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..
If you’re looking for some interior inspiration without doing the hardwork of trawling through Pinterest or other places then be sure to look up the design guide.
