Profile

I am an Interior Designer with an obsession for all things vintage! I am inspired by lots of different decorating styles including shabby chic, New England style, French, rustic country house style and over the past couple of years I’ve been really drawn to spaces with industrial elements such as tarnished metal lighting and furniture, exposed pipe work and reclaimed brick. I like to decorate with an eclectic mix of aged, salvaged pieces of furniture, quirky vintage finds, French and Swedish antiques in chalky whites, greys, blues and greens. I like to incorporate salvaged architectural finds into my interiors and I’m a big fan of re-purposing and upcycling furniture and I have a serious soft spot for reclaimed wood. I generally prefer to decorate with whites and neutrals as it offers more versatility but my main objective when decorating a room is to make sure there is plenty of character, interest, personality, warmth and texture. This blog is simply a scrapbook of some home inspiration, ideas and the things I love. It is a creative outlet and if nothing else, I would hope this blog provides some eye candy for you to enjoy when you want to get away from it all!

  3. Seriously, I could have written that profile about me. Especially the French and Swedish antiques in chalk white. I tend to be a little eclectic too, mashing more than one style together.
    You mentioned you liked a little industrial element and salvage. I’ve been following a Blog at WordPress that you might like. It’s “Hammer Like A Girl”. A group of girlfriends that do amazing things with old junk in the coolest way and add a lot of wit to their tutorials too. Here’s a link to a recent project, but their all great :)
