"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

My favourite colour trend this season

Cobalt blue is a major trend this season that's popping up everywhere.  I love this bold hue and have picked up a few pieces myself to add to my wardrobe.  Shoes to walls and everything in between this colour is a definite pick me up for any outfit or room in your home.  Here are some of my picks.

Of course Blake Lively is always on trend (or in this case Serena)

Zara (I have these and love them!)

Aritzia (I also have this dress and it looks great with a pair of white skinny jeans)

Blake's at is again with this fab bag!

Benjamin Moore Patriot Blue


  1. I am so with you on this one! Much to my surprise, I am suddenly in love with deep dark blues!

  2. Love that blue Andrea! Your post makes me want to go shopping! Have a great weekend :-)

  3. I've also been smitten with that colour lately. That JA lamp is to die for.

  4. I HEART cobalt blues, and I am so happy you say it is on trend cause I have a few too many pieces in this color. Phew!!
