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.

MONOCHROME MOMENT #19

Good morning! A little late with this today but better late than never.  This week's Monochrome Moment comes courtesy of Mikkel Dahlstrøm, co-founder of Danish creative content company Another Studio.  His Instagram feed is a work of art - awash with inspiring lifestyle images all cohesively collated in muted tones.  This image particularly caught my eye, it is a lesson in how to style a coffee table: arty books, a simple floral display and a subtle metallic element to add a bit of sparkle.  Just perfect!
