I was really excited when I saw the muted pastel tones within the John Lewis Natural Texture Edit collection.
They were all my favourites, from duck egg blue to dusky pinks and minty greens. Inspired by the colours, and after a not so small shopping trip, I decided to style up a further curated collection at home.
That Duck egg Bronte by Moon Herringbone throw is so soft, and such a sweet contrast against my pink Ercol chair.
I also love how the pink tones on the Southwold cushion is accentuated by the chair.
After all, they look great together as a pair. Loving the artwork on them too. Impressionism is the new bold painterly strokes of last season.
Here’s all my favourite colours together on my mint Designer’s Guild sofa.
‘Always do what you are afraid to do’, a saying after my own heart. This beautiful inspirational card (and many more in the photos below), was a lovely gift from Eva Jorgensen, owner of Sycamore Street press.
This Frankie oak task lamp, also from John Lewis, got my vote because it exuded a relaxed vibe that paired perfectly with pastels, such as this pale blue Croft pen pot.
I have converted this putty coloured Croft mug into a plant pot and love how the introduction of a very neutral tone with foliage is able to further soften the look of pastels.
What do you think of Honore de Balzac’s quote?
Did you spot my new mug stand? It was the Teal that did it for me.
The beautiful box of succulents were specially created for me by the talented Ian Drummond of Indoor Garden Design.
I have styled my plants with this tall green crackled pitcher vase which reminded me of sunny Thailand. I remembered buying Celadon pieces from Chiang Mai many years ago and this vase brought back happy holiday memories.
Those who follow me on Instagram, know that there is always a party in the Little Big Bell household. So when I saw the Croft collection Arundel pinch pot paddle tray, I instantly knew what I was going to use them for.
Sprinkles and toppings came to mind. Perfect for a make your own cupcake or ice-cream topping party.
Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.
