Encased

I believe that beauty should be preserved, and with this in mind, I adore the idea of encasing special items within glass bell jars. The jars are delicate and beautiful in their structure, but when they are storing treasures they’re magical.

A bell jar is the perfect accessory to your sideboards and dressing tables…you could grace them with cacti, candles, your favourite perfume and flowers, what ever takes your fancy!

Happy Monday!

Floral Scent

The sun is finally shining in all its magnificent glory and nothing is more inspiring, in my opinion! I love to leave the window open and allow the wind to enter my home, bringing with it the scent from the florals in my window boxes…SWOON.

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you have a lovely, sunny weekend planned!

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.

Entertain

The sun is shining and we’re about to embark on a three day weekend, and for this reason I am going to divert away from my weekly ‘Friday Four’ to bring you a little outdoor inspiration.

As soon as the sun comes out, I love to enjoy this time of the year with family and friends in a beautiful park or garden. To get you all in the Bank Holiday mood, here are a few stunning outdoor party ideas…

Happy Friday!

Forward

In a few weeks time the clocks go forward and summer will have officially arrived. I love to celebrate this time of year by overloading my home & workspace with floral delights. There is nothing nice than being welcomed into a room by the bloom of a hydrangea or the floral scent of a hyacinth.

Here are two beautiful images to give you a little inspiration, I love the idea of using the tea leaves tin as a vase….

Lilac Lovelies

As winter is fast approaching and all traces of summer are slowly fading, I have fallen in love with these images! The idea of preserving floral beauty and displaying it around, as a reminder of our seasons. I think that the bundles hanging from the beams look stunning – cheap, yet chic!

LOVE.

Seasonal

Autumn is my favourite season. I love the dewy mornings and chilly evenings, I love the changing colours in the trees and the different light of day.

Why not celebrate the arrival of this fabulous season by picking the last of the flowers, greenery and autumn berries from the garden and adorn a vase?

Welcome

This past weekend I was taking a walk through the beautiful Somerset countryside and I stumbled across this stunning little home with a bubble gum pink door! The wooden gated entrance leading to the quaint cottage garden was framed by leafy green climbing plants, and the handmade shell wind chimes that hung from the porch sang in the wind…

BEAUTIFUL.

Pretty Flower

Do you want to have a wall space that can be changed frequently and add a pop of life into your room? A floral wall is definitely the answer! You can create the perfect floral space using picked wild flowers and you only need tape or some string (if you want to construct a delicate garland) and you’re free to get creative. I think this is a perfect way of adding a unique touch to any party…

Gone Floral

Everything’s coming up roses (and daisies, and hydrangeas, and lilies) for 2012. Floral prints are gracing the catwalks, adorning our interiors and blooming in our gardens!

Here’s a peak at a collation of this season’s biggest trend to date!
