ONE OF my favourite decorating blogs is The Lettered Cottage. Layla Palmer and her husband Kevin are slowing fixing up their old home and with a bit of new paint, artful display, and flea market finds, it is shaping up to be a such a beautiful space.
Who wouldn't want to curl up with a good book in this little reading room? The wide horizontal stripes help the room to appear wider than it is. I love the old baskets and the grouping of vintage art and mirrors.
This kitchen used to have ebony painted cupboards but by painting the uppers and lowers in two different soft shades, it has been transformed into a pretty light-filled room. Love the old wooden boxes hung on the wall.
The mix of patterns on this bed make it so inviting and I love the seaside touches with the antique oar above the window and the little sailboat on the nightstand.
Another blog I love is Lola B's. Kasey has a beautiful way of combining styles to make a gorgeous interior. This room from her home has such a mix of styles - the white slipcover, the ornate settee, the rustic bench as a coffee table and the industrial feel of the side table. But the gorgeous soft colour scheme marries everything together.
