Whether it be upholstered or wooden, I love the diversity of an antique screen. They can be used behind a bed as a headboard, in a room to create a divide or they can be tucked away in a boudoir to create depth and interest.
I was partaking in a little weekend procrastination when I came across this stunning image of these Art Nouveau tiles. Oh, how I would love these to grace my home.
I am always surprised by how uninspiring tiles can be in shops for the home and tend to avoid having them unless necessary, but if they were all as detailed and decadent as these lovely ceramics, then it would be a different story!
I love subtle blue pastels in this collection of images, it’s calming whilst also making an impact within the surroundings. The hues are bought alive with the contrast of creams and whites, whether introduced by fabrics and textures or light.
Welcome to the home of Devon Dyer, stylist & blogger.
I absolutely adore the playfulness of her space, with colourful blooms and textiles in contrast to her ‘grown up’ home accessories. Her home doesn’t take itself too seriously and is welcoming to the eye. If you take a peek through Devon’s blog, you will see how her home reflects her and her personality and this to me is what a home should be. Every house is unique and it’s the love and life that you add to it which makes it a home…
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.
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.
As soon as I saw this I had to share it with you all! I love the quirky touch to the pile by the random burst of colour painted onto the side of the wood. Not only is it fun, but it also makes an everyday view (if you’re lucky to have an open fire, that is!) into a stunning focal point for a home.
Even though the weather that we are currently experiencing doesn’t reflect the arrival of British summer time, doesn’t mean that your home and wardrobe don’t have to! Whether it’s clashing floral prints, a burst of colour on an upholstered chair or an over haul of all things bright and beautiful, here are a few stunning images to get your creativity flowing!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week and that you had a happy Easter….
For me, these two beautiful images are a summary of what is to come with the changing seasons. When the weather gets warmer, I love to open the windows in my home and to allow the breeze to circulate each room. The love the crisp, relaxing hues of the buds and bedroom.
