Lofted

I love loft apartments, they always feel secure and comforting with their low proportions.

I was immediately attracted to this lofted beauty of a home as the house looks so inviting but has managed to be light and airy, a description which can not be associated with all. The light floods in through the large windows and the white gallery-esque walls show the colours and textures on display perfectly.

Happy Wedensday!

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!

Cornered

I’ve always liked the idea of creating a comfortable nook, somewhere that you can escape in a book or in something creative. I am planning on making such a corner in our kitchen soon, along with a bookcase of cookery books and a lit side table where I can generally mooch about at the weekend with a coffee.

Here are a few spaces that have caught my eye on my visual adventures, granted not all are kitchen friendly, but they are just beautiful it would be rude not to share…

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…

Deck the Halls

When glass is made into festive decorations and candle holders and the light reflects off its surface, the shades created are magical. I love to decorate my tree and mantlepiece with glass items as they have a beautiful way of looking different at different times of the day and, above all, they tend to be adaptable each year when colour schemes change.

Happy Friday!

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.

Golden

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.

Happy Monday to you all!

Rural

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!

Attic Love

This stunning attic room conversion is the creation of Janae Hardy of her blog The Itsy Bitsy House. The stark white walls and floor are bought alive by the stream of natural light through the end window and the neutralness is off set by her lovely, bright collection of furniture, treasures and trinkets. What a gorgeous and calm space!

Shimmer

…Whether it’s the sun reflecting off the aluminium shell of an airstream, or the way that the light picks up the tones of the  rhinestones embedded within a necklace, I find that different textures can be ‘shown off’ in different ways, at different times off the day.
