MY SHELFIE UPDATE {IN PARTNERSHIP WITH WAYFAIR & IVYLINE}

Shelfie with Ivyline

I’m quite partial to a shelfie. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I’m always faffing with my pots, vases and candlesticks to curate new assortments, and glazed ceramics are my current obsession.

So when Wayfair asked if I wanted to showcase some of their latest indoor plant pots from Ivyline, I jumped at the chance.

I’m always looking at new ways to update my shelves and fireplace mantels, so to be given the opportunity to dress my house plants in glossier, crackled effect pots was an easy win.

Our spare bedroom is painted in a dark rich green and has brass accents, so I chose three items which complemented these tones perfectly.

First was a large plant pot, called the Como cachepot in sage green which I filled with a large succulent, the second are two smaller pots which I planted two small cacti in, and the third was a brass Terrarium which I planted three small succulents in and covered with small garden stones. **Disclaimer : when putting your hand in a terrarium, choose succulents over cacti. Unless you’re extremely flexible at dodging the thornes**. These pots have a gorgeous crackled effect, and a raw ceramic edge around the top. I’m in love with the shades of greens and the textures between the glazing and natural look. I think the sage and teal colours pop beautifully against the wall colour in my spare room.

I then faffed about with the display of my new pots, moving them from the fireplace mantel to the top of the chest of drawers. For now they will live on the fireplace mantle. It’s a much brighter spot, and great for some natural sunlight (Plus, I can see it every time I walk past the room).

I’d love to know where your favourite spot for a shelfie is?

COAT RACKS- MY PICK OF THE BEST

This month’s pick of the best is all about coat racks and hooks. Yep, random I know. But sometimes it’s the little things which are the hardest to source, and it’s no secret that I’m into the detail.

In the lead up to decorating our hallway/ landing it got me thinking about the little details which I’ll want to add and a new coat rack was one of them. Then once I started doing my own research I thought I’d share my top picks with you lovely bunch.

We currently have individual hooks from Anthropologie which are lovely but were a nightmare to line up, and space out evenly which is why I’d recommend going for a fixed plate set like any of these.

The main thing to consider is practicality over style. Our hallway is less than a meter wide so we can’t have anything which includes a shelf as it will stick out too much… although I do love them. Definitely one for the next house! 

**My favourites are number one and five. Both are from West Elm. The only thing that’s putting me off is West Elm’s customer care. After we bought a dining table and chairs from them, we had and are still having terrible service to replace a scratched chair. But annoyingly they do offer the most stylised versions of coat racks available in the UK.

My third favourite is number three, the three-piece brass and black hook rack from Cox and Cox. But with only three hooks its not a practical choice. Which is your favourite?

{INTERIOR DECOR} HELENA'S KITCHEN TRANSFORMATION

I love sharing home renovations with you. In my opinion there’s no better feeling, than the feeling of accomplishment when its all over and you can finally enjoy all the hard work and expense.  All of the blood, sweat and tears which have gone into a project, or in most cases, the bad backs, stress and sleepless nights. Especially if you’re doing the renovation yourself or project managing it.

When home owners Helena & Martin moved to Chalfont St Peter, they took on a new project; A four bedroom detached 1970’s house with tones of potential to be a beautiful family home. The main focus was modernising the home with new fixtures, fittings and decor. First up, the kitchen.
