Journey

I think there is something enchanting about each one of these photographs. The romanticism of layers of colour, texture and design styles stacked up on one another, as occupiers have developed through an interior design journey. Like upholstery, these walls are created of layers and the one thing that makes the wall unique is the wallpaper that dresses the wall, like fabric to a chair…

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!

Selby’d

Welcome to the eclectic Manhattan home of writer & interior designer Rita Konig.

I have always been a huge fan of ‘The Selby’, and his ability to capture people relaxed in their own environments and this is no different. I love how chaotic and fun it is, the mixture of old and new sitting harmoniously amongst colour and texture.

LOVE.

Chintz

In my eyes, there is no such things as too much chintz! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know this to be a true fact. Whether it’s a new item of floral clothing or a vintage Sanderson fabric, I am like a magpie to the colourful and ditsy blooms.

Happy Friday!

Below

I have always struggled with buying rugs. I find they’re either a little ‘try hard’ in design or have a tendency to look more shabby than chic. However, since moving into our new house recently I have started to warm towards the idea of welcoming them into my home. Not only are they practical, but it is the perfect way of installing colour and texture into a room while not being permanent.

Let the quest for a rug begin….

Layer

These three images have been an inspiration to me lately and I find the use of layers in each image interesting. Whether it’s laying clothing and mixing clashing colours, overlapping of mediums on a canvas or adding interest to a room by taking something ordinary and adding to it.

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Qualities

These eclectic images have all been playing on my mind this week. Ok, so from first view they have nothing ‘in common’, but with a second glance they all hold texture…from the pleating detail on the luscious pink¬†Balenciaga 1950’s evening wrap, the corrugated material holding the distressed wording or the two dimensional texture created with the pencil, each have their own textural qualities.

1947

I have always been interested in print making and one day, it is something that I would like to learn how to do. What is more personal that a fabric that has not only been designed by yourself but also printed by your own fair hands?

As soon as I saw this image of factory workers printing in 1947, that I had to share it with you. Even though printing techniques have been modernised nowadays, I love the team work and attention to detail that the ladies would have had to commit to to create lengths of cloth, with each batch being unique due to the nature in which they were printed back in the day….

Nouveau Spot

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!

Checked

My inspiration from this week has come from the beauty that is the checked fabric. Whether cotton, linen or wool, I adore the impact that it makes. Whether it is a simple check or more of a plaid, our interiors and wardrobes should be graced with this lined loveliness.

Happy Friday!
