Day 109: Pale Pink & Worn Wood

A calming mix of pale pink & worn wood for a beachy, reclaimed space. I love the small frame that almost blends into the wall and is then framed itself by the wood work.

Day 108: Quilts, Patterns & Glam

A complete mix of styles and patterns that still makes for a cosy, interesting bedroom.

Day 105: The Alps Meet Morocco

Try mixing styles and inspiration from different countries for a rustic, unique room like this beautiful bedroom....

Day 103: School Reunions

Beautiful way of squeezing together long landscape frames into an odd angled wall.

Day 102: Neon Radiators

Such a traditional, historic looking room that is made modern by blending old and new in a really creative, crazy way. Painting the room and panelling a cool, blue and then colouring the old-fashioned iron radiators that vibrant neon yellow that stands out so strong is such a great idea... love it!

Day 101: Monochrome Office

Who needs colour anyway? Using just block and white can still make for an interesting room by making sure you have plenty of textures with patterned prints, interestingly shaped things on display and stacked books and magazines.

Day 100: Urban Tribes

Love the colours of these geometric, tribal printed floor pillows! Look great with the natural wood and would be amazing garden cushions.

Day 99: What a Wall

Just put it in a frame and hang it all on the wall- drawings, puzzles, plates, records, pages from books, photos, figurines and anything else to make a completely unique and crazy wall of personal bits and pieces.

Day 97: 'Remember This' Kitchen

Chalk board kitchen with plenty of space to write notes and lists under the hanging and open shelves. Has a country, Frenchy feel to it that I love.

Day 93: Going Nowhere

Stacked vintage suitcases topped with a retro fan. My kind of corner display of stuff!

Day 92: Folk House Feelings

I guess I probably wouldn't want to actually live here... but really love the strong, dark wood against the delicate blues and floral prints. Gives a country, mountain hut feel!

Day 90: Clip on Art

If your in rented accommodation its a great idea cause you can get away with making barely any marks on the wall but still being able to hang lots of photos.

Day 89: Photography Forward

I don't think I've ever seen a photo frame this big! And I love how its filled with personal snap shots, close up's, landscapes, black and white, colour, portraits and because of the uniform size it works amazingly. Plus the retro lamp and side table are really fun alongside that huge home made piece of art work.

Day 87: Tiled Study Collage

If your the sort of worker that needs order and a format, this is for you..... Create a perfectly gridded layout of modern and abstract photos and postcards, with minimal colours to tie them all together in your study. Pretty sure that would focus your working energy and kind of makes me want to tidy up!

Day 86: Coloured In Pantry

Great idea to make a pantry more exciting by painting the inside a different, contrasting and bold colour from the outside walls. This one has even used chalk board paint in the same colour to make a note pad on the inside door.

Day 85: Minty Fresh

Country fresh minty green units where the contrasts of the panelled doors and back board and then the bare brick work with the smooth chrome of the fridge, sink and cooker.

Day 84: Colour Me Cosy

Its just the colours that I love here... those tangerine orange and fuchsia pink pillows and the dusky rose throw. Looks like a calm, summery place to lay around in.

Day 83: Shabby Chic (Ahh I said it)

I hate the term but I guess this is the epitome of shabby chic. Worn and roughed up benches, chairs and storage with odd collected vases and lots of white. I guess it is all the different textures and materials that come through to make this very plain space more interesting and gives it a bit of depth that can be lost in white rooms.

Day 82: Canary Yellow Features

Way to make a statement! Love how that beautiful yellow is subtly carried through the room by using yellow in some of the artwork hanging above. The kitsch and slightly outdated look of the fake fire, ceiling moulds and floor tiles is somehow turned around into being modern and minimally cool by that powerful feature colour.

Day 81: Cuboid Kitchen

I am in love with these bold teal geometric kitchen tiles that work so well with the smooth lines and curve of the wood and Scandinavian styled cooking accessories. It has a moody, grown up feel that makes you want to cook something that is more like a science experiment than food (no cake baking here!), or maybe thats just me?

Day 80: Candy Flag Door

A traditional panelled door painted with contrasting candy pastel colours in geometric shapes? Why not if it looks this good?

Day 79: Yellow Stencilled Stairs

Amazing stencilled stairs give the effect of Mediterranean tiles, such a unique way to brighten up a hallway!
Fabulous idea!
