3 Looks to Create an Inviting Dining Area in Your Home

Now that our resin floor has been laid in our lounge and kitchen (yeah!!!), it’s time for me to shop for a new dining table since I sold our radius table from Habitat before we started the renovations.Here are three looks I love with a preference for the first two, which one is your favourite? GET THE LOOK >>  1. Dining table | 2. Desk lamp | 3. upholstered chair | 4. pink sofa | 5. floorboards I’m so stealing the idea of the moodboard against the wall and this pink sofa from is to die for!

THE GREY SWEATSHIRT | OUTFIT PERFECTION

I say here that I had too many grey jumpers which I need to get rid of but this year, I also bought quite a lot of grey sweatshirts and I started doing the same for Mila for two reasons…

A soothing bedroom in hues of greys & blues…

I wish you all a very nice, relaxing weekend and leave you with the bedroom of my friend Gabrielle (see the house tour here) which was featured…

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

Thanks to all of you and your votes, I’ll go to the Amara Interior Blog Awards on 5th November so I’ve started looking for something to wear… I’m not much of an evening dress kind of girl. I much prefer wearing a pair of black, feminine trousers with a pair of high heels (preferably one from L.K. Bennett) or a sexy jumpsuit… JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

West Elm Blogger Styling Challenge

Last Saturday, Carole from Mademoiselle Poirot  and I, took part in a fun Blogger Styling Challenge in West Elm. The styling with the most likes will win the challenge so I would be HU-GE-LY grateful if you could head to West Elm’s Instagram account and vote for us here.  You only need to like the image to cast your vote by Sunday this week. The event was to celebrate the Beta launch of At{mine}, an interiors community site still in development but you can sign in here and It was hosted by Igor and Judith, Founders of Urban Jungle Bloggers, who inspired me to start this Urban Jungle board on Pinterest. Styling is one of the favourite parts of my job but styling when you can use anything in the West Elm shop to style our corner, was like being a kid in a candy shop and they have gorgeous things! The sofa we used for our styling is the James Harrison settee (£899) and the yellow throw is the Nomad bedspread. It’s currently in the sale and I’m hoping they will have a few left by the …

The best winter coats at 30% off

I got my new coat from this last post (and sadly not with 30% off) but while doing my research, I saw some nice ones at Mango. As they are now offering 30% OFF until 22nd October on their coats and sweatshirts, I thought I would share the ones I liked before they sell out. Even if the weather is not cold yet, it’s always a good idea to get your Winter coat early in the season because by the time, you really need that new, warm coat to face up the cold weather, all the good ones will be gone!My top 3 favourites include this faux shearling lined coat worn by Daria (photo 2), this belted wool blend coat (photo 3) which is very classy and the straight cut bouclé coat (photo 4). You can see my whole selection below by clicking on the arrow left of right and once you click on the image, it will take you direct to the product page. I also chose a few sweatshirts that would be perfect for last week …
