    Get the look - Simple Home

    If you have an office or a work-space at home, it needs to be a room you look forward to being in if you are ever going to motivate yourself to go and sit at that desk and get on with that task in hand!

    So this week for our look-book we’ve picked a rustic style office that uses lots of reclaimed furniture to give it that old vintage vibe and shown you how you can get the look with a few key pieces.

    Study simple home

     

    reclaimed writing desk loaf

    Desk

    The desk in this picture has actually been made using old ware-boards but if you’re not so handy with the hammer and nails, you can find lots of reclaimed wooden desks to buy without having to make it yourself. We like this one from Loaf as it is still quite delicate and so won’t overpower a smaller office space.

     

    work_in_progress_trolley baileys

    Storage Trolley

    Storage space is key to help keep you organised and de-cluttered, but it also doesn’t have to be boring! These trolleys from Baileys Home are a quirky way to keep all your files, or tools in order, plus you can move it around so that whatever you need is always in arms reach.

     

     

    display cabinet display cabinet

    Display Cabinet

    Some more quirky storage ideas with these old display cabinets. We like the symmetry they bring sitting on either side of the desk in this study, but you could always go for something bigger if space allows. If you want to stick with the mismatched smaller style we found two designs on Wayfair that we think will do the trick.

     

    globeglobe2

    Globe

    What accessory says study more than a globe?! Whatever kind of interior style you prefer check out justglobes.co.uk. You could go a traditional design like the ones in the picture or something more antique.

     

    industrial office chair

    Chair

    Although all the furniture is different in this room, the fact that it is all of a reclaimed style means that it matches in a sort of mismatched way! We’ve picked something with a little more support from Maisons Du Monde, as it is important to be comfortable if you’re going to be sitting and working in it all day.

     

    cage desk lamp

    Lamp

    For those late nights in the office, a cosy desk lamp is what you need. We went for something in-keeping with the industrial vibe and chose this cage table lamp from Mullan Lighting Designs.

    Get the look - Space Works

    Having kids might mean more stuff and more mess, but it also means more fun and definitely not lack of style! This week we're looking at a fun and colourful kitchen from Space Works and picking a few key items you can get to make your own kitchen stylish and family friendly.

    Space Works kitchen lookbook

     

    personalised letters

    Personalised Fabric Letters

    Let’s start with the personalised fabric letters. We love these! They will add some fun and colour to any room. You could go for a kitchen inspired word like the one in the picture, or initials of your family, it’s up to you. And with Laura's Love Letters on Etsy, you can even pick which fabric you want.

     

    Bar stool ikea

    Foldable Bar Stools

    A breakfast bar is great for family kitchens and these stools from IKEA are practical and won’t break the bank. Kids can have their breakfast or do their homework while the adults can cook dinner and still keep and eye on them.

     

    mixing bowls

    Colourful Kitchen Equipment

    Get the kids involved with the cooking with some colourful kitchen equipment. It’ll brighten up you kitchen, plus if you go for plastic you won’t be worried about anything breaking. We love this rainbow plastic mixing bowl set from Vremi.

    egg cup

    We also love these quirky egg cups from House of Fraser. Perfect for a fun and healthy breakfast.

     

    bunting

    Bunting

    Bunting isn’t just for parties! It can add colour and fun to your kitchen without taking away from you style. There are loads of bunting styles and patterns to choose from, but we like this floral pattered one from dotcomgiftshop.com.

     

    storage tins

    Funky Storage Tins

    If you’re short on space, invest in some really nice storage tins. They’re extra space and they’ll look nice on the kitchen counter. You could keep all the kid's baking in them, or after school snacks and treats they can help themselves to. There's so many to choose from, but we've gone for this very cute set from John Lewis.

     

    Pendant-Lamp-Magna-Eco-White

    Pendant Lamp

    This pendant lamp from lampandlight.co.uk is the perfect accessory to keep your kitchen feeling grown-up, with no worries of it breaking or getting covered in sticky fingerprints!

    Get the look - Life Unstyled

    Do you love the modern bohemian look? Here's how you can easily recreate this boho living room with just a few key accessories...

    Life Unstyled

     

    patterned boho blanket

    Patterned throws and and pom-pom blankets

    No need for an expensive new sofa; create the boho look with patterned throws and blankets and don't be afraid to mix a range of colours and styles. We love the selection of patterns and colours on Zazzle.co.uk as well as the range of pom-pom blankets on bohemiadesign.co.uk.

