For this month’s post, I’m so happy to share these images with you from a beautiful holiday let in Norfolk. The inspiration for styling this Victorian terrace, was an abundance of botanical elements, against a neutral background with a palette of soft greys, blues and greens, and white wooden floors. Lots of handmade and artisan touches mixed with contemporary homewares, make this house both comfortable and beautiful.
Make a statement on dressers by displaying pants en masse. From tiny succulents to lush monsteras, the botanical look is here to stay and is so easy to achieve. (Or fake it! There are so many brilliant options for artificial plants now.) When it comes to textiles, layer up rich velvets against graphic patterns – it’s all about contrasting textures and fabrics. I love the beautiful handmade macrame wall hanging that hangs above the mirror in the living room – it adds a cool 70’s vibe, which works beautifully with all the house plants.
The kitchen is a contemporary space, with white metro tiles adding to the feeling of light and space. A shelf displaying a mix of modern crockery and vintage finds adds a quirky touch, and plenty of pretty trailing greenery brings the outside in.
Adding the vintage element throughout a home is so important I think, and works so well when combined with modern high street finds. Look for interesting prints, especially anything with a botanical feel, or anything with interesting type looks really striking when framed.
My favourite room here however, is the dining room, with the Scandinavian style wooden cladding and shelving. Perfect for displaying vintage treasures, botanical prints and plants, the room also features a beautiful huge mirror, which bounces light back into the room. Somewhere perfect to sit and while away an hour for so with a good book!
