My Favourite Looks For: Living Rooms

We have just finished decorating our living room, so we are left with a shell to fill with personality, which in my opinion is by far the best bit.

I'm a self-confessed colourphobe when it comes to interior design. If it's not in the taupe, grey, white, or from the 'neutral' family, I'm usually not listening! Now, as we begin to embrace the new season here at Butterfly Lane, I am determined to also embrace the subject of colour - and injecting it in to interior design.

Style: The Gallery

Style: The Gallery Wall

Gallery walls create a chic and stylish statement for any room in your home. Use different sized and shaped frames to create a haphazard, 'thrown on the wall' look or simply use identical frames for a uniformed style, like below.

Must Have Metal:

Must Have Metal: Copper

The copper hue is on the rise and I couldn't be more excited. It has a warmth and style that cannot be matched by other metals. Copper doesn't overwhelm the interior of a room, it is very subtle but steals the show every time.

Debate: Modern Luxury or Classic Country

Debate: Modern Luxury or Classic Country Chic?

in the last few months I've hit an unexpected cross roads in my design life, where I am beginning to be divided between classic country chic styling and modern simplicity. Now, I live in a listed property but this doesn't mean I can't delve in to my inner modernista does it?

The Colour of 2013 Is... Green!

So, the colour of 2013 will be green. From clothes, jewels and interiors this fresh shade will be dominant. I have made it abundantly clear about my desire of neutral, uncompromising interiors, but a <em>hint</em> of colour is always welcome.

Kitchen Love

I admit it; I am a 'wannabe' domestic goddess! I love nothing more than hosting guests in my home, pouring drinks, laying out nibbles, and making everywhere look pretty. This is why the kitchen is such an important room in my home, like it is for many other like-minded, homely folk.
