I have to say i love to visit heritage venues……i find looking at wallpaper and interiors always inspires me. I had such a pleasant day at Dunham Massey today so wanted to share with you some inspiration i took from it. My favourite room was the bedroom below…Role on the Spring i can`t wait for more heritage venues to open!
Gosh what an inspiring weekend! If you made it to the textile fair….wasn`t it amazing!? Below are two french magazines from the 1930s….there are patterns and all sorts of exciting things inside too. I thought I could have them framed and looking at them would send me into a daydream….
Victorian lace motif….
1950s hair clip to brighten up a dull day…..
a french linnen pillow case in perfect condition….the perfect pillow for breakfast in bed!
The day ended with carrot cake…what a perfect day. I bought a beautiful paper craft punch and judy which i would love to reinvent as a workshop (i`ll share that another time).
I hope you had an inspiring weekend!
I have been working really hard and decided i needed a day of inspiration….and gosh it was a perfect day and just what i need to spur me on in my own work. I had never been to the parsonage before, so that was a real treat, but to see Su Blackwell`s beautiful book installations was AMAZING! I turned to my friend and exclaimed i felt sick and she knew, because she felt the same, it was through excitement! I was interested in how much the heritage venue had allowed her to alter. I am finding myself up against lots of challenges like not being able to fix anything on ANY walls( blu tac was refused), whereas Su Blackwell actually stapled the original Bronte bed!! I don`t how she has managed it but it looked amazing and i have been inspired by it all week so thankyou Su- I am envious- if only i could use staples!
My favourite room was the Bronte playroom, where Su turns the stories the Brontes made up as children into beautiful book installations.
