Trending …

Nordic Style 

one of my all time faves

because it focuses on simplicity

with the use of natural elements …

Wood,  Wool,  Leather and Stone.

Clean Lines provide a sophisticated edge.

Industrial Chic …

Recognising the Romance in the Rough …

it requires a girlie injection

if there’s brick …

it will often be painted white

Accents of pretty colours & accessories

add a homely touch.

Industrial Chic…

Streamlined architecture 

adds a sophisticated edge

White furniture,

 curved lighting and chairs

provide the feminine touch.

Recognising the Romance

in  the raw, rough, reclaimed & worn …

 girlie accents …

together with modern clean lines …

Industrial Chic!

swedish colour palette … neutral

xx

Whenever I see an interior that ‘speaks’ to me

I like to ask myself …

what is it about the room that I love ?

This helps me to identify

my own personal style.

Here I love how the room is stylish but relaxed …

not too fussy or formal

and I really love it’s neutral colour palette …

the blue undertoned grey painted lining boards

with the accents of white and natural.

 It’s simplistic but girlie

and reflects swedish design

which has to be my all time favourite.

Here I especially love the soft pink in the girlie vest

against the neutral palette background.

Again this room oozes swedish style

with it’s blue grey raked ceiling,

contemporary reading lamp

and the natural elements of coziness

in the woollen cushions, throws and rugs.

XXXxx

  When trying to identify your personal style

it’s a good idea to recognise ….

not just the fact that a room appeals to you

but why you find it so appealing.

If you do this continually

 you will begin to see a theme …

a theme that represents

 your own personal style …

the style that’s right for you.

Autumn Fashion Shopping 2012

.

As soon as it gets to February

I start thinking about shopping

 for my autumn wardrobe …

 these are the things

 that have ‘spoken’ to me so far …

.

.

Two new merino wool tops which I can layer …

one a creamy neutral with a pink undertone

and the other a purple undertoned grey

.

.

I fell in love …

 with the texture and warmth of this vest,

 it’s neutral colour with it’s pink undertone

.

These boots with their vintage patina

spoke to me also

see how they’re a low ankle height?

That’s the new winter look …

they can be worn with straight jeans

or with skinny leg jeans tucked into them.

The boots are grey and have a green undertone.

.

..

I really wanted some new bracelets too

and I loved the natural look of these,

see the charcoal beads?…

they have a purple undertone.

The reason I bought two is so

I can wear them on both wrists!

….

..

Just like in Interior Design …

the Vintage vibe continues in fashion

this Autumn/Winter

 off-set by natural textures

so mix it up with natural elements …

  think …

 wood, wool, leather and suede,

but most of all have fun with fashion!

.

Tops …  Kookai

Vest … Country Road

Boots … glue

Bracelets … Sportsgirl
