5 things to check out this week (2)

I’m about a week into freelance life. It’s taking a little getting used to, but I’m sure things will settle into place before long. The toughest part so far has been motivating myself when it’s been sunny outside, not a bad complaint in the scheme of things really. Anyway despite the challenges of my newfound working situation I’ve managed to come across some lovely things this week, which I thought I’d share with you.

1. Palette feed

First and foremost I found this really lovely blog showcasing interesting colour palettes. I know that there are plenty of colour palette sites around, but this is one of the nicest I’ve seen. Definitely worth checking out and bookmarking if you’re after some colour inspiration.

2. Monologue London

Wandering around Shoreditch yesterday I came across this amazing furnishings and accessories store. It’s more on the pricier side of things, possibly eye-wateringly so, but it’s incredibly well curated with some beautiful products.

So obviously I hopped to their online store immediately. And look what I found!!

Does this dining table remind you of something? It’s very reminiscent of my dream desk which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Instant love. If you live in London, you can go check Monologue out on Redchurch Street.

3. White as a pop of colour

This is a great post I came across on Apartment Therapy. I’ve been thinking a lot about using black as an accent colour in mostly white rooms. This post highlights rooms where this has been switched around and white becomes the accent. I have such a love for dark rooms, the white contrast is very eye catching. Totally mind blowing.

4. Modular storage

Working so far for my clients, I’ve really come to appreciate the importance of storage, especially in London where rooms tend towards being smaller rather than larger. I love this modular storage solution I’ve found, but unfortunately for me it’s based in America. Good news for you, if that’s where you’re based. Nice to take a look at anyway!

5. The good times experience

Finally, nothing really to do with interior design, or design. I like this little project that Ian Sanders has been doing. He’s making a list each week of all the good times. The point of the project being to notice things. I’m definitely inspired. Read more about it here.
