My Petal

I need to spend more time in my garden, it’s a simple fact.  This is reinforced whenever I see such shots as these.  Ever so pretty and quite simply beautiful.

Yes Please

I would love to get my hands on one or two of these little Bright Sprout lights or perhaps the lovely Hazel, both made by Nordic Tales. If it’s the Bright Sprout that you love and if you are lucky enough to live in Wellington then Small Acorns may just be able to help you as they have several hanging in their window at the moment.  The gorgeous wooden tones, the bright pops of colour and the ability to mix it up make them the perfect lighting addition to any home…4_2_1 Bright Sprouthazel4

An Eclectic Twist

I gravitate towards styles that have a mix of old and new.  Places with history and memories whilst not being too bogged down with the old.  In saying that, my own home does run the risk of being somewhat over sentimental and some might say cluttered.  Anyway it’s just what I like.  It makes me feel at home and it reminds me of many happy passed times…  Eclectic Post La Maison Eclectic Post Style at Home Eclectic Post BLue Chair

Sweet Staircases

How lovely would it be to have a beautiful staircase in your home?  These staircases are gorgeous.  The first example with its simplistic palette and the warmth that the wood adds to the space whilst the others smack personality through their charm, colour and gorgeous detailing.  I adore how they entice you upwards and beyond…what’s not to love.Wooden Stairs Yellow StairsBlue Stairs

Garden Escapes

I have been researching outdoor areas for a client and have stumbled upon some of the most gorgeous gardens, decks and patios.  Some of the spaces are tiny but they still look so beautiful and inviting.  Often all it takes to transform a space is a few gorgeous pots filled with soft greenery, a lovely chair to sit in and of course friends to chat with in the warmth of the sun… Plante Deco Fr

Artful Ways

For me, art plays such an important role in adding personality and warmth to a space.  Over the years I have framed an insane amount of postcards, sweet little prints and gorgeous photos and to this day I still love them all.  The pieces often bring back fond memories and they say something about my style.  Here are some of my latest loves….Draft Post Art Girl in SeaThe SeperationbathtubRabbit

A Touch of Glamour

Different types of lighting within your home can have an incredible impact on the ambience within each space.   Whether you use a gorgeous table lamp, beautiful pendants or striking floor lamps, they will all add interest, layers of light and a feeling of warmth to an area.  I adore these examples, one so simple and modernist in style whilst the others would add a touch of glamour to any room.  Beautiful.
