Back From Marrakech!

I'm back after an incredible time in Marrakech! What can I say except I had the most inspiring time surrounded by inspiring people. Arriving and staying at Peacock Pavilions was purely magical and meeting Maryam was extremely fascinating, an exceptionally kind & strong woman whom I can listen to her inspiring stories all day long.

Each and everyone of the girls I met on the retreat: Natalie, Fanny, Leni, Erika, Tawney and Bonnie will have a special place in my heart and I hope that our paths will cross again one day, as I am sure they will. It was great being surrounded by people that are so passionate and creative about life. I am also so happy that I shared this experience with my good friend Carole!

This whole week my blog will be dedicated to my trip to Morocco as I want to share with you every single snippet of my experience. An inspiring journey it truly was, so as soon as I sort out all of my lovely photos you will be able to experience it with me ;) From the food, the colours, the architecture, the shopping, the atmosphere, the people; Marrakech is definitely a place I will treasure...

Happy Weekend!

Have a fabulous weekend friends, Arianna Interiors will be taking a break for a whole week as I'm off to Marrakesh tomorrow with the lovely Carole from Dear Designer's blog. I cannot wait to share with all of you my photos and travel experience. Really looking forward to this break as I have been swamped with work and it is perfect to have this just before things become really manic. Have so many fantastic photoshoots lined up for Heart Home Magazine as soon as we are back so this is perfect timing. 

I leave you with some pretty inspirational images from the Ikea Blog - I have become such a fan of their styling pictures - aren't they great? This bedroom is just so pretty and feminine...

Happy Weekend ans see you soon! xxx

The Sleep Room

I don't know about you but I have always found it a mission to find beautiful beds at affordable prices. Usually it's the high end range where you have to break the bank or just cheap looking beds. So I'm really excited that I came across The Sleep Room. I have heard of them in the last year but last week I finally managed to visit their showroom and get up close and personal ;) I was so impressed by the quality and design of each bed. The details were impressive, the mattresses were so comfy and they had a range of lovely accessories too. I loved the fact their was a vast choice of designs and you can choose headboards and other details to your liking. All in all I was taken aback and what's so great, is they are really affordable, hooray! 

Sleep rooms was set up in January 2009 so it's a fairly new company! I am just really happy to have discovered this, no more bed dilemmas!

Today I'm Loving... Pip Studio

Well it won't come as a surprise as many of you have probably heard of this awesome brand but I just had to share my love for it today. Pip Studio always puts me in a happy mood and it's exactly how I am feeling today. I suppose it's the excitement and nerves of the launch of Heart Home Magazine! It really is an exciting time for me at the moment and I feel this has probably been translated a lot onto my blog. Lately I just seem to go for pretty, bright and feminine pieces... All in all this Danish brand really reflects the way that I am feeling lately - Just Happy!

Have a lovely Tuesday my lovelies and thanks so much regarding your support with Heart Home Magazine, it means the world x

Bloomingville is my kind of store, selling an extensive range of stunning products, this Danish brand is perfect to fill your interiors with warmth and cosiness. All products are designed in house so it certainly is a unique style which has a romantic vibe to it. Have a look at their website, their styling shots are just divine, wouldn't you agree?

A Restored Farmhouse

Hello my lovelies! It's great to be back, wow I have missed blogging on a regular basis so much! Hope you all had a lovely Easter break, I had a fabulous time and feel totally re-energised and relaxed and ready to take on so many exciting projects :) So while I am still reminiscing about my holiday, here are some gorgeous images that I came across of a restored farmhouse in the suburbs of Cremona, Italy. You can see how this house truly has retained its character intact. Completely tailored, it is in complete harmony with the the countryside. Blissful rustic elegance I say, makes me want to go away again ;)
