New: Copper & Mirrors

Pleat copper vase (in the sale), mini deco mirrors and copper terrarium: Oliver Bonas
Broste Copenhagen grey vase: House Envy
Tom Dixon copper candle: Trouva (was called StreetHub)
Wild mint candle: The White Company
White ornate mirror: M&S
Copper vase: Habitat

I'm back with new interior post, I've been away so long as I had my precious baby boy and has taken over my life!

For now, my latest obsession has been copper and mirrors, love the contrast of white, grey and copper, a gorgeous combination.  These are some of the things I've purchased since I've been away.  Beautiful grey and copper vases with a pleat design from various stores and all happen to be from the brand Broste Copenhagen, love this scandinavian store.
Also picked up a few things from Oliver Bonas for the first time, copper vase and terrarium and pretty vintage style mini mirrors which took me ages to decide where to display them, they are now in my hallway!  Yes, I got another copper vase, this is a large one from Habitat, not really meant for water and flowers but I still use for fresh flowers!
Tom Dixon candle has been on my wishlist forever, I finally have this gorgeous looking and smelling candle in my home, I'm always changing things around so you will always see my things in various places around my home!  I also managed to get the Wild mint candle from The White Company sale, smells so so nice and love the all white packaging of course.
The ornate mirror, I bought a long while ago and only recently had it put up in my hallway, had to be in white obviously.

Hope you all still want to see interior posts from me and maybe nursery posts?

Peek into my Home Office & Studio

White furniture: Ikea, Brass metal drawers and grey desk lamp:, Acrylic storage: Muji, Winter candle: The White Company, Engraved pencils & Paris print: Dottie Rocks Etsy
Fashion prints and paintings: made by me Cocostyle Studio

My home office/studio is always a work in progress, since taking the above pictures it has changed (a little) again!  I'm never happy with how it looks for long, these are just a few pictures of what I've done so far.  I'm trying to keep everything white and bright, which is hard in such a small room, hopefully once I'm somewhat happy with the whole look I'll show a tour of the full room.  It will never look like the stunning white dream home offices I spend hours pinning to my Pinterest boards though!

Most of the white furniture is from Ikea, has to be practical as I work from home a lot and also paint and sell my art work from here.  Just so you don't think this is how it always looks, it's never normally this tidy, always has work laptop, papers, art materials everywhere!

New Stationery

Notes tower block and ruler: Hay at Selfridges, Oui notebooks set: Rifle Paper Co at Selfridges

While I was visiting London recently, I popped into Selfridges and stumbled across Hay, I've heard great things about this scandinavian store but had no idea Selfridges sold their lovely products! I think it's a pop up store so no idea how long it will be there but they do sell online.  There was so much I wanted to buy from their homeware and stationery range, especially the geometric trays!  Although it is slightly expensive, everything is so well made and designed.
I only bought a few stationery items, they have an extensive range in simple gorgeous colours!  Love this grey note block with geometric patterns and the little mint green striped wooden ruler, both look perfect on my desk in my home office.

I also browsed the stationery section in Selfridges and bought this Oui notebook set, I'm addicted to notebooks and love the Oui design and check pattern, Rifle Paper Co is not available in many places but Selfridges had a small range, they have such pretty stationery, love it!

Blue Manolo Blahnik Shoe Art

Blue Manolo Blahnik shoe, A4 & 5 X 7" art prints: Cocostyle Studio Etsy shop

My latest fashion painting is the gorgeous blue Manolo Blahnik shoe, inspired by the heels Carrie wore on her wedding day in the Sex & the City film.  Iconic classic statement heel, perfect to display in your bedroom, dressing table, boudoir or dressing room, love how it turned out!
The original painting was created using acrylic on canvas, these are prints I've had printed from my original painting and are available in 2 sizes in my Etsy shop, A4 and smaller 5 X 7".

I have a separate instagram account just for my artwork, you can follow me here cocostylestudio

My art website is Cocostyle Studio where you can see more of my artwork.

Friday Inspiration: H&M Homeware

H&M Home is the place to go for affordable yet seriously stylish homeware.  I've always browsed their online homeware section but never really bought anything except for a few cushion covers a while ago, also there is no store near me that stocks their homeware, I popped into their London store recently for the first time, only had a quick look and but was really impressed, the online homeware section is pretty extensive too!
These are just some of my favourite things I would love to have in my own home.  Adore their stunning range of copper candles, beautiful unscented candles, grey storage baskets in metal and felt material, grey cushions, vintage style mirror and cute pineapple storage container! I've not burned their scented candles so not sure how strong the scent is but you can't beat the price.
Also loving the kitchenware, the glass vintage style storage jars and bottles, wooden trays, pretty ceramic dishes, tea towels with lovely quotes, so many gorgeous things to go with any style kitchen.
This list could have gone on and on as everything is so nice, they have designed everything with the all latest trends in mind especially copper, grey and white and all at bargain prices.

I'm pretty sure I'll be placing an order soon...
