There's nothing like cosy evening on the sofa after a wild night out!!! I'll be binge watching @poseonfx for a hefty dose of ballroom realness. I will, of course be serving my interpretation of 80's glamour in honour of Blanca et al.

Cushion heaven!!! I'm totally obsessed with peachy pinks mixed with monochrome at the moment. This collection includes @osborneandlittle peach velvet with a delicate pattern embossed into it, @designersguild print in black, charcoal and pale pink and an amazing @designersguild recycled fabric from their latest collection. They will be sneaking home with me one by one!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #edinburghinteriors#acanthusinteriors#scottishinteriors#instahome#homesweethome#interiorstyling#homeinspo#homestyling#interiorlovers#interiordetails#homedecorating#homedecoration#monochromehome#inspohome#interiordecoration#interiorforinspo#interiordesigner#interior_and_living#homestyle#dream_interiors#interiorforyou#millennialpink#fabrichoarder#fabricofmylife#interiør#homeinspiration#interiordesire#homewares#newhome#homedetails

It feels a little bit like we took a step back into winter over the weekend with surprise snow on Saturday! still, it feels a bit more spring like today and my mind is completely taken up with flowers. Mothers Day is on the way, our new flower workshops are launching and theres also Easter and a big birthday think about. It certainly beats s.e.o which is taking up the other half of my brain at the moment! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #mothersday#lovemom#flower#flowerstalking#awesome_florals#acanthusinteriors.com#interiorstyling#interiorandhome#flowergift#mothersdaygift#superb_flowers#interiorstyle#loves_flowers_#interiorinspiration#interiorinspo#interiordecor#interior4you#springblooms#my_daily_flower#instaspring#roomforinspo#ig_flowers#flowersofinstagram#ip_blossoms#instablooms#flowerstyle#instaflower#florist#mothersdayinspo#mothersday2019

Having trained as a florist before becoming an interior designer it's always a joy to go back to my roots. Just recently I started experimenting with Ikebana (a Japanese style of flower arranging).⁣ Reading up on it I remembered that not only is it an art form but it's also a meditative process. Where European flower arranging is all about abundance, Ikebana is all about balance and negative space, calm and simplicity. Careful, considered placement of one or two beautiful flowers, some moss and leaves is all you need but the effect is stunning. It strikes me that it could the the perfect antidote to the stresses modern world, almost like yoga. Perhaps that's what we all need at the moment, whether the flowers are real or gorgeously realistic, a little bit of extra beauty can never go amiss!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #florist#instaflower#flowerlesson#ig_flowers#loves_flowers_#floraldesigner#awesome_florals#flowershop#flowerclass#flowerpop#flowerstalking#flowersofinstagram#acanthusinteriors#ikebana#flowerarranging#zenflowers#meditation#fauxflowers#captures_flowers#consciousness#intentional # #floraldesign#loveflowers#_international_flowers_#arrangingwithintent#artificialflowers#mindful#flowerphotography#flowerpic#floristry

You know what they say about pets and owners?!? Miss Polly's great love in life
You know what they say about pets and owners?!? Miss Polly's great love in life is raspberries which I try not to buy out of season but sometimes a small bird needs a treat. She has high standards and prefers her food served on china, preferably on-trend china! Here it's our new Casablanca range which arrived from Denmark a couple of weeks ago. Even her baths have to be in a specific, handmade grey bowl from Sweden (I'll try to post this one day but she's a bit funny about photos at bath-time). ⁣ She has pretty strong opinions on anything interiors related. Parrots can be a bit neo-phobic so while a new lamp or piece of furniture is often treated with great suspicion, sometimes she's delighted by new things in the house. Some pale grey, embroidered cushions made from a @gpjbaker fabric immediately became her favourite place to perch! The new sitting room fireplace (which I thought would cause a total freakout) also got her stamp of approval but a faux chinchilla throw has become her mortal enemy!⁣ I'd love to know, how do your pets react to changes at home? Do they share your aesthetic or merely tolerate it? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #parrotsofinstagram#acanthusinteriors#parrots_life#instaloveparrots#interiorstyling#interiordecor#interiordecorating#decorator#interior2you#interiorstyle#interiorandhome#interiorinspiration#interiorinspo#interior_and_living#interiorforinspo#birdlover#birdstagram#pets_of_our_world#conures#instabirds#pets_perfection#interiorforyou#interiordetails#delight_pets#interior4all#inspohome#parrotlover#audubon#parrotstagram#birdsofinstagram

Is anyone else feeling the cold tonight? im cosying up with scented candles and a bottle of red, planning what to hang on my newly painted @zoffanyfw Bone Black walls. The mirrored and gilt console looks so perfect against this colour and many of my pictures have black fames so I think I'm going to have to break out the gold leaf! Yet another weekend project.⁣ My current favourite styling pieces are the fencing foils in the corner, bought for about £20 for a school art project. admittedly a bit eccentric but fun all the same.⁣ Have a cosy evening!⁣ #interiorstyling#interior123#interiorandhome#interiorforinspo#interiordecorating#interiorlovers#blackwalls#acanthusinteriors#interiorinspiration#edinburghlife#scottishinteriors#interiorstyle#interiordesignideas#weekendproject#nordiskehjem#interior_and_living#decorinspiration#interior4you#goldleaf#apartmentlife#interiorstylist#exploreedinburgh#homedecorating#interiorinspo#homestyle#decorhome#homestyling#interiordetails#interiorforyou#apartmenttherapy

