There’s something so dreamy about freshly cut flowers.
Columbia Road Flower Market in East London is a green fiend’s paradise. You’ll find an entire street boasting the stands of local farmers and florists, offering everything from impressive peonies and succulents to palms trees and cacti. They even have lemon trees… yes, I repeat… lemon trees!
Every Sunday morning, rain or shine, the market is on in full force – and it’s calling your name. After all, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content 🙂
Now, I’m just going to warn you. You may get overwhelmed your first time at the flower market (or second or third visit to be honest). There are just SO MANY FLOWERS (obviously!). Can’t decide between hydrangeas or tulips? No problem! You’re getting both because the option to mix-and-match is always a good idea.
Once you’re done perusing the flower stands, be sure to stop into one of Columbia Road’s quaint antique stores, cafes or pubs for a shopping browse and a cappuccino. Then, if you get lucky, you’ll stumble across one of the market’s street performers – last time there was an amazing accordion player. It made me feel like I was on vacation!
Bottom line: Columbia Road Flower Market is always the right move. Always be blooming!
Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end of the week so Happy FriYAY to you.
This weekend I’m spending my time hanging out with friends, getting my groove on at Zumba and hopefully heading to Camden Market in London for a little shopping. What girl doesn’t love a little retail therapy, am I right?
This morning I realised I haven’t shared my most recent purchase from the good ol’ Camden Market. It is the absolute BEST thing I have ever bought in my entire life. No, but really, I’m serious!
Drum roll please…….
This black, beige and white tapestry has completely transformed my room. Not only has it catered to my love for these adorable creatures (my sisters and I have always had an obsession) whilst matching my bedroom colour scheme, but it has also made the space that much more cosy.
If you’re like me who has always rented and have yet to own a property, tapestries are the way to go. They never damage walls and only need a few push pins to put into place. Not to mention they’re are extremely inexpensive and look fab 🙂 Mine was only £6.99.
Each weekend I seem to get more and more interiors inspo… let’s see what this weekend has in store 🙂
After a long day of work, all I really want to do is relax. And you know what makes me relax? – lots and lots and lots of pillows and comfy throws.
Here are a few of my recent favorite accent pillows I’ve stumbled upon on Pinterest recently … and yes, they are extremely random and do not match each other whatsoever, but are all adorable in their own way.
Moving is always a difficult process – but also a very fun one! It’s a chance to make a space your own. I am a huge fan of distressed wood, antiques and family heirlooms. I knew I wanted clean cut lines – a white, charcoal grey and mint color scheme – but with a rustic feel for my brand new room.
This antique trunk is one of my favorite furniture accents of all times. The history of my trunk goes as follows: my mom has had it “since she was a little girl” – and thank goodness. I’m in love. It’s a unique accent to my room, while practical for storage at the same time. So happy you didn’t throw this one out, mom!
I’d have to say my second favorite piece of furniture in my room is my bedside table, which the lovely Ms. Natalie discovered with me at HomeGoods. I love the combination of wood and splashes of color – not to mention how it acts as a perfect stand for vanilla candles, a sisterly love photo and a good book.
Now for the comfy part – my beautiful white Anthropologie Rosette Quilt bedding – equipped with grey, turquoise and mint accent pillows. Although white makes me incredibly nervous – I went for it because I wanted a versatile arrangement just in case I decide to make a spontaneous transition into another color scheme. The grey accent throw, also from HomeGoods, tops it off! I guess my first attempt at making a room “truly mine” wasn’t TOO disastrous 🙂 What’s your home decor style?
