Well this is my first post of 2016 and one of my NY resos was to make sure I post more this year. At the moment, I am rather partial to collecting things, and plates are a passion. There are so many interesting designs out there but here are a few of my picks…enjoy!

requently! As January yawns on, the only thing that really piques my interest is the interior design wish list that I have for the next year…one thing I really want to do is find a place for the collection of plates that I have been adding to over the last few years, but here are a couple of lovely new additions that I plan to snaffle…

I’m a terrible blogger, I’ve been so busy moving from the city to the countryside and writing lots of features and doing lots of lovely make-up and hair styling, that I’ve totally neglected my blog! I promise to make amends though, so I thought a pick of my latest swoonsome finds that encompass the three A/W2015 interior trends that I have my beady eye on. It might go some way to say sorry to my lovely readers….:-)
I found this awesome shop called Adairs which is Australian-based (aren’t ALL the beautiful things always from Aus?) and while I think they ship to the UK, it would be great if someone (hint, hint, Britain) might become a supplier? Anyhoo, I’m coveting the cloud covers for my two little girls’ new bunk beds. I had to suffer brown gingham in the 1970s on my bed, so my girls are going to get something p-r-e-t-t-y! They cost around $AUD99 for a single which is like £45. Pricey but nicey! This is the colour pop trend in a nutshell – pretty bright splashes of rainbow hues against a fresh neutral palette. What’s not to love? Throw in some stripes, a bit of chevron, some polka dots and you’re laughing!
Gosh this is pretty don’t you think?
While we are still at Adairs, I’m totally bagging these gold spot stickers for my new home office – a little pop of gold in the morning is sure to dust away the cobwebs!
Now to some glamour – this is such a hot trend at the moment in interiors, and one I’m quite partial to – not the whole shebang, mind, just a sprinkling here and there…take this teeny gold geometric vase, for example, I love it! It’s EUR10 from Aprilandthebear.com.
Another trend that is creeping into the autumn is the decadent gothica styling which is evident in the latest high street offerings. I like elements of this, such as this Edith Cushion found at House Junkie (£72). Just the right amount of macabre fun to make it onto my sofa!
Still at HouseJunkie, check out this angle poise candelabra – I mean, come on! This one might be a tad pricey at £75 but it’s so original! I loves it.
So there we have my autumn edit. I promise I will add more soon! Enjoy x
I hate January (sorry everyone born this month) it’s grey, cold and I’m always skinto. So I dream of nice things that I might be able to afford one day to make myself happier! Yes, it makes me happy! So what?!
So here are some of my picks of niceness to perk up the grey old days this month!
I totally want to snuggle up with this gorgeous cowl by Suzana Davidovic found over on Ravelry. The Calm Cowl looks soft, comfy and has that grey tone I love.
For eating on…
Good old Anthropology never fails to have products with just the right amount of quirk to be cool. Take this Natural World Dessert Plate, £16. I would probably be tempted to put it on my wall rather than hide it away in the cupboard!
For my feet!
The Milan Court, £110, from Boden, is a sight to behold! Great for sping, and certainly able to cheer up a miserable January day! Might have to save the pennies for these though…
The Crossbody Leather Mini Bag, £45, from Oliver Bonas is really sweet, bright and I insist on cross body bags – none of this two piddly handles business!
For my wall…
Another Oliver Bonas treat (there are so many!) and one that embraces the on-trend copper colour, this wire letter is only £10 and will look superb on my dining room wall. Hope they cheer y’all up too!
It’s been aaaages! But I’m back. The kids are older, the nights marginally less sleepless and with so many beautiful things to coo over, I thought it was high time to blog. So dust me down, here are my top picks for March:
Add some spring style to the table with this rather sweet painted glass vase – perfect for tulips and daffs – it really cheers up the kitchen table! Only £7 from Berry Red.
Easter is a mere month away so my head is already being filled with eggy chocolatey goodness and ideas for the kiddlies’ egg hunt – aren’t these egg holders divine? These Beatrix Potter Easter Egg Paper Containers come in 2 sizes and 3 different designs. What’s not to love?
These flowery paper straws will add a vintage touch to your drinks and beat the boring old plastic versions hands-down! £4 for 25.
How’s about some handmade paper flowers? I spotted these over on Etsy. They just make me feel good. You get 8 in a pack. She does all kind of colours – just so pretty! Blossom Pink Handmade Spiral Paper Flowers by Crazy2becrazy, £2.27 .
Lastly, I really want to make one of these: felt bunny pouches created by MerMag – check out her oh-so-brilliant blog Mer Mag where you can download the template too. What a simple but sweet idea for Eater gifts!
I’m back working on fab craft mag, Craftseller after an eight month maternity break and I’m being super-inspired by just about everything in the forthcoming issue! They have just had a new redesign and I love the new look! Check out the Craftseller blog for lots of tips, inspiration and more! Better still, buy the mag 🙂
