Hello to...Floral Tapestries!

Due to being in the final weeks at university, I've recently had my head buried well deep in the books, but with a new addition to my bedroom I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a blog post! With the English weather finally brightening up, I think there's no better way to lift a room than with some florals and I think this floral tapestry stool is a perfect addition to my dressing table. Although a tapestry fabric can be quite heavy, I think the floral design makes it perfect for spring/summer. This particular stool was a real find, costing just over £20 on ebay, it did require lick of paint but within a couple of hours and a tin of farrow and ball 'old white' paint later, it was all ship shape. If you're not after a piece of furniture however, it's really easy to bring this trend into any room with some beautiful tapestry cushions. There a quite a few around at the moment, but the best selection I found came from '' which has a whole section dedicated to this trend, and with prices starting at £8.50 you could get carried away! Or if you're feeling braver than me and want to get creative, why not make your own...

Hours searching on eBay finally pays off...

...and even managed to co-ordinated my jewellery to the furniture!

All of the beautiful floral  tapestry cushions featured are £15 from
