#peasshotoftheday

Scrolling through instagram for inspiration and keeping up with emerging trends is part and parcel of my work. But most of the time, honestly, it just doesn't feel like work at all. It's a fix, as good as a chocolate bar with a cup of tea (this often happens at the same time as a good scrolling session)

I've been curating the hashtag #peasshotoftheday for a while now, it's a way for me to collect homestyle ideas and snippets of rooms that inspire me.  Sharing these images on my feed has been a wonderful way to connect with like minded interiors addicts and engaging with you by opening up a conversation.

I started the hashtag and still do, simply to share rooms that I love, and looking back through them, it's clear that I have a signature style. It seems to be a mixture of "Natural, Minimal, Simple, Scandi and simple tones" it's one thing naming a style and putting it into words, but just browsing through the collection will give you a much better picture of my influences and style.

Lighting Up Your Autumn Home

Fall back, Spring forward .............. the the only way I can remember that the clocks go back the end of this month (and not forward duh!)

I struggle with the end of the summer and it takes me a good month to accept that the colder months are on their way, until that is, I start to light the fire and realise that I can pop the little lights on around the house and burn some candles.

Hygge is a massive buzz word at the moment, everywhere I turn I seem to hear people referring to it. The Danes embrace the long dark winter months with "hygge" meaning coziness (as an attempt to scratch the surface of the word)

Lighting the house in the coming months becomes a really important part of embracing the greyer skies that lie ahead. So I've brought you a collection of lovely lighting that will bring a little Hygge into your homes.

I love these informal Z1 lamp shades by Ay Illuninate, creating a relaxed and carefree centrepiece to a scheme. They are a bit on the expensive side though £325 (cough) but we do a great "get the look" alternative at peastyle here for fraction of the cost.

Using task lighting is a great way of dimming the overall lighting in the room without compromising on being able to see your book, sketch book or glass of wine! These concrete and brass standard lamps are one of my favourite products in the peastyle shop at the moment

There are some fabulous bulbs out there now, I know! who'd have believed that the bulb would take centre stage! But it just works doesn't it? A bit like staring into an open fire, the old fashioned styled bulbs where the filament is a thing of beauty, can make a simple bulb holder into a great statement light. Shop cool lighting from peastyle shop here and enjoy some Hygge this winter.

The colder darker months aren't so bad after all!

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

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.
