Nice things

I have been rather absent from my blog. I have been neglecting it and I promise to try harder. So here are  some new ad slightly different pictures than usual, a collection of pretty things that have caught my attention. I shall be back in the week with some more beautiful interiors.

Hibernate pt. 2

The ultimate in bohemian/ Hippie interior design

Handmade wooden house
The perfect tree house interior

I have been thinking more about where I would like to awake from my hibernation. I have dwindled it down to any of the above!

So where would you like to wake up after hibernating?

I think I must have been a bear or a hedgehog in a past life.

 The urge to Hibernate is defiantly running high at present, especially as I get up, in the dark at 5.45am (yuk) to head off for a 7am start in the hospital.

Gone are the dreams of summery modern white crisp rooms with well organised book arrangements and ornaments. 

In with dreams of realistic, scruffy, homely, cosy rooms, with a bit of character and ill matching charity/thrift shop finds. In with curling up with a good book, in my chair, a blanket on my knee, and a nice big mug of home made soup and some crusty bread.

Never enough cushions

Marie claire maison

Wouldn't it be great to have a room full of cushions and bean bags instead of sofas?

Apothecary Cabinets

Living etc 

My new obsession is apothecary chests, it started when a friend of a friend opened a specialist tea shop and had a lovely vintage Chinese tea cabinet behind the counter with each drawer containing a different specialist tea.... Assam tea wins every time for me!

Chilling with Jimi

I some times think I was born in the wrong era. I was actually meant to marry Jimi Hendrix! I just love him, his voice, his music and wow that man knew how to dress!

So this post is dedicated to him. Opulent, bohemian, over the top, eclectic interiors. Heavy in texture pattern and embroidery. Perfect for Autumn.
