organising art supplies

over the past year i’ve been making much more of an effort to be organised, and making sure that what i need is to hand.  i’ve always been a bit of an ‘organised chaos’ type of person (chaos is a bit excessive a word!) so it’s not been a huge stretch to properly organise things in my life. i’ve gotten rid of some things i simply don’t need anymore and simplified other things such as storage items.

inspiration board of yellow and grey items for the living room

havill yellow throwmomo sofa / sakura cushion / flap wall clock / bobby floor lamp

we are on a seemingly constant effort to improve our living room. as it is now it’s the best it’s been, but there’s still some things i would like to do to improve it further. two of the main things are to have a nice vintage or retro style sofa instead of the horrible lumpy thing we currently have, and to have a large mirror on the wall opposite the windows in an attempt to reflect the little amount of light that enters.
besides that, i’d like to have a bit more of a colour scheme. i love an eclectic mismatched look, but i think it would suit this space well to have it ‘tied together’ a bit more. yellow is one of my favourite colours and i think it’d do a tremendous job in making the room a bit brighter.
i’m a sucker for a good blanket or throw and i think they’re a great way to bring colour into a room as well as being useful. if you’re a fan of a minimal/black and white look in your home, accessories are definitely one of the best ways to bring colour in without being too overwhelming.
do you have any tips for making a dark room seem a little brighter?

a bit before christmas we wanted to paint the room (mostly to cover some mould stains up – yuk) i wish i could say we were able to take down the horrible textured wallpaper and use something nice, or even use a nice coloured paint ..but no, we were stuck with magnolia. no super pristine, white minimal room for you here, ha! oh well, it still looks better than it did. i mean, i still want a nicer carpet but you can’t have everything at once eh?

black and white christmas wishlist

…or some things to get with christmas money! i have been loving black and white lately – specifically together rather than separately – and i would love to bring more of it into my home. i just find myself drawn to it in the same way as my favourite colours (turquoise and pink) and i love that it’s so versatile.
