Eclectic Summer styling Summer style indoors here is going to be eclectic and mismatched as we try to finish our house renovation ready for the end of summer. Versatile pieces of furniture are most welcomed as we are always moving things (even when the house is not in disarray). Today’s photos share a few of the many ways in which a bench can be a happy thing to incorporate into a home.Bench shelving The Kingsley bench is our new favourite piece of furniture, useful,  solid and sturdy – it was kindly given to us by the folks at for a styling collaboration and permanent home here with us. I am over on their blog too today, sharing some simple summer styling ideas – come see!Eclectic bench styling Eclectic Summer styling Wallis, loves it obviously! Nothing gets in through the door without her inspection and footprints all over it – within seconds.Wabi-sabi styling paletteThis is exactly what we have been looking for. I chose it from the dining collection. I didn’t realise that sold anything else but sofas and we already have an abundance of chairs, so this was the perfect discovery.Wabi-sabi styling paletteBeautifully designed and useful – it will be used as extra seating when friends come over to dine outside, a window seat with a view, a long coffee table or relaxed shelving for plants and more. Even my carpenter dad was impressed, a high complement indeed.Wabi-sabi styling palette Wabi-sabi styling paletteOak window seatIts current incarnation is as an under window seat in the living room. Right next to the sofa it has become – end table, bookshelf and somewhere to sit all at once.Oak window seatWishing you another lovely sunny day, stay safe and don’t forget the sunscreen, water and a hat too! xOak window seat

    Hi! I love this bench! I have some crazy, inexpiable love for stools and benches. Looks great with your setup here. Did you get the quilted pad on top separately?

    I hope to have a bench one day just like this but need to acquire a house first! Your nest is so cozy and beautiful (with or without a kitchen!) :)
