H&M Home

Late last year we heard about the H&M home collection and I was incredibly excited at the time, then I admit it fell off my radar until I went onto Shop Style the other day to look at H&M Clothes and it was there. I was mesmerised to say the least and went on a rampage of favouriting everything. The H&M Collection is divided into four distinct styles: graphic (bright mod patterns), colourful (wild prints and patterns), natural (whites and taupes), and classic (clean-cut style with a nautical edge). Shop my favourites below.

Tips for Entertaining

I am always on the hunt for new content and inspiration to share. Magazines, blogs and Pinterest are my best friends when it comes to this. Sometimes I am looking for something specific while others I just stumble upon something that speaks to me. This post is a culmination of both those things. I was searching for entertaining tips and inspiration for my next dinner party and came across the charming blog, A blog named Scout and found the perfect party inspiration. 
I have paired this with a few of my entertaining tips. Let me know what rules you stick to when entertaining friends, I would love to know!

Nightstand Alternatives

Design rules are made to be broken and it's refreshing to see people stepping outside of the box and getting adventurous. While pieces of furniture are made for a specific purpose or space in a home that doesn't mean they cannot do double duty. I recently read a piece on Domaine Home which shared nightstand alternatives, the list included armoires, dressers, console tables and desks! I love the idea of a desk especially for small spaces with limited room for a dedicated work spaces. Below is some design inspiration and decorating tips on how to incorporate this piece of furniture into your bedroom. Shop some of my desk picks below.

In this colourful bedroom this nesting desk is the perfect size and design style for the space. Add interest by mixing it up and using a chair in a different finish or from a different design period.

See below three avocado recipes which are not only quick and easy but healthy too.

Studio Living in Maui

Though my style and taste in interiors has evolved over time I have always had an appreciation for a well decorated small space. This studio tucked away on the isle of Maui filled with modern, vintage and earthy elements is exactly this - well thought out and decorated. I instantly fell in love with it when I saw it on Pop Sugar and still feel excited about the details of this carefree space. The studio serves as both a home and workspace for interior-designer-turned-Pandeia-founder Kelsi Vande Velden.
