{Relaxed Style}

When it comes to the decor of my living space I like to make sure there is a small corner of my apartment dedicated to creating a laid back, relaxed ambience - nothing too bright, but certainly not beige either. I think of it as an area to indulge in chic grey hues and warm, earthy tones mixed in with glass pendants and metal lamps. That's what I love about colour, you can create uplifting and vibrant spaces using poppy brights, and in the same corner of that room a simple white desk, metal lamp and sage chevron rug can create a space to gather thoughts and clear your mind. Whenever I need inspiration for these spaces I check out both the myles henry blog and these roving eyes - both a dead cert for inspiring in this area of decor. Here's what has my decor taste buds all a riot...

  2. Love the old worn wooden tables - I am fan of cottage style and there just seems to be something so inviting about this type of furniture. I agree - color can do so much if handled correctly. Have a lovely day enjoy the sun and clear skies. =)

  18. By lamp do you mean the black, modern chandelier? I am not too sure where it's sold I'm afraid, but this one from Pottery Barn has similarities: http://tinyurl.com/y5evkdr hope that helps.
