I’ve realised that this bold and pretty Kantha blanket on the Cloth House website (130x190cm) ¬£250 would be the perfect way to loosen up our rather too ‘still’ English Green bedroom, which still hasn’t quite come to life since having to make lots of decorating decisions artificially fast this time last year. Think that now we’ve had a chance to live in the space for a bit there will be lots of little notions pushing their way through…

The next few weeks are going to be a challenge for me in terms of how I’m going to get the colours, patterns and decorating detail I’m desperate to live with past the grouped monoliths of partner with decorating schedule and creative ideas of his own, contractors who can’t understand why I wouldn’t want the largest possible bathroom tiles ‘They’re easier to rig up’, electricians who want to slap up big plastic exterior lights right onto about the only ‘feature’ on the front of the house, the porch etc… Hmmm.

…for the day job, and I keep coming back to this, sourced from google images. I’ll have to check the reference, but get a load of the colour palette…


Confetti System, as seen on the ace StyleBubble blog…


The Cloth House comes up trumps again with this set of deliciously rich cotton prints. Now all I need is the Spitalfields house I’d like to decorate with them…

I love this interior by Suzy Hoodless. The matte
colours, alongside those metallic surfaces are looking damned good.

Sorting through my fabric favourites, I came across these delights. Yes they’re bold, but look how happy they are together!!



What a treasure this shop Wayward is. I love anywhere that’s offering to sell me bundles of ‘traditional Dutch hand loom indigo dye wool’… Stuffed full of vintage bolts of fabric and trims. Buckets of aged beads too that you shovel into a paper bag like a quarter of boiled sweets. A must see on any day trip down to the coast at St Leonard’s.
