Get a French Provincial Interior Look in Your Home

A French provincial style interior is one of the most requested and popular decorating and furnishing styles worldwide. I love this look! Its fresh, inviting and does not over dominate a space… one of the best things is that French provincial furnishing mix so well back with other styles without too much clash.

 

 

I found these interiors so inspiring to create these combos with some of my favourite pieces…

 

   

 The above is my idea of classic French provincial! Antique Whites, creams and gorgeous ornate details… Below is my favourite version of French provincial… French Blues and classic shaped French furniture with rustic blacks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outdoor furniture looks I love right now!

I love outdoor furniture! In summer I adore reclining outside in summer with a gorgeous cold drink and the newest edition of vogue! Every outdoor furniture suite looks best with lots of fresh plants and flowers so make sure you plan a trip to the nursery as well!

 

The above look is so sophisticated! It’s my favourite…

 

The above look is a bit more lively and eclectic this would be perfect for a townhouse or small courtyard.

 

Get your balcony, outdoor or courtyard ready for some relaxation before spring!

 

 

 

 

Host a Dinner Party in Style!

If your anything like me and love entertaining then you will love my tips for creating a gorgeous table! First impressions count! Making your guests feel at home with gorgeous surroundings is half the battle!

 

Look for classic combinations with playful quirks! I adore these Riedal glasses and Anna Chandler plates are perfect for print looks!

 

 Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc is my favourite drop for during dinner… it has a nice taste but isn’t too dry or over-powering.

 

 

This round crystal chandelier sends a sophisticated message to your visitors! I love them grouped together in this image!

 If all else fails go with the classics: ivory, crystal, fresh-cut flowers and silverware!

 

Have a lovely week!

 

 

 

 

Lets style a coffee table!

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!
