Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.

As it slowly warms up, and the thought of leaving work in daylight becomes an actual possibility (rather than a far-fetched dream), my interior design musings have undoubtedly taken on a spring-like flavour.

The concept of florals for spring is certainly predictable, and possibly even yawn inducing, however the floral wall coverings I've been day dreaming about lately are bold and impactful. I'm talking large scale, unapologetic, not so dainty wall coverings. These are not your nan's wall covering. These would leave even Miranda Priestly inspired.

The wallpapers above (both by Ellie Cashman) are artistic masterpieces. The rich dark colours are bang on whatever the season.

These wall mural and sticker examples are lighter and brighter, but still pack a visual punch.

Taking Shape

With the bedroom finito, I though a living room update was overdue. 

Though far from finished, this space is finally taking shape and feeling more like home. The space in front of the sofa has been filled with a ming-like coffee table, and the bare bulbs hanging overhead are now hidden behind giant white drum shades.

As the days get longer, the need for curtains is becoming more and more apparent, and the 10 ft windows certainly make it a tricky task. Also on the to-do list are 2 bolster pillows (in the sofa upholstery fabric), and 2 square pillows in the perfect shade of pale pink.

Here is what it looks like now:

Spot the kitty (and the plant she is in the middle of taking down, one leaf at a time).

The basket on the table holds all of our laptop wires, earphones, plugs - all the valuables the kitty has attempted to chew through.

 We're getting there.
