NOTTING HILL - This stunning hallway in a Notting Hill property provides inspiration whilst we are decorating in Nottingham for my son and daughter in law at their brand new home - it was originally painted all white but now the time has come to start adding some colour !! Keeping the palette limited we are adding silver to neutral tones in the sitting room - understated glamour is the look - all will be revealed shortly but in the meantime this hallway certainly sets the tone for this multi million pound property that can only be purchased with the Bitcoin currency ( photo courtesy of the Daily Mail ) #white #gold #interiors ##hallway #entrance #entranceway #staircase #lighting #mirrors #artwork #outsidein #outsideinside #greenery #velvet #grey #hallwaydecor #hallwaydecorating #interiordesigner
TIME TO LIGHT THE CANDLES !! Somehow winter has come early ! No mellow Autumn days to savour we are plunged straight into winter gales / heavy rain and low light levels - The Solution - embrace it !! Bring out the throws /add fur/ introduce cinnamon and pine and light those candles !

CENTRE STAGE - these are just a few of the numerous blooms that will be on stage with me tonight when I demonstrate for one of he flower clubs in the Chester area (UK) This rose always reminds me of the bouquet I created for @charschofield when she married @skinnysco my son at their glorious wedding - her main choice of flowers were pink roses and pink lilies with masses of white gysophilia - it really was a perfect day and one I will never forget ! #rose #nafasdemonstrator #pinkrose #weddingday #floraldemonstrator #nafas #flowersnorthwest #colour #blooms #pinkblooms #instadesigner #instacreative #instagardeners
COLOUR BURST !( @shaunaglenn ) the neutral walls of this hallway are the perfect contrast for the layers of glorious colour that have been added ! Who couldn't fail to have their spirits lifted on entering this glorious feast for the eyes ! A definite antidote to the continuous grey we are suffering at the moment ! Wishing you all a great start to the day x #colours #coloursplash #colourpop #turquoise #orange #entranceway #entrance #hallway #stairunner #pattern #patterns #lighting #doorgarland #garland #flowergarland #instadesign #instadesigner #colourtherapist
GLAMOUR ! Gold accents add true glamour to this stunning all white galley kitchen ! This is by far my preferred arrangements for a kitchen - the galley ! So easy and efficient to work in and with a seating area at one end a great place for friends and family to be close ! #kitchen #galley kitchen #kitchen inspiration #whitekitchen #kitchenglamour #glamorouskitchen #goldkitchen #kitchendesign #marble #goldlighting #outsideinside #workplace #entertainingspace #kitchendesign #kitchendesigner @brynnolsondesigngroup #instakitchens #instakitchendesign
TRANSFORMATION in progress - Approximately a year ago @instagramcreative and her partner took over a restoration project a property that had been untouched for 30 years whilst liveable it needed hauling into the 21st century - burgundy / pink and peach dominated in every room - the dining room seen here before and after now looks stunning in white and navy - the curtains are now ready and we are so looking forward to hanging them ! @instagramcreative #kellyhoppen #wallpaper #diningroom #butterflycollection #birdcage #outsideinside #interiors #interiordesign #designer #design #mirror #bookcase #picoftheday #photoftheday #bestoftheday #instainteriors
LET THERE BE LIGHT !! (@townandcountrystyle) stunning double height windows flood this stunning open plan living space with light - a must have as fear as I'm concerned ! Huge tables lend themselves to the possibility of great tablescapes and a nautical theme compliments the neutral room setting I imagine much laughter and great conversation in this versatile setting #open plan #contemporary #white #nautical #candles #stripe #outsideinside #outsidein #lighting #interiors #interiordesign #architect #designer #stylust #picoftheday #photoftheday
MATCHING the STRIPES - In a few days time we will be matching the stripes for @skinnysco and our gorgeous daughter in law @charschofield ( let the wallpapering commence ) and will be meeting up again with one of a pair of mischief makers ! This is a seating area created in their monochrome kitchen for weary adults to temporarily park themselves - this one was having none of it and as soon as we had created the padded back rest and placed the ottoman and cushions in place she claimed it as her own - this very stylish cat knows she looks good matching the stripes !! #catsofinstagram #interiorscat #monochrome #mainecoone #bkackandwhite #stripe #cat #instacat #wicker #kitchen #creative #blackcat #interiors #interiordesign #design #designer #picoftheday #interiorstylist
COSY INSIDE - A concealed radiator adds warmth in this stunning conservatory at the home of Butter Wakefield in this London villa - a view of the garden and glorious coffee table books and a location like this could find me here for some time ! #interiors #interiordesign #designer #butterwakefield #bkackandwhite #gardenroom #conservatory #sunroom #outsideinside #lantern #art #display #gardener #designer #creative #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagarden #instadecor

