Interior inspiration from the House of Dior

Love grey?

There is plenty of interior inspiration from The House of Dior in London.

20 different sculptures are placed around the store and all are amazing, 
ranging from art work, pieces of furniture and lighting.

Colour inspiration for your home

There is always an opportunity for colour inspiration while out and about.

Shopping in Liberty recently I noticed these balls of wool on display.

The colours are perfect for Autumn/Winter decor in your home.

You may already have some colours in your home but had not thought
about putting another colour with your scheme.

Inspiration is everywhere.

Where do you find your colour inspiration?

The House of Dior

I recently visited The House of Dior at New Bond Street, London.

This room display stood out to me with the beautiful pink wallpaper
with bee motif.

The grey, white and pink colour scheme is just so elegant.

Grey is a colour which runs all through the House of Dior from art
sculptures, flooring to furniture.

It's worth a look just at the decor in here and the icing on the cake 
are the products to purchase!

Fantastic floorings

I've recently been looking at floorings for my own home.

I visited House of Fraser for something else and noticed their 
great range of carpets so needed to explore!

I noticed this tartan design which really stood out to me.

I also love stripes, especially for the stairs.

House of Fraser also sell laminate flooring, which I didn't realise.

I'm still considering my options for the stairs, stripe, tartan, plain, a runner .......

Light fantastic!

Out shopping this week I noticed this gorgeous chandelier.

I love how some of the shades aren't straight and some bulbs are out.

​"Module 2 provides a plethora of inspiration on how to use colour, how colour works with itself, and how it works with light. It’s fascinating and informative, and will be a big help when planning future projects! The quiz part of the module was great fun, and showed me easily what I needed to study more!"
"Module 3 was really helpful in getting me to plan my projects and stick to a budget! The budget planners provided in the course materials were extremely helpful, and working out how I can creatively reuse what I already have to reduce the spending was a revelation - my bank account will thank me!"

"Module 4 was fascinating, seeing my ideas come to life on paper and then with the online room planner, and being able to see which ideas work and which don't was extremely helpful!"

Who is the hero in your house?

Have you got a hero piece of furniture in your home?

A great statement piece is your headboard.

You can go as large as you want, adding colour, texture or pattern.

Have you seen this colour app?

I came across this app and have been playing with it this week.

The Valspar Colour Wand app has an inspire button
which is great if you are looking for ideas.

You can save the images and then you are provided with the exact 
colour code for the valspar paint you need to achieve the palette colours.

The app is free, download to your phone and create a free account.

Bedroom update

I love velvet at this time of year.

I've updated the white bedroom with grey stripe bed
linen and velvet cushions and throw.

These gorgeous blue cushions are from H & M.

The pink blush cushion is from Cox and Cox.

A perfect place to snuggle up in to read when the
weather turns cold outside.

Colour inspiration

Have you seen a particular room you love in a magazine
or online?

You can achieve a very similar look yourself by picking the
colours you love from the image.

This kitchen has quite neutral colours but the deep pink makes
the colours pop.

You could add the pink in a scheme with the accessories as above, also around
the dining table, with curtains, blinds, cushions, rugs.

Because the colour isn't on anything permanent you can change the hero
colour for the seasons.

Show home styling

I recently visited this show home and had to share the lounge images.

Most of the room is neutral, the walls, flooring and large pieces of furniture.

The colour has been added in accessories, the footstool and curtains.

By decorating this way in your own home it is so easy to update
colours and accessories for different seasons at a low cost.

To get this room ready for Autumn you may want to choose darker greens and 
pinks/purples for the  cushions and add a couple of cosy throws.

Hello Autumn!

How you can make or break a room

Accessories can make or break a room.

Hunt down great accessories to make a feature and talking 
point in your home.

I love this robot light, I've never seen one like this before.

I want one!

It's perfect for a child's room or study and is great
for industrial styling.
