Top Picks From George Home SS15

  I think everyone has been waiting for a little summer here in rainy England & we finally had it! For one day.. So I've been searching the corners of the internet for a bit of Sun and came across George Home Summer Collections. I've picked out a few of my favourite pieces from two collections to show you, Shore Living & Eden Bedroom.

| Throw - £10 | Binoculars - £2 | Vase - £6 | 
| Lamp - £35 | Octopus Cushion - Out of Stock | Map Cushion - £7 |

"Dip your toe into this season’s coastal trend with nautical-inspired accessories and textiles in sandy beige and all shades of blue."

  I've always been a bit hit & miss with coastal trends, swaying towards them only looking good in a beach house in the South Hamptons or on a house boat; There is something about a few of these pieces though that I feel the need to rush out and grab them for myself.

| Jar Light - £15 | Cushion - £5 | Bunny Jar Bell - £5 |
| Throw - £10 | Duvet Cover - £14 |

"There’s nothing plain about this look. It’s pattern all the way in raspberry and juicy purple shades. Opt for a big country check or painted watercolour flowers, everywhere."

  I have to say I've already gone out and brought the Watercolour Pattern Duvet Cover (You know me & watercolour patterns!) & I think I need to go out now to Asda and pick some more bits, Be right back.

Has anywhere got you slipping on your sundress & sipping pimps ready in wait?

Five things;

  With me & Mr M planning on getting our new place soon, I have been looking online a lot more recently for new home inspiration, be it new kitchen gadgets that I don't think I'd ever use or new art prints to hang in our living room. Over the last few days I have found five objects I need in my life right now - No question. 

| Newgate Clock - £20 | Elephant Lamp - £30 | Plate & Bowl Set - £18 | Duvet Cover - £70 | Glass Terrarium - £40 |

I really am loving the botanical theme at the moment for the bedding room, while actually just in general; It's just perfect for the start of spring and on those chilly nights in winter when you're dreaming of warmer times. The Joules Duvet Cover is just perfect for the botanical theme, the neutral tones  highlighted with yellow from the mini bees in the pattern means the colour in your room come from the prints, glass vases & plants in your Urban Outfitters terrarium

Have you started to love all things botanical?

  So I have been AWOL, MIA and any other army reference I can think of! A lot has happened in the last few months from engagements to operations, from 45 hour work weeks to being so ill I couldn't get out of bed. I haven't been able to do as many designs as I would of liked either but I'm trying to bring my creations to life again.

Time for a photo collage! Oh yeah baby.

  So was an exciting & stressful few months; Me and Matthew got engaged in February at Scarborough, I now have a beautiful Sapphire & Diamond ring attached to my left hand (But not for the five days I lost it, started to go manic crazy and then found it in the washing pile..); I had an operation on my left eye in November, which didn't work and my consultant still doesn't know whats wrong with them; I've had a few nice days out thanks to Matthew getting a new job, with the wage to match; A close family friend got the two cutest King Charles Spaniels called Finley & Millie, I've fallen in love with them; Last week I got a wonderful new pair of glasses for spring; & lots more.

   I'm hoping this will be the end of my blogging break & that I'll be back with many new post. I just want to thank the few followers who have stuck with Watercolour Camera while I've been AWOL, you don't now how much that mean to me.

Wishlist - Oliver Bonas

  I think I may have found my new favourite shop! Oliver Bonas has everything.. Homeware, Clothes, Furniture, Jewellery & much, much more. Although I will have to take a mortgage out on my imaginary house to buy everything I love on the site, I still think they're a reasonable priced shop. So here is my most loved pieces from Oliver Bonas;

| Scarf - £9 | Photo Frame - £26 | Hanging Mirror - £25 | Coffee Table - £350 | 
| Round Stone Bangle - £26 | Chest of Draws - £495 |
| Leaf & Stone Necklace - £26 | Dress - £65 | Hand & Nail Cream - £8.50 |

  Now lets just take a moment to talk about Oliver Bonas furniture, it is just gorgeous & out there at the same time! Different colour combinations, types of wood and all the different draws handles on one piece.. amazing! I think if you got one of these piece it would have to be the focus of your room & everything else toned down, otherwise the room would slash and be too much to take in at once (white walls, framed black & white prints, matching blue sofa, etc). The prices may seem a little high but they're pieces you'll love & have for a number of years! 
  The jewellery I've picked out I'm secretly thinking of buying for myself as a present. Christmas is only round of corner & I need a few new pieces for family meals & outings. The necklace is a great autumn piece, the leaf design is lovely, really delicate, stunninig. I'm really into stone jewellery at the moment which is why I think I've picked out two items featuring them; I think it's a good investment as stone is timeless, you would of seen it in the flapping 1920's and it's a good bet it will be round another hundred years.
  The hanging copper mirror would of been a great edition in the A/W Copper Wishlist, Copper is really popular at the moment for home decor! This mirror would be a great way to add a little detail into your living room or hallway.
  I think this shop may be my favourite find of the year... If only I was a rich girl (Gwen Stefani moment there.. That song will stuck in my head for days now!) I would be buying their whole stock & everything they get in future.

  Have you used Oliver Bonas before? Found any little gems?
