Lets style a coffee table!

Quote

There is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeously styled coffee table. It’s the perfect place to display all of your lovely nic-naks and coffee table books, not hiding them away on a bookshelf. I found these lovely pics, which give you perfect inspiration along with my tips to create this in your home 🙂

1. Play with colour and scale. Stacking smaller books on top of larger ones creates height and interest. Flowers are a great choice to accent colours from either your books, or from your interior. 

              

 2. Use decorative pieces. Any cute, small decorative pieces you have picked up at the markets, vintage shop or even at auction should be displayed on your coffee table… the qwirkier the better! I especially love that little crab! 🙂

 3. Keep it simple. Use shades and textures which compliment each other: Glass, crystal and metals look fab together… so do enamel, matt and gemstones… choose one accent pieces and keep the rest complimentary!

4. Don’t forget about the coffee table! Having a gorgeously styled coffee table will not hide an ugly canvas… Pick a table that will compliment your room. One of the best tips I can give those of you who have invested in a fabulous rug is to invest in a lovely glass coffee table, allow the rest of the elements in your room sing too 🙂

        Have a lovely week everyone!

Sun, Cocktails and Massages! Destination: Bali

I have never been to Bali, but its on the list… I could not get over the beauty of the images I found illustrating this amazing place. I’m not surprised that so many people flock to Bali for a cheap and relaxing holiday… it looks divine, don’t you think?

I think I need to make a booking, what do you think of Bali??

nǐ hǎo! Destination: China.

My partner is flying off to China in merely days, whilst being slightly jealous I’m also a little heart-sick as I know I’m going to miss him so much! I decided to slightly distract myself from the lack of a man hanging around, and instead completely immerse myself in asian inspired decorating styles. It wasn’t hard to get some great inspiration… check out these fab pics…

      I was very easily inspired, but if you want to create an asian inspired look in your home… I warn you… Keep it a mix of modern and asian furnitures, the last thing you want your home to look like is a set from a Jackie Chan movie!

mmmm well I’m off to order some Chinese Food…

Lets ride a Giraffe! Destination: Africa

Africa is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to decorating! I love it to death… It is also one of the only styles which is produced predominately in its country of origin… got to love that! Have a look at my African decorating guide!

There is pretty much nothing that I love more than brightly coloured cowhide… It’s so textural and unexpected! The below rug goes on my wish-list! It is so well made and is simply stunning to look at!

I love the textural and nomadic touches of African style… It’s natural, unfussy and has a masculine edge. What do you think?

Bonjour Monsieur! Destination…. France!!

Bonjour!!!

France is a magical destination… the food, the shopping & those stylish women pounding pavement everyday. The last time I visited France I went to Paris and Nice. I was constantly impressed by the most stunning women, dressed impeccably running off to meetings or to lunch dates. There is something magical about this country… with such a rich history and a very popular decorating style it is one of my favourites!

Ornate furniture pieces with touches of gold and silver. Luxe textures and shapes are the epitome of the French decorating style! Look at these amazing inspirational pics 🙂

Well I’m off to buy a beret and a croissant…
