Amber Lewis

Happy Monday to you all. Another fun filled weekend. I am loving this warmer weather that's for sure. Bring on Summer.  (I wrote this out yesterday when the sun shining down, today, a different story)   


 





So I kid you not, I actually said WOW out loud when I saw this home. Everything about it is amazing. I am such a fan of interior designer Amber Lewis. She has incredible style and an amazing eye when it comes to putting things together.
 
Quick post for now. Checking back in later.
 
Happy Monday.

My own living room moodboard

 
I have been umming and ahhing over my living room for a while now. I am looking into purchasing a new rug along with some new art work. I had all the ideas in my head, I just couldn't quite get it all sorted. This is where I called in the expert. The lovely Annique of Gezellig Interiors put together a mood board for me and boy do I love it. Such a talent! So fantastic to see it all come together. I highly recommend Annique if you are unsure about a couple of things.

Mini Grandi Artist




I have always watched the work from my friend Sophie of Mini Grandi Artist with great interest. What I love the most is that her works are inspired by nature and the environment, such as the mountains, lakes and beaches that surround Sophies home.  These new pieces are right up my alley, each telling a story of their own,

Lighting with Freedom Furniture




Over the next several months, I will be looking to change the lighting over our breakfast bar. Lighting is the key to adding that wow factor to a room. Unfortunatel,y all of the lights in our house are fitted flat into the ceiling, hence the reason I am looking to change.



Luckily for me, Freedom Furniture has the latest lighting trends covered. With a range of features from copper fittings, through to matt finishes, Freedom allows you to define your particular style and display your signature look.

Monday mix up

Happy Monday to you all. Apologies for my absence of late. We have just spent a few days away with friends at the beach which was just what the doctor ordered, however I cant quite shale off a hangover like I used to. I wanted to kick off this week with a couple of things. 






First up is the work of the very talented, very clever Nina Holst of Stylizimo. Hailing from Norway, Nina is a talented and well known blogger and artist whom I have long admired. She does monochrome to perfection and is extremely handy with her camera.



Next up are these gorgeous cushions from Dunedins latest home ware store Vull Design. Designed in Melbourne by Art Club Concept these cushions are edgy and on trend. 





Lastly a summer essential. A bit of Juliette Hogan which I am mad about. Easy to wear, super stylee and a must have in every wardrobe. 

Happy week.

FohFum

I am always on the hunt for simple, well made contemporary nursery furniture that will last the distant and look the part. Hence the reason I am drawn to FohFum and even more so being made here in New Zealand.




Big on safety and ensuring that everyone gets a good night sleep, FohFum focus on baby sleeping soundly and parents resting easy in the choices that they have made.

Blog Contributor - The Urban Hunter finds

Throughout our house we have rimu flooring, no carpet anywhere. So now my second son is on the move I began rug searching for his room. I was so excited to discover Nodi Rugs. What I love about these New Zealand designed rugs is they are made to order. You know you are paying for quality when each rug is hand made on a loom in India using traditional weaving techniques. Using a combination of cotton, jute and banana silk yarns these rugs will instantly add textured luxury to any room.

Is it just me, or is cauliflower everywhere these days? When I was younger it used to sit at the top of my list of "Things Jemima Will Not Eat", along with brussels sprouts and rhubarb. I'm happy to say that in the twenty odd years since, I've now come around to the deliciousness that is cauliflower (and rhubarb, although brussels spouts are still disgusting).

This weeks recipe is from Erin Made This, a rather scrumptious little blog and truly worth a visit. It combines my new BFF roasted cauliflower with yummy lebanese lentils, topped with a drizzly citrusy dressing. Yum.

Enjoy! x

Concrete is very in vogue at the moment. Pairing this with leather marries the perfect textures together into a small jar that could be used to house any of your small items.  Available online through Mint Six, this is the perfect industrial piece to curb your concrete cravings.
