We’re in week four of the One Room Challenge, and I’ve made some progress on Eleanor’s global boho bedroom design.

Design Inspo | ’80s-Inspired Home Decor

Design Inspo | ’80s-Inspired Home Decor

Following on from my interior design trends round up post (last week, it was all about Greenery), today we’re talking 80’s-inspired geometric home decor. Think crisp, graphic prints and plenty of bold colours. Making Spaces’ bold drawing room (below), pulls this look off immaculately. Most of what I remember from the 80s was not pretty as far as home decor goes, but I am loving this modern take on it. Especially the lighting – there is some very good geometric lighting out there right…

Design Inspo | The Greenery Trend

Design Inspo | The Greenery Trend

I am currently in the midst of a self-imposed spending freeze, and to curb my desire to shop/decorate, I’ve been window shopping online instead. I found a lot of pretty things, so I’m rounding up a whole host of them to piggy back off my 2017 interior design trends round up post. Starting with green, glorious green. I labelled this trend in home decor “Botany” in my last post, but although palm prints can look amazing (like in Whistler Leather’s showroom, above,…

Design Inspo | Interior Design Trend Report 2017

I spent last Thursday perusing all the pretty things on display at London Design Week. I’ve been asked a few times recently – particularly by friends and family who want help decorating their own spaces – what’s trending in interiors. Now, I’m not saying you have to follow even a single one of these to have an awesome home. Because, you know, you do you. Except I personally love almost all of the interiors trends in this round-up. And whether…

Design Finds | A New Orleans Family Vacation Rental & A Tiny Home

Travel // A New Orleans Family Vacation Home One of the best family holidays we’ve taken was to New Orleans. There’s tonnes for kids to do, and the food is amazing. We took the Amtrak from Chicago and slept in a sleeper car – so fun! We stayed in a hotel, but if I went again, I’d like to rent somewhere with a more authentic New Orleans vibe. Like this lovely little shotgun rental home in the city’s Lower Garden…
