Interior Design Trend: Herringbone Flooring

Herringbone flooring is another trend I can’t get enough of, it exudes sophistication but its zig-zag lines can also be playful & vibrant in tone. The variety of material options from brickwork to ceramics or wood can offer something clean or rustic in texture that can add depth or contrast to an interior design scheme…

Anyway – I sincerely  hope you reap as much enjoyment from the wild world of herringbone flooring as I have..

Antique Scouting: Tetbury, England

Today has been a lovely day spent antique hunting with my parents. My first time to the idyllic Gloucestershire town of Tetbury was certainly no disappointment, with a fab stock of antique shops, most of which had migrated from the beautiful georgian town of Bath, as the shop rental prices rocketed. Purchases today included three beautiful oversized glass jars filled with a wonderful selection of shells, a set of french blue glass tumblers & and a a small impressionist painting.

For Lunch we stopped at The Chefs Table, a beautiful bistro specialising in simple, rustic French dishes. We then drove home to Oxfordshire through the snow, just in time for my dad to watch the England V France rugby match.. and to do some online fantasy house hunting in the Tetbury area!

I would recommend a day trip to tetbury to everyone, particularly Antiques enthusiasts.. My fav antiques shop of the day were Brownrigg interiors & Brown and White & Lorfords (Photos below).

10 DIY / CRAFT PROJECTS to add charm, character and panache to your abode…

I must admit, I haven’t had time to try any of these projects and I won’t pretend I have. However I have spent many minutes thinking about doing them, and I will get round to it soon, so surely that deserves a few points. Anyway below are 10 of my favourites, including some copper (you know how I LOVE COPPER…), flowery chandeliers & also some organizational tricks (very practical). Now, some of them are just inspiration for something that I believe could be easily achievable with a few tools and the use of ones noggin, whilst others are full blown tutorials from some fabulous bloggers.

Enjoy!

Room Raider: The Boudoir of a young woman..

The bedroom of a young woman is essentially the most feminine and individually expressive room that one will have, once its time to move in with other half, I suppose a lot of ‘girlyness’ must be stripped away to accommodate the new masculine room mate. I’m still on my own, but not for long and as such I’ve started to look at my room in a different way, this is potentially the last room that is mine and no one else’s. Well I suppose if all goes well then I can have my own dressing room or perhaps my own en suite, but never again my own room. Image

Interior Design Trend : Leopard Accents

One Interior Design trend I simply can’t get enough of is leopard print. There are certain conditions or rules though…

1. Less is more – Leopard overload is a one way ticket from tasteful to tacky.

2. Subtle tone – a garish print or the wrong shade is a NO. My favourites tend to be muted and skewed towards brown and neutral tones (not orange and certainly not any brightly coloured variations)

3. Furry? – If your going for the faux fur look it has to be high quality, cheap faux fur is just wrong

Poster Power

With the rise of incredible online platforms for artists via sites such as society6, Etsy,Nelly Duff, Redbubble and the Keep Calm Gallery – the message is clear – Posters are something to be taken seriously. They are a means of adding interest and excitement to the home without breaking the bank, and can be changed and updated which is ideal for those of us (myself included) that are perhaps a tad indecisive.

Below is a collection of interiors using posters to inspire, along with some of my favourite images..

Enjoy!

Interior design trend: Crazy About Copper…

My latest Fixation has got to be copper home accessories. I Also have a new found cause of sorrow- my bedroom ceiling is too low for one of Tom Dixon’s beautiful spherical copper light fixtures.

Here are some of my favourite pinterest pics, along with a selection of copper products I wish I could afford.

Bonne Chance!
