May: a review

As I sit here typing this it could not look less like May as the rain pours down and the skies resemble murky December days but until today it has been a lovely month in a number of different ways. There have been days that have felt like summer, spent with the best of friends, sitting outside and remembering what London in the sun is like. There have been wondrous day trips to the Chelsea Flower Show and Eltham Palace and weekends away in the countryside where Otto could run free and wild and swim in rivers, chasing sticks. There have also been birthdays, including Jules’s that we celebrated over the bank holiday weekend. It will be a month I remember for a long time to come. I hope that you have had a good month and that June holds exciting plans, too.

This month everyone’s Styling the Seasons images over on Instagram and the blog posts have been full of light and pretty Spring flowers and I think Caro’s beautiful images over on her blog The Twinkle Diaries sum up May so perfectly…

Here’s a list of all the wonderful Styling the Seasons blog posts from May:

The Twinkle Diaries / The Lovely Drawer / The Nice NestLittlemaldod / Growing SpacesThree Sons Later / The Ordinary LovelyLet’s Talk Mommy / Janice Issitt / The Vintage House That Could / The Villa on Mount Pleasant / Under the Plum Blossom Tree / We Made This Home / Lotts and Lots / Apartment Apothecary

Don’t forget, you can see all previous posts on our Styling the Seasons Pinterest board. If you’d like to take part in Styling the Seasons next month we have a very special prize for our favourite image from one of my favourite shops, Holly’s House. All you have to do is style any surface in your home – window sill, hallway table, wall, dining table, sideboard – to represent what June means to you.
