I haven’t done a home with list in absolutely ages. Being an avid interior design fan I thought it was high time I shared a little home inspiration with you. Today I have wish lists for three different rooms, all with a completely different theme and feel. There’s a little inspiration here for all tastes and I love all the beautiful items I’ve included.
Shabby Chic Bedroom: I love using light pastel colours in my bedroom as well as pretty floral prints. Set against painted white furniture the colours are both restful and cheerful. I’ve chosen the colours I used in my old bedroom before we moved up to the loft. Pink and blue look so pretty together and if you’re creating a shabby chic look these are really great colours to use. I love mixing up textures and prints within my colour scheme for that perfect vintage inspired mix and match look.

Green and White Vintage Kitchen: My own kitchen has very similar colours to the bedroom stuff I included above, however when it comes to fashion I’m totally addicted to gingham and would love to include it a little more in my home. Red gingham is an obvious choice for a kitchen, but since green is my favourite colour I thought it would be lovely for a fresh green and white kitchen look. I’ve complimented the green curtains and chair cover with simple white accessories or if you’re going for a more mid-century look the plates with their abstract leaf design might be more your cup of tea.

Opulent Living Room: I’ve gone for something completely different in the living room. At nearly all the press days I’ve been to recently, metallic and copper tones have been everywhere. This autumn and winter the key home look will feature earth tones, velvet and fur and brass and copper accessories. I’ve included a photo from the Laura Ashley AW15 press day and I’ve been really inspired by the rich cosy look, which I’ve tried to recreate in my wishlist. With this look you can go for a more classic simple feel or add industrial elements to make the look a little more retro.
