The Natural Home By Hans Blomquist

The best part of the job is receiving fabulous design books, seriously I cannot get enough. I was so excited when I received a copy of The Natural Home. A gorgeous book by Swedish art director and stylist, Hans Blomquist, where the essence of his evocative and painterly style is totally explored.

At the heart of this book is Hans' love for nature, which inspires his trademark atmospheric displays and quirky interiors. The Natural Home reveals key facets of Hans' unique look. The second part of the book also shows us around real life homes that convey  elegance and simplicity of the natural look.  

With sublime photography by Debi Treloar, this book is truly captivating and I was left wanting more and more eye candy to flick through.

Wedding Inspiration

Hello my lovelies sorry for the long silence on the blog but lately it has been a very hectic period. Not only am I working on the finishing touches for Heart Home magazine's Summer issue but I'm busy trying to organise my big move to Italy. And then I get some exciting news, a friend of mine is getting married next year sometime and would love me to help her style her wedding. I cannot hide my excitement - how fun can this be. I love weddings, it's the hopeless romantic in me.

It is always this time of the year that wedding season comes to full swing. I already have a few to go to in the summer and I cannot wait. This lovely weather is putting me in a great mood and I'm already plotting away...
