Highlight

With the clocks going forward this weekend, I feel as though the last few months have just flown by! I’m looking forward to longer days and fresh flowers from the garden, burst of colour in my home highlighted by the daylight shining through the windows and opened toed shoes…rock n’ roll, I know.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

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.

Plated

So, I have decided to start collecting plates. Any shapes, size, colour and design and I’m going to proudly display them in my home. I’ve always been attracted to ceramics and the beautiful designs and colours that have spanned the decades, and constantly come across one of plates on my travels. Watch this space…

Happy Friday to you lovely lot, too!

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!

Below

I have always struggled with buying rugs. I find they’re either a little ‘try hard’ in design or have a tendency to look more shabby than chic. However, since moving into our new house recently I have started to warm towards the idea of welcoming them into my home. Not only are they practical, but it is the perfect way of installing colour and texture into a room while not being permanent.

Let the quest for a rug begin….

Sit & Eat

As a follow on from last weeks post, Hearty Home, I thought I’d collate some images of lovely dining areas. Whether you’ve got a separate dining area or one joined to your kitchen, I think that creating a nice environment to entertain in is important. I like to team eclectic pieces of furniture to create a quirky feel and add colour and texture with textiles.

If you want to see more of my inspirations for creating a beautiful area to sit & eat, check out the Hana & George Pinterest page.

Happy Wednesday!

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…

Merry

I have been fighting the urge since mid-November to start the festive posts, and now that December has graced us with it’s presence I can now roll out the inspirations!

Here’s a little taster of the beauty that I’ve been collating over the past few months and more can be seen on our Festive Beauty Pinterest page.

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Compact

As an inhabiter of small spaces, I am always intrigued on how people approach small homes and how they make them work for them while also keeping the interior beautiful.

This is the home of Joanna and her home is simply stunning. Believe it or not, her apartment is only 43 square meters but her clever use of furniture, light and arrangement of mirrors allows the home to work for her.

Compact, yet perfectly formed.
