10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend

1. I loved going for a walk in the countryside in my new green chinos on the first sunny day in weeks.
2. The latest issue of The Simple Things magazine dropped onto my doormat on Saturday morning – check out the colourful cover!
3. The England countryside never fails to impress me with its beauty.
4. I love being inspired by colour when I least expect it, just like the yellow and blue hues of this weathered door.
5. I think I might have to get some neon gift tags to stock up my stationery cupboard.
6. Although there’s about a billion steps, I really enjoyed making croissants from scratch for the first time. (I’ve wanted to do this ever since I saw Meryl Streep make them in It’s Complicated!)
7. Don’t you think this Rise & Shine print is perfect for spring?
8. Copper is enjoying an en vogue season right now; this disk pendant from Michele Varian is divine.
9. This arrows cushion has colour and charm written all over it.
10. I just can’t get enough of 50s-inspired pieces at the moment, including this turquoise couch from Sentou.

@Meghan – Thank you! I had my fiancé to help me, so even though there were lots of steps having two pairs of hands helped a lot! x

Oh my, Will! Those croissants look perfect! Good job :)

I’m so on board with the copper trend, I love the “soft” quality of this metal and that lamp is a great choice.

And Sentou is really fun! Thanks for the intro.

@Holly – I was introduced to Sentou at Maison et Objet this year and I’ve been hooked ever since! x

I have totally been eying that sofa! They had a coordinating chair and I have been searching Denmark for it because the shop that did carry it sold out.
