Something to Dwell on…

I have spent this week with my flat in complete chaos. Katharine Peachey came to shoot my kitchen and living room so that I can finally share the changes I have made with you next week – hurrah! Around that I squeezed in some styling for Dwell to showcase a few of their lovely products in my home. I think it’s a great idea to be able to see homewares in situ, especially if you like buying online like I do, as standard product shots sometimes don’t do the item justice.

I chose a variety of accessories to show you, picking up on the current copper and blush trend with a copper table lamp, a beautiful wool rug (I have been lusting after one of these Berber style rugs since forever – gutted I can’t keep it!) and a few bits to add a different feel to my bedroom.

Look forward to hearing what you think…

My newly painted living room in Farrow & Ball’s Peignoir provides the perfect blush pink backdrop for this striking copper table lamp. I love the combination of pink, copper and green plants.

My home office seemed like the obvious spot for this gorgeous wool rug. If it was going to stay here permanently I would make it a monochromatic scheme and get rid of the blue accents. Alas, this soft, sumptuous rug is being collected today and even Otto will be sad to see it go!

I fell in love with this grey bedspread when I did some in store styling for Dwell and it’s amazing how different my bedroom feels replacing the pink accents with this lovely grey. This colour is so calming and the quilt itself is so soft and luxurious. At this time of year I like to pack my feather duvet away and use a linen sheet and a quilt for the warmer nights.

This lovely Alabaster pot is actually sold as a toothbrush holder but it makes a perfect vase or pen pot and the marble and wood board is ideal for tea in bed.

It always amazes me how adding just one statement piece to a room can completely transform how it feels so I really enjoyed seeing the rooms in my flat look and feel totally different to me for a short while. It’s got me thinking…ok, I am promising to myself that I am not going to do anymore DIY or major changes for at least six months. After that though, you never know!
