{HOUSE LUST LOVES} EVE TOWELS

What a busy few months it’s been!

In the past 2 months since I last post I’ve been to New York, Copenhagen, Berlin, Paris, Seoul, Nanjing, Dalian and Shanghai and all for the love of work.

To say I’m glad to be home is a bit of an understatement. Sometimes you just can’t beat some home comforts like sleeping in your own bed, drinking English breakfast tea and being able to write your blog (ha that’s just a personal one for me!). I’ve just returned this week to a delivery of fresh towels and the fluffiest bath robe wrapped in yellow ribbons from the kind people at Eve

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} HOUSE OF FRASER HOME SS17 PREVIEW

Are palm trees the new Pineapples? I think they might be. 

All hail the palm tree table lamp in all its glory, and its pals the palm tree candle sticks.

This week I was invited to the House of Fraser SS17 press preview. It might be November, and I don’t want to start wishing Christmas away quite yet, but how nice is it to start thinking about summer and what’s to come for 2017.

So here goes. Get ready for some serious summer swooning...

{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.

{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} 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} WOODLAND CUSHIONS & NURSERY THEMES

I definitely have a cushion obsession!

 Stacked up on the bed, or piled up on the sofa, my mantra is ‘there’s no such thing as having too many cushions’, nor did anyone ever say they had too many! Here I explore new designers on Etsy and look at nursery ideas and themes.

{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.

{HOUSE LUST LOVES} IF APPLE DID FISH TANKS....

 In a world of home decor, we don't expect fish tanks to fit into our spaces as we would a sofa or a side table. But then again, we didn't expect the clever kids at BiOrb to design a range of sleek and modern fish tanks which are not only affordable, but are family friendly, stylish and modern. Here I explore the other BiOrb tanks and show you how cute a BiOrb tank can look in any home.
