Styling Idea # 87 Tiles with Style

INSPIRATION FOR THIS POST

When you are in style land you meet lots of people and lots of people doing amazing things. I am always mega jealous and impressed when I meet peeps who are young guns. (Where did all the Under-Aged Over Achievers come from?). Surely these people need to go overseas and get drunk for a year, loose their identity, their heart, their perspective, their favourite jackets and find it all just in time to be on the right side of 30? No? Just me? Ok.

One of these clever peoples is the lovely Renee Anne- check out this clever illustrator/ stylist/business owner/tweeter/blogger/partner of Finders Keepers here. It is because of her that found this awesome kit for Pom Poms – remember when i did the post for the nursery Styling Idea #54? Yep – now you can buy a kit!

What does this have to do with my styling idea??? Not a thing.

  • Obviously I am not advocating building a cafe size bar in your house but I am saying that having a little think about the tiles in your space can make a HUGE difference!
  • This floor is simply magnificent and should be used in an entrance, kitchen, bathroom, outdoor living area or any other space that you desire- I love them.
  • Follow this up with my favourite white tile effect of the moment- brick patterned rectangle tiles with dark grout! mmmmm
  • Insert mirrors, indoor plants, cool stools (covered in vinyl for effect), glass shelves, bentwood chairs and a beer tap and you would have my idea of a heaven.

Styling Idea # 59 Pom Poms in Kids Bedrooms

INSPIRATION FOR THIS POST

I have started to receive a few requests for spaces or ideas for spaces. I haven’t forgotten about these request so I thought I better get started on delivering some images around these requests. My very talented and wonderful friend in NY is expecting her first baby and has requested some nursery looks. This is the same talented and wonderful friend who is about to take over the world with her amazing new baby products under her company Elks and Angels– talk about being busy! If you have a moment or are looking for a something special for your baby or as a present I urge to check out the site- these products are about to be the item that every celebrity is ordering so you should be quick I say.

  • Don’t you just love how these can add so much colour to a clean space? Pick any colour and repeat like crazy or develop a colour scheme- I love the peachy pinks above.
  • If you want to keep the space clean and crisp white pom poms would look amazing too.
  • Okay- so you are thinking nice idea Sara but where would I find these? I happen to know that they are super easy to make and you can select different papers and create your own pom poms by checking out Martha Stewarts website here. (PS did you know over 2 million people follow her on Twitter?)
  • These are a great idea for a nursery but you could use them in a kids bedroom too.

There are plenty more ideas on Kids Bedrooms to come so I have developed a category for them so you can search through later as I update.
