Time for Tea

♥ Hello, Digital Girls (& Guys!). As always, I’m getting excited about my Summer move to London and buying a pad with my boyfriend. But rather than think about all the mortgage and financial stuff, it’s pretty decorations and beautiful wallpaper that occupy my mind.

♥ We’ll be taking quite a lot from our current home but injecting some much needed style into the new place. One thing I really want to sort out is the kitchen and replace our dull Ikea plates with something more chic and swap the mix-matched mugs for delicate tea cups and floral printed side plates.

♥ Interiors wise, I’m very much into the minimal look and prefer bright whites and contrasting grey tones to create an airy feel. Saying that, I also love an injection of colour in the form of feminine shades of blue, purple and pink.

♥ When I saw the newest collection from Villeroy & Boch, it was like it was designed in my dreams! Following the success of their Marie Fleur tablewear collection, Villeroy & Boch have extended the range to include a new grey colourway that would look so pretty in any country cottage, family home or city pad. Starting from just £6.50, the collection is available online and in stores and I for one am certainly adding the whole range to my wishlist.

♥ Now all I need is for summer to come so I can serve iced tea in the teacups and homemade bread and chutney on the pretty places. Ahh…

♥ Interior Inspiration

♥ One of the many exciting things happening for me in 2013 is a move to London! I’m aiming to get a great graduate job for June 2013 in the capital city. My boyfriend works in London and commutes from our home every day in Nottingham so, of course, it makes sense for him to move with me.


♥ We already live together in a sweet little house on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border and I love looking out from our bed every morning to see the swans and ducks float down the canal opposite our house. I don’t quite know the logistics yet- I may move into a house share first and Robin will follow or we might find and buy somewhere ready for June- but I know I’ll miss the countryside.

♥ Saying that, London is so exciting. I can’t wait to spend weekends exploring restaurants and London’s fab parks, riding Boris Bikes and meeting up with all my London friends for after work cocktails and weekend pizza nights.

♥ I’ve been quite poorly with a severe ear infection (hence the lack of blogging) so I’ve spent the time looking at gorgeous London 1 bed flats and pinning some interiors inspiration to my Pinterest boards.

♥ My boyfriend hasn’t done much in terms of decoration on our current house so I’m looking forward to making our London flat our own, filled with quirky touches and designer decorations. I thought I’d share some of the interiors looks I’m loving right now.
