#Liking right now

Recently I've seen a lot of bloggers posting about things they're liking right now, or are really influenced by. So, I thought I'd take the opportunity and follow in their footsteps. Here's one of my all time favourite design trends... Stripes! I've recently purchased a ridiculous amount of Breton style t-shirts and can't not wait to wear them with stripe pride!

Trend: Monochrome

I am really loving the monochrome trend that's currently swooning over the pages of interior magazines everywhere right now. I don't usually like understated spaces although the subtle hints of grey, gold, yellow and woodgrain are combined to give a modern, contemporary twist to the classic monochrome! (The stripes are just an added bonus!)

One month on..

I can not believe that it's been over a month since my last blog post, despite promising to myself that I would blog more often. Oh well, here I am now! 

I've been so busy the past month, visiting exhibitions, spring organising, and to my delight lots of scrapbooking. Have definitely missed getting my hands on paper, scissors and glue to create beautiful things but am hooked once again and am aiming to scrapbook at least two layouts a month. Fingers crossed I will have a full scrapbook by the end of 2014. 

Not only has scrapbooking been at top of the agenda a lot recently, but additionally I have been visiting exhibitions as part of my '14 things for 2014'. I'm really enjoying the task of trying to fit in as many as possible (or at least one per month) and Januray gave me the oppertunity to visit a variety of beautiful exhibitions. Pearls at the V&A was such a spectacular combination of jewellery, art and science. There were so many beautiful objects and interesting artefacts to look at. I couldn't help but treat myself to the exclusive exhibition book. I haven't stopped flicking through the pages! 

Visiting local exhibitions is also important to me, so during January I visited the Winter Wildlife exhibition. Paintings, drawings and prints of dramatic landscapes and picturesque scenes of british winter wildlife are celebrated within the historic walls of the Assembly House, Norwich. Despite its tiny size, the exhibition was definitely a worth while visit and source of inspiration. 

On a final note, as part of being more organised this year, I will try to update my blog on a more regular basis. Good luck me... Happy blogging!
