Casual Living

If you’re like me you’ll probably think of your home as a sanctuary from the world; a place where you can shut off and relax. Casual Living is the latest offering from best-selling author and interiors expert Judith Wilson, and provides ideas for two key looks around this idea – Country Casual and City Casual. The books details the different ingredients you need to create a relaxed and comfortable look for your home, before going onto show you how they translate into rooms throughout the house. I’ve picked out some of my favourite looks and spaces from the book – which space calls out the most to you?

    The open shelving look is beautiful! I have a problem with collecting a lot of decor items that need to displayed, this is a perfect solution!

    although the idea of a blackboard wall sounds slightly messy to me…i love that image/space because it strikes me as belonging to a person who is always very inspired (and thats someone i want to be!)

    I really do like your book recommendations…even though you're costing me a fortune and I'm running out of shelf space!
