Up to the Guilds

I used to think of the Designer's Guild as pretty stuffy, but the email they sent me the other day changed my perception once and for all.

Here are some of my favourite items:

Cheep cheep – don't eat

Ok, I know this is an interior design blog but I simply have to show you these amazing cookies from Eleni's. I don't know if I could bring myself to eat one, as they must take so long to make. Perfect for spring though.

Muted magic

I normally find myself drawn towards bright, playful colours, but I found myself really driven towards this image of Nicolette Camille's kitchen. Despite its muted palette, the unusual plants make it really interesting. For more images like this head on over to Design*Sponge.

Shiny and clean

I told you a few weeks ago that I simply adore wall transfers (Transfer your affections, Truly stumped). Well it's for that reason that I simply have to share this amazing image of a bathroom, which I came across yesterday.

It was found on Inspace Locations and the decor is so beautifully unique that it would work in a bathroom of any size.

This is great news for me because the bathroom in my new house is rather on the small side. It will soon look fab when I apply some decoration this though.

A portrait of pleasure

Although the weather's taken a turn for the worse, there's no sign of spring disappearing from the world of interior design any time soon.

A few items in particular have caught my eye today, all of them bursting with colour and character.

Numero uno is the work of Wary Meyers, which offers an original take on pet and wedding portraits. This isn't the extent of their work though. It also includes adorable crests, clothing, interior design and they even painted canoes.

Lighting is often overlooked when people are planning their rooms, but it can make or break your interior design. Which brings me to my next pick of the day. The koro purple and black was made by Etsy crafter poaplum, who was inspired by coral and anemone. The best thing is that costs less than £50. What a bargain!

My third pick relates to a post from a few weeks ago (I'm hooked), where I mentioned my idea of mixing and matching coat hooks. It's these ├╝ber-cute sparrow hooks, which cost just $20 (£13) for two. I just love them.

Talking stripes

I've got just one image for you today. I found it on and it's the work of Mads Mogensen. As I'm currently planning the decoration of my living room this one just "spoke" to me. The painted stripes are smart but playful, and work well with simple furnishings. Not too sure I can stick to that though!

Space invaders

Yet another post from decor8 caught my eye today. Check out the space invader tiling in the kitchen. It's so simple but incredible none-the-less. I'm also loving the fact that owls are appearing in home furnishings so much this year. Very wise!

Domestic bliss

The lovely people at Decor8 have bought another lovely selection of items to my attention today. They showcased the work of Domestic Candy, aka Kerstin from Germany and I simply had to share it with you. It's perfect for spring, and most definitely ideal for the Easter weekend.

Clipped wings

I'll keep it short and sweet today.

Everyone needs cute items on their desk in order to feel inspired. This has to be one of the cutest out there, and was brought to my attention by Rare Bird Finds.

This chirping bird paper clip holder from Perpetual Kid doesn't only keep all your paper clips in one place, but it chirps when you remove one from its body.

And the best part is that it costs just £14.99 (£10.40). Bargain!

Spinging to life

The weather here in Bath is gorgeous at the moment. I'm starting to remember what spring and summer are like. It's been so long since we had those seasons that they seem a distant memory.

On account of spring being in full force, I thought I'd
share a few of my favourite images of the day with you.
