Lust List : Stylish Planters

Hammered Copper Plant Pots from Audenza

Copper Planters from Audenza

Around about this time last year, I wrote a post about how I deal with the winter blues and one of the main ways I like to tackle the dark and dreary winter days is to bring more greenery into my home. I’ve already managed to smuggle 5 new plants into our living room since Christmas without Mr Design Sheppard noticing. I like to choose small plants that he won’t necessarily pick up on.

Plus I don’t feel quite as guilty if they perish from lack of light before spring arrives. I think I may have a few casualties that won’t see the summer. My little plant shelf doesn’t really get a great deal of light in the winter months so I may have to look at getting some more faux plants for that particular part of the living room. This winter though I have found my self obsessing over all the beautiful planters out there. It’s just so annoying that I have already run out of room at home. Our flat is quite small so I don’t have any spare floor space unfortunately, otherwise I’d be investing in all of these stylish planters.  Read More…

Interior Trends 2016 : Mixed Metals

Copper Interior Accessories from Mia Fleur

The trend for metallics in interiors was pretty hard to miss in 2015, but it was undeniable that copper stole the show. It took a while for it to filter down to the highstreet but once it had there was no stopping it. Towards the end of the year brass started to make a bid for the crown and it shows no signs of waning in popularity in 2016. Gold has slowly started to make noise once again and this timeless classic will be making its way into our homes this year. Whilst we have previously seen trends for individual metals, 2016 heralds the age of mixed metals in our interiors. Warm metals such as copper, brass and gold can all be used together in the same interiors scheme and may even be seen alongside cooler metals such as silver or platinum, adding another layer of interest and dimension to a room. When these trends first started to appear in interiors it wasn’t easy to find affordable pieces to incorporate into our own homes, after all not everybody has the budget for Tom Dixon. However, there are now plenty of great places to source your metallic accessories and one of my current favourites is online interiors boutique Mia Fleur. Stocking a fantastic range of eclectic furniture & quirky accessories for the home & garden, Mia Fleur is definitely one to watch. Here are a few of my favourite metallic products from Mia Fleur. Enjoy! Read More…

Superfront Bathroom Furniture

Superfront Bathroom

I’ve been thinking about renovating my own bathroom since we moved in two years ago. I frequently see wonderful furniture and sanitaryware that makes my lust list but my teeny weeny bathroom simply can’t accommodate. But I have to say I think the new Superfront bathroom furniture is so far my all time favourite. For those of you who are not familiar with Superfront, it is a Swedish company that designs and manufactures fronts, sides and tops that fit Ikea’s most common cabinets. It makes doors for Pax wardrobes, kitchen doors and drawer fronts for Metod and Faktum kitchens, and doors for Bestå sideboards and cabinets. The fronts come with or without patterns in a number of carefully chosen colours. Superfront also supplies accessories such as handles and legs made from materials such as brass, copper, marble, birch and leather which give the finished items a really classy, not to mention expensive look.  Read More…