     

      sequin cushion   tassle cushion

    Cushions

    Again for the cushions, don't be afraid to mix and match all kinds of colours and styles. From left to right we've gone for a stylish geometric pattern from cultfurniture.com, a patchwork sequin from namaste-uk.com and a funky tasseled one from Wolf and Badger. The best thing about this is you can pick your favourite colours and patterns to make the room feel unique to you.

     

    macrame wall hanging

    Macrame Wall Hanging

    There are lots of lovely macrame wall hangings available to buy online, we particularly like this one from Urban Outfitters. Or, if you're a keen crafter, then you could easily make one of these yourself, in fact we have a free project on our blog on MAKEetc.

     

    moroccan ceiling lantern

    Moroccan Ceiling Lantern

    We love this Moroccan inspired ceiling lantern from moroccanbazaar.com to immediately give that boho vibe in any room.

     

    wall hanging planters

    Wall Hanging Planters

    If you're short on space then these hanging planters are a great way to add a bit of greenery into your room to give it that little lift. You could hang these ones from maisonsdumonde.com from the wall or the ceiling and plant them with ferns or succulents.

     

    triangle mirror

    Triangle Mirror

    Keeping on trend with the geometric shapes, we think this triangle mirror from Lisa Angel is perfect to complete that bohemian look. We also love the fact that it doubles as a mini shelf!

     

    If you like the look, check out Life Unstyled by Emily Henson for more interior inspiration.

    Get the look - Pale and Interesting

    Do you ever see interiors that you love, but struggle to replicate them in your own home? We thought we would help with some interior lookbooks from a few of the gorgeous shots we have from our lovely interiors range. This week is a vintage style living room from our new title Pale & Interesting

    Pale and Interesting

     

    Vintage trunk

    Wooden Storage Chest

    Whilst you might struggle to find an exact replica of this great wooden trunk that is being used as a quirky coffee table in this living room, there are plenty of designs and options out there to choose from. We love this reclaimed and recycled teak wood chest from Paraphernalia.com Not only does it look great but it doubles up as extra storage space!

     

    Vintage IKEA rug

     Vintage Rug

    While you could spend a lot of money on a vintage rug like the one in this picture, we think that this much cheaper IKEA version would look just as great!

     

    floral cushions

     Vintage Floral Cushions

    Cushions are a relatively cheap way to add some style into a living room without having to do any decorating! You can choose from a range of these floral cushions on the Pale & Interesting online store.

     

    standing light

     Standing Light

    The metal standing lamp in this room keeps it feeling modern with a touch of the industrial vibe. You can find a gorgeous version of your own on the Pale & Interesting online store.

     

    vintage cieling tiles

     Vintage Tin Ceiling Tiles

    The urban vibe continues with the tin ceiling tiles that have been used as a wall display. We love this idea and it’s easy to replicate in your own home. You could choose from a whole range of patterns and colours at tinceilingtiles.co.uk

    Find Your Interior Style - Bedrooms

    Still struggling to choose your favourite interior style? Take a look at these bedroom ideas for some home-style inspiration...

    The Scandinavian HomeScandi

    Nothing could be more peaceful and relaxing than a Scandi inspired bedroom. Minimalist and with a calming colour scheme it couldn't be a better atmosphere for long, untroubled sleeps and lazy Sunday lie ins.

     

    urban pioneerIndustrial

    To go for an industrial style bedroom, also go for minimalist design but think about adding some quirky touches. As it's a bedroom, you still want tit to feel cozy, so instead of raw, stripped back materials, this room has gone for a muted colour palette of greys, whites, blacks and browns. The rope swing and ladder give that fun industrial feel.

     

    Coastal LivingCoastal

    We love the soft yellows in the wood paneling in this coastal bedroom. The matching bedspreads and distressed bedside tables give the feel of a little cottage by the sea.

     

    Botanical StyleBotanical

    A botanical bedroom is a great place to have fun with fabrics. We love the matching cushions and wallpaper in this bedroom, but if you don't want to go all out and start decorating, you could always buy plant themed patterned duvet covers or quilts to add that botanical feel. The upside of this is you can redecorate as quickly as it takes to change the sheets!

     

    perfect english cottageCountry

    A wrought iron bed frame is a classic way to create the country feel in any bedroom. Finish with plain white sheets and a patterned quilt and you will hit the country cottage vibe, whether you choose to go traditional or more modern.

    Find your interior style - Bathrooms

    So you're planning an interior style for your home, but what about the bathroom? Can you really bring your chosen style into such a functional room without having to fork out for a whole new en-suite. The answer is, yes you can!

