I put the call out on Instagram last week and asked you what your biggest bug bear was when it came to decorating. One of the issues raised was that of white paint. Specifically, what if you're not a fan of the sometimes stark nature of this colour? And what other options can you splash your walls with? Well, this post should sort you out then; three alternatives to painting your walls white!

I'll tell you something for nothing; lighting is the easiest way to add mood to a room short of having some Barry White within reach. In today's post I'm showcasing ten of my fave pendant lights and lamps; some are classic, some are colourful, and all - without a doubt - have definite wow factor.

Abigail Ahern's Decorating with StyleAlert the presses, Creatives; I have been converted! Once a lover of all things light and bright in interiors (you know, sunshine and lollipops, a place where it's always spring), this release from style maven Abigail Ahern has given me a wondrous appreciate of interiors with mood. The pictures within this release are somewhat dark, very alluring and quite unlike anything I've  laid eyes upon in an interiors book (and you know I have many).

The new issue of Inside Out - available now - proved it by including me as one of its Six Blogs to Bookmark. That is, of course, not the only phenomenal thing about this issue, but it certainly helped raise my excitement levels when I got home to rip open my subscription and flick to page 42 to see The Life Creative mentioned!
