Union Jack-inspired boys bedroom!

This was the bedroom that got me thinking, I LOVE bedrooms inspired by the colours of the Union Jack flag...and, best of all, incorporating the flag itself....

Are Boys Bedrooms Too Pretty?

The problem I find with many beautifully designed boys bedrooms is that they look, simply put, too pretty. I often help my clients to work through this very issue. You should be looking to strike the balance so that everyone is thrilled with the result!

This room is gorgeous but hanging hearts on the chest of drawers? Beading on the blinds? Really?!!

How To Create Belgian Style...Industrial Chic...

When looking through past posts, I came upon a series on How To Create Belgian Style and it made me remember just how much I love Belgian Style. Understated and gorgeous!

Let's take a look today at the industrial edge of Belgian Style...

Getting the balance right between old and new is the key of how to create Belgian Style in your home. Too much old and the look becomes fusty. Too much new and it loses it's country edge. 

Soft Industrial is a term I use to describe the adding of artifacts with a slight architectural feel to a living space, which add interest and character, and it works perfectly combined with Belgian Style.

It's important to emphasise here that the look is one of a gentle nod to an industrial past, rather than anything too hard-edged.

If you want to find out more about Belgian Style, click here to see my previous posts....

Isn't it beautiful! I love the way that it's so beautiful AND so livable! I hope this gives you a clearer idea about how to create Belgian Style with an industrial edge in your home...

Coastal Cottage House Tour

The weather has been f-f-freezing over the past few days. We've had occasional flirts of sunshine - lulling you into fantasies of gallivanting into town coat-less...only to find that you're being entirely premature because it's still firmly winter!

So let's make the very most of these final wrapping-up-warm days by taking a virtual snoop around The Oyster Catcher. 

A simple former fishing house placed right next to the harbour in a little seaside town in West Cornwall.

The Oyster Catcher

The interior is a restful blend of greys and white, with plenty of natural textures to keep things interesting.

The Oyster Catcher is Grade II listed and was built in the 17th century. An oldie but a goodie!

Isn't it gorgeous?

Modern Country Coastal Style interiors at its best!
