colour crush : Urban Oufitters geometric rugs

colour crush : Urban Oufitters geometric rugs | Emma Lamb

I'm still sorting through Lake District photos so today I want to share these colourful geometric rugs from Urban Outfitters that caught my eye recently...


I'm always on the look out for these kind of printed cotton rugs because when you live with a Cocker Spaniel whose fluffy pre-haircut paws are like sponges for mud and muck you need something you can chuck in the washing machine easily. I know you're not supposed to wash them but if you don't mind a wee bit of shrinkage they are ideal for Spaniel homes!

Today I'm especially loving these four for their colours and am thinking the point rug above would go perfectly in my bedroom with my new floral sheets. Don't you think so too? The more of you that agree the better I may be able to convince my Man, ha!

And these three below? Well there's definitely more of those intense indigo / sapphire blues I also seem to have my eye on right now. Remember my Hedgehog Fibres picks from last week? Yum! I am absolutely adoring them combined with the warm peachy tones and soft greys in the Chevron Flip rug below. Such an amazing combination! That one I'm thinking would look great under my studio desk ;)

colour crush : Joules Ruby blooms

colour crush : Joules Ruby blooms | Emma Lamb

Talking of fabrics and beautiful prints I am completely head over heels for my new duvet cover and pillowcases from Joules range of floral bedding. They are just so totally me! All those stunning colours - bright red, hot pink, ochre and mustard with teal greens and blue set against a crisp white background. Oh yeah! I've always had a soft spot for their vintage style, splodgy floral prints and this yummyness is from their Ruby Floral collection.

Yesterday was the first day in weeks we've had lovely sunshine and blue skies over Edinburgh and although I purposefully picked a double duvet cover to use over the summer months I couldn't wait to see how this beauty would look in the sunshine. So yesterday morning while it was bright and beautiful and the sun was streaming through the window I popped it on the bed and stood back to admire these beautiful blooms in all their glory! I can't wait to be waking up to these on bright sunny Sunday mornings, having breakfast in bed and crocheting a couple of hours away amongst this loveliness. The colours are so uplifting and I can't help but smile when I see them. Sheets that totally make me happy!

And do you know what else I am most chuffed about!? How well my little Yvonne cushion cover matches, the colours are almost identical! You'd be forgiven for thinking that I had just crocheted her to match these sheets even though she came of my hook nearly three years ago and the yarns I used were a thifty find, colours that were discontinued ten years ago! Definitely a timeless colour combination for me.

Can't say my wee man is quite so chuffed about the new sheets as I am though. Ain't no way he's getting on the bed with these beauties, don't care how pleading those big brown eyes are. So not happening! It'll happen.

good reads : Heart Home magazine, autumn 2013

Paper.String.Cloth. - one of my favourite articles from Heart Home magazine, autumn 2013 | Emma Lamb

Is it just me or are there tons of great magazines out this season!? I'm having a hard time keeping up with them all and finding the time to flick through all their lovely pages of beautiful inspiration. But this morning during a wee tea break I found a few minutes to do just that and have been virtually thumbing through the pages of the new Heart Home magazine.


In this autumn issue they've gone for a rustic retro woodland theme and there are two articles I'm particularly loving. The first is Paper.String.Cloth. (above) which is a beautifully styled inspiration shoot using linens, twine and old book pages to create some simple projects for adding a touch of rustic charm to your autumn decor. I love the star especially and with a wee bit more colour I would love to do something like this for the festive season - a few well placed panel pins in my wall and then go crazy with some yarn from my stash! Oh, and the second article I'm loving is a wee peek into the beautiful mid-century Scandinavian styled home of Roddy & Ginger designer Victoria Armstrong (below). Isn't it gorgeous!? I love the simple palette of warm teak, orange, white, grey and mustard - exactly the kind of space you imagine Victoria living in when you see her artwork.

paint palette : Farrow & Ball's new hues for 2013

emma lamb

Since I'm having a 'me' week this week I though I would look to some of the professionals for a colour palette this week and who better than Farrow & Ball!? This week they added nine new paint shades to their range, some very typical of their style alongside one or two fun surprises. Take a peek...

As I said the range of whites and greys they've added are very typical of their signature style as are some of the cute and quirky names. Mole's Breath "reflecting the beautiful colour of a mole’s coat" and Dimpse being "the colour of twilight according to West Country dialect". Stiffkey Blue is another Farrow & Ball classic "reminiscent of the extraordinary colour of the mud found at Stiffkey beach, Norfolk". The surprises are a true pink called Nancy's Blushes, the energising St Giles Blue and the retro inspired Yelowcake!

Although I'm not excited by the new 'whites' (I always prefer a pure white) I think it's a well balanced collection of colours to add to their range and I do have my favourites. I love St Giles Blue for an accent colour but Nancy's Blushes is the one catching my imagination most of all. It's not far from all those peachy tones I'm loving right now and I could certainly see myself working it into one or two furniture projects, maybe with a wee hint of the Purbeck Stone or Mole's Breath?

Which ones, if any, are your favourites? Do let me know in the comments, I'd love to know your thoughts on these.

colour crush : Bluebellgray rugs

Cait Rug by Bluebellgray | Emma Lamb

I am a such huge fan of Blubellgray and Fi Douglas's fabulous watercolour florals! They are so uplifting and fun, as well as a permanent reminder of spring and summer colour.


As we're in the midst of redecorating our home and choosing new furnishings we so desperately need I'm looking for ways I can work in some of this floral cheer. One of these rugs filling my living room floor would certainly do just that, I think 'Christine' would be my first choice - isn't she gorgeous!? - but I do love Fi's 'Abstract' design because it is just so playful and free. 'Cait' is gorgeous too, but rather than a rug I would love this as a framed print for my wall. Now if I can jut convince the Man in my life that florals are fabulous I can have the wonderful task of unrolling 'Christine' in my living room!
