I’ve been on the hunt for hallway lights for a while.

I wanted something understated yet elegant, and of course with that pop of colour.

I’ve always been a fan of Curiousa & Curiousa’s hand blown glass lights, so I was beyond excited to get some made for my hallway.

I’ve chosen Curiousa & Curiousa’s Oshka lights for their pretty silhouettes inspired by Russian Matryoshka dolls.

There were 23 glass colours and 8 different flex colours to select from. hallway light ideas I’ve picked a large Oshka in teal and ruby. and a medium one in citron and Turkish blue. hand blown glass hallway light This citron and Turkish blue Oshka light looks great against the pale pink of my wall.

The colours harmonise so well together don’t you think? The colours were selected to match my new hallway wallpaper. I love how the ruby of my large Oshka light adds drama to the hallway.

Even better, at night when turned on, it gives off a warm red glow, like sitting by a fireplace on a cold Winter’s night. hallway lights from Curiousa and Curiousa If you stand at my door entryway, you can see both lights greeting you as you come in, adding pops of colourful happiness to the space. Incidentally, Curiousa & Curiousa have released a new light collection recently that comprise of sculptural layers of hand blown glass with walnut wood, and are inspired by American totem poles.

You can see them above, aren’t they so pretty? Anyway, hope this post has given you some inspiration on how to add more pops of colours in the hallway.

I’m so pleased with my Curiousa & Curiousa lights. They have really added that finishing touch to my hallway revamp. I’d love to know what you think.

Finally, wishing you all a wonderful start to your week.

decorate a christmas table This post is about how to decorate a Christmas table with pastel colours.

Yes you read it rightly.

It may only be October, and whilst everyone is preparing for Halloween, I’ve decided to work on my Christmas table.

Better be prepared than never right?

I’ve gone for a fun Glamour look, filled with pastel colours.

I found some amazing pieces from Littlewoods online to help me create this look. decorate a christmas table Firstly, I wanted a dinner set that looked elegant and festive, but could later reuse for other occasions.

This 18 piece gold band dinner set by Waterside from Littlewoods online fitted the bill.  The white of the plates were a perfect blank canvas to style against.

White is good, because it’s an easy backdrop if you are using a variety of colours or different themes.

The gold rims give the table a festive glamour feel.

I’ve enhanced the place settings with patterned pink napkins, baubles, crackers and gold cutlery. These pastel coloured Polka wine glasses by LSA International, also from Littlewoods online, really add that pop of pastel and fun to the table.

The glasses come in a set of 4 with pink, yellow, blue and mint. Here’s my other favourite find, iridescent baubles from Littlewoods online.

I’ve suspended them from the chandelier to create a festive snowdrops effect. Finally, here’s my fireplace painted in Graham and Brown’s Penelope eggshell paint.

I just adore that shade of pink. Do you like it?

I’ve adorned my fireplace with a pretty Silver grey and white berry garland, also from Littlewoods online.

That silvery grey is absolutely gorgeous, and really makes it look like a frosty Wintery day, but thank goodness without the cold.

I’ve suspended some baubles from the garland to add colour. decorate a christmas table So here it is, my Christmas dining table with the suspended baubles and garland.

Incidentally, if you are wondering about the other decor, the 3 colour circle wall mirror and Pink tassel floor lamp are also from Littlewoods online.

I think you now know where I like to shop. Hope you’ve enjoyed the simple tips on how to decorate a Christmas table. It really was so easy to do.

If you want to create the same, without the stress of thinking up a scheme this Christmas, then do shop my finds from Littlewoods online.

I will be back soon with more festive posts. Now that I’ve started, there’s no stopping.

Have a lovely day all. x

Decorating with colour is a way to defy the gloom and bring happiness into your interior home space.

The U.K at the moment is under a grey cloud, with the Brexit conflict and torrential rains.

I have decided to give my ever evolving workspace a makeover (above). Decorating with colour I was really thrilled to discover the Nidi brand via Nubie.

Nubie is an online web shop selling the most beautiful baby and children home interior furniture and decor.

As you know, I love decorating with colours. In fact, I think children brands do the latter really well.

I’ve been in need of a new desk for this space for a while.

This is Nidi’s Luce desk and pill chair which I got via Nubie. What I love about this desk, is that you can custom design it to the size and colour you desire from their options.

I opted for this yellow camomilia and kept the frame white, but couldn’t resist pale pink for the drawer. Decorating with colour The shelf on the desk is not from Nubie, but one that I got custom made.

To complete the look of the space, I’ve decorated the wall with some new artwork.

The beautiful large pastel coloured abstract art prints are by Inaluxe, all from King and Mc Gaw. The art prints from left to right, are Garden Party, Odyssey and Shindig. Decorating with colour The smaller art prints are by Hello Pea and me. All the colours here go so well together. Here, I’ve added more art prints. I think I shall fill this whole wall soon. Looking forward to showing it to you at a later date.

Have a wonderful week all and hope this decorating with colour post has sparked some sunshine and happiness where you are.
