About How I Rent

  • A corner of our home, filled from floor to ceiling with textile inspiration books. This framed embroidery was inspired by the primula Harlow Carr hybrid from the gardens at @rhsharlowcarr I loved how tall they stood around the gardens in all their colourful splendour. I hope we can visit #harlowcarr again soon I miss these inspiring places. #harlowcarr #hybrid #books #textilebooks #cornerofmyhome #howirent #flowers #applique #floraldesign #textiles #nature #fashion #inspiredbynature #englishgardens #gardens #primulaharlowcarrhybrids @rhsharlowcarr @the_rhs #rhsgardens #colour #blooms #tallblooms

Firstly, I apologise for the angles in this picture but I had to stand out of the door and into the hallway to take it, sorry. ⁣
Secondly, notice anything different in here?😂⁣
Most people relax on a Saturday but apparently not me. In all fairness it only took me a morning so not too bad but I’m not finished yet. ⁣
⁣
I knew I wanted to put some colour in here, I guess it’s who I am now 🤷🏼‍♀️ but I wasn’t entirely sure how. ⁣
Along came my partner in crime, Sarah @homeandhaus (I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her) with some Pinterest pics and here we are. I think I like it. What do you think?⁣
⁣
I even managed to cram an hours of sunbathing in this afternoon too so today’s been alright 😂⁣
⁣
Does anyone else love to be creative? I find I’m happiest when there’s a paintbrush in my hand 🤔 especially at the moment when there is literally nothing else to do 😫⁣
⁣
Have a good evening amigos 🧡⁣
