My pink evil eye charm to scare away all things spooky on Halloween.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I’ve been busy styling rooms and doing photoshoots.

I haven’t re-styled my upstairs workspace for a while, so I thought it was the perfect time to change a few things around, and add a few new pieces.

Can you spot them? (the title gives it away doesn’t it?) One of my absolute favourite new additions is that pink, gold and turquoise evil eye charm in the centre of the wall.

Isn’t it beautiful? It was kindly sent to me by Umasqu.

It’s made of American walnut, Veneer and MDF, with a wide variety of colours to pick from. evil eye charm Call me superstitious, but I totally believe in the power of the Evil eye charm.

Of course, it could all be a coincidence, but I will forever associate good and protection with this charm. evil eye charm Most evil eye charms are in the traditional blue, white and black.

I think Tzachi Nevo, the designer and founder behind Umasqu has definitely hit the jackpot with this idea of beautifully designed evil eyes as home decor.

Umasqu do lots of different wall wooden decor too, so do check them out. We all need an evil eye charm in our homes don’t we?

In fact, I will be giving one away on Halloween.

Keep an eye on my instagram for that day. Maybe together we will deflect all things spooky on October 31st right? Anyway, back to new things in my workspace. Did you spot my 2 new art prints?

That gorgeous Liberte, egalite and Sorite art print is from the lovely Stacey at Black and Beech. I love the inspirational saying and the colour palette is just perfect for my wall.

The print just above it is called Bloom by Particular People. It reminds me of a fairy ( another good sign, in my eyes) and I love the pastel pink and olive green hue. I also have a larger version, which you will be seeing soon in a new styling at home. Finally, did you spot the new Geometric Emerald carpet from my friend Lorena Canals? I absolutely adore her collection of machine washable rugs, and even better sales contribute to her Sakula school project in India for poor and deprived children.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my little home updates.

Don’t forget about the instagram giveaway on Halloween to win a Umasqu evil eye.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.

My sheepskin Baa stool and the pink and red trend.

This weekend, I had so much fun styling my room in pink. Here is the result.

Do you spot my pink sheepskin footstool? Her name is Judy, and she was the inspiration of my styling. baa stool Judy is from Baa stool, an amazing online store, based in Wales, that sells a range of luxury British sheepskin furniture and accessories.

Isn’t she cute in baby pink with gold hairpin legs?

The cover is removable, so you can change the look of your stool with replacement sheepskin covers. Sheepskin stools are definitely a huge trend this season, especially on Instagram.

Not only does the stool look aesthetically gorgeous, it is super soft to the touch too. Every time my husband walked into the room this weekend, he saw me stroking my baa stool.

I couldn’t help it, as it was so soft. I can guarantee that you will be doing the same thing if you got one too.

You can also keep your baa stool looking tip top with a special metal brush that’s included. There are 26 styles of sheepskin footstools to suit all taste. Each style is available in 17 colours, from Ivory, Chocolate, Baby Pink, Cornflower blue and more. What colour would you pick? The stools also come in a variety of heights, and you can select according to whether you are a ‘feet up’ or ‘feet down’ person.

After a hard and long day of running around in the hospital as a doctor, I naturally want to put my feet up when I get home. I was so pleased that my Judy Baa stool was a ‘feet up’ stool. Anyway, back to the styling. As I mentioned previously my Judy Baa stool inspired my decor. I decided to go for a decor in shades of pink.

I’ve also got a crush on pink and red at the moment. This is another big trend for 2018.

Many people think red and pink clash, but as far as I’m concern, there are no such things as clashing colours. The secret is in getting the dose of those clashing colours right. As you can see, I have a new red and pink gallery wall for my styling.

I was very fortunate to have being able to collaborate with a group of talented printmakers. The last three prints on the bottom row were specially made for me to colour specifications.

If you are interested in the prints, then here are the makers :

  1. Yass Queen by The Gin Fox.
  2. Dusk (pink abstract) by Jessica Ford art
  3. Two hearts by Gayle Mansfield
  4. Rainbow art print that reads ‘ You are every nice word’ by Stacie Swift.
  5. Pink female print by Lena Goodison.
  6. Pink and red LHR baggage tag print by Offizina.
  7. ‘The bags under my  eyes are Chanel’ print by The Happy Cotswold Co.
  8. Blah by Little Dog Studio shop.

My daughter is already eyeing my stool for her room.

It was so cosy to put my feet up this weekend, since it was snowing outdoors. Here’s wishing for Spring soon.

I forgot to mention that sheepskin regulates temperature well. It keeps your feet warm in Winter and cool in Summer. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post and styling.

Wll you embrace the sheepskin stool and the pink red trend? I’m loving it. Do take a look here at Baa stools.

Wishing you all a wonderful start to your weeks.
