Gin Time

Gin Time

Gin is so popular at the moment, anyone who is anyone on Instagram seem to have full on Gin shelves and bar carts, teaming with the stuff. Personally it’s not my tipple as it reminds me of doing the Atkins diet in the 90s! On a hot summers evening sat in the garden with a gorgeous glass, filled with gin, tonic, ice and a slice of lemon, does sound very appealing… and I wouldn’t say no, especially in this beautiful glass-wear from LSA International

An Old Favourite

An Old Favourite

Habitat is an old favourite of mine, as York had a lovely store, that I have bought many items from over the years… from can openers, to fab bedding, and their towels are AMAZING!  This chair really caught my eye, just for the simplicity of the design. This NAOKO grey and yellow Seater Sofa from Habitat. This would be perfect for a reading corner, or when the offspring want to upgrade their bedroom, aspiring to a more grown up look!

Kate Moss

Kate Moss

If you follow @stylingyorkpretty on Instagram, you will know how I love prints of Kate Moss. They are available from Art Republic.  She can instantly make a room appear more Rock ‘n’ Roll, and give the edge that no other model can. I also love Twiggy, but Kate Moss oozes coolness. This print of Kate Moss by VEEBEE is a gorgeous piece. A real investment with it being a limited edition of 80. How incredible would this look on the wall of any establishment, house, bar or restaurant. It’s such an amazing piece.

Slim Aarons

Slim Aarons

All Slim Aarons’ work is iconic. This is poolside gossip from Art Republic, set at the Palm Springs residence of Edgar Kaufman, in 1970. Recognisable instantly, for the glamour, location and privileged, beautiful people. This would look perfect in any room in your home. I would love this in my family bathroom, living room, or dining room for that matter.

Also take a look at ‘Keep Your Cool’ by Slim Aarons, love the casual couple enjoying the game of backgammon, while lounging in the pool.

 

Hand Crafted

Hand Crafted

Etsy is a fantastic place to pick up one off hand crafted items for the home. Artisan, boho style is massive at the moment and Macrame fits in with this look so well. Macarame gives a different texture to a scheme and I am loving the work of Sarah Simonds from Myoffthewallshop. I would highly recommend, as I have my eye on this one.

Season Change

Season Change

I love the changing seasons as it gives the perfect excuse to revamp your interiors to suit the weather. All the new stock hits the shops, and the new look books are flowing with inspiration. Little touches can make a big difference to your decor. Absolutely love this moose head from Cox and Cox. With an antique gold finish, from cast resin. A brilliant new addition to your home for the coming winter months! Can’t believe how cheap this is only £18.50!!!
