Spring cleaning - light, bright, clean rooms

I have spent today doing a major spring clean. As we move into March in a couple of days, it's time to clear out some clutter and make the most of the fact the days are getting brighter. As a celebration of the fact spring is here, enjoy the bright, clean style of these rooms.

Fantastic online tool for your interiors

Today I discovered a new website called Olioboard. It is an online tool to create mood boards. I just signed up and created my first mood board - it is quick and easy and really good fun. I think I may be addicted! Check out my first creation below. 


If you are itching to have a go - check out the Olioboards website and if you like, send me on any creations and I will post them on here.


Enjoy!

Setting up on my own

Something a bit different today - I am starting a course today on setting up my own business. It is one day a week for the next month. I'm really excited about it and will let you know how it goes.

What are you up to today?

Holly Dyment Design - not one to shy away from colour

I recently discovered the website of interior designer Holly Dyment. I have always played it fairly safe with colour using just a pick of 2 or three colours together. If you want to go full on with colour in a room then have a look on Holly's website. Her rooms bring an instant smile to your face. How could you ever feel low in one of these rooms?

Bedside tables.....and chairs.....and ladders, oh my!

Having some form of storage next to your bed is a must but a lot of people don't have that much space. I used to have a chair next to my bed, I could store books under the chair and put a lamp and my alarm clock on the seat. Here are some lovely bedside tables and a few other objects that do the same job.

Cup of tea?

I am a total caffeine addict and love stopping off for a decent coffee when I am out. I have re-discovered tea recently as I had neglected tea due to my obsession with coffee. There are some gorgeous tea cups and mugs around - I am going to have to go make a cup for myself right now.

That's one stylish estate agent

I have found links to bo-laget on a number of blogs so I decided to have a look. Using google translate to understand what the website is about it seems that they are in the business of selling homes. Now, I don't know what it's like where you live but there are certainly no estate agents around here with such stylish images on their website, I have featured one property below as an example. If you happen to be looking for a property in Sweden or just want to see some inspiring Scandinavian design check out the bo-laget website

Brighten your day with a burst of orange

Orange can really brighten your mood, I particularly like it with white or grey (again with the grey - I am obsessed just now). Whether a feature wall, some bright bedding or colourful furniture - adding a burst of orange brings some fun to a room.

Casa de Valentina an inspiring Portuguese blog

I stumbled across a fantastic Portuguese blog Casa de Valentina. One of the posts has a gorgeous home that is light, airy and full of bursts of colour. I love the home below, especially the kitchen and dining area.

Add pattern to your life with some terrific tiles

I have mentioned before that I don't like the tiles in our rented kitchen, with a pattern of diamonds using solid cream and solid brown tiles against an oak kitchen and dark laminate counter. The space is so dark I don't enjoy spending my time in there. Tiles don't have to be dreary, there are some gorgeous examples where tiles contribute to making a room feel bright and airy.
