Striking Stripes

Stripes are probably the most common form of pattern in decorating and they are pretty versatile. They can be bold or subtle, all over your wall or just an accent on cushions or a rug. If you are considering stripes then cast your eye over these striking examples.

Bold Fabrics to Brighten your day

I have found a wonderful Etsy store called Bee Tree Craft. They have some absolutely gorgeous printed fabrics from Cloud9, Monaluna, Birch, Daisy Janie and Robert Kaufman. I feel the need to make some bunting now I have seen these.

Beautiful bedding for a quick room makeover

I am a huge believer in bedding being of major importance in the feel of a bedroom. As I am currently renting not all of the furniture is to my taste but I can change the style of my bedroom through the bedding. It is an easy way to show your style and you can take the bedding with you when you move. 


There is some beautiful bedding from the Linen House in Australia. I just love them all. What do you think?

Fantastic decorations for spring or easter

I just found these fantastic decorations for sale on zibbet.com from seller Haru. I think the colours are just beautiful for decorating over easter. If you have lots of pretty paper scraps you could try to make a version yourself. I may try to make something similar as a test as I am currently looking for wedding decoration ideas.

Fantastic Furniture from France

I found a fantastic on line store today. Maisons du Monde delivers to most of Europe, unfortunately Ireland is not currently on the list but hopefully that will change because I love everything I have seen so far. 


Even if you are not in their delivery area there are some really inspirational shots of their furniture. I particularly like their industrial pieces and reclaimed wood. Here are just a few examples.

Beautiful beach hut

I had to ask my fiance if it was definitely March yesterday - I was starting to have my doubts. The weather has been outstanding the last few days. Warmer than we would usually have in summer and not a cloud in the sky. Needless to say, I haven't got much work done as a result - we don't get much weather like this so gotta make the most of it when it comes.!


I have just been for a walk along the beach and thought it was the ideal time to post about the stunning beach hut by studiomama. What a fantastic use of space (and a pretty good view too!) It just goes to show you don't need a lot of space for it to be a stylish one!

My source of inspiration - The Rug Company

I used to buy rugs for a living for Shop Direct, a mail order company in the UK that includes the brand Littlewoods. One of the first sources of inspiration for me each season was The Rug Company - they work with some of the worlds top designers and the results are amazing. I would love to own a rug from The Rug Company one day. Head over to their website to see why  - they are just stunning.

Living in the loft

The house I grew up in was a single story house with a conversion upstairs including two bedrooms and a dormer window. I love the interest added by living within the roof space, there is something so enjoyable about lying in bed all cosy, listening to the rain against the roof. Here are some lovely lofts.

Fabulous Felt from Wynske

Wynske is a dutch website featuring paintings and felt accessories. The felt lampshades are stunning. I have done a bit of felting in the past and this website really inspires me to try a bit more.
