Something I made With Interflora

I was lucky to have been invited to attend the Interflora flower school. Their first class kicked off on Wednesday and it was a truly fun experience. Exactly what Carole and I needed, a well deserved break from our computer screens and getting a bit creative.

I made a lovely themed basket from scratch and was rather pleased with my result. It is now sitting pretty in my living room, so I can officially say I have started with the Christmas decorations ;)

Have a lovely weekend my lovelies! I will be busy making final edits on our second issue of Heart Home magazine. Less than 2 weeks now before launch and can I say it is looking rather lovely ;)

Weekend In Amsterdam With Mariska Meijers

Happy Monday everyone! Busy few weeks over here as the team and I at Heart Home magazine are very busy putting issue 2 together. Only two and a half weeks left before it goes live on December 8th! I cannot wait, it's looking fabulous and I am not being biased, promise ;)

This weekend Carole and I spent it in Amsterdam where we are covering a feature with the talented and amazing artist Mariska Meijers. We had an amazing time with this generous and kind spirited woman. We also got to know the talented Wouter Van Ierssel who was our photographer on location. Also a big thank you to The College Hotel for accommodating us at their beautiful hotel! Thank you all for making this a fun and memorable weekend. 

More shall be revealed in the upcoming issue of Heart Home Magazine of what we got up to ;)

Today I'm Loving... Rebecca J Coles

I discovered Rebecca J Coles this year at Origin. A paper artist whose work currently focuses on the reinvention of entomological cataloguing, display and the assemblage of shapes. By de-constructing various paper ephemera, Rebecca creates unique works of art. I found her designs to be totally enchanting and captivating. I literally was completely mesmerised and summered when seeing her work at the exhibition. Astounded by the delicate details, as each piece must take forever to compose. This really reflects her passion in what she does. Here are a few images of her work...

Showstoppers From Clarke & Clarke

I love the new wall paper collections from Clarke & Clarke. Showstoppers is the name of the collection and as the name suggests it is full of eye candy and drop-dead gorgeous wallcoverings. 

A mix of both classic and contemporary patterns, accompanied by 30 colours, this collection is just insanely exquisite. From pretty floral feminine patterns to bold designs, a collection to suit all individual needs. So which one is your favourite?

Clockwise top left: Indira collection, Miranda collection, Wisteria collection, Hula collection.

Tahiti collection, Globetrotter collection, Kami collection, Dahlia collection.

Black & White Interiors

Black & white interiors are bang on trend and for this time of the year it feels just perfect. Glamorous, spacious and so sleek it is one of my favourite combinations. For some they may be boring or cold but for me they really light up a room. Here are a selection of some of my favourite spaces.
