Oh so pretty

Today I’m sharing some gorgeous styling with you, by the talented stylist, Selina Lake. I love Selina’s style, whether it’s bright and colourful or softly pastel, there’s always a touch of whimsy, femininity and playfulness.

I thought I’d share some gorgeous, bright images today and save the softer ones for tomorrow, so be sure to pop back tomorrow and if you’re feeling a bit impatient, you can visit Selina’s website, blog or Flickr page straight away!

I asked Selina to share a few things with us…

One place you find inspiration…
I find inspiration from all the Interior magazines I buy, I have loads of old copies of Elle Decoration & Living Etc which I’m always flicking through!! I also get inspired after visiting flea markets or antique fairs.

One styling tip for one’s home….
Choose pieces which you LOVE, to furnish and decorate your home, and treat yourself to gorgeous fresh cut flowers as often as possible.

Favourite thing to do on a sunday…
I love spending time with my boyfriend Dave, on a sunny sunday we often walk down to the river Thames, where there is a lovely riverside cafe with outside tables and chairs, we sit and read the Sunday papers/magazines, drink hot chocolate and watch the boats go by for ages.

Thanks so much Selina!

    The last time I commented on this post was 26 August. Now I'm heading off to an art store made in heaven, in Berlin, to get the supplies to recreate that painting of the bright pink flowers. Hopefully by this evening it will be hanging on the wall in our lounge, which has already been pepped up by all the South African goodies that I brought with me from Cape Town!
