    Colour combo crush: Neon & Grey

    by  • Thursday, October 31, 2013 • Uncategorized • 3 Comments

    I’ve been stuck in a monochrome mood for a while now. My flat is almost devoid of any colour. Black, white, grey and natural wood are so easy to live with. I like the clean, Scandi feel and it’s easy to mix vintage pieces with new. Yes, it’s pretty safe and sometimes not very cheery and whenever I’m given a homey gift that might err on the side of colour caution, I have a mini freak out inside. (how’s that gonna fit in with my carefully crafted, muted scheme!?) But now that it’s grey and gloomy outside, I’m tempted to relax a little and embrace a touch of colour into my life/flat. What do you think of this colour combo?

    A tiny touch of neon can instantly make a room feel more lively. Fortunately, the way to work this trend isn’t full-on 80′s and garish. Apply it with a little restraint by adding just one piece in a room of otherwise neutral shades. I think I could almost live with that.

    Popular shades from Farrow & Ball

    by  • Thursday, October 17, 2013 • Look what I found • 1 Comment

    Inspired by their native Dorset countryside, Farrow and Ball launched 9 new gorgeous hues back in September. Some bold, (see Yellowcake and Nancy’s Blushes) and some more neutral. But there are 4 key colours from the range that are quietly stylish and set to be the Farrow & Ball colours of choice for 2014. Both uplifting and comforting they are easy to live with yet rich in pigment. Purbeck Stone is my favourite…which sample pots will you be ordering?

    Rifle Paper city maps

    by  • Wednesday, September 18, 2013 • Look what I found • 4 Comments

    I’ve got a bit of a thing for maps. Framed on the wall, please. I have a lovely black and white vintage map of France that is next in line to be framed but for now, as a temporary measure, it’s stuck to my living room wall with a little washi tape in each corner. Ever a fan of San Francisco based stationery brand, Rifle Paper Co., I spotted these beauties at the Paperchase press show a few months back and noticed that Papermash are also stocking them. £35 each (28cm by 36cm). I like.
