3 Christmas stylings to inspire you

How to create a nice Christmas wall display without damaging your walls

Since you loved so much this article on how to create a gallery wall without drilling into your walls, I have put together three Christmas stylings to decorate your home without (again!) damaging or drilling into your walls. Christmas styling #1 For this one made in our home in France, I used Command Brand clear hooks (see below) which are great to hang paper balls, garlands or fairy lights. However, should you wish to hang a Christmas lights curtain like the one I’ve hanged in our lounge here, I suggest you use Command Brand clear medium hooks which will be stronger and more suitable to bear the weight of the lights. Either way, both are very easy to fix on the wall and providing your walls are healthy and you follow the instructions when removing them, these little hooks will not damage your walls.To hang my gold NOEL sign, I fixed one of Command Brand plastic hooks on each side of the wall, then I run a clear string through the hooks of the inflatable letters and …

How to add textures and warmth to your home

How to add textures to your home

I’ve always loved the minimalist, relaxing look that exudes from our resin floor in our London home. However, since I’ve painted this wall with Kalklitir paint before Summer, I have been drawn to more intimate, muted colours, wooden furniture and handmade objects and of course, stonewashed linen in the bedrooms. I suspect this unpainted plaster wall is not going to get painted anytime soon and that’s ok… I love it just the way it is, with its small imperfections and soothing atmosphere. It’s also the start of Autumn and personally, I feel more inclined to stay at home where it’s warm and cosy rather than hitting the town on high heels in the cold, don’t you!?There are different ways of adding textures and warmth to your home but one that doesn’t fail is adding a rug, even a small one like this wool berber rug I got from Next a while ago but never got around to photograph. You can see here how the lounge looked before the addition of this small rug (especially here!) … I should have …

How to style your dining table for Easter

How to style your dining table for Easter

I’ve never really decorated a table for Easter before but then I saw these eggs in a vase on Pinterest and it inspired me to make my own ‘pastel’ version with left-over paint I had and use my beautiful tableware designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion. It was really easy to do and turned out to be very pretty too so I’m really pleased with the whole look of our Easter table. I also put together a super easy family menu which you will have no problem replicating. STARTER: AVOCADO ON TOAST, POACHED EGG & ASPARAGUS WRAPPED IN PARMA HAM Since I’m on my 5th week of #Iquitsugar (refined sugars) and I’m foodie at heart, it’s important I treat myself to food that feels hearty and tasty and I absolutely loved this “entrée” which I served on Sophie Conran for Portmeirion bistro plates.A couple of tips for you…Cooking your asparagus with a spoon of baking soda will keep them green and the best way to make poached eggs is to add white vinegar to your boiling …

A cosy, natural corner

A cosy, natural corner

I’m so loving this beautiful, natural styling by Photographer & Stylist Line Kay who I have mentioned before here. The mix of textures and soothing off-white and cream hues with a few touch of vintage makes this the perfect spot to hang out on a gloomy day. Line’s recent natural styling for Hale Mercantile Co. is also pure eye-candy. Go here to read about 5 ways to use this gorgeous natural basket. GET THE LOOK:

Natural bedroom styling in France

A few weeks ago, I updated the styling of one of the bedrooms in this holidays home which you can rent via Airbnb. Bearing in mind that the house is for sale and I can’t give it too much of a strong identity so everyone visiting it, can project their own style, I have decided to leave the walls white and add small styling touches to create a happy vibe. This was an inexpensive styling job (only about 15 euros for the stretched canvas), a few tear sheets, my BE HAPPY print, some family photos and quotes found on Pinterest.
