colour therapy

Sometimes the thought of having my own home to decorate overwhelmes me because I love so many different styles: coastal, shabby chic, white minimalist and country, to name just a few. But when I was glancing through the Elle Decor website, it reminded me of just how much I love rooms that are simply a riot of colours… especially jewel tones. Here are a selection of living areas that made me take a mental note for future home ideas (statement rugs, a rainbow of scatter cushions and bright flowers in clear vases to add the finishing touch), and some high street buys that will ensure the sun always shines inside regardless of the weather outside. Our first taste of summer was fleeting to say the least… I should never have got my toes out, I jinxed it!

    Oh El, I am about to go through the exact same thing and decorate my own first home; I love so many different styles and can see so much possibility in the flat I simply do not know where to start!

    (so thanks for confusing me even more!!)

    Hi there
    I think the trick when you move into your first new home is to take your time and get a feel for the place first and always buy one that has a South facing garden !

    Ooh love the colourful images, El! It’s great you know what you’re constantly drawn to, you know your style!

    Love the smile on the John Lewis Bump Chair 🙂

    Meera xx