Thinking about wabi-sabi and how it translates for traditional European interior
Thinking about wabi-sabi and how it translates for traditional European interiors. The philosophy behind it is all about the beauty of simple, natural form, traditional crafts and embracing imperfection.⁣ As part of our 2019 collection we're using large, re-cycled brown paper bags for our flowers and plants. Their utilitarian look sits beautifully with flowers, the collection looks so fresh and clean and each bag has creases and texture that makes it unique.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #organic#fresh#wabi-sabi#simple#natural#simplicity#minimalninja#keepitsimple#simpleandpure#refreshed#springishere#millennialpink#interiorstyling#interior_design#interior_and_living#interiorforinspo#interiorandhome#interior123#interiordecorating#edinburghlife#scottishinteriors # #thisisedinburgh#instascotland#loves_scotland

“Toot sweet sounds like what they are⁣ So do lollies in a lolly pop jar⁣ Truly scrumptious, you’re truly, truly scrumptious⁣ Scrumptious as a cherry peach parfait!”⁣ All the e numbers in our pink doughnuts and angel cakes have taken us back to childhood and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (luckily Jenny knows all the show tunes!)

The new windows are finally in, the weather is gorgeous and we've got a new layout in the shop! Suddenly feeling like summer is a possibility which is my cue to open a bottle of pink Prosecco in the garden, tying in neatly with the Millenial pink theme in our flowers and accessories for 2019. There seems to have been some discussion about whether Millennial Pink is over but I can't really imagine how it could be, its the most optimistic colour and so very versatile. In one window its paired with black and white ceramics, rough wooden textures and @sandbergandfriends newest paper "Pine" from their stellar new collection "Nippon", inspired by Japanese wabi-sabi tradition. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #perfection#wabi-sabi#millennialpink#springishere#interior_design#interiorstyling#interiorinspo#interiorinspiration#interiordecor#homestyling#fresh#organic#natural#interiordecorating#interiordetails#cushionlove#interiorforinspo#edinburghlife#apartmenttherapy#scottishinteriors#visitedinburgh#instaedinburgh#luxuryinteriors#howyouhome#interiordecoration#exploreedinburgh#loveedinburgh

Spring is truly in the way now that the first crocus has been spotted in Edinburgh and along with it comes our new artificial flowers! Inspired by Henri Fantin-Latour’s masterly paintings, the collection includes gorgeous garden roses in pinks, pale peach and cream peonies and dusty pink and green hydrangeas. We’ll be pairing them with Queen Anne’s Lace and Fritillaria for texture! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #interiorstyling#artificialflowers#interiordesignideas#flowers#flowermagic#flowerstagram#interior4all#interiorinspiration#hydrangea#floweroftheday#peonylove#gardenroses#millennialpink#acanthusinteriors#acanthusstyle#bloom#interiorwarrior#instaflower#interiorandhome#hortensia#sopretty

It has been a beautiful day in Edinburgh today but we are still feeling the cold. Thank goodness for iPads so we can work whilst sitting on the radiators. We have been reminiscing about our cosiest projects and I think this sitting room in Aberdeen is at the top of my list. I know blue is often thought of as a cold colour but @zoffanyfw Velvet Blue is so rich that when paired with golds and warm neautrals it can create the perfect cosy room. Adding touches of @ralphlaurenhome Jute Stripe fabric on the upholstery helps to add a textured layered look and you can never go wrong with @gpjbaker embroidered cushions. Their designs are always elegant and timeless.

How cold it’s it today?!? With snow on the way we’re totally craving the cosy warmth of some of the divine new fabrics from @designersguild in gorgeous peach and coral pink (with a hint of terracotta for a 90’s flashback!). To keep it right up to date pair it with matt gold, rough black finishes and chunky linens. Oh and @talaled lighting will always raise the visual temperature! 💫💡🕯🤩😍

I feel a bit like the Anti-Marie Kondo at the moment! Having spent the weekend tidying and cleaning and re-arranging things I discovered two old letterpress typesetting drawers I’d forgotten I owned. I have put them on display in the sitting room, behind a chandelier lamp and I’m going to start filling up the boxes. It’s tricky to find things that work so it’ll take a bit of time and I think they’ll look better with some negative space too but so far I have; tickets to the Capuchine Ossuary in Rome 💀 some antique dolls house cutlery pebbles from Skye a piece of amethyst 💜 tiny spymaster radio that belonged to my grandfather a skeleton leaf 🍂 some coral/orange parrot feathers. 🦜 I like all of these things but in some cases it’s the memory, not the actual item and they will make challenging to dust without causing chaos. So my question is; should I keep filling the boxes or should I leave them empty???

So it’s Friday night and it’s been a highly productive first week back, we’ve been planning our social media for the next few weeks, including a couple of exciting #giveaways and some new product launches! January is usually when we head off to Paris for trade fairs but this year, with our renewed commitment to sustainability we’ll be doing something different! For now I’m off for tapas, and a bucket of sangria obvs🤩 at cosy El Quijote in Tollcross, Edinburgh. Then rolling into bed because I have the weekend off and therefore I can stay in my pyjamas for two whole days💃, writing blog-posts (theoretically) and hanging out with Miss Polly! 🍾🥂🕯🦜
