I'm a firm believer in being inspired by the everyday. I think if you look hard enough, you can pretty much use anything in your everyday life (even the seemingly mundane) to inspire an interior design scheme.It could be a tree you pass on the way to work, a piece of jewellery you wear all the time, an old bowl you have at home, or in my case - random moments I see when I'm out running. And sometimes you're not sure why these moments appeal to you, or why they move you, but they do.
The fruity homewares and stationery craze refuses to go away - which is probably a good thing considering I adore the tropical colour story this aesthetic brings to a space. Although I did declare a short while ago that ceramic pineapples are officially over, I never threw all fruits under the bus - and I think they're divine in many respects.
There’s simply no denying the fact that I’m a bit obsessed with colour. Yes, I understand and have even posted about the fact that beige can be beautiful - and I fully appreciate the swoon-worthy qualities that a Scandi scheme possesses. But for me, dear Creatives, it’s all about a high-intensity hues. You can see why I was delighted to feast my eyes on these Terracotta Treasures then (or what some might call ceramic pineapples!).

It was, in fact, six months ago, and boy has she been a busy gal between then and now! The creative mastermind has gone from producing geometric stationery to launching a full-blown, breathtaking range of cushions and phone covers. They're all stamped with her signature style, of course, and I for one am going a bit gaga over them. Alert the authorities: I am about to swoon!
