Plates again! This time this dinnerware set is by Donna Hay – Modern Nostalgia. I think it would make a lovely everyday set. Its very dainty and looks even lovely’er displayed on a white dresser ~ hmm like this one

A pure white ‘Alberta’ dresser from Lene Bjerre.

The Sitting Room

The sitting room is one we haven’t finalised yet. We had a pair of vases in green ombre that we were basing the sitting room decor on and I purchased some beautiful ‘Pistachio’ mixed silk for the roman blinds. But when the fabric arrived the colour wasn’t what was shown and Mr S wasn’t keen. Then at Christmas I filled said vases with branches and decorated them as Kitten toys of course not Christmas Decorations and one of the vases got broken. So we are back to the drawing bored.
But I saw these american walnut bentwood shelves and I think they are simplistic enough to go with any colour scheme we choose as it will be neutral tones I’m sure.

Craft Room

The craft room has obviously been high on my Pinterest pins and I have exactly what I want to achieve in it all planned out, I’ve even purchased a few bits already.
I am designing this room based on my WIP Granny Stripe blanket.

White walls and bright rainbow colours.
There is lots of great inspiration on Pinterest for this and some great blogs.

Firstly is this amazing pompom rug made by Pip of Meet Me At Mikes for Australian Frankie Magazine . I so wish to get hold of a copy of the magazine and make my own.

I found these cute little felt hearts on Etsy.

And this is another talented blogger 613 Materika

How great would these boxes look in my new craft room – VERY!

I have a very similar craft desk to this which I intend to give a painted make over, I adore the turquoise of this one in a picture by Rachel Whiting on Eclectic Living Home’s Blog

I first saw these beautiful mini zen gardens on Pinterest and have tracked them to this little shop on Etsy Gardens of Wendiland

I would love these but unfortunately they aren’t shipped to the United Kingdom, so I will have to recreate my own.

Gardens of Wendiland also do these little ‘Japanese good luck charm Marimo pets’. These little balls of moss; Cladophora aegagropila’, live in the Akan Lake in Japan. (I know this as I read the site information – I’m on a detective mission on where in the UK I can get them or who will post to me)
They are just so aesthetically pleasing.

Finally I really like the use of colour co-ordinate books on shelves and an example of this and in fact I admire her whole office is A Bowl Full of Lemons .

20130306-225826.jpg

This is a popular Pinterest pin and you can see why such wonderful organisation and inspiration. A Bowl Full of Lemons has a great post on her blog following home organisation of her whole house, amongst other posts, which are all well worth a cup of tea and a read.

… Now Cladophora aegagropila where are you ~ here boy!
