Butterfly dreams

I have to recommend a great artist based in the Bath area. I stumbled upon him after he had a few paintings displayed in my local Starbucks. He paints all my favourite themes including sunsets and oriental landscapes but most importantly he paints funky paintings with a butterfly theme.

Anyone who knows me will know that butterfly designs are my thing and I can't wait to have the painting hanging up in my home. He is very accommodating so check out his work and treat yourself to something funky and special.

Oriental cutey

The Pier has to be one of my favourite shops. It's always full of interesting but affordable objects that somehow all seem to match my interior styles.

One of their best ever items though has to be this oriental figurine. She's really cute, is about 30cm tall and the best part is that she costs just £12.

She could be used as an isolated piece (as shown left) or amongst other objects of a similar theme.

Check out her and similar cool items at The Pier.

Welcome to Decs and the City

For a long time now I have had an obsession with interior design. Because however, I have never been a homeowner, I have always been limited in the ways that I can implement my ideas. I know that many others face the same problem.

Another issue that I often have to contend with, like many others in rental properties, is the fact that I mostly rent inner-city properties that are often limited in space.

Decs in the City will be a blog about easy ways to make the most of "your" home. It will feature lovely knick-knacks that can help personalise your space, tips for saving space, and news about cool new products and decorating techniques.

Think Living Etc and Elle Decoration for those without much time, space, flexibility and in most cases money.

Make your house a home.
