friday fancies ...

Hello all,

Finally Friday is here, hurrah! With an entire weekend off I plan to get inspired, organised and continue on my crafting head dress mission.

Talking about getting organised, what better place to start than my overloaded and cramped desktop. Throughout the week I tend to litter my desktop with inspirational images however it seems that not even half of them end up in my posts, something to do with too much choice and not enough time.

With this I thought a great way for me to use the copious amounts of images which I collect throughout the week would be to create a Friday inspiration board, this will give you an insight into what has inspired me throughout the week and what will hopefully trigger some creations over the weekend. Whether it's the colours used in the images, the subject, theme or texture my Friday posts will be a way for me to collate my favourite images which convey my weekly inspiration in the most simplistic and hopefully pretty way.

So here goes, my weekly inspiration.

Welcome to Friday Fancies.

What has inspired you this week?

bloom ...

Hello all,

Forgive my lack of posting recently, I have been tres busy with work, family and planning and crafting for the exciting adventure of Bestival. I can't help but mention my excitement, a full five days of music, hopeful sunshine and colour. In preparation I've started making some rather exciting head dresses, Bestival is well known for it eclectic mix of fashion and costumes, my take on this is all about the head dress.

I've become a little obsessed with imagery which will inspire my head dress or as some darlings would describe them - "crowns". I'm a huge fan of wild flowers, the messier and more natural the better I say so I've been on the hunt for some beautiful artificial flowers, twine and leaves. Mixing these three important aspects with a sprinkling of beads and pearls and a length or so of ribbon, I think my creations are coming along rather nicely. But whilst I finish up I thought I'd share some of the images which have fed my recent addiction. I hope to have my head dresses finished by next week so be sure to look out for a post of the final looks!

Bloomin' lovely, don't you think?

colour me happy ...

Hello all,

So as we can't rely on the brightness of the summer sunshine as the weather is somewhat schizophrenic at the moment I've decided to bring my own bit of sunshine to the table through weekly "colour me happy" posts.

As colour is the driving force to most of my design inspiration it makes sense for me to dedicate a weekly post  to my favourite colours and combinations. I'll be using inspirational images to showcase the colours/combinations along with selecting products currently on the market which use the colour(s). 

So here goes.

Lovely interior inspiration, from small introductions of colour to statement art work and furniture, this colour combination is fresh and contemporary.

Below I have selected some products which use these colours, if you don't fancy painting an entire wall one of these statement colours why not use a few of these products to implement this colour combination without having to commit to painting or wallpapering a room.

telephone -  Aria
shower curtain - Marimekko
floor mirrors - Graham and Green
chair - Graham and Green