A TOUCH of GOLD contrasts well with this sheer explosion of colour !! The plain white background allows the colours to sing out !

BLUE and WHITE OBSESSION ! A free day !! Is there such a thing ? At last time to sew ! @instagramcreative has created a navy blue dining room - dramatic ( this is not it ) and I am hand sewing full length navy blue velvet curtains for it - many years ago I was taught all the different stitching processes required - I find it relaxing and the finish quite simply cannot be beaten ! Not a quick job but then hopefully they will provide many years of pleasure - 1 room down a houseful to go at ! ( source Pinterest ) Here the white accents and patterns add drama and at night the candle light will add to the already dramatic atmosphere ! #interiors #interiordesign #interiordesigner #blueandwhite #navyblue #linen #pattern #candle #lighting #stripe #traditional #art #contemporary #eclectic #picoftheday #photoftheday #bestoftheday #instadecor
ADDING A SPLASH ! of yellow brings this whole room set to life ( source Pinterest ) dark dramatic walls and a sofa that lures you in ! On a cold windy wintery feeling afternoon I would like to be spending time here ! Instead a round trip of 160 miles with a stage show in between and home before midnight is on the agenda !! Never a dull moment ! What are you up to this evening ? #floral designer #botanicals #botanical #floral yellow #blue lighting #sofa #pattern #winter #interiors #interiordesigner #picoftheday #photoftheday #bestoftheday #instadecor
HELLIGAN ! The amazing Lost Gardens of HELLIGAN such a treat whilst in Cornwall still felt like summer - where did that go ?? #helligan #cornwall #lostgardensofhelugan #watergarden #sunkengarden #fountain #metalwork #symmetry #waterlily #summer garden #gardener #picoftheday #photoftheday instagarden
WAITING ! These dark burgundy lilies are ready and waiting for their stage appearance later this week - for sure they will be the star of the show in the finale piece - I always believe in presenting lilies fully open and not in bud form as we want their impact on stage and not a week later after the event ! It means nursing them for at least a week before the event and them transporting them carefully - worth it ! #nafas #nafasdemonstrator #lilies #bulb #bloom #colour #autumncolour #florist #flowerarranger #gardener #picoftheday #photoftheday #bestoftheday #instaflower
MONDAY STARTS HERE !! The light levels might be akin to mid winter outside but this light bright decor @onekingslane makes the perfect place to start the week ! With energy levels at full speed ahead ( won't last long ) I can't wait to get going with what the week holds ahead ! Wishing you all a great week - lets get started ! #yellow #sittingroom #blueandwhite #blue #pattern #yellowsofa #onekingslane #interiors #interiordesign #botanical #botanicalart #picoftheday #photoftheday #bestoftheday #instadecor
NATURE TABLE - as you know I just have to have flowers in my life everyday ! This is the welcome that greets you in my entrance as I invite you in - this week the cool grey decor lends itself to pink tones - ice pink nerines do their own thing whilst the rosy coloured spathes of the anthuriums add depth - in my open plan house all this is constantly on view wherever you are downstairs making you know that you have entered my world - The Garden House #athome #myhome #entrance #gardenroom #entrance #porch #grey #fiftyshadesofgrey #pink #white #objet #urn #mirror #console #openplan #picoftheday #ohotoftheday #bestoftheday #interiors #florist #flowerarranger #floraldesign
