MONOCHROME MOMENT #23

Hello! Welcome to the week, here we go with another Monochrome Moment!

Now, I realise this is not strictly monochrome due to the slightly pink tone on the wall (it's Valspar's Rose Crystal for those interested) and the addition of more ivy but I'm rather pleased with this shot of my bookshelves so I wanted to share it with you.

I really am going to have to stop buying any more decorative bits and bobs as the shelves are getting a bit busy now but it's fun to keep rearranging everything! I bought the succulents from Columbia Road flower market with the intention of using them as props on photoshoots but while I'm at home it seemed a shame to box them away with all the other stuff I use.  

As a result these shelves are rapidly becoming my new prop store!

MONOCHROME MOMENT #22

Well I can't believe we're in to July already! And you know what that means? Yep, Christmas.

The interiors world is full of Christmas events and previews at this time of year, I think it's going to be especially odd this time seeing as we're in the grip of this epic 'heatwave' (or summer, as it's more commonly known).  So, before the madness begins I'm making time to enjoy moments of calm by practicing meditation, mindfulness and peace of mind.  

In the mornings I love to sit quietly with a good cup of coffee and just contemplate the day ahead and although I have three or four favourite mugs already I couldn't resist adding this one, above, to the collection.  I've been suitably impressed by Matalan's home range, there are some lovely little accessories like this which are a great way to add interest quickly and for minimal outlay.  At just two squid each I could spell out my whole name without breaking the bank! 

I'll think about it.
