It's been a black + white week.

So it's the first day of Autumn today and it seems fitting that my tastes have strayed a little from colour and moved towards black and white.

It all started with these rugs I bought from Ikea. I wanted to change the natural sisal one over to something a little cosier and softer for Noah. (that's my excuse!)




I am loving the black + white stripes with the black floorboards and the white walls. It makes the little spots of colour pop even more!

I also couldn't resist buying this b+w chevron mug from Woolies,to use as a vase. It looks perfect next to the lightbox.


And I found myself dressed in b+w today. I'm co-ordinating with the cushions! Black jeans and a dotty top from Trenery :) Cushions from Freedom.


Now I'm just about to have a little bit of brownie and vanilla ice-cream. May as well keep the theme going! ;) Do you every find yourself surrounded by certain colours? (or lack of them like me!)

  3. I'm loving all the black and white in your gorgeous home Simone! I was on the Freedom website this morning actually looking at cushions. I love your polka dot one. And I bought some Trenery jeans last week too... SOOO comfy - I got dark denim and navy blue but am thinking of swapping the navy blue for the black ones... That Woolies mug looks fab, especially with those beautiful flowers in it - do you know what they are? x
