Moving House… Interior Inspiration

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has enjoyed the festive season. I have had a pretty hectic start to the year, but I am looking forward to 2012 and the changes it will bring. In just a couple of weeks we will be leaving our tiny loft apartment and moving to our new house. We’ll have a garden, and I will have studio to fill with beautiful fabric and make dresses in. ♥ I feel very lucky. Tomorrow I will start packing (a daunting task for a hoarder & collector, I have *so* much stuff), so tonight I have been looking at some inspiring photos and formulating some ideas which will give me something to look forward to once the packing, sorting, moving and cleaning are done! I thought I’d share some of my favourites here.


A (former) Bookseller’s nightmare… but it’s so pretty. ♥ I have a bit of an obsession with arranging things in rainbow order.

My creative space

My fabric buffet

Jenny B‘s epic sewing room. I especially love the dresser and the blue walls.

trims & ribbons

Love the jars of trim!

Just Looking Pretty (Mooi Plaatje)

I picked up a battered wooden storage box with compartments like this a little while ago. I think I will paint it and fill it with tiny pretty things.

Pink Cabinet - Drawers

Such a great way to store fabric! I can’t imagine mine ever staying this neat and tidy though. More rainbow coloured organisation. ^_^

My room

Leo‘s wonderful doll shelves

kitchen shelf

Toys & Teacups ♥

Tea Room

This reminds me of the Alice in Wonderland restaurant in Tokyo. ♥

Old Skool

Vintage phone love ♥


CandyPop‘s vintage glasses. I can’t wait to display mine. I have vintage Babycham glasses and shot glasses handed down from my grandmother and great-grandmother.

How awesome is this kettle?!

That’s it for now… I could go on forever! But I’d better get some packing done first.
