As we are really close to Christmas now, I am hanging my boots up until the New Year – although I no doubt will be posting pictures over the festive period on my instagram. I can’t stay away.
I thought you might like to see some of my favourite posts for this year – the ones I have enjoyed making the most. Although actually, I have enjoyed curating all of them.
If you remember way back in Spring, I did up my living room a little and made new curtains, cushions with Designer’s Guild fabrics and put up some new artwork ? Well, this is it again above and you can see it in full here.
More and more, I’ve loved trying out recipes in 2016 and sharing a few with you. My Dad is a meeeaan curry chef and passed on his wisdom with a lovely monkfish curry for this post. Omg – it was tasty. Do try it out.
Then there were the moodboards.
I came up with three colour palettes that I really liked for the bedroom. Are you thinking now that I am a huge fan of green ? Well, I am, but check out my other boards – and you will actually see the bedroom reveal early next year ( It was delayed due to some things taking longer than expected ) and I can’t want to show you.
In the Summer, we brightened up the design room with some new paint and and accessories. It feels much more contemporary now and still love the freshness. Unbelievably, I’ve managed to keep those fabrics in the cupboard all pretty neat too .. somehow.
If you’d like a little tour around the room then you can find the post here.
Like I say, lots of things I have enjoyed doing this year – but this is the fifth one I have chosen.
I was asked by The Joy to Plants to photograph some Speciality Orchids as they are Houseplant of the Month for November. It has made me really fall in love with them. In fact I’ve become a bit of a nerd when it comes to looking after them here at home. Such amazing and interesting flowers. I’ve never really been very good at looking after plants but the last year has made me much more aware of their needs and, well, they just look so lovely around the home don’t they ?
So, that’s my little roundup. Have you enjoyed any posts in particular ? Which ones do you like the most .. my days out, recipes, home DIYs or fashion shots ?
Once again this year, I’ve been lucky to interview some really inspiring designers and authors. In January I have another really good one.
I’d like to also say a big thanks to all of you who have added your amazing and colourful photographs to #InspirationIsColour on instagram – we are heading toward 8000 and it’s such a treat to see and share them on my other account @InspirationIsColour.
Have a really Happy Christmas. Hope you get to relax and enjoy some time with your loved ones.
Thanks for reading.
