With Spring well and truly here I’ve been craving beautiful bright pops of colour, delicate pastels, neutrals and touches of gold – Spring really is such a wonderful time of the year where you’re able to shake off the darker hues and layers from Winter and enjoy that sun kissed feeling that the warmer weather brings. Here are a few of my favourite Spring finds to brighten your day, or of course add to your wish list for Christmas – I can’t wait for all of the Spring and Summer festivities to begin, I’ve a feeling it’s going to be the best Summer yet! x
I love me some bohemian goodness. Nothing to take you back to easy of summer and it’s adventures .
But boho isn’t just for the warmer months.
The trick to Bohemian at home is layers. Layer and layer and layer some more, rugs over rugs, cushions, throws, vases and plants. Play with textures and patterns, rich fabrics and shapes. The same goes for the outfit. A mashing of fabrics against hard metal, elaborate pieces and interesting textures. Chucking a coat over top and you are good to go. Keep the whimsy all year round.
Oh you bohemians, you sure now how to layer.
Go over here to see who was my babe’n boho muse.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend – how incredible is the weather at the moment, you wouldn’t believe that it’s almost winter with how warm it is! Something very exciting happened in our home over the weekend, after three years of trying to decide on a couch to get we finally found our dream one from Freedom – and it’s perfect!! So now I’m on a little mission to decorate our lovely new lounge room with gorgeous cushions, throws and of course a little humour – how incredibly gorgeous is the dinosaur bookend! We absolutely adore simple white and grey tonnes as a base for everything – but of course I love injecting shocking bursts of colour into the mix, I can’t wait to wander around Sydney this week and pick up a few new goodies for our lounge. x
Oh, Autumn really is starting to settle in, the days are getting shorter, cooler and the rain has finally arrived. It’s that time of the year when you start to pull out your winter goodies from storage to set yourself up for winter, or treat yourself to something new and cozy – like a gorgeous pair of moccasin slippers, aren’t they divine!! I adore this time of the year where your bedroom becomes a little more cozy and you don’t feel bad for spending a few lazy hours curled up in bed reading a good book over the weekend while a scented candle lights the room. x
I adore stumbling across beautiful new Etsy shops, it feels like you’ve discovered a little secret! Especially when they are as stunning a Home Sweet Home Design, each and every piece is lovingly hand made by the incredibly talented and oh so lovely Valerie – she learnt to crochet from her Mum and during a holiday break started creating all the beautiful pieces that you see! I absolutely adore everything that she makes, how sweet are the little crocheted bowls and garlands, even on the chillest night your home would feel so cozy! Be sure to scoot over and have a look at her darling online shop, I promise you won’t leave empty handed. xo
I have been wanting to create a little office space for some time now, as comfy as the couch is something little more practical is needed. I fell head over heals in love with Catherine from The Life Styled stunning studio space – how could you not be inspired to work in such a clean, bright and beautiful space plus how fantastic are those little gold dinosaurs! I can’t wait to create a little office space now, you can see more of Catherine’s beautiful home here on the Glitter Guide. x
