Love is all around

I have been noticing lots of red hearts and messages of love lately, in homewares and fashion.

I have created a mood board with some of my favourites.


For those items not branded in my mood board, here are the details on where you can get them.

  •  DO WHAT YOU LOVE print from The Love Shop
  •  LOVE ME heart pillow (part of a 2 pillow set) from Chakra Pennywhistle
  •  Heart photo holder from French Bazaar
  •  P.S. I LOVE SHOES. print from Making It My Style
(yes, that’s me)

Tin ceiling panels

I really want to use patterned tin ceiling panels painted in a high-gloss black somewhere in our house.  I am considering the ceiling of the hallway running from the front door through to the living spaces (see floor plan).  The hallway has a very high ceiling, so I don’t think the black will be too overwhelming.

Here are my favourite ceiling panel designs from Pressed Tin Panels.

‘Original’

‘Melbourne’

‘Lattice’
‘Shield’


The other option is to do a feature wall in these panels somewhere in the house.

And just so you don’t think I’m crazy, here are some great examples of tin ceiling panels in use, all courtesy of Pressed Tin Panels.
