Hello Monday!

Spring has arrived here in Sydney and we are about to be hit with some very warm temperatures this week. This is such a nice time of the year here; native flowers are blooming everywhere and it’s often a really comfortable temperature (before those scorcher days later in the year). What’s not to like?

I started my week with reorganising this little corner. The shelf is certainly not the prettiest, and I might move it out on the balcony for summer, but for now it hosts some of my favourite pieces I use almost daily. This year I’ve shifted more and more towards (or should I say, shifted back to) natural elements in our home; think linen and organic cotton, some random branches and dried leafage instead of flowers and green plants, rough handmade ceramics with some baskets thrown in for good measure.

I mentioned Anno in my recent post. Their new collection is absolutely spot on with what I’m loving at the moment and this rug is no exception. It’s so soft (my daughter loves just sitting on it browsing her books) and although I think it will look perfect with what my home is looking like this summer, I have no doubt it will transform with the new season as well. In addition, the texture of this rug adds a nice warmth to a room. I really love it.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead and stay tuned for more soon!

PS. This lovely rug was gifted me by Anno with no strings attached. As always, all opinions are my own.

Weekend Mood

It’s Father’s Day weekend here in Australia and whilst we haven’t planned anything special, it’s nice to just spend some time with the family. I have had a busy couple of weeks at work, so I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend! I have new books to read and plenty of green tea on hand.

I rearranged our bedroom a bit today to make room for the beautiful Anno bedspread and rug (which I will share photos of soon!) I absolutely love this Finnish brand; their mission of creating products that feel good to live with, and their use of natural materials is right up my alley.

This beautiful bedspread is lightweight and soft and has a lovely texture that adds a layered feel without looking cluttered. Needless to say the Sand colour fits perfectly in our grey and beige colour scheme.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!
