love the idea, but I'd want quite a "simple" area around it so not to clutter

I can only handle the super pale pink. That said, our bedroom is super super pale and every night when I go to bed, I consider repainting or death.

love seeing creative ways of displaying plants... a few thrifted suitcases would make fantastic 'pots' for a small balcony in the city..

Something less desirable (like a uni essay, family phone call, client work...) that needs to be done... Cleaning is the ultimate task in the art or procrastination! Well... that and the knowledge that when it's finished, I can relax in a clean and lovely smelling home...

I'd be pumping the neutrals with those walls. Any more colours and I'd have an epileptic fit.

I can't handle it. Ceiling same colour as walls? Not ok. you need some contrast and some light.


Matching Ceiling Paint: Design Do or Don't?

hells to the no. I want to enjoy the garden and the outdoors and when I'm inside, even at night, need the outdoor connection. And really, it looks like a car park. I could not happily drive up to my house after work, instead I'd think, "oh that's right, the world is ending"

Paint. If you are even asking the question, it means the wood is less than impressive. Paint, paint, paint!

love the warmth the soft lighting brings. Also adore the knobs on the drawers and doors- details like that are what really make homes personal

I'm a big fan of the messy-but practical garden. Living in the driest state in the driest continent (Australia) I'm also big on drought tolerant, hardy plants. I envy the English cottage garden, but I'm finding some beautiful plants that do really well in my neglectful hands!
