Mint & Stripe

These two images have been a huge source of inspiration for me this week – beautiful hand painted panels with a minty pop of colour and a gallery wall surrounding a striking stripe settee.

Would you have either of these bold statements in your home?

Kitchen Lovin’

Kitchens are thought of as being the heart of the home. It’s the place where people congregate at parties and where a storm is cooked up! With this in mind, I always think that your kitchen should be one of the main spaces in your home to reflect your personality and interests.

Here are a few images that I’ve collected of beautiful kitchens for future inspiration. There is plenty more where this came from on my¬†Kitchen Lovin’ Pinterest board.

Straight

Stripes are huge this season – in the home and on the catwalk. I find stripes to be an eye catching trench that works perfectly when you’re wanting to make a bold statement. I love candy stripe wallpaper and beautifully cut stripe trousers. Yum.

Have you gathered a love affair with ‘the stripe’?

Perfect Spaces

This is the stunning home of designer, Erin Fetherston. Welcome.

Erin’s home is in New York and has drawn inspirations from her previous Parisian home, enchanted by a vintage charm. The flat has feminine touches, but combines modern and vintage beautifully. I love the luxurious fabrics used throughout her home and large windows that glow light into the apartment. My favourite rooms have got to be the bedroom and Erin’s dressing room – the perfect spaces.

Flying Birds

In the last few years, the quality and designs of wall stickers has improved ten fold and they’re easy to apply to painted surfaces. I adore this idea of incorporating vintage china into this bird and tree wall sticker – it gives the impression that the birds are ducking and diving inbetween the plates. Beautiful.

Ruby

The colour red is associated with passion, courage, rage and desire. Deep, ruby reds first came into our homes during the Victorian era, a statement colour of grandeur which was seen in libraries, dining rooms and entrances. This coming season, red is seen in the home and on the catwalks and is vibrant and uplifting.

Vignette

Everyone’s home is injected with their own personal style, their likes and loves and I enjoy ‘reading’ the story of people’s personality through the home they live in and how things are placed and arranged.

I recently learnt that the placement of objects on your favourite side board or console table is called ‘Vignetting’ (I just presumed it was homely touches but I’ve now learnt otherwise!).

Do you have a beautifully styled vignettes in your home?

Jubilant Print

With a lot of attention on the UK this year, what with the Olympics and the Queen’s celebrations, why not inject a bit of English style into your home with the fabulous Jubilee fabric collection from Liberty’s!

This fabric collection is a debut home furnishings collection from Liberty and is inspired by the London store’s archive of exquisite vintage designs, which have been popular within the fashion houses of Chanel and Erdem for decades. The Jubilee Collection is an eye-catching and eclectic range of prints on quality velvet and furnishings linen.

It’s DEFINITELY love at first sight for me!
