5 Things Pleasing 23/02

This week my five things pleasing are:

1. The new Citta Design range - there are some VERY cool new pieces in the new collection. You can see some of items in my most recent fashion mood board. Here are some more:

2. I came across this study by Henry & Co by accident when I was looking for something else. I love the use of colour and texture, the blue grass cloth and purple wallpaper are beautiful.

4.There have been a few beautiful sunny days here in Wellington this week and so I've been fantasizing about dreamy outdoor spaces...

5. It's not new to see crates used as shelves and storage, but I love this image and how the milk crates continue onto the ceiling and the bright pops of colour of the fruit.

5 Things Pleasing 16/02/14

This week my five things pleasing are:

1. SPOTS! They seem to be popping up everywhere in design lately. I am a fan. Especially of this spotty rug from Urban Outfitters.

2. PSYCHO! You know your interior design obsession is rubbing off on your husband when you are watching the black and white version of Psycho and he says, "Shame this isn't in colour so we could see the colour of those drapes and that wallpaper together."

3. VALENTINES! Pinterest was just overflowing with love this week.

4. CLOUDS - I love the the soothing clouds in contrast to the rustic loft space in this picture.

5. NEST homewares sale! I especially love this planter bag:

Psst if you didn't know Nest had returned to New Zealand, you can shop here:

5 things pleasing

Here are the top 5 pleasing things from my week 9/2/14

1. Cafe Neo (Willis St) new look - so much brighter, lighter and airy! Was enough to make me go back after a long absence. I love it when cafe's update their look.

2. Seafoam green - this colour seems to be popping up a lot lately and I say bring it on - I love it! Especially with gold.

3. - I only came across this website a couple of days ago and it makes following all my favourite blogs a breeze!  I can see all new blog posts on one easy to read feed. I love it so much I added a widget - Yessssss.

4. This saying - just because sometimes you just need to hear it.

5. The new issue of Est magazine - I love a design magazine and when it is free it is even better.
