Advent

I absolutely love the count down to Christmas and can’t resist an advent calendar, especially when they’re handmade with love and thought. I love these two ideas of hanging the little packages with twine from a branch and personalising each day with it’s own design.

Happy Friday!

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!

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

Thousand Words

As many of you will know, I am constantly busy on Pinterest¬†sourcing inspiring images. The quote that ‘a picture says a thousand words’ is too true when it comes to gaining creativity, as I have found through my adventure with collating my boards.

Here is a little collection of the images that have gained my attention over the past few months. If you’d like to see more of where these have come from, pop over and visit the Hana & George Pinterest page.

Hope you all have a lovely week!

Delicate Array

The detailing of a butterfly’s wings is not only delicate, but a beautiful array of colours. I have always loved the idea of collecting framed butterfly images and scattering them around windows around my next home and contrasting the intricate detailing of the butterflies with a beautiful William Morris wallpaper.

SWOON.

Grey Notions

Grey is one of my favourite colours, whether in my wardrobe or in my home, and it peeks up in my day to day life frequently. Whether it’s charcoal or marl, it’s the perfect hue to inject a feeling of calm.

With the cold snap that we’re experiencing at the moment, I thought it would be the ideal opportunity to collate an inspirations board dedicated to all things grey…

Lilac Lovelies

As winter is fast approaching and all traces of summer are slowly fading, I have fallen in love with these images! The idea of preserving floral beauty and displaying it around, as a reminder of our seasons. I think that the bundles hanging from the beams look stunning – cheap, yet chic!

LOVE.

Birdy

A few months ago I collated a post around hand painted wallpaper (the post can be found here) and since then, I have been storing up other beautiful images with wallpaper as the focal point.

I always seem to be attracted to wallpaper and fabrics that have influential links to nature and wildlife. I love to see tropical birds adorning beautiful vintage fabrics and recently got my hands on some Sanderson fabric from 1980 which I can’t wait to use! (There will be more about this soon!)
