Affordable Art by Urban Road

September 20, 2012 § 2 Comments

Lately I’ve been on the lookout for affordable art to fill the bare walls of my new home. Along came Urban Road!

This great website sells fantastic prints, stretched onto canvas and ready to hang! Best of all they come in a range of  decent sizes and they won’t break the bank. Oh and did I mention how much I love a site that offers free shipping?

I love them a lot.

I also love deer motifs so this one is definitely my favourite…

Such beautiful colours and styling.

My Favourite Design Books

September 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

I have a bit of an obsession with beautiful design books. A beautiful, well structured book can add so much to a space, not just intellectually but as a design feature. They add a pop of colour, illustrate your interests and add a ‘lived in’ vibe to any home. Just look at this gorgeous book-filled room for what can only be described as Proof.

Here are some of my favourites…

Design Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney

Food, Fashion, Friends by Fleur Wood

The Stylist’s Guide to NYC by Sibella Court

Decorate by Holly Becker

Nomad by Sibella Court

And the design book to end all design books…

Domino – The Book of Decorating by the domino editors

Books maketh a home… Happy Reading! -C x

Dreamy Wardrobes

April 23, 2012 § 3 Comments

One of my dreams would be to have an entire room to dedicate to clothes, shoes and bags. Right now I would be happy to have even a small walk in wardrobe! My current wardrobe is a tiny built in and although well organised and edited, it is OVERFLOWING! I love to have a place for everything so my wardrobe really frustrates me! But until I have my dream space, I will drool over other girls amazing closets…

 It’s all the gorgeous small details in these rooms that I love the most. Shopping bags as art, stunning light fixtures, matching hangers, not to mention the cute clothes and accessories. Completely self indulgent but I don’t care! -C x

Good Juju

April 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

I have been enamoured with the juju hat for quite some time now. Traditionally worn by Village Chiefs in the Cameroon region of central Africa, this authentic feathered head dress has made plenty of glamourous appearances in beautiful interiors over the past few years and it doesn’t look to be a fading trend. I love the way they add quirkiness and texture to any room. I also just love the word ‘JUJU’…

Louise Bell’s gorgeous online shop, Table Tonic, stocks a stunning array of colours and sizes so there’s bound to be one that will tickle your fancy!

On The Seventh Day She Shopped…

Today I had a day off from work so I decided to do a little bit of shopping. A little bit of shopping turned into a lot of shopping and here are the spoils!

This gorgeous pineapple from Bed Bath N’ Table reminded me of the 60’s brass pineapple ice buckets that I LOVE but this one is a candle!

Cuter than cute navy cotton bloomers from Peter Alexander

This pretty poppy bowl is also from Bed Bath N’ Table. It’s the perfect size to hold keys and coins on the coffee table.

This shower gel from The Body Shop smells scrumptious and is environmentally friendly to boot! The mask is from the Tea Tree Oil range which has recently whipped my naughty skin into shape.

Unusual brass candle sticks from one of my favourite vintage dealers in Southport.

Here’s what’s new in Mag Land, House&Garden, Marie Claire and Belle. I inhale magazines for breakfast, can’t get enough.

Happy Hump Day! -C x
