Scandi Style | Pastel Perfect

Saturday, October 31, 2015





 


 




 This season I am loving understated chalky pastel hues.

Warmer weather calls for a soft and pretty update.
Try freshening things up with accents in blush pink, baby blue and mint.
Mix in some Scandi style accessories to keep your home right on trend.

Mediterranean Vacation Style

Thursday, October 29, 2015













I am dying tor a long holiday.

It's been literally ages since I have had a decent holiday.
Buying a new house and renovating it from the ground up is a financial killer.
Then running your own business means I find it impossible to get away, 
even if I could afford it!!
The thing about blogging is in takes me to beautiful places
and it's a little mental escape without costing a penny!
So today I'm dreaming of Italy and
romantic restaurants, local vino, fruity gelatis,
sorbet coloured villas and pretty fishing boats bobbing on azure waters.
It's sunny and the air is ringing with laughter,
teenagers race past on scooters, everyone is suntanning on the beach
 and my holiday wardrobe is full of bright colours, stripes and bold prints.
What a beautiful place to escape to!

Mid Century Modern

I was born in the sixties and grew up with furniture like this
so it makes me laugh to seeing it all come back into fashion.
I hate thinking that I could possibly be that old!!!
Furniture stores are full of sixties and mid century pieces this season.
I have just finished a renovation project on a sixties beach house
 so when it came to picking a style and finding pieces to furnish it with
~ it was apiece of cake!
 Our timing could not have been better.
It's a great style for a beach house as you can pick up these pieces
for bargain prices at garage sales, flea markets or on ebay.
This style can also be mixed back with Scandinavian style pieces to create
a new twist on this classic look.

Classic Navy & Brown | Hamptons Style

Tuesday, October 27, 2015








 
Navy & Brown by Coastal Style Blog


Loving this colour combo!

Team navy with chocolatey brown tones
for a classic interior that's rich and warm.
It's a popular combination for a traditional Hamptons home.
The chocolate may be incorporated in different ways such as
stained timber floorboards,
a brown leather chesterfield, a club chair
or perhaps a piece of vintage or antique furniture.
