Interiors and Lifestyle Blog:For the eclectic and ever so slightly eccentric…
Colour – where would we be without it? In a dreary grey world! Which brings me to this fabulous new book, 1000 Ideas for Colour Schemes by Anna Starmer. Colour is a very personal reaction and everyone has their own preferences, but we don’t always know what accents to put together, or are unsure if our ideas are going to work, or if we will like the colours together.
1000 Ideas for Colour Schemes is literally 1000 ideas for colour, as every page is packed with the most glorious images to help you understand colour and how to use it.
We love wallpaper – we’ve always loved wallpaper – but now we have the choice of murals as well the decisions are endless! So many delicious designs to choose from. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite murals that can completely change the look of your interior vibe and help you to create the home of your dreams. Swedish company Rebel Walls have over 12 million images in their image bank – and if that’s not enough choice you can send in your own image to have it made into your own unique wall mural. Phew, that would take some looking through! Needless to say, I haven’t been through that lot, but I have picked out a few that inspire me and make me itch to redecorate a room.
‘Into the Wild’ is a trend we can all take bits from to give our homes a touch of exuberant nature. Animals in our interiors, whether they be our own home grown variety such as badgers or the more exotic zebra’s, are all the rage this season for bringing quirkiness to your décor and a smile to your face. For us here at MiaFleur, this trend is the perfect combination of wild pattern and colour that we love, so we’re sharing our tips and inspiration with you today and we’d love to know what you think. Are you ready to join the wild side?
The latest edition of Modern Gardens has hit the shelves and my garden is featured! It was a very exciting day when the photographer Lesley Anne came to photograph the garden, preceded by a mad day of tidying, dead heading and hedge trimming by me and my son Henry. I had been away for a week, and as any gardener will know a lot goes on in the garden in a week, so it was a bit of a mad dash to get it back shipshape and fit for viewing. Amelia has taken a few shots for me of my favourite bits of the garden, so I hope you enjoy the tour!
This trend is so fabulously lush that we can’t resist it here at MiaFleur. You may remember Hollie talking about the tropical interiors trend at the start of the year but, as with all trends, they evolve through time, so now we have the rainforest vibe. We’ve gone from Caribbean Island to Amazonian rainforest, which means layer upon layer to envelope you in paradise. What do you think, will you be tempted into the jungle?!
Wall décor has had a bit of a resurgence and, oooh there are so many delicious options out there! It needn’t be flat wall art either – after all there is more to life than a framed print, is there not? Think texture, think 3D, think colour, and the world opens up to reveal all sorts of possibilities.
I’ll showcase a few pieces here, but the possibilities are endless – all you need is a bit of imagination.
