Swan Lake

You’ll either love this bed or hate it, but for me it is utterly stunning! The way that the bed is centre within the room and ‘sat’ within calm hues and on a blue rug instantly reminds me of a swan drifting down a lake shimmering in the summer sun…

SWOON.

Blues

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.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Lit Mould

A few months ago, I created this post on how to create your own candles using vintage cup and saucers to give them a new lease of life. I am totally in love with the idea of also making my own candles using glass jelly moulds and including two wicks to make more of an impact. What this space as I rummage through vintage markets and charity shops to find the moulded beauties!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

Floral Scent

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!

Different Times

I have found myself inspired by light this week. The way that the evening sun beams through the windows and how things appear different at certain times of the day. For me the light of summer is always magical – the strong sun of the morning welcoming another day and the dull, romantic shimmer of the evening….

Shading

Lighting is an inexpensive way of bringing your room to life. I love the dull glow of a table lamp or a large drummed pendent light controlled by a dimmer switch. I am a huge fan of a lovely lampshade and they can be as simple or outrageous as you desire! I have always been interested in taking a course on how to do it so that I could adorn my home with vintage florals and textured beauties…

Happy Wednesday!

Artistic Bulb

I thought that I’d add a weekly feature to the blog that is a collection of four images that I have found through my research of the week and would like to share with you. The images inspirational value will differ and some may just be the occasional pretty image, naturally, but all the images will have something in common – that being that they have impacted on my thought process & have turned on that artistic bulb inside of me.

Here is my first four images to begin this Friday feature with. I’d love to know your thoughts…

Floral Perk

Pinch, punch, first of the month!

I always think that once March appears, spring isn’t far behind. That lovely time of year when colour seems to appear everywhere, the nights get a lot lighter and everyone is a little perkier. I have to admit, I am a lover of winter but the arrival of a little warmth is always welcomed by myself.

Circular Encasing

I adore this area of Lela Rose’s multi-functional home. The sixteen meter high ceilings definitely allows for the gallery-esque space to be airy and 1960’s Pierre Paulin circular sectional encasing the pillar is simply stunning!

SWOON.
