I’ve had such a lovely week with you guys; I’ve been lucky enough to welcome new followers and to keep seeing some super friendly regular faces, for which I am very grateful. If you’re new to this little blog, then you can find out more about me and ‘My Stuff’ in my guest post on A Diary of Lovely earlier in the week. Whatever you get up to this weekend, friends, I hope it’s full of fun and bursting with happiness for you. x

After all the lovely comments about my multi coloured striped armchair earlier in the week, I thought it would be fun to finish the week off with a multi coloured cocktail extravaganza! Not only have we seen Miss. Bradshaw embrace the style in her old apartment, but also this has to be one of the easiest ways to add a confident punch of colour to a scheme. There’s no need to paint or wallpaper, rather, pick up a statement accessory in your favourite multi colourway and you’ve got yourself a fun and playful space in an instant. Just check this look out in action below; the upholstered sofa and rug complete each space without anything extraordinary going in the rest of the room’s decor. I’d like to add some more of this style to my apartment with that Jonathan Alder ‘Ties’ cushion. Do you have any multi coloured accessories? How would you use this colour cocktail in a decor scheme?

I love me a good loft. Remember this? Yeah, I’m still dreaming of it on average 3 hours per day. So, I thought I’d try and get my loft-like, exposed brick walls crush outta my system with a nice round up of them working their rustic charm. First up, there’s this amazing loft entrance (1) where the deliciously masculine garage-style doors are framed by battered bricks. Onto bedroom spaces (2, 4) where I think the look kinda works, but not as well as it does in open plan living/dining areas. If I had to pick my favourites, I’d clearly go for that entryway, and if I was being greedy I might have to bag the home office (6) and the kitchen (11) looks, too! That kitchen shot, by the way, is from the Clinton Street Bakery in NYC – isn’t it a treat? It’s on my places to visit next time I’m in town, and not just for the decor – The New York Times Magazine voted their blueberry pancakes the best in the city…twice! So, do you like exposed brick walls? And do you have a favourite way to decorate with them?
