What inspired me this week: simplicity, texture and botanical wall art

Autumn is here and it seems everyone has got the de-clutter and home-making bug. Have you noticed? It is obviously time to get cosy inside again. I love looking at interiors that make me feel calm, such as this gorgeous room by Australian designers Doherty Design Studio in Melbourne. Beautiful textures, monochrome palette and timeless furniture create a peaceful space. Botanical wall art and house plants are also key ingredients.

I love how the mustard colour is repeated in the picture. And a fiddle leaf fig tree is always a winner.

These pictures are taken in my own home. The pottery is part of the stock I am gathering for my upcoming pop-up store Vintage Haus. This is a Scottish pottery jug and a coffee pot in one of my favourite midcentury designs ‘Chevron’ by Denby. I still need to find more things to add to the shop collection, but it is a nice start.

Botanics are very much on trend right now and as I love a bit of green, I created a little corner with a print and a vintage globe. I found this piece of botanical wall art on canvas in a home decor boutique in the Netherlands recently.

Our bedroom has an ever growing gallery wall. Blue is a great calming colour for the bedroom, so I try to stick to that with the artworks, which are a mix of cheap carboot sale finds, photographs and an abstract acrylic painting I made myself.
