As well as being considered to be a romantic shade, I also find dusky pink to be a calming hue. In every magazine I peek into, pastel shades seem to spring up and I have also collated a Pinterest page for all the inspiring images I find.
In our garden, we had the lovely surprise of finding out that the bottom of our path is home to stained pink roses at this time of year! Lovely British summer time goodness.
With the change of the season, comes a change in light also. The sun is cooler but the warm glow that it projects makes all things golden. With this in mind, I have been drawn towards golden tones and how the light bring things adorned in the hue to life.
I’m off to Paris this weekend so thought that it would only be appropriate to share with you some lovely images of the beautiful city itself! I’m looking forward to a weekend of cobbled streets, vintage markets and sightseeing and soaking up the culture within my favourite place.
I once again need to apologise for my blogging absence, I have been knee deep in boxes and packing material as we’re in the process of moving house and relocating to a rural existence. However, the worst of the moving is now over and I am back and more inspired than ever.
I have still been busy in the workshop and have been doing lots of research and today’s post is a little taste of what I have discovered online. If you want to see more visual loveliness, browse the Hana & George Pinterest page.
Wishing you all a lovely week and thank you all for your continued viewing of my little virtual sketchbook!
Here at Hana & George, we have been finding beautiful images off Pinterest recently that are too lovely not to share! As many of you will know, I gain a lot of inspiration during my online searches and love to discover new blogs and to catch up with what other people are doing.
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!
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.
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!
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.
