i was just sourcing a bit of interior design inspiration as i’m heading home home this weekend to decorate my old bedroom, and stumbled upon this gem. urm. NICE. that’s a nice bit of mid-century modern going on there! anyway, i’m thinking i’m gonna go for a blue/grey statement wall, and the rest white… we shall see!

other than that, my course is going really well and i’m completely loving it. hopefully i’ll share some of my work over on my new blog soon! eek!

as promised some photos of our super relaxing holiday in greece. there was lots of reading, swimming,  sunbathing, greek salad, greek yoghurt, nice wine and snoozing. But there was also exploring white sandy beaches, beautiful cliff top walks and walking through white walled alleys in skiathos town. i couldn’t get enough of the colourful shutters, the lines of washing in the sunshine and the crazy electric wires.

soooooo pretty! take me back……..

images by me. you can see some of my instagram snaps here too!

lovely inspiring artwork by rachel castle, who fran disovered ages ago. i really love the simple compositions and striking colours of these paintings and prints. i think a few of these pieces would look so fab in plain frames on a big white wall, don’t you? yeay neon!

i’ll share some photos of greece soon, promise, maybe…!

it’s official. i’m starting a bigger, longer and much more scarier graphic design course in just four short weeks. the course i did this spring and summer was short and sweet, but i loved it all the same. it helped to reassure me that i definitely want to be doing something more creative with my life. something i’ve known for a long time, to be honest. so i’ve made the big decision to go for it… it took me a loooong time! turns out i’m not all that good at making big decisions these days. seriously, when i was 22 i got back from travelling around asia, and moved to london on a whim with no money and no job. HA! what was i thinking?! that actually all worked out though, so there you go… anyyyway… i’m determined to throw myself in to this and make the most of it. horray! excited. nervous. mostly excited. so, to get the ball rolling, some stuff i’ve seen and loved lately…

my old cath kidston iphone case is on it’s last legs, i seriously need to get me a replacement and i’m very much liking the look of these…

colourful, fun patterns. love. which is your favourite? i’m edging towards the gold and neutral triangles myself! sorry posts are still few and far between, life is still very very busy and i can’t imagine that’ll change anytime soon! we’re flying off to guernsey tomorrow morning for another wedding, so have a good weekend y’all!

i love the idea of hanging a huge painting somewhere prominent in your home, to make a proper feature of the art. i used to paint big pictures a lot when i was younger, but haven’t for a while, mostly due to lack of space. but i’d really like to take it up again. i think you could base the style of a whole room on a painting, and love how these paintings look on these big blank walls.

this last image – wow! image 1 / image 2 / image 3

whoo hoo, the four day jubilee weekend is here! i know i should be sharing a lovely red white and blue themed post, and all things union jack, but i only got into the jubilee spirit in the last couple of days so haven’t been on the look out for that, although it is EVERYWHERE in london! i have plans to catch up with friends tomorrow and some other bits and bobs, but i’m hoping to spend much of the four days relaxing, and probably indoors as the sunshine has disappeared! i’m going to take some inspiration from these gorgeous photos by phillipa stanton

yes. well, our dining table isn’t quite this beautiful, but i can do tea, flowers, fresh fruit, juice, salad and maybe a bit of arts and crafts… that sounds pretty good to me. whatever you’re up to this weekend, i hope you have a good one!

you can see more of these beautiful photos on phillipa’s blog 5ftinf.
