I now have a NEW Online Interiors Store…. check it out!

Any of you that followed my last post on here (sorry it’s been a while again) will have seen my radio silence here has been due to a lot of hard work and many hours to launch a new concept for an online store.

Anyway, that day has finally come. On Tuesday 9th June, I launched Collectie.

I wont tell you all about it here, as it would make much more sense for you to take a look yourselves. View website here

Each of the three personally curated collections are limited edition of no more than 12 of each collection and include individual antique and vintage pieces.

As part of the launch, I am GIVING AWAY, yes GIVING AWAY one of the Natural Retreat Collections with a beautiful copper or silver tray, three artisanal recycled wood geometric candle holders, 6 white dinner candles, a French antique bottle (used as vase) and artificial (though looks remarkably real) white scabious flower.

For a chance to win, just head on over to any of Collecties social media accounts:

facebook.com/collectiehome, twitter.com/collectiehome, pinterest.com/collectiehome, instagram.com/collectiehome

And look for the giveaway image of Natural Retreat, then follow and share, simple as that. The competition ends this Saturday 13th June!

Good luck, and I look forward to seeing you over at Collectie.

Pattern Love

Dots, stripes, chevrons, geometric, nature inspired… it’s hard to keep up with trending fashions, never mind figure out how to introduce such busy or dominating patterns into your home.

If, like me, you sit and drool over wonderful colours and patterns in magazines, books and my fave Pinterest, then surely at some point you too must have thought about how to introduce some of these wonderful shapes and colours into your house.

To mix and match or to keep to a theme? Personally, I like to mix and match a bit, but don’t go crazy- either mix patterns of a similar type or different patterns in similar colours. Use your eye, bring things into your home to try and see what works. PS… keep it simple elsewhere, a white or neutral coloured room with similar coloured bedding or sofas can take a splash of ‘wow pattern‘ in a rug/ throw or cushion. Dont use more than 2 colours (not including your neutral white/ grey/ cream background), you can use several different shades of them though.

Here’s a little taste of some pattern loves I have gathered from my own home (and a few rugs courtesy of my flatmates recent spend at Urban Outfitters).
