Interiors and Lifestyle Blog:For the eclectic and ever so slightly eccentric…
Tiles are a practical solution in a home that many people tend to view as merely a bland backdrop to the overall scheme in a room because they are expensive to purchase and expensive to put up (or time consuming if you are a DIY’er), so they often get relegated to the boring spectrum in the hope they can remain there, unobtrusively, for many years! But oh, you are missing a trick, in terms of the drama they can bring to your décor tiles are unequalled, and to prove it we’re showcasing ‘7 Times tiles were totally terrific’ to get your creative juices flowing.
Well, that’s a wrap, folks! Another Christmas and another year. I can’t believe little ol’ MiaFleur is already 4 years old!
It’s been an incredible year for us at MiaFleur HQ, the highlight of which was winning a Midlands Family Business Award for ‘Best Use of Digital’. But of course, none of it would be possible without you, our lovely, loyal customers and followers. So we want to thank you all for your support, it really does mean the world to us. I heard a quote recently which said, “Every time you buy from a small business, an actual person does a happy dance.” And that is most definitely true for us, so thank you!
Today, I am very excited to say that we’ve got a guest post for you by the very lovely and very talented, Melanie from Melanie Lissack Interiors. In the run up to Christmas we knew we’d be very busy, so we thought we’d enlist her help and asked Melanie to come up with a gorgeous craft post that our readers would love. And what a gorgeous post it is indeed! Melanie came up with a seriously stunning and colorful indoor pompom wreath and has provided step by step instructions for you to make this at home. So, take it away, Melanie…
If you would rather have a more colourful Christmas than a traditional one, then this bright honeycomb pompom indoor wreath might just be for you! I have a traditional door wreath on the exterior of my front door made with berries and holly, but DIY’d this pompom wreath for the inside of the door ready for Xmas and New Year parties!
I really don’t like beige. I have no qualms in saying that and it certainly wouldn’t take long hovering on our blog or shop to figure that out.
You may have noticed that minimalism isn’t really our thing either. Perhaps our ‘Because life’s too short to be minimalist’ tagline gave it away? For me, minimalism is cold and actually, I find it a little depressing. But to some, they love the uncluttered, clean lines and sleek style.
But the thing is, I’m not even sorry to all those that love a bit of beige, because do you know what? It really doesn’t matter what I think, what your next door neighbour thinks or what, heaven forbid, your mother thinks (more on that here). It’s YOUR home. Do whatever the hell you want with it, whatever makes YOU happy. I love colour, quirk, frivolity, and a bit of just plain old fashioned eccentricity. I have to have objects around me which evoke happy memories; sentimental items which have been passed down through generations, or even just a painting that reminds of a fabulous holiday. But that’s what makes ME smile – what makes YOU smile?
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.
