I thought I would start off with my first post about all the things that I love in my own home. Just so you could understand my own domestic aesthetic. Personally I’m not sure how I would describe it. Eclectic, maybe. Vintage, abit. Practical, definitely! I’ll let you judge!
Starting with my bedroom. I’ve always had a love of red and white. Think it’s because the contrast is quite stark and has a Scandinavian aesthetic to it. Hence the curtains and duvet being from ikea. The blanket was a gift. It’s made from British wool, manufactured up in leeds and I absolutely love it. It’s white with red hearts as you can see below and has red with white hearts on the reverse. Bronte do absolutely beautiful homeware items. Definitely check them out. The lamp is from M&S and is a really affordable alternative to the iconic arco floor lamp. Plus it’s smaller so is perfect for a bedroom! The print is one of my sisters of a bird sitting on a coconut. Abit of a strange juxtaposition but I think that’s why I like it. And last but not least some cushions that I designed as part of my degree project. They are watercolour and pen drawings of some colourful Chinese scenes. I also have the originals framed in the front room.