    The Scandinavian HomeScandi

    Ok, so we're not all lucky enough to live somewhere where the weather is nice enough to have an outdoor shower, but the principals behind it are very Scandi and something you can bring into your own indoor bathroom. Think simplicity and nature. Find some simple accessories with natural colours and textures, such as the wooden stool in this image that almost looks likes driftwood, or the simple white and blue towels to create a feeling of uncluttered calm in your bathroom.

     

    urban pioneerIndustrial

    Just a few simple touches can bring the industrial look into your bathroom. The old school electric lights in this image are not only easy to source, but they won't cost you the earth and won't require any plumbing! Look out for industrial style fixtures such as taps or shower heads, if you want to get a feel for the style without having to redecorate!

     

    Coastal Living Coastal

    A coastal style bathroom is probably the easiest room to achieve this look without spending a fortune. We love the sky blue bathtub in this picture, but just by adding seaside themed accessories you can easily transform your bathroom into a coastal dream. The jars of shells and pebbles in this picture are a subtle nod to the beach, but you could always go brighter and bolder - think beach huts, stripes and sunshine yellows.

     

    urban pioneerBotanical

    It's so easy to create your botanical bathroom, just add plants! You don't even need lots of plants to make an impact; against this white background the green fern stands out instantly. Go for tropical plants as they are used to the humidity. If you have plenty of light go for succulents, such as aloe. If you are lacking natural light, go for ferns and air plants.

     

    perfect english cottageCountry

    Again, you can create a country style bathroom with some simple accessories and fixtures. Even if you don't have a claw-foot bath, like the one in the image, the gold, traditional tap fixtures create the country style feel, coupled with the water jug and distressed wooden cupboard and shelving.

    Find your interior style - Living Spaces

    What kind of interior style suits you best? Bright botanical or calming coastal? Simple Scandi or classic country? This week we're looking at living spaces to help you pick your own interior style.

    The Scandinavian homeScandi

    Whilst most of us won't get the impressive view that goes with this Scandi Style living room, you can still get the look with lots of natural fabrics, such as wool and sheep skin rugs, coupled with the natural textures and colours of wooden paneling.

     

    botanical styleIndustrial

    We love the colours in the bare walls in this industrial style living room, just going to show that you don't need to paint to add colour to a room. The quirky light adds to the industrial effect, while the plants bring some life to the room to balance it out and make it feel more homely.

     

    Coastal Living Coastal

    Again, a bright, white room for this coastal style living space, with subtle little nods to the sea like the model sailboat in the corner, or the blue and white striped pillow on the sofa. The colours brought into the room are all natural and reflect the colours you would find on the seaside.

     

    botanical styleBotanical

    Going botanical style doesn't always have to mean going green! While this living space has lots of green plants, the vibrant blue wall provides a striking backdrop, creating a very tropical, colourful vibe.

     

    perfect english cottageCountry

    The exposed wooden beams, roaring fire and cosy, comfortable furniture make this a classic country living room. While this picture is of a very traditional country cottage, you can modernize it with brighter colours and less contrasting patterns, as long as you keep the comfy, homely vibe that a country interior needs!

    Find your interior style - Kitchens

    With so many different interiors styles to choose from, it can be tricky to know which one to go for when designing your home. To help you decide, we've put together some examples of our favourite interior styles, from the trending Scandi style to classic country homes. All you have to do is pick your favourite and start decorating! This week - kitchens!

    The Scandinavian home - kitchenScandi

    Scandi interiors are all about clean and de-cluttered spaces, often using lots of wood and natural finishes. With lots of natural light and light colours, a Scandi kitchen will be a simple but striking room.

     

    urban pioneer - kitchenIndustrial

    The industrial interior style is all about keeping the natural building materials of a room exposed. For a kitchen, this could mean exposed piping, bare floors or wooden panels. It will often be a clean, stripped back room with access to lots of natural light to make it feel bright and open.

     

    Coastal Living kitchenCoastal

    For a coastal style kitchen, think of a cross between Scandi and country. Lots of wood and light, bright colours. You're trying to bring the colours of the seaside into your home, so go for a balance of blues and whites and light wooden surfaces.

     

    Botanical Style kitchenBotanical

    Botanical style does what it says on the tin. If you love to bring the outdoors in then this is the style for you. Whether you go for tropical flowers and bright patterns, or lots of green foliage it's all about filling each room with nature inspired patterns, plants and accessories.

     

    perfect english cottage kitchenCountry

    A classic country kitchen is one of the cosiest places to be in a home! Flagstone floors, a big wooden table everyone can sit around, perhaps a selection of snoozing dogs and cats, it really is the heart of every country house.
