Finding seasonal home and living style inspiration

I don’t know about you but I love looking for home ware and interiors style inspiration, whether it’s from blogs, Instagram, Pinterest or shops, I’m always on the look out for products and style trends that suit our home. In recently moving to a completely new home that’s a blank canvas of white walls, grey carpet and oak doors we have the opportunity to really make this place our own. 

Before we even moved in I had been busy putting together ideas for each of the rooms. Colour palate wise I knew I wanted muted tones to run through the whole house, greys, dusky pinks, a splash of yellow, and of course a lot of white.

Here’s a few little sneak peeks..


Within the girls rooms my older daughter has gone for monochrome with a turquoise accent and my younger daughter is all about yellow and the rainbow – no muted tones for her! The only thing I’ve insisted on is that we keep the walls white so if they change their minds as they grow we aren’t constantly changing wallpaper and repainting. We can’t paint the walls of our new build for a while yet anyway so that certainly helps!

Like I said, I’m always on the look out for inspiration and this home style guide by Nectar is bursting full of ideas and inspiration for the seasons, to have a look and download, click here.

I love that the guide has two sections, Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter and it takes you through each room for both seasons. I must admit like to refresh my spaces during the seasons so Spring/Summer will differ from Autumn/Winter accessories wise. Obviously I don’t redecorate every few months, that way madness lies, but I like to change things up a little to reflect the season or to give it a style update.

I particularly love the focus on muted tones and natural materials, and it features the cactus, and you all know how much I love a cactus (or three!).

When I watched The Great Interior Design Challenge one of the designers had a thing for the wood material,OSB and he managed to use it in most of his designs. I spotted the use of OSB as a headboard in Nectar’s style guide.

It’s such a creative way to change up a space, and a cheap one too! I love the idea of incorporating it into my new workspace behind the desk that will run along the back wall of the room.

I love that white marble worktops feature in the winter kitchen, we’re ahead of that one..

    Thanks Jess! I must admit they sold the house to me as soon as I walked in the kitchen and saw them! x

    Love it! This is totally my style too. I can’t wait for a full home tour! Regarding seasonal styling, other than adding some decorative items during Christmas and Easter I don’t really change it with each season. Mind you, I do make loads of little changes all year round! lol

    I really must get a home tour done before the school holidays as there is no way it will stay tidy enough once my girls are home! x

    I shall definitely have a look. I really want to make something with OSB since the Design Challenge, I love that Industrial look.

    I am so excited to see more of your home Morgana, you know I love your style and the brightness makes my heart sing.

    Can’t wait for more glimpses xx

    The industrial look has definitely been my favourite for this year. The designer was so clever with his use of OSB wasn’t he? I never would have thought of using it in the home. x

    I’m loving the splashes of colour; it’s great to be able to start with a blank canvas and change things up as you go. Love the bedside cabinet as well!

    Thanks Jess. I’m really enjoying having a space that we can really make our own without lots of renovation work. The bedside cabinets are fab aren’t they? I’m so proud of that find! x

    It’s so handy to have a blank canvas isn’t it? We still haven’t finalised colours for our walls more than 3 years after moving in so the white will be here for a good while longer X #HomeEtc

    morgana - July 4, 2017 reply

    I think we’ll be just the same! I don’t mind though, I’m loving the white x

  • Fionnuala - July 4, 2017 reply

    Your home looks fab. The yellow armchair really adds character. #homeetc

    Love that yellow chair! I suspect our house does change with the seasons very slightly but most accessories – the warm snuggly throws are replaced for lighter ones and there’s more flowers about, and candles – more of those in the winter I think. In the summer there’s citronella ones outside! Having a neutral base to work from though is a good plan #homeetc
