Free Downloads {Part 2}

The September issue of Ideal Home comes out this week, so I can finally share some of the things I’ve been working on recently. Firstly I’ve been excited to tell you about another fantastic {even if I do say so myself!} download for these cute little prints, that you then finish off yourself by attaching little buttons to {owls and buttons does it get any better?!} Download them here and check out the issue for more button ideas {such a fun project – loved coming up with the ideas and designs for this one}

We also show you how to get pretty modern country style {I’m getting really into accents of red again at the moment}
And finally the mammouth shoot I mentioned a few months back was for Ideal Homes guide to features walls, I won’t lie to you it was a huge task with 10 room sets shot over 3 days but the hopefully it’s been well worth it


Pheewww no wonder I feel so exhausted! {See Part 1 here!}

    I love the feature wall – yellow and grey – shelving pic. I have box shelves just like that, ditto in fact, and I love the way you’ve broken the background of the “boxes” up – is that just different wallpaper? interesting, and v.stylish.

      Thanks for the lovely comments. I just used off cuts of different wallpapers in in the same shade so the display shelves stand out from the storage ones. It’s really easy to do and rather than just papering the back of the box you paper all of the sides so it frames the objects inside x

    Clever! Unfortunately though my set of shelves -very similar – but they aren’t closed off at the back – ie you can see the wall through them. Hmm. Could this be rectified by papering a square piece of something firm cut to fix and then attaching it to the back, do you think?
