dominoes cushion / ‘dalmatian’ trinket box/ kono lamp / vintage swedish vase / 50’s wall clock/ retro mint vase

do you ever put together wishlists and not realise until after that everything you’ve chosen fits within the same colour scheme? that totally happened here. but turquoise and yellow are two of my favourite colours, so i feel naturally drawn to them. black and white are always a winner in my book, too. i must admit i’m surprised there’s no pink in there.

i don’t have a studio space to travel to, or even room for a proper desk space, so much of my work (both illustrating and blogging) gets done in my bedroom/the front room uncomfortably perched on my bed.

until now, that is. for the longest time we’ve wanted to take the bed out of that room and put a sofa or some form of seating in there instead. the sofa in the living room that the landlord provided is a monstrosity, and whilst comfortable, is pretty damn ugly.

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.

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?
