au naturel

Scanning the internet for inspiration to report on sometimes gets me nowhere. Often, working in the interior/event design industry I'm thrust into various trends which seem to orbit around me trying to envelop me. Despite variety, trends, styles of design, which is essential and key to my occupation and something I passionately follow - I could quite simply live for eternity in a home completely decked out in Zara Home. It looks so comfortable, simple, attainable yet desirable and composed in a sort of eclectic fashion. Although it's an utterly commercial style, it make you feel individual and stylish - their designers must be geniuses!

I'd love to hear what your favourite high street interiors shop is? Do you share my love of the muddled, washed out palette of cream, white, mushroom and grey?

Origami dream

I came across creative genius Lo Bjurulf courtesy of Lobster and Swan, a blog I follow, this week. Bjurulf, a Swedish interiors stylist, takes a colour palette and really works it. I particularly like the Ikea shoots she's done through creative agency Agent Bauer.

I love this stunning palette of creams, whites, and biscuit tones - totally captivating and delicately dreamlike. It reminds me of the nude concept space in Selfridges this month, showcasing various homeware and dinnerware ranges on raw timber trestle tables and wooden palettes.

I have these textured off white vases..!
