Heart Home Mag Sneak Peek: Bright Decor

I'm super excited to be sharing this sneak peek of Heart Home magazine's Winter issue ahead of the full launch tomorrow. Isn't this shoot a bright delight?! I'm in love with the sophisticated take on a multi-hued palette, which has been grounded by a chic grey base palette. The inspiring scheme has been expertly pulled together resulting in a balance between the three key elements - colour, pattern and texture. The mix of brights are tempered by sleek grey tones; the graphic patterns add visual interest and break up the individual hues; and texture is introduced through cable knit throws. Whilst yesterday's post on a multi-colour bedroom scheme felt ideal for the summer months, I think this is the perfect take on a similar palette for winter. What do you think, friends? Be sure to check out the full Winter issue of Heart Home magazine when it launches tomorrow.

Colour Palette: Multi-Coloured Bedroom

It can be a lot of fun to embrace a rainbow of colours when decorating and the results can be stunning. While the rules that apply to creating a complementary scheme go out the window, it's still important to consider which of your chosen hues you apply to certain parts of the scheme. To create a final look that looks stylish and considered it's best to pick one hue that you will introduce throughout all the elements of the scheme. So, taking this bedroom as an example, we can see how turquoise has been introduced in the artwork, the bedding and on the side table. This gentle consistency brings visual cohesion between all the elements of the room, meaning the look comes together as one, rather than looking like a jumble sale of different colours. Now, could we please discuss how fun that turquoise cage lamp is? I love it!

Happy Weekend: Off To The Christmas Tree Farm!

Yay, the first weekend of advent has finally arrived, and so I'm off to search out my tree. I'm getting up early to quickly brew a fresh coffee and rustle up a bite to eat before jumping in the car and heading to the Christmas Tree farm. On arrival, I'll be walking up and down the rows of trees, feeling the variety of branches, sniffing the needles and spinning to check for that all important symmetrical shape! With temperatures below freezing this weekend, the weather is set to be ideal for cracking on the Christmas tunes (yes, Mr. Buble, I'm looking at you!), pulling all the decorations out from hibernation for their month in the spotlight and generally having a jolly old time. Anyone else headed out on the Big Tree Hunt this weekend? If not, what are your plans? I hope you have a lovely few days, friends!
