I have an unhealthy obsession with browsing Pinterest and saving images of all the beautiful homes on there, but I definitely get house envy constantly. I love so many different styles and I think that makes it hard when it comes to styling my own home, and why I change things up so much as I don't have one favourite style - I have loads! It gets difficult trying to incorporate them all as they obviously don't always work together. I thought that I would share a bit of interior inspiration and some of my favourite trends lately...
I haven't got any parquet flooring in my house but it's literally everywhere I look when I log into instagram or pinterest. But I can see why as it's absolutely gorgeous. There's a difference between herringbone and parquet but both are equally beautiful in their zig zag shape. I hope to get some installed eventually as I think it would look so good in my lounge and I want a lighter flooring in there anyway. It seems to look good in any rooms too, whether it be bedrooms, living rooms, hallways or kitchens!
The rattan trend is real isn't it?! Rattan everything everywhere on insta. I bought a rattan rocking chair and I love it, I don't think I'd have a full room full of it though, I just like the touches. I really want some rattan light shades as I think they're stunning. Rattan goes perfectly with pampas grass too! It adds such a lovely, warm touch to a home and I feel like it's quite summer too. It reminds me of furniture when you're vacaying somewhere hot.
I'm addicted to farrow and ball's downpipe lately, for someone who likes light and bright photos I just can't seem to stop painting walls dark in my house?! I started by painting my feature wall in the kitchen in downpipe and I love how it turned out. I was going to go for a light neutral in the hallway but once I'd finished it I just didn't love it so I decided to do that in downpipe too! Maybe I just have an obsession with downpipe?! I can see why everyone loves it so much, it's the perfect dark shade.
I've been trying to incorporate a bit more colour (and not just dark ones!) into my house lately, and I love the idea of colour blocking. I love it because it enables you to add a pop of colour without going overboard and I'm much more of a neutrals person so I don't want to offset the balance. I'm thinking of doing a colour block in Reubens room as his walls are all white and it could do with a lick of paint. I haven't decided what colour to go for yet though but I reckon it'll look fab.
