Now the light has started to make it around to our north facing bedroom windows, this room is the perfect spring reading spot for taking a half hour break during the day. A few things have been moved around in the room and some nomad accessories have found permanent homes. So I thought I would share a few photos with you for this month’s Styling the Seasons with Katy and Charlotte. Wishing you a magical April!I have brightened up my bedside with some embroidered vintage linen, my beautiful Alocasia – a gift from my two favourite plant loving people – Igor and Judith and a few other treasured items. Anyone else keep their most adored crystals close by for good vibes?I love my solemn girl, I only just discovered that the caption says day dreams. That makes me love her even more. I move her around the house all the time, but she usually ends up by the bed. During my recent clear out, my jewellery box was significantly diminished and now I am left with just the pieces that make me really happy and I actually wear. To keep myself in order I have hung them on plain nails hammered straight into the wall. Easiest DIY project ever and now I can easily pick out a necklace on my way out!A few treasured photos are dotted around the place – say hello to my 3-year-old dad there ;)My brass bangles cannot be tamed, so they are piled up together in this 1970’s wooden bowl. It was a happy £1.50 in a charity shop buy.I always have to share the bed with this fuzzy monster as she likes to sleep right up against me when I am reading or watching a movie.Finally here are the books in my reading stack this month.
Bloomsbury in Sussex by Simon Watney. I have been head over heels for the Bloomsbury set since I visited Charleston a few year ago.
