Monday Mix Up | Currently Loving


I'm Kicking off the week with some current loves, a few of which are right here at home. There were a couple of books on my wishlist, which I included in this String Shelf Styling post including Kate, the Kate Moss book and The Fashion Book Mini Edition. Having now acquired both, I'm a very happy girl. I love displaying beautiful books around the home, and these are just two of many that I would like, but it's a good start. Next on the list are some fabulous interior books! 

Neither of these new books were actually on the String Shelf when I took these photos, but I love that I can move them around from room to room as I please. Kate is proudly displayed on the coffee table here, alongside a black felt garland from Jamie Kay.

I had planned on putting the garland in my office or eventually in one of the boys' rooms, which I'm currently decorating, but for now it's residing on the Muuto Dots. I think it looks pretty cute, don't you?

I finally bought the set of Hay Boxes I'd been hankering for. They were included many months ago in my Home Build | Workspace Wishlist. Comprising of a set of seven boxes in varying sizes and colours, they match our colour palette perfectly and are so handy for storing bits and pieces.

There are four on the String shelf including two large grey ones (one is hidden from view behind the sofa) and these two favourites...

The other three are on my office desk alongside the other new book I mentioned earlier.  

I've curated a couple of moodboards recently, which mostly came as a result of browsing my Pinterest boards and feeling so inspired by everything I've pinned!

A visual feast of beautiful spaces, gorgeous interior styling, covetable homewares and cool fashion finds, I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.

Not a bad way to ease into the working week! Have a great day!

    The alphabet poster... LOVE. Can I ask where it's from? It seems like a mix of ancient symbols. Possibly custom?

    1. Sure! It is by RK Design, available to puchase here:
      Mine is 50cm x 70cm, which fits perfectly into an IKEA Ribba Frame
