Inspiring Design: Five Columns Essaouria

Inspiring Design: Five Columns Essaouria

Five Columns Essaouria is a holiday rental home on the coast of Morocco. The building dates to the 18th century, and it’s been restored beautifully – clean, modern design paired with traditional Moroccan architecture and textiles, all in a perfect neutral colour palette. I was bowled over when I first came across this stunning home, in the heart of Essaouria’s medina. It belongs to London-based interior designer Lisa Burke, and it’s available to rent via HomeAway.   The home’s bright, neutral scheme puts a more modern spin on traditional Moroccan decor,… View Post

Style Love these earrings I just bought for myself, from the cutest little home/gift shop in Islington.

I spent four hours there and was practically running around at the end trying to squeeze it all in before I had to leave. I listened to a panel… View Post

STYLE // I bought a pair of these slip-on Converse over summer. I am definitely too lazy for laces. I also rather love these blush pink trainers from APL. These very similar gold ones are super cute too. Matching head phones, anyone? FINDS // I’m a sucker for small space solutions, and I love this fold-away desk from from CB2.… View Post

Outdoors // Last summer, I bought four hydrangeas. I kept two of them in their original pots and bought two Lechuza self-watering pots for the others. I’ve taken barely any care of either so far this summer (my bad) and this is how they were both looking a couple of weeks ago. I only bought two last year because they’re expensive (£33 each for the size I got) but man, they are so worth it. I’ve got a few other self-watering pots which were cheaper, and they’re better than nothing, but… View Post
