Outdoor Living

The sounds and smells of summer ..... ahh, it's what I live for all year round. It's finally the month of July and summer has arrived!

An outdoor living space is so important to me, somewhere to shade from the heat of the mid-day sun and a space to relax on those balmy evenings, watching the sun set and listening to the birds sing, Bliss!

A low maintenance decked area is an ideal way to enjoy that spur of the moment flop in the garden (without the guilt of not having dusted off the lawn mower in the last 2 weeks!) This really IS an outdoor living space, with sumptuous cushions, throws and cozy lighting. Try these cafe style festoon lights from the peastyle collection to add that cool vibe to your outdoor haven.

Adding some cushions to an outdoor sofa is just the ultimate in luxe living. I know, I know! we in the UK are not blessed with long spells of sunshine, so we need to keep traipsing back and fore to the shed to put them away, oh but when they are out and you can rest your weary head on some cushion-idge - it really is just dreamy. I love the mix of rustic wood and monochorme soft furnishing in this garden escape. Try some peastyle cushions to add some comfort to your precious sunbathing time. 

Family gatherings around a big expansive table where the kids can go free range is a massive bonus of summer time meals. This rustic chic dining area is full of gorgeousness don't you think? From the natural lamp shades to the table centrepieces - I want it all! If I lived here, I'm pretty sure I'd get good at making sourdough too (dreaming ..... )

Try peastyle's finishing touches with our lampshades and centrepieces to bring your indoor comforts outside.

Happy summer! enjoy those long evenings in your outdoor living spaces and remember to tag and share your outdoor spaces with us over on instagram

Tafwyl 2016

I love getting out from behind my desk and taking a bit of peastyle on the road. 

Next month I'll be hoping and praying for some dry weather when we take a stall and visit Cardiff's iconic city festival Tafwyl 

The weekend long festival will take over the stunning grounds of Cardiff Castle on July 2nd & 3rd with a dazzling array of some of the biggest names in Welsh arts, culture & sports.

Entry to Cardiff Castle and the festival is FREE during the event, take a look at the programme here. Come down and enjoy the weekend in the capitol and pop by our stall and pick up some peastyle to take home!

A room that has "wowed" me

I was asked recently by a magazine to describe a room that has particularly "wowed" me. It was pretty impossible to whittle it down to just one, there are just so many to choose from!

It prompted me to start writing short posts on my blog (something on my "to do" list for a while now!) this way I can share with you what inspires me, interiors that make my heart beat a little faster and ...... well other random (but hopefully interesting) things. 

So here goes, I'm a self confessed addict of Instagram, there are seemingly endless accounts full of heart-stoppingly gorgeous homes out there and it's probably my main source of interiors inspiration.

The houses and rooms that particularly draw me in are the effortlessly stylish Scandinavian ones, with their bright white walls, floor to ceiling windows and cozy log burners.

I have been regularly sharing my favourite shots over on Instagram  for a while now, tagging them with #peasshotoftheday. Enjoy swooning over some of them here or head over to my instagram feed for a fuller selection.
