Celestial Bedroom Moodboard

In very exciting news it looks like I may soon be getting my own flat! So I’ve been daydreaming about all the decor and D.I.Y I will be doing!!!! So I will of course be blogging about it all. To start with I’m making moodboards for each room, here’s my ideas for my bedroom. I’m going with a magical/celestial theme.

Clockwise from the top:

  • On one wall, I will have some narrow shelves with some of my favourite things, including my Harry Potter replica Time Turner, and my Luna Lovegood wand from the Harry Potter studio tour.
  • Also on the shelves I will have this amazing illustration I’ve just bought by Oh No Rachio! ‘Be Kind’ is my motto in life.
  • I love this fairy illustration by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. I like the black and white theme. I have a set of black and white tarot cards I bought from ebay after reading ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern and I intend to put a few of these in frames on the wall.
  • Winking Eye Pillow Set from Urban Outfitters.
  • Glitter paint by Craig and Rose to go on top of…
  • Dark blue paint on one wall. To look like a starry night!
  • Example! Photo from Pinterest.
  • White Sun and Moon Throw to go over my bed.

It will be interesting to see what the finished room looks like, and whether I change my mind before then!

Make a House a Home

I don’t know about anyone else, but I spend a lot of time imagining what my perfect house would look like! I live with my parents at the moment, but with my new job starting next month, I’m starting to think about getting my own place!

The best place I look for inspiration is Pinterest!! Here’s some of my favourite pictures so far.

Josie Likes… Cath Kidston’s ‘Coming Up Roses’

Image

This book grabbed me while I was looking round a Cath Kidston Store. It is a beautiful hard back book, in true Cath Kidston style and not just on the outside, the inside is absolutely filled with photos and illustrations. The book itself is quite short and doesn’t take long to read, but I found it really interesting to read about how Cath started out and how she became so successful, especially as I hope to one day do craft full time myself. It reminds you of how hard it is but that if you have a good enough and unique enough idea it is possible. Overall, a good and easy read about the story behind one of the biggest brands in the craft world.

“I’m A Piece” for Save the Children

So I posted in January about my piece for the I’m a Piece campaign with Save the Children and the Craftivist Collective. Today they came to London and I went along to see them! It was really great to see, I took along my manager and a lady who works in my office and they loved it too and thought it was moving and inspiring. I spotted my piece “Food for Thought”! Here it is in the middle:
