Styling The Seasons, January.



Hello everyone!

I don't know where this month has gone.
As I sit and write this post it's beautiful and bright out there with a sharp frost, thank goodness the seasons have started to behave themselves at last.

Welcome to my home for Januarys Styling The Seasons. 
I always style with flowers to brighten up my space, and this month I am loving these candy stripe tulips!




So fresh with the promise of spring! They look very cheerful placed on the mantle above the log burner, and are a lovely soft contrast against the blackened painted walls and mizzle painted mirror (both +Farrow & Ball). 



The candle sticks were from one of my favourite vintage stores in Southwold, and the tulips are in an old jam jar which I love! I've just recently reclaimed one of our old mirrors and given it a fresh coat of paint. The pink, mint green and pale blue are still one of my favourite colour combos, and it's so lovely to freshen things up a bit after Christmas.


I love taking part in #stylingtheseasons, it's a wonderful community over on instagram, and is hosted by two fabulous ladies... Charlotte of Lotts and Lots  and Katy of Apartment Apothecary, both of which have lovely blogs for you to check out! 
Anyone can join in too!

Wishing you all a lovely week!

  1. Oh the flowers are delightful...

    We are very, very cold here, but it is seasonal. Which is more normal.

    "soft contrast against the blackened painted walls" I don't see any blackened walls though... :-)

    Gentle hugs...

    1. Ah thank you!
      A good cold snap will make us appreciate Spring even more xx

  3. The colour of those tulips are just beautiful. I'm desperately trying to hold off from buying tulips just yet, it still feels too early for me (even though in years gone by I have totally indulged) I just love how much flowers brighten a space, it's like an instant transformation, and so pretty too x x x

    1. Ah thanks Gem, I just couldn't resist these! Hope you're having a great week xx

  4. Ah, so soft and pretty - what gorgeous colours. Love those candle sticks too, I must get to Southwold again soon. The blog looks amazing xx

    1. Thank you so much Katy, glad you like it. Southwold is one of my most favourite places ever, so relaxing with great shops.

  5. So pretty, loving all the pastel shades-reminds me that Spring is only round the corner xx

    1. Thanks lovely!
      Yes, not far to go now xx
