Wednesday Wish List – Statement Necklace

Love, love, love a statement necklace.

It can be the extra something required to transform a LBD and it can also look amazing when worn simply with a white shirt and jeans.

Wonderful Whites

Decorating with white is a great way to make other hues pop.  There are so many different shades of white to choose from that choosing the right shade can alter the perception of the room; a pure white will feel cool whereas an ivory tone with add warmth.

Either way decorating with white suits all tastes from modern to traditional.

Monday Mood Board – Gustavian

Image

Personally I love Swedish interior design, whether it be Gustavian or more modern Nordic influences.  When you think of Gustavian you would probably think of light, airy spaces that enhance the painted furniture usually found in muted grey palettes.  Of course it wouldn’t be complete without a check fabric or two.  Simple, uncluttered, elegant spaces.


Art Deco Dressing Table

Art Deco Dressing Table

This piece has just sold and is off to Bonnie Scotland! A beautiful Art Deco dressing table that I hand painted in Annie Sloan’s Graphite to make the fabulous chrome handles pop.


Friday Findings – Sandberg Wallpaper

Recently I found a wallpaper I had to have.  This particular wallpaper has lovely blue horses printed on all over it.  Finally I tracked down the manufacturer which turns out to be a Swedish company called Sandberg.

They produce contemporary, funky prints whilst protecting the environment through their production process keeping traditional methods alive.

Here is said wallpaper which is named Collette after one of their Irish customers who raises horses!

And again.
