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.

Time flies by and I am still dreaming of a new kitchen. There are so many truly gorgeous kitchens out there for inspiration. Too many in fact. The decision making is taunting me, almost paralysing me. So for now I will just share with you some of the stunning designs that have stopped me in my tracks.

I want a new bathroom, or two. Greedy I know, so for now I am just longingly looking at these for inspiration…works by more clever people at Amee Allsop, Hearth Studio and Fiona Lynch.

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?

I have been a fan of all things Rachel Castle for quite some time now. Her work includes beautiful linen, sweet velvet cushions and artwork that smacks fun in your face. Her new work is particularly gorgeous…best I start saving my pennies. Or perhaps a wee tea towel will help me overcome fix.

Here is a beautiful new fabric and wallpaper recently launched by Elitis. Truly gorgeous don’t you think. I cannot believe the incredible technology today and what they can achieve from a printing perspective. Amazing….
Don’t you just love a good sofa, one that looks fabulously inviting, comfy and sink into gorgeous. Every time I feast my eyes on some divine design post I find myself falling for the sofa in the pic. As per usual I just can’t quite decide which style I prefer as I love them all. And by the by, how incredible is that piece of art by Belinda Fox in the first shot. It is no wonder that I fell for that space…

It is no secret that I love art, all sorts of styles, colours and shapes. Yet often when I am out and about I see empty walls that to me, are calling out for a little fun, a splash of colour or a peice that tells a story about the owners that live there.
I suppose some people are too scared to hang pictures or too nervous to buy something that they think won’t work. I say forget about your worries, buy things you love, hang them and have some fun. There are some wonderful art fixes out there and they don’t have to cost a fortune. Debbie Carlos is a fine example of that. Her images are super sized, shout personality and I love them. Don’t be nervous, take the plunge, treat yourself…you know your walls and you deserve it.
