Still waiting for some sunshine? How about some of the following to keep the sunshine present despite it still being a tad cloudy.
My discovery of the day = Evie Kemp, an illustrator based in Auckland, New Zealand. The colours are amazing and I really would have a hard time choosing my favourite. I do have a soft spot for The Cantankerous Print (the grumpy cat), but I adore the colours in The Flamingo. I’d love to have a collection of 4 or 5 displayed together. Yet something else to add to the wishlist!
Following on from my Spring loving post last week, I’ve since been finding florals! Florals are a great way to add some femininity to a space, whether it’s for an extra touch of colour or as a starting point to a moodboard.
Go all-out with a whole chair or sofa. Keep the rest of the room neutral to keep this the centre piece but then pick out some of the colours within the pattern to use for additional cushions, and accessories.
How about some bedlinen as a more temporary way to get into this style?
Some curtains to tie it all together? I love this purple sofa and the curtain behind it even more so.
Black and white is a bit more subtle, but these curtains stop this room from being too stark.
For some finishing touches, and a cheaper way to spruce up a space, here a few floral extras that I love.
I’ve developed a grey crush. For me, it’s that little bit more interesting than white and I can’t get enough.
I love this polished cement look for bathroom walls. It gets rid of the nasty grout, so not only making it easier to clean but also making it look so much more finished and elegant. The texture of the concrete also brings some extra depth that a painted grey couldn’t and I think the black floor is perfect to still keep the clean look you want for a bathroom. If it’s too stark for you, I’d suggest adding some colourful artwork above the toilet, or even a brightly painted mirror like below.
Using grey in a bedroom is equally as calming. I love this blend of grey and white to create a crisp fresh room that I would have no trouble relaxing in! The styling above the bed as well as the gorgeous side tables from Graham and Green really prevent the room from looking bland and uninviting. The only thing I’d change is the light, maybe with a more colourful pendant light such as this – the yellow has my vote!
Breaking away from grey and yellow, grey works equally well with pastels. Look at all these lovely colours you could blend it with!
For the opposite of pastels, use a dark grey with some bright, textured fabrics to create this sheek, moody look below.
I love the touches of neon!
Here are a few of my furniture picks!
