First off, I’d like to send heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported Grace
and I’s #wearefamily 2014 project
to raise equality awareness. The positive and engaged response has been overwhelming; reading the family stories from people across the world just shows how beautifully diverse our planet is. I’ve had a super busy week with back-to-back meetings and events, so I’m excited that my friend Brooke
is coming to visit from NYC this weekend. In honour of the visit I thought it would be fun to create a cosy little living room nook inspired by one of my favourite spots in her city – Central Park.
When I was in New York City for business a few weeks ago I made sure to take a trip into Central Park at least once a day. Whether it was for a quick stroll with my morning coffee or an evening run with my heart mate around the reservoir, it was so nice to take in the beautiful autumnal views
at every turn.
I knew that the gorgeous blue skies of this Central Park scene would be perfect for pairing with the new colour scheme in my living room
, so I decided to pull together other shades from the blue colour family to complete the look. I was keen to invite both the colours and textures of that Central Park moment into the living room. Having laid Quick Step’s Bleached White Teak flooring
when I first moved into the property, I already had a gorgeous white base onto which I could layer in my favourite colours! The Buxton table lamp
was the perfect hero piece because it was not only a nod to the colours of the autumnal scene, but also the reflective finish was a nod to the mirror-like lake, too. I needed a classic, simple side table to anchor these new elements – the clean lines and stylish simplicity of the Miami occasional table
were perfect for this.
The addition of these two Tesco
pieces has really helped to pull the space together. Not only are the designs ideal in terms of shape, colour and size, but they reflect my personal colour inspirations from the natural environment. Anyone who has read the Bright.Bazaar book
will now how much I’m a champion for discovering decor inspiration on your travels! What do you think of my living room updates? How would you use these pieces in your home?
