Interiors and Lifestyle Blog:For the eclectic and ever so slightly eccentric…
Urban Jungle Bloggers is a monthly series hosted by Igor and Judith to encourage us all to bring a little more green into our lives. Each month they, plus many bloggers worldwide, share ideas to create an urban jungle through styling ideas, DIYs and green tips & tricks and this month the theme is ‘1 plant – 3 stylings’.
I’ve been nurturing this Aeonium Balsamiferum for several years now and despite my haphazard neglect it’s still thriving, and quite my favourite house plant, so had to be the star of this show.
I love Amtico flooring – and no, I’m not being paid to say that! I’ve always loved the finish, and the designs, and the way you can make patterns with the pieces to make a design unique to you and your home. When I moved into my previous house 25 years ago I knew instantly that Amtico would do justice to the beautiful big square hall. I also hoped that it would be able to cope with five children rampaging through it on a daily basis. And it did, and still it looks good. The stuff that floor had to put up with – the kids have fond memories of whizzing around the central hall table on skateboards chasing each other and other such fun pursuits. Well I didn’t find it fun then but in retrospect I suppose it was, certainly for them!
I shouldn’t really be doing this, in fact it goes against everything we probably should be saying, but I just felt it was time to come clean…
As you will all no doubt know, we’re a small, family run business. However, shopping with us doesn’t come without its issues and I thought in the interest of being honest, I’d pen some thoughts on why you might NOT want to buy from a small company.
We have a new trend category on MiaFleur that we are really excited about – New Boho. What’s ‘New Boho’ you might ask? Well it’s Bohemian but more refined and less cluttered, but with lots of vitality and warmth and it’s easier to add elements of it to your own style. Think emerald green – lots of it in soft velvets and lush house plants with splashes of colour and pattern.

Eleven homes from around the world are showcased with ideas on how to bring elements of the look to your own interior, even if you actually live in a semi in the Midlands but have dreams of a Tuscan retreat, or aspire to urban loft living, there is always a way to bring that dream into your own home by capturing the essential something that speaks to you. The photos are inspiration enough but the text helps to pull together the essence for you to recreate. I’m not sure what is says about me but the two pages I’ve chosen to photograph come from the Hollywood Chic chapter!
We like to get our money’s worth from accessories at MiaFleur so we always try to think up different uses for our products and inspire you to think outside the box. With that aim in mind we have had a play about with our pentagon brass terrariums and not only styled them in 3 different ways but with 3 different uses.
I have some lovely little Moroccan tea glasses that I use to show off individual flower heads but they can get a bit lost being so small but by popping one into a brass terrarium they suddenly take centre stage and it really shows off the blooms.
