Hello my dears and happy Monday to you all!

We're on the last leg, the last week before the holidays are here. Yep, Christmas is coming! After the last few months of madness I am so ready for it I can tell you! Not that I'm quite ready for it in other ways though as there is still a bunch of things to sort out - a huge pile of washing that has accumulated recently is taking up today's entire to do list, a wee bit more floor painting still needs to be done, there are still the presents to organise and I haven't even thought about sending cards yet! But despite the list of things not yet done there is a sense of relief coursing through my mind and body right now. This weekend we got to move back into our bedroom again... whoop, whoop! No more sleeping in the living room with the hum of traffic lulling us to sleep or being rudely awoken by late night early morning revellers passing by. You know that feeling of sleeping in your own bed again after travelling for a while? The sense of relief, comfort and security? It kinda feels like that. The chaos and stress are subsiding while the familiar regains control again. I like familiar. It feels especially good just now and with all my fingers and toes crossed I hoping it will last a wee while, through the holiday break at the very least!

Tomorrow I might even have time to think about the festive decorating and fish out our little plastic tree from the back of it's cupboard! I did do a wee bit of festive thinking over the weekend and ordered some of these gorgeous paper snowflakes in grey and white. Aren't they fabulous!? I can't wait for them to arrive! A couple of weeks ago I started crocheting a few tiny gold stars which will make a gorgeous garland to contrast with these snowflakes, I'll show you later. Can you tell I'm still on my neutrals kick at the moment!? I'm not sure how long it will last because I've just remembered the multi-coloured, mini glass baubles I picked up last year! We'll see...

Anyhow, I am rambling on and haven't even mentioned today's festive inspired favourites from 'making everyday beautiful'! Thank you to the wonderful Ilaria for the inspiration! Aren't these blues so pretty!? Between the grey clouds and hail stone showers the skies over Edinburgh have been this colour today. Right now as the sun is setting there's barely a cloud in the sky which is fading to the prettiest pale aqua. The softest tone that you only really see in the winter... beautiful!

making everyday beautiful : seasonal delights

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!?

Today I just couldn't help myself with this chocolaty festive theme for my 'making everyday beautiful' picks! Monday's are always better with chocolate (as is every other day, of course!), but chocolate sprinkled amongst a few gorgeous seasonal delights... well, that's even better! I have to confess that one of the things I am looking forward to most over the holidays is a few days of unrestrained chocolaty indulgence. Instead of limiting my daily intake to two or three squares of the currently open bar I shall be scoffing a few of these and these that are already waiting patiently in the cupboard and hoping for lots of these and some of this and this and this and this and... I could go on and on and on, but you get the idea ;)

colour crush : Ferm Living's festive style

Seasonal colour inspiration from the X-MAS collection by Ferm Living, colour palette curated by Emma Lamb

It's not often I pick out such neutral tones as part of my 'today I'm loving' column but lately I'm finding these to be far more appealing than bright colours. Maybe it's just because I'm craving calm amongst the chaos, or possibly reflecting the paint colours I'm working with this week - wintry white and cool grey?


Either way the festive styling over at Ferm Living is totally pushing my buttons! All those cool greys with tiny hints of warm pink, ochre and brown are just lovely. I love the black details too, especially on this amazing Christmas tree - so non traditional and so perfectly styled! Once I get my studio back to normal in a week or so, it will be in for a wee spot of festive decorating and this will definitely be my inspiration!

blog crush : Citrusandorange

blog crush : Citrusandorange | Emma Lamb

I am sure many of you are already huge fans of Citrusandorange, the absolutely gorgeous blog by Susana Oliveira, but if you're not here is a wee peek of what you are missing. I know, right! So, so beautiful! I have been a long time fan of Susana's work and she has been a regular contributor to 'making eveyday beautiful'.


Over the last few weeks though I have been especially loving her festive styling where she mixes traditional morrocan inspired pieces with lots of vintage mid century Christmas decorations (her collection of hand painted mercury glass baubles is enviable!) in the most stunning colour combinations. Endless golden tones mixed with vintage shades of pink, warm turquoise and mint with hints of lilac and holly green. Festive pastels at their absolute best!

Susana also styles dessert and birthday table settings and, as well as her lovely blog, you can see more of her work on her Pinterest pages and her Facebook pages.

making everyday beautiful : it's starting to look a lot like christmas!

Hello and happy Monday!

That festive feeling is starting to creep over me now and with all the lovely Christmassy images you've been adding to 'making everyday beautiful' recently I just couldn't resist curating this collection today...

This December I've been bringing out one decoration a day, kinda like a reverse advent calendar. So far we have a fairy light trellis and my favourite vintage baubles hanging on pretty bare twigs. However today I think it has to be the day for our wee tree and obviously more fairy lights, I'm on the hunt for some pretty neon pink ones! I haven't made a decoration yet this year and I keep thinking about paper stars...
