Thrifted Sitting Room


I hope your weekend has been lovely.  We have had snow, sleet and sunshine this past few days!

Thrifted sitting room

The light was lovely earlier, so I took some snaps in my thrifted sitting room, after some faffing with my new (but old!) cushions that I picked up this week.  I am very mindful nowadays about what items I pick for my home.  It has taken years of slow gathering and layering to create the home it is today.  When I see something that I love, I know it will fit in perfectly.  The very definition of slow, sustainable interiors.  I love this little corner with it’s soft, muted tones.

An open studio

The bottom two photos are from the Rosehip in the Country open studio that I went to on Friday, in Suffolk.  The snow was coming down hard, but I couldn’t resist taking a snap of this beautiful door with it’s hellebore wreath.  I picked up the silvery velvet round cushion which is in the top photo, plus lots of other bits which I will share soon.  Jenny, the owner of Rosehip, has the most beautiful aesthetic.  Time worn pieces and textiles with a rustic touch.

My other find this week, is the oblong floral cushion on the sofa in the photo above, which I got from James & Joanna, who have a beautiful shop in Harleston, Suffolk.  They gather and curate gorgeous vintage lines, florals and ticking fabrics, and create cushions, lavender bags and lampshades from them.  I saw this cushion and knew that it would fit in perfectly in a number of places here, it might end up on my bed.

Coming next week

I did some avocado dyeing yesterday with brilliant results, so I will share some photos of that with you next week!  and in case you missed my last post, you can see it here.
