Designspiration (Take 2)

I’ve been away from this blog for quite a while now – things have been so busy what with me being away in New Orleans for a week! I’m planning a blog post on my trip to the Crescent City – I’ve taken lots of photos, done a ton of shopping and eaten my weight in food so I hope to have something up soon about this wonderful place!

In the meantime, I leave you with some more designspiration!

This miscellany of pics covers some fantastic window displays from the High Street.  Note the luscious tropical foliage of John Lewis, the kooky vintage frames of TM Lewin and the spring blues of Whittard – although many of you in the UK will, like me, be asking the very question ‘What is this ‘Spring’ they talk of?’ whilst you’re pelted with wintery showers!

An MOT garage is the most unlikely place to gather inspiration and yet I did, from AutoKare in Cambridge, which provided a superbly professional service as well as keeping me entertained with its cool décor of model cars and trucks, plus free tea and coffee, whilst I waited for my car to undergo its MOT (which thankfully it passed!)

Last but not least – my mother is a keen and talented gardener, and here are some shots from her early spring garden.  She got these fantastic flower hanging bags online and planted these pansies in gradations of mauves and purples.

She’s also been quite keen to plant different varieties of daffodils and these are her pride and joy at the moment – the deep orange trumpet and the pale cream of the outer petals reminds me happily of a creme egg!
