The Urban Jungle Bloggers challenge for September is Plant and Art.
I have a new addition to my indoor plant collection, the amazing Philodendron Xanadu. This is such a wonderful way to show off this amazing plant which needs little care but looks gorgeous and can light up any corner in your home. The green shiny leathery leaves of this exotic looking plant is the highlight.
There are a lot of wonderful bloggers out there who are a part of the big Urban Jungle Bloggers family, take a look at their interpretation of Plant and Art here.
When you need an instant colour update in your space but are not exactly sure how much colour you need or have budget constraints (like most of us often do ) getting yourself a bright and vibrant roll of wallpaper is a definite way to go ahead. Whether it is an accent wall which is your preferred choice for the wallpaper or all four walls, here are my top picks.Do let me know what you think.
This classic Orla Kiely wallpaper just can’t go wrong…..yellow equals vibrant in my book, what say?? http://www.orlakiely.com
Iris wallpaper by Flavor Paper….this Van Gogh inspired wallpaper would be brilliant for an entrance hallway. http://www.flavorpaper.com
Love geometric wallpapers? This geometric harlequin kaleidoscope wallpaper is brilliant for an accent or headboard wall in the bedroom. http://www.amara.com
An exposed brick wall or a concrete wall…..put a statement wallpaper next to it, your task is done….the end results are stunning. http://www.tektura.com
‘A room without books is like a body without a soul’……. I truly appreciate this saying. Books are one of the elements that defines and personalise a space. So if you are like me and have a great weakness for books especially coffee table books you would also pay a lot of attention to how you arrange the books or the book cases.
Colour breathes life into a space so colourful bookcases are striking and a fabulous way to showcase your collection, let’s take a look at ten really drool worthy colourful bookshelves.
An eye-catching and interesting bookshelf in red……using bright colours works really well if it can be balanced by a lighter colour on the floor and ceiling. http://www.domino.com
Another way of using red….just paint the wall behind the bookshelf in a bright accent colour if you don’t want to go all bold. http://www.pinterest.com
A bookshelf in bright blue…..add an accessory, the cushion in this photograph to really highlight the colour, works beautifully. http://www.desiretoinspire.net
Against a stark white wall this Cubit shelving unit would look simply stunning. homeli.co.uk
