Lisa's happy Parisien home

Tuesday, 25 October 2016

I'm in the mood for something bright and cheerful today, how about you?! Want to come with me to explore the happy Parisien home of Lisa, blogger behind Make My Lemonade, Creative director at Lemonade Studio and Wear lemonade? Addicted to yellow and sequins, Lisa lives by the philosophy: 'if life gives you lemons, make lemonade.' Love that! Her lovely apartment in the 10th arrondissement of Paris is full of quirky one off pieces and touches of pink, blue, green, and of course yellow! Bienvenue!

This makes me want to go home and add splashes of yellow everywhere - how about you?! It's just such a happy colour!

A few items I know and love in Lisa's home: Petite Friture suspension vertigo (pink light) - also seen in this home, Eames side chairs, Eames rocker, sheepskin throw, source banana leaf fabric by the yard here (love this!). Pick up rattan sunburst mirrors here.

For equally cheerful style inspiration check out the full post on Inside Closet and Lisa's website Make My Lemonade

The colours and textures in this home remind me of some of the lovely homes from The Netherlands I've featured- don't you think? 

Have a happy day!

A calm Swedish home with a blue bedroom

Monday, 24 October 2016

It's amazing just how much colour has crept into homes over the past year. I'm not talking bright eye-catching hues, but more 'earthy' washed-out hues in green, blue and grey. Have you noticed this too? Some are going all out (like in Friday's home) other, for a more subtle approach. I visited a Norwegian apartment a few weeks ago and the owner (an artist) had painted the hallway a dramatic black. But open one of the doorways leading off it and you were transported into a warren of light and airy white rooms. I loved the element of surprise. In this home stylist Emma Fischer has decided to add a blue accent to the master bedroom, while keeping the rest of the flat a cool white / off white / pale grey. It adds so much interest to the space - and such an inspiring way to add colour - don't you think?

What a calm room to wake up to each day. Lovely! 

Could you imagine having this tone in your bedroom?

Get the look: Bedroom - For a blue tone that works for your room try one of these. Z1 cotton pendant by Ay Illuminate, white linen duvet cover, Ant chair, try here for a bumling table lamp in brass. Kitchen - Menu chair, sheepskin throw. Sitting room - House Doctor vase. Children's bedroom - bed canopy, bunting.

I do love a little blue in the home - this Swedish home has lovely, subtle hints of it (that conservatory!) and this one features different tones around the apartment from the softest blue-green in the sitting room to a deep, dramatic hue in the kitchen - beautiful!

Have a great start to the week!
