Are you a fan of white bedding? I first bought some a couple of years ago and now can't imagine going back to colour. There is something so serene and calming about white in the bedroom that creates a sanctuary to relax after the stress of a busy day. In this image, I love the juxtaposition of fresh, crisp linen against the reclaimed grey washed wood headboard and old window panes - perfection.

I have developed a real crush on linen recently. In a similar way to my love for enamelware, linen is beautiful, useful and long-lasting – basically all the elements you want from something that will become part of your home and passed through the generations. Maybe I sound like an old romantic but wouldn't you want to sink into these deliciously soft sheets and imagine you are eating breakfast in a lovely french chateau? We've got some great PR shots from The Linen Works here, but I think linen really does create the feel of rustic elegance that so many of us covet.
Of course, as with all the loveliest materials, it isn’t cheap. I adore the bedding from The Linen Works and Toast – two places I’d be stocking up from regularly if I had the budget – but luckily there’s a bargain source around too. H&M! I wasn't too keen on the baby blue and sugary pink, so I opted for white and am eagerly awaiting delivery of the double duvet set next week.

Good morning, how are you? I hope you had a fun-filled weekend. We've been busy packing up furniture for a magazine shoot this week, (which we're very excited about and can't wait to tell you more when it is published!) and working on a couple of great new upcycled designs.
I've also been working on some fun homes spreads for Fabulous magazine recently, including this one which featured in Saturday's Sun. I have so say, this was one of the my favourite briefs to work on and I loved sourcing the lovely luxe products and lifestyle shots. I hope you like it too.

Hi friends, hope you had a great weekend. What did you think to the Royal wedding? I must admit, I was glued to the TV all morning and thought it was wonderful. Kate just looked so elegant and William very cute and proud, a very special occasion indeed.
So, like we all do, I love finding new (to me) blogs and I stumbled on a beauty over the weekend - The Marion House Book. Emma is a Toronto-based designer who blogs about life in her old Victorian house including interior design, cooking and DIY projects.
I was instantly blown away by the bedroom she has recently completed and couldn't resist sharing it with you. It feels like such a tranquil, understated and stylish space and I adore the relaxed vibe achieved with the putty coloured walls, layering and raw textures.
The upcycled elements are awesome too - Emma commissioned a local carpenter to make the headboard and bench from reclaimed Douglas Fir barn beans and had the cushions (at the back) made from an old worn rug. I could imagine enjoying lovely weekend mornings here, with a mug of steaming coffee and the Sunday supplements - heaven.
