Spring interiors Spring interiors 2018 with A by Amara’s Arcade collection.

It was such a pleasure last week to announce my brand ambassadorship with Amara, for their A by Amara Arcade range.

Since then, I’ve been busy styling my workspace and living room with this beautiful new collection.

I thought I’d show you how I’ve used a few of the colourful pieces at my desk. How do you like it? Spring Interiors I absolutely adore pink, so it’s probably no surprise that I’ve selected this Arcade fuchsia vase called Stardust. Isn’t it pretty?

Since I wanted a Spring interiors style, I decided to add a selection of pretty floral blooms into the vase. Next to my Stardust vase, is Circus, a monochrome black and white striped vase with a touch of gold. It’s such an elegant piece and would look great with all interiors styles.

I’ve decided to decorate it with a few sprigs of Eucalyptus. You could of course use colourful flowers, but I love how the green looks against the black and white. Next, is the Jamboree orange diamond weave pot, which I have used as a container for my colour pencils. The pot is perfect for little succulents and cacti too and also comes in a blue colour.

The vibrant orange and geometric patterns on that Jamboree weave pot really reminds me of the decor style of a mid century modern home in Palm Springs.

If you are unsure what I mean, here is a colourful post on Palm Springs I did a while back which may help explain.

The gold elephant trinket dish is also part of the Arcade collection. Isn’t it so cute?

I’ve used it to store my paper clips. So, what do you think of this bright new collection? I think it’s the perfect antidote to any lingering Winter blues or grey skies.

I have more Spring interiors posts coming up using the Arcade range ( the pink cushion on the chair above is a little hint of what’s next to come).

I’m really looking forward to showing it to you soon.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this colourful post. Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.

Pink and gold chair St Tropez from Calligaris.

Pink is my all time favourite colour and even better when combined with gold.

Such was my passion for those colours, that I created a pink and gold board on Pinterest 4 years ago. When Calligaris asked me to get involve in their #FrameMySaintTropez campaign that celebrated their latest range of Saint Tropez chairs, I accepted instantly when I saw the pink and gold chair. For those of you who are new to the brand Calligaris, it’s a renowned Italian furniture store since 1923, who started off producing small batch artisanal chairs. Fast forward to the present, Calligaris is now part owned by the luxury giant LVMH ( Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy ).

It’s now one of the market leaders in the furniture industry, distributing to over 90 countries worldwide. I’m already a proud owner of 2 Calligaris chairs and I’m so pleased to add this to my collection. As you can see, I’ve placed my new prized pink and gold chair in my very pastel workspace. Don’t you think my Saint Tropez chair looks right at home in this space?

You’ll notice that the chair is a cohesive element that binds all the pink together. If you love my pink and gold chair then you may be in for a chance to win one, as I will be doing an Instagram giveaway on Monday 27th November. Tune in to my Instagram then to participate. Fingers crossed.

It’s Friday today, so wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Hope you will all be doing something lovely. I will be back soon with some festive Christmas posts. Looking forward to sharing them.
