Sage & Claire

We all love our County Road Store from its trendy fashion to uber cool accessories to stylish little decoration pieces for our home. But did you know that quite recently Phoebe Bell (previously a stylist for Country Road) has left the fashion industry and opened up an online homeware store? And not even your average homeware store but handmade bohemian goodness.  

If you love Bohemian style as much as I do then this is the place to shop, i don't even need to write any more just see for yourself.

bohemian, nomadic, eclectic, artisanal, inspiring, handmade

Color of the Week - Purple

Purple is a very spiritual color I cant really picture having to much of it, it has very calming and soothing effect it cant be overused. Obviously there are different shades and tints of purple from deep rich violet to calming lavender. Purple is a very safe choice for the first time decorators it can suit many interiors and personalities, it's a favourite color of many people. To me, purple is royal and very mysterious color. If this is your favourite color it means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself - you are the person others come to for help - being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you.

Purple is also the most powerful wavelength of the rainbow – and it’s a color with a powerful history that has evolved over time.

Color of The Week - Turquoise

Turquoise is my favourite color so you cant blame for writing this blog post :) Ofcourse having a turquoise room is a little bit over the top but throwing in some nice turquoise elements into your décor will do the trick. This color is seemed to be favourable by many so I am sure you will enjoy the collection of interiors I have found for you from all over the net.

I find turquoise to be very therapeutic.  This is a color that recharges our spirits during times of mental stress and tiredness, alleviating feelings of loneliness. You only have to focus on the color turquoise, whether on a wall or clothing and you feel instant calm and gentle invigoration, ready to face the world again!
It is a great color to have around you, particularly in an emergency, as it helps with clear thinking and decision-making. It assists in the development of organizational and management skills. It influences rather than preaching and demanding.
Brace yourself its a huge collection and lots of turquoise!

Sissy+Marley Wallpapers

Sissy+Marley the New York Decorators just reliased their very own line of wallpapers specifically designed for kids bedrooms. The range is very cute and stylish, not too bright as the wallpapers you will normally find and with creative simple pattern. I think a lot of nurseries and kids rooms missing the beauty of simplicity and instead parents throwing lots of baby blues and barbie pinks and make everything as bright as possible, in my opinion its much nicer and calming for a child to tone down the room a little bit but still keep it fun and playful.
Anyway check out the beautiful range!

Go Creative This Christmas!

Why have another year of old fashioned Christmas when you can let your imagination ran wild and make this Christmas a holiday to remember. If the current trends that you can find HERE didn't impress you enough and you still in search of that extra something to impress or shock (in a good way) your guests then look no further! I found a perfect collection of inspirations for you that will satisfy your craving for a Christmas adventure!
Your Christmas tree doesn't have to be real...or plastic. Or green...or even a tree...And your theme doesn't have to be all green and red or even Christmassy in fact!

This post is all about your imagination and creativity. After all it is good to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. Give your space some personality even if it's gothic. Challenge the tradition by adding a specific theme. Go crazy I say!

Lea Michelle's Manhattan House

Country and comfort that is exactly what Lea's home is all about. It is an absolutely stunning bangalow in Western Hollywood filled with rustic wooden furniture, earthy and natural tones, moderate splash of colour, eclectic decorative pieces and her Barbara Streisand collection. The place is warm with a bit old fashion French country feel to it, looking at this home makes you feel like you are somewhere far away in the quite peaceful place somewhere in the country side, definitely a relaxing way of living.

Dream Boards, Mood Boards, Inspirational Boards and Other Pretty Boards

I wrote about Dream Boards on my Health Blog, you can read all about it HERE.
In fact Dream Boards can look pretty stylish if done creatively. Use hard board and magazine cut outs for yours, not only you can use the pictures of your dreams but also words and sentences. Cant find what you want? Print it off the net! Or create an online one and save it to your phone and computer. It is the best way to visualise goals and put together all your future achievements its easier to keep track of them this way.
You can have them all on my board or separate them by different category of goals/dreams and have them in different rooms. For example love and relationship board in the bedroom, money and career one in the home office.

You can also have mood boards for upcoming events and parties or even fashion moodboard if you are still in search of your own slyle. Actually it is a great idea! Put all the pictures of clothes and fashion shoots that you are absolutely inlove with that will definitely help you next time you are thinking of updating your wardrobe!

Or having an Inspirational Board with your favourite motivational quotes and anything that keeps you driven! Even just putting these quotes in a simple frame will do the trick ( I will have a YouTube video on that soon).

Now check out the way of styling your pretty boards and adding them to your creative space.

Christmas Decor Trends - 2013

Décor trend for this Christmas is full of gorgeous turquoise, greens, blues, browns, orange, saffron yellows, olds and metallic. Just a small step away from the traditional palette and you can create an absolute work of art and a cold winterie feel to your holiday room.
Christmas is a big deal to most of us and majority will always follow the tradional color palette and decorations. Why not do something different this year I am absolutely inlove with the picture I have on the left. How gorgeous is the white tree and blue/turquoise ornaments and decorations?! So very refreshing and still festive enough for a Christmas gathering!

 So the current Christmas Décor Trends include:

No gnomes and elfs this year! It is all about the owl ornaments and patterns.
Owls on Christmas tree decorations, candles, pillows or simply as figurines will do the trick. Add some pinecones to it and anything that would represent forest.

Thanksgiving decorations

Thanksgiving Day  is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

American Thanksgiving traditions revolve around a huge and lavish meal, usually with Turkey as the centrepiece. As tradition has it in most families, a special prayer of thanks precedes the meal. In many homes, family members will each mention something they are very thankful for.

Apart from food, the biggest Thanksgiving traditions are football and parades. In an­cient harvest festivals, people usually celebrated with games and sports, so you could argue the football tradition has very deep roots. Some people choose to express their gratitude by giving back to the community. Volunteer activities, such as helping out at a soup kitchen or at a shelter, are popular ways to spend Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving is all about warm autumn colours, hot drinks, delicious warm food, family gatherings and autumn harvest that you can also use to decorate your whole house with for this special occasion. Hope my selection will inspire you.
