{SHOPPING} HOMEWARE SHOPPING IN BERLIN

{SHOPPING} HOMEWARE SHOPPING IN BERLIN

If I walk past a homeware store, I can't help but go in. You just never know what you might find, especially if I’m in a new city or area which I’ve never been to before. Last week I was in Berlin and found myself in the area of Fredrichshain, where two shops selling quirky homeware accessories caught my eye. Click here to read more.

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} INSIDE GRACELAND

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} INSIDE GRACELAND

I’ve just made the pilgrimage to one the worlds most famous houses, Graceland. Home to Elvis Presley from 1957- until his death in 1977. Some of the rooms haven’t been decorated since 1974 with predominately chrome and glass themes. From lightening bolts painted onto walls in the film room, to the shag pile carpets on the ceiling and walls in the ‘Jungle room’. Graceland was as much a family home, as it was a play house for one of our biggest icons.

{SHOPPING} DRAPER JAMES, NASHVILLE USA

I'm currently travelling around the south of the states with my husband , and I thought it was time I kept you in the loop with my findings. 

Today I discovered Draper James in Nashville, Tennessee. A kitsch lifestyle brand owned by actress Reese Witherspoon. Who knew she acted and designed home ware and clothing?

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATIONS

 

My house plant mantra is ‘go full foliage or go home’ and ‘the leafier the prettier’ -  yep I do actually say that. So when I saw these prints today, I couldn’t believe I could combine my love of house plants with my love of art.

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} THE PINK PEPPER TREE HOTEL

If you follow me anywhere online*, you might have seen that I’ve just returned from a trip to Majorca. Don’t worry, I’ve not suddenly become the next Judith Charmers and decided to ditch interior blogging for travel writing. I’ve just never been so excited to write about a hotel before, until now.

{SHOPPING} BRASS & MARBLE COFFEE TABLES - MY PICK OF THE BEST

{SHOPPING} BRASS & MARBLE COFFEE TABLES - MY PICK OF THE BEST

I don’t know about you, but I’m always adding and changing bits of my home. I don’t think a house is ever “finished”. For me it’s one long continuous lifelong process to add and evolve. This also keeps my home fresh and contemporary, and it also stops me getting bored with one particular style. 

My latest obsession is a new coffee table. When we bought our home we didn’t have any spare money so we’ve been using an old vintage trunk as a table. The trunk which has fantastic storage looks a bit heavy (its dark blue and trimmed in black and brass), so I’m now on the lookout for something a little more grown up. Something ideally made of my two favourite materials- MARBLE & BRASS!

{SHOPPING} THE DIY WORD BANNER

{SHOPPING} THE DIY WORD BANNER

I recently threw a going away bash for a friend who was going travelling and I wanted a personalised banner to send her on her way.

Personalised banners can be expensive and a waste of money if they can’t be re-used, so I went in search of something  I could re-use depending on the event.

{SHOPPING} HOUSE PLANT SHOPPING

{SHOPPING} HOUSE PLANT SHOPPING

Last weekend I decided our house needed more green so I took myself off to our local garden centre in pursuit of finding a hardy house plant to fill a space in our kitchen/ diner. 
The obsession started over Easter when my mother in-law bought us a small house plant which has since sat proudly on our kitchen shelf, and most importantly is still alive! 
I love how house plants can instantly change the atmosphere of a room. They not only brighten up a drab space with a punch of green, but they can add style and a sense of health.

{SHOPPING} MARBLE TRAYS - MY PICK OF THE BEST

{SHOPPING} MARBLE TRAYS - MY PICK OF THE BEST

I’m currently having a moment with marble trays.

It all started when I came across one at Hay design whilst deciding how I could merge their chic Danish design into my little eclectic home.

I never thought a piece of carved stone could look so stylish. I would normally associate marble with high end bathrooms and kitchens, so I loved the idea of bringing a touch of luxury into our home as an accessory

{SHOPPING} DRINKS TROLLEY- MY PICK OF THE BEST

{SHOPPING} DRINKS TROLLEY- MY PICK OF THE BEST

If you follow me on instagram, then you'll know that I'm OBSESSED with drink trolleys! So much so, that I even call Fridays 'Bar cart Friday' in homage to these beauts! This meant for my first product post it had to be about my favourite piece of furniture.  I've researched the offer us Brits have, as lets face it we don't have the best Interior shops in the UK (unlike our lucky friends across the ponds). Ranging from those on a budget to the super expensive...
