Home Style Snapshots

Lac curtains + Brixton hat + Birdcage

While the big storm hit New Zealand today, I took the chance to take a few snap shots of our new home. At some point I will go through each room showing the before and after snaps… but for now I hope you enjoy checking out this little update =)

DSW Chairs + Sunflowers + Lace Curtains + Industrial Lighting Sunflowers

I absolutely LOVE DCW chairs so we paired them with our oak dining table. We also decided to add white industrial lighting to the dining/kitchen area. Styled with my faaaaave – sunflowers!

Mustard candles + lace curtains + Plants DIY Gold Towel Hooks

We wanted to have a wee bit of fun in the bathroom as the rest of the house has a lot of black & white. We used turquoise & gold to highlight a few features – above are some towel hooks which I found at the dump and spray painted gold. Spray painting old pieces is SUCH an amazing way to transform them.

DIY macrame planter Turquoise + Gold Bathroom Gold Frame + Wall Drawing by Bec Brown 1 Gold Frame + Wall Drawing by Bec Brown

I also tested out some macrame today – which ill share on the blog properly soon.
The other DIY I did in the bathroom is the artwork above. For this I drew straight onto the wall and spray painted an old gilt frame found at the dump. Cool huh? Its funny how drawing on the wall feels so…naughty! I guess thats from childhood (haha).
I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out this wee update. Mum and I are having soooo much fun doing up this house – a project we have always wanted to achieve together! xobec

DIY: Hand stamped cushions

Today the very talented Alana from The Little Leaf blog and I are teaming together on a home DIY- cushion revamping! We wanted to use bought cushions and revamp them for our homes. I loooved making my recent Clouds of Colour stamp so made some more smaller stamps for this project too. These are so easy to make and a great idea for cheap prezzies.
I used an old piece of eraser and using a sharp craft knife, cut out my design. Make sure you have a stamp pad that will stay on fabric. The cushions I chose already had a pattern so I used these as a guideline for getting my rows of stars and hearts. I love mixing texture and pattern in your living room and these add a nice fresh burst! Make sure you head over to Alana’s blog for her sweet cushion idea! xo Bec
