I am thrilled to finally show you James’s nursery!

This blog post HAD to happen. Why? Because there were signs. First there was the mention of Hygge on Weeds, which I started watching a few weeks ago. Then there was a random post about the Hygge Manifesto on one of my favourite blogs. And of course before all this, I heard of the Hugå Studio opening in Nicosia.
This summer, we’ve been spending most of our time at home, entertaining friends and family and of course a newborn. While we’re lucky to have a home with a garden and a patio, said patio needs some serious summer lovin’.
I’ve found ways to spruce it up, on a budget and with little maintenance. I love the idea of plenty of colourful throws and cushions, various lanterns, fairy lights and potted plants, rugs and wall decor pieces too. Here’s what inspired me:
I have some basic ideas about how I want to arrange this year’s Christmas table. They all consist of simple, effective and practical details. There will be quite a few of us so I’ll want to save on table space but if you’re having a small gathering by all means go all out and fill that baby up with candles, vases of flowers and twigs and other decorative pieces! Take a look at the pictures that are inspiring me and whatever you do don’t forget about the kids! I can’t wait for Georgie and his cousins to see their little table setup, inspired by the last picture.
Our day was nearing the end and I had been toying with the idea of splat painting since the morning. I decided our cold concrete garden wall was in need of colour so Georgie and I headed out, armed with paints, soft balls and a roll of paper. Warning: this is extremely messy. It involves paint. Splatting. If you are game anyway, of course you don’t need a concrete wall to begin. Tape some paper on the wall or hang a big piece of cloth that needs cheering up. The end result is so good and it was fun for both of us. I think we’ll be doing it again soon but this time with another batch of colours.
