May – a review

I am currently with some of the most amazing women on a wondrous adventure that you can read more about on the Toast blog here. However, I had to drop by to show you my favourite Styling the Seasons shots from this month.

One of the things that Charlotte and I wanted to capture when we began Styling the Seasons was time to stop and reflect on the passing of time. It is far too easy, especially if you live in a city, to see a month fly by without noticing the change in light, weather, flowers growing and fading, colours changing. What I have loved about May is seeing the truly seasonal flowers of the month appearing in so many of your beautiful Styling the Seasons shots and blog posts.

I am not a massive fan of purple but the Lilacs of May make me fall in love with it just for this month! All three of my favourite styled surfaces this month have purple, simplicity and stillness in common – they all look like works of art and I love them.

Thank you to everybody this month who took some time to reflect, look around, appreciate and take in the changing of the seasons and passing of time. I hope that by styling a surface at home it has refreshed a forgotten space or cleared a dumping ground. We would love for you to join in next month, too!

Here is some inspiration from the gorgeous blog posts that were styled and written this month:

What does June mean to you? Charlotte and I will be styling up the same stool next month and we have no idea what the other is going to do with it so I’m excited to see the results. We are also lucky to have Loaf on board next month and our favourite June shot will win a £50 Loaf voucher. Find out more on Monday 1st June!

      Me too! The downside of living in London, I suppose, not sure people would appreciate me cutting down their front garden lilac trees! Your post was totally gorgeous, Catherine x
