Kerrisdale Design Inc

On Pininterest yesterday I found a gorgeous Console Table Set Up. Frustratingly I got a dead end when I tried to click through for more info. Sad face. Luckily after a bit of googly detective work I found the interior design company behind the yumminess!

Kerrisdale Design started out as an online store specialising in vintage furniture and fine art but has now expanded into a consulting service. I love the fresh feel of her work. The portfolio speaks for itself...

how gorgeous is that bench?

Our Weekend in Pictures

We made the most of the unseasonal weather this weekend and here's what we got up to...

Friday Night = scooters, park and a long walk.

Saturday = a drive to Bath, my first time to this truly beautiful city. Can't wait to return. We went on two open top bus tours (one in the city and one in the hills) and had lunch outside in a lovely italian. Perfect.

Sunday = A day by the river, jumped on a river cruiser and watch the crowds soaking up the sun. Bliss.

Hope you had a lovely weekend! x

Stripes

I'm a bit stripe obsessed at the moment. I really need a striped wall in my life... or a massive striped rug... or curtains with a really thick stripe... the bolder the better I'm loving it!

I think it is the fact that it is a bold pattern but still classic and neutral, it can literally go with any style, it grounds bright colours, warms up whites and balances feminine touches. I'm gushing now.. I think it's love x

Hope you had a good good Monday too x

Happy Friday xx

I've had flu all week blurgh! So annoying when you have loads of fun things you want to get on with but by the time you do the BORING things you HAVE to do you have no energy left!

I'm hoping to charge the batts this weekend and 'get with it' next week!

Here's a sneak peek at something i did manage to get round to this afternoon... bright you say? oh yes...


Hope you are more energised than me and have a fantastic weekend! X

Monday Brights - Zara Home Free Shipping This Week!

Zara Home are offering free shipping all week and as I have my eye on a few of their new pieces, I thought it rude not to have another look...

Here are my two faves from Zara Kids:

This gorgeous kiddies bench - how bloomin' chic!


And this fun rug, it's like abstract art! I think it would be gorgeous in a child's room with white walls

And as for the grown ups I've got a real thing for blue and white at the mo - so crisp and fresh and works gorgeously with pinks, greens, you name it...




I definitely have my eye on this tablecloth - very Black & Spiro



And this velvet cushion which comes in a pletherer of colours for only £9.99!


A gorgeous colour combo that reminds me summer will be here one day...


I love their napkins, I think they have the best range in the UK...






And finally this wee ashtray - no-one in our house smokes but they are so pretty and handy for all sorts of things...


That's my round up of favourites! Happy Monday and happy shopping xx

Vignettes

Now everything's unpacked I'm busy trying to arrange the little things that make a house a home. Here is are some favourite vignettes I have been collecting for prettifying inspiration...

As ever black, gold and pink is always a winner in my book..

This tablescape makes me envious...

I adore the eiffel tower here...


A collection of pretty stacked books is a vital part of any vignette...

Loving the hotel chic of this little ensemble...

Pretty and fresh,  the coral fan and amethyst just adds to the layering of textures...

Collecting perfumes on your dressing table with a pretty tray adds instant boutique chic...
