Interior inspiration

November 14, 2014

I’ve been on an full-on interior hunt on Pinterest lately. I actually deleted my original Home is a Heartbeat board and started afresh, with images of things that I would realistically live with, rather than 300+ images of pretty things I’m not actually sure I would ever even consider.


I’m utterly torn and attracted to open wardrobes. On the one hand, I think they look GREAT! But on the other hand – would my clothes get very dusty? Would it look messy? I just don’t know. Looking at the above photos, it seems to work because a lot of the clothing is fairly monotone, whereas my wardrobe is definitely a whole lot of colour (even if I do inevitably end up in black), a fair amount of denim and some textured pieces.


Another ‘open’ obsession; bare bulbs. Trout and I both love these, and whenever we’re in bars or cafes etc. that have them, we always rate them. The photos below show a really simple way of fitting them in your home, which works for me. Also, black. Not sure I’d personally choose it, but I love these units!


Tiles! I think Sandra Juto might have something to do with this one. I love how detailed and unique they can be, and they remind me of travels to Berlin and hopeful dreams of one day making my way to Morocco. I’m not entirely sure where they could go? (I like to think in front of the front door, on the outside, but I’m not sure how realistic this dream will be.) It could be that they feature in a panel in the bathroom, or maybe just a set of coasters in the lounge.


I really really want an office. We both do a fair amount of work at home, and I would love a space that I can do all of it, surrounded by inspiration, and where I can shut the door at the end of the day and (hopefully) separate myself from it (to a certain extent).


There are so many things that I love, it’s so hard to pick which ones to settle on and which are simply beautiful images that won’t fit together to make a beautiful home. I really wouldn’t want every room to have a completely different style, and I’m a huge fan of simplicity; white space with colour and textured add through prints hung on the walls, beautiful knitted throws and cushions on the sofa and a luxurious rug on the floor. Any of these catch your eye? What are your dreams for interior renovation?

    Love the bare bulbs and the tiles especially!! I’d say I tend to go for simplicity with pops of colour… I’m currently wishing for a vintage style wardrobe painted in a bright blue/green, shabby chic I guess! And a glass lamp… I saw an awesome one in ikea the other day but they were sold out :(

      Hopefully they’ll come around again! I definitely need a new lamp – the one I had on my bedside ‘table’ (chair) broke about two years ago…

    I’m also a fan of the bare bulbs, I know what you mean when you see them styled in cafes. I have to admit my little desk space is a life saver, we got rid of one of our sofas so we could each have a desk and it works so well :-)

      I haven’t had a desk space since I had a studio at uni, so I can’t wait to have something like yours with an inspiration board!

    I love those pictures! Everything looks so clean and beautiful

      That’s what I love – clean walls punctuated with colour and texture.
