the Hana & George blog!

This year has simply flown by and I am still appreciative to everyone who follows and reads my little ‘visual sketchbook’ for their lovely words and support along my creative journey. It is flattering to know that what started out as a personal documentation, is now a source of inspiration and creativity, not just for myself, but for others too!

A million thank you’s and I hope that the Hana & George blog is somewhere that you’ll continue to visit and love…

Stuck Up

I really love this idea of simply using washi tape or tack to sprawl my inspirations on the walls at home and in the workshop. It’s organic in its arrangement and means that all the things that you catch your eye and creative ideas are up for all to see and appreciate!

Do you have such a wall in your home or workspace?
