Trend : Nautical Interiors

Nautical interiors is definitely not a new trend, but it is a timeless trend. You will always find people decorating their homes with a nautical theme and it really doesn’t date. Living right on the coast here in Devon, I am surrounded by seaside themed…well …everything really. So it is no surprise that as summer approaches and outdoor living becomes more of a possibility, I always get drawn to nautical interiors. There is just something so classy about them, don’t you think? Is it the blue and white colour scheme maybe? I’m not sure, but what I do know is that nautical interiors never go out of favour with me. So today I’ve picked out a selection of products that can be used to create a classical nautical inspired room.

My Bedroom Inspiration Moodboard

Bedroom Inspiration Moodboard Black White & Yellow

As you all know, we moved into our flat last October and we have been a bit too busy getting to grips with being new parents to really get stuck into the decorating. Every room in the flat needs a total overhaul to take it from being a bland, characterless magnolia box to being something that we feel reflects our style and our personality as a little family. We decorated the nursery and the livingroom before Matylda arrived and until recently that is all we had got round to. But a couple of weekends ago we tackled the hallway (I’ll do a separate post about that in the coming weeks) and now I have a massive smile on my face every time I walk through the front door. This is such a refreshing change as I previously wanted to sob when I saw the magnolia walls and the red carpet. Next on our list of rooms to tackle is our bedroom and I can’t wait to get stuck in. I’ve known how I was going to decorate for months already and I had great fun making my bedroom inspiration moodboard. Read More…

Odyssey: AW13 Home Trend from John Lewis

Odyssey AW13 Home Trend from John Lewis

This bank holiday weekend I stumbled upon the new AW13 Home Trend from John Lewis and I have to say I’m really rather taken with it. Odyssey takes its cue from complex structures that can be found in nature and I really love all the geometric influences that can be seen in this collection. I’m also a big fan of the soft colour palette that infuses this range and I can seeing it working well in most rooms of the home. I’ll be adding quite a few of these items to my wish list. How about you?
