Blue, white and yellow

We all know that the classic ‘Blue & White’ combination is difficult to beat but sometimes adding another colour makes things even better. Brazilian interior designer Jorge Elias used yellow alongside the famous colour combo to create the perfect summer house.

Oscar de la Renta home collection

I’ve always admired the late Oscar de la Renta not only because of his amazing career in fashion but also because of his exquisite taste in interiors. So when his eponymous brand contacted me a few weeks ago to do a collaboration with them I was over the moon.

Every single item from Oscar de la Renta’s home collection boasts beauty. Vivid colours and chic prints on high-quality materials create timeless pieces that you’ll use over and over again. I especially liked the cutlery, it works perfectly with any kind of table. The green lattice plates are another favourite of mine,  and the tortoiseshell tray and the brass vases…well I love everything (packaging too!)

Here are the pictures I took at home with some of the beautiful creations. You can see & buy the whole collection HERE .

Terracotta Pots

There’s something very appealing about the simplicity of terracotta pots. On today’s blog post I’m sharing with you some great examples on how to use them.
