Inspiration: black marble

Tuesday, 11 February 2014


Ever since I saw black marble in the bathroom of a restaurant we ate at recently I haven't stopped thinking about it! They'd used a combination of large rectangle tiles and small hexagons and it gave the space such a luxurious feel. I 'm loving it combined with the brass fixtures in these reference images.

Aiayu

A slight obsession with bedlinen has been passed down from my Mum so when I came across this Bolivian made organic cotton bedding, I had to have it. Aiayu has the most amazing ranges of clothing, throws, cushions and sheets all ethically made in Bolivia. The cotton sheets are so incredibly soft and a nice change from linen. I'm loving their beautifully simple styling too.

Christmas crafting

Saturday, 21 December 2013

I love making things for family and friends around Christmas time. Last year I did sugar free chocolate and nut truffles but decided to give people the real deal this year and made rocky road. I used cute little treat bags from Robert Gordon and kikki.K and and made a personalised tag for everyone. Merry Christmas!






Brick

Just another little something to feed my obsession with brass and copper. 'Brick' is a traditional flip clock designed by Erwin Termaat for LEFF. Available from Leibal.

Inspiration: home studio

Tuesday, 26 November 2013

Now that things have somewhat settled down at our place (you could almost say our renovations are finished), it has been a good time to start on setting up my home studio. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time but have never had the space. I'm going to use our attic which is actually quite big and has a skylight so the natural light is great. I have visions of laying timber flooring up there and painting it peach, but I have to get that past 'the boss' first! Here's some of my inspiration.
