Outdoor Love

When we moved to our new home, I was fortunate enough to be able to have my own little studio/workshop in the garden and, with the arrival of Spring, it is a really inspiring place to be. On a day like today I open the double doors and have all the windows open, so I am pretty much working outside. It’s heaven!

Here are a few outdoor lovelies which I have been collating on my Pinterest page. Maybe I should plan an extension on the H&G HQ?

{Sorry for the blogging absence – I have been unwell for the last few weeks so have been taking some time out!}

Lounging Around

As many of you will know, whenever I have a spare few minutes I always venture over to Pinterest for a mooch. Recently, I have come across so many lovely images of living rooms adorned with books, beautiful furniture and treasures that I thought I’d collate a post on my finds!

Happy Wednesday!

Converted Flair

Welcome to the home of Kate and Andy Spade.

This stunning home is a converted art school which has been transformed into an eclectic home, whilst also preserving its beautiful history and features. I love the diverse collection of furniture from an array of eras and the unique flair that has been added to their home.

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!

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!

Attitude

I sometimes find bathrooms and cloakrooms to be a little too clinical, but I think that they should be exactly the opposite – I think this room in your home can have attitude and really stand out. Why not add a quirky touch by decorating with printed wallpaper and adding bold mirrors and lighting? It’ll definitely get your guests talking…

Happy Wednesday!

Jazz Up

It’s December! As it’s officially now the month to get festive (and not feel bad about doing so!), I thought I’d start the week with a little festive inspiration for your homes.

Whether you love to go overboard or keep things subtle, Christmas is the perfect time to ‘jazz up’ your home…

Flutter

When I came across this image on my Pinterest page, it made my heart flutter as I began to day dream of sitting back in that cosy corner and getting lost in the pages of the books stacked high.

Could you see yourself passing the hours of a weekend in such a place?
