Within kitchens it is important to get the right balance of textural interest, mixing hard stones with other surfaces to create visual layers. This adds depth and interest to a space, making it pleasing to the eye. The use of tiles and wood in this kitchen does just that, as does a small dose of colour. Whilst keeping the palette simple the use of colour adds a little bit of personality to this beautiful kitchen renovation. #texturalgoodness#resene#tilespace#recentrenovation#interiordesign#heretohelp#pinkwolfinteriordesign

Artwork, flowers and greenery are the icing on the cake when it comes to making a space feel like your home. So many people renovating find it hard to take this last most important step. I get that. Renovating is hard work. But try to remember the icing, it is what most of us love. And you will find with these small additions to your home your personality, your loves and most importantly your memories will shine through making it feel like your home. #recentrenovation #needhelpstyling #heretohelp #pinkwolfinteriordesign

The resurgence of wallpaper is in full swing. Yesterday I went to the launch of Arte’s new wallcover collection Extinct Animals, a collaboration between Moooi and Arte International. Talk about breathtaking. The colour palette, textural goodness and the incredible design of each wallpaper is quite simply stunning. Works of art in themselves.

Some progress has been made, well a decision at least to progress with some changes at home. So my inspiration board has been full of loveliness of late. The dilemma of course is I love them all.

There are so many gorgeous lighting options out there. Lighting not only adds warmth to a space but it has the ability to create a strong focal point. I love the simplicity of the oversized Muuto’s Under the Bell pendant, whilst the globe light adds great architectural interest. And last but not least, I have been a fond admirer of Northern Lighting’s work and the Acorn Pendant is no exception. Simply divine, as is the architecture in all of these spaces.

So what really did happen to this year? I don’t know. It’s terrible. A shocker. Where did the time go? Clearly I need to re prioritise things. Sorry. Here is a little inspiration to try and get me back on track.

This weather is driving me nuts. It is quite simply awful at the moment. So here are some pieces that have bought a touch of happiness and colour to my grey dreary day. They are by the very talented Kara Rosenlund, Arie Hellendoorn and Jon Thom.

I do love how black has the ability to make most things sing. From gorgeous black pots, a black textural fence or a couple of old wicker garden chairs painted in a glossy black. The simple palette and contrast allows the beautiful foliage to to be the star of the show. How can one not love that?
