It seems that the beginning of a new year has done wonderful things for my little creative soul. Over the past two weeks my notebooks have been brimming with ideas and my iPhone quickly filling with photos. I decided I wanted to begin the year with a creative challenge, just for myself, to begin playing again with colour, texture and design and liberate some of the ideas I'd been dreaming up. Serendipitously I stumbled across The 7 Vignettes Challenge on Instagram, created the fabulous Jen from The Interiors Addict, I knew it would be the perfect little kick start I needed. As we are currently in between homes, a great deal of my usual styling bits and bobs are packed away in storage, which at first was a little daunting, but it soon became quite a liberating experience, allowing me to really consider the story behind each vignette.
So here are my seven vignettes..
Day One - Nature. Inspired by a few collected bits and pieces from my travels.
Day Two - Colour. Atomic inspired.. featuring retro wallpaper, globe and Melmac teacups.
Day Three - Fun. Inspired by a childhood memory of learning to knit with my grandmother and featuring her retro needle case.
Day Four - Flowers. Inspired by a Summer rose garden tea party.
Day Five- Mementos. A few of my favourites from my 2011 trip of New York.
Day Six - Side Table. Inspired by Amanda Talbot, a gorgeous little corner of the garden and our 2013 vision board.
I had so much fun putting each vignette together and seeing everyone else's inspired styling and I'm so excited that Jen will be hosting the next 7 Vignettes in the first week of February. Check out her blog for more details if you would like to join in the fun.
Wishing you a most creative Monday!
