On the Topic of... Everyday
There really is so much truth in the saying that little things can make the biggest difference, in all areas of life but especially when it comes to the home! I love incorporating small touches around the house to make me smile and find that they can really set the tone for the kind of space you want to create. Whether it’s a vase of fresh flowers by your bedside table, sipping coffee from your favourite mug in the morning or adding a heavenly scented soap to the basin, these simple additions are so easy to achieve, but go a long way towards making each day just that little bit more special!
For me, nothing beats curling up at the end of the day with a cup of tea and a good book and I find that lamplight is a must for creating the perfect cosy atmosphere. Swap your overhead spots for table lamps in the afternoon and evening for an instant mood fix.
There is just something so joyful about having fresh flowers around the house! For large arrangements and big blooms our ceramic vases make a great statement and add a touch of Grecian elegance to the countertop and table. And for the smaller posies gathered from the garden our highball cocktails glasses are the answer and sit beautifully in the kitchen or by the bedside.
Laying an attractive table is part of my everyday ritual. Even when it is just us at home there is something about adding napkins and maybe even a tablecloth, pretty glasses and cutlery that really lifts the mood. In the evenings I always light candles which makes even the simplest dinners seem special. It's the little things but I promise they really do make all the difference!
