February Mags!!!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the second edition of Mags! If you missed last months Click Here!!

Last time I mentioned that this month I am going to be looking at ‘House & Garden’ and ‘Elle Decoration’, Instead of sticking to my original plan, I was drawn to ‘The World of Interiors (WOI)'. The others did not seem to catch my eye the way WOI did.

The BEDroom!!!

People always wonder why their bed at home doesn't look as comfortable as those on tv, or magazines or show rooms. They wonder what is it about their bed that is so different to those ones. The first step is people need to stop thinking of a bed as a place to sleep and more as the centrepiece of the bedroom. Your bed should make a statement!

Below are a few steps that can be taken to achieve this look.

Room of the Day! - My Dream Office

It's no surprise that I want to be an Interior Designer and as this is my chosen profession, it is important that everything about me shows this. I see myself dealing with multiple projects in this office! There are a number of reasons I am particularly fond of this room, the main reason is how the décor is extremely eye catching; I love how luxurious it looks, with the metallic glass desk and the gold with a hint of black chandelier. I love how simple but tasteful the curtains are, I feel it works as the room itself is fairly busy. I love the patterns on the office chair and the picture frame behind it, it truly makes a difference to the room! What really makes this office stand out is all the finishing touches on the desk. There are picture frames, ornaments and vases with a variety of flowers! I am extremely blown away by this room and I am hoping to have an office like this one day!

Lots of Love

Mirror Mirror on the wall!

Mirrors add glamour and elegance to every room! The reflection of the décor of the room really shines out of the typically glass coated surface. What makes mirrors even more interesting are the detailed bespoke frames, which can range from standard wood to metal, seashells or even diamonds- it really gives an alluring addition to the already decorated room. Below are some pictures that show how a mirror can not only change the dynamic of a room, but also be the selling point of that same room.

What a little girl wants!

 When I was little, I was such a girly girl. I loved pink, dolls, nail polish etc! I have not really changed much since then, I am still very much girly, but I have toned down a bit. I was going through my decorating app and came across a few things I would have wanted as a little girl, and somethings I still would not mind having now- but for my age.

The first picture is of a baby girls room. The theme is very light and girly. The main colour is pink with floral patterns on the curtains and bedding. I think the flowers keep the aura of the room quite simple and calm which is what a new born needs when they come home. I really love the lamp shades, I feel it adds a beautiful touch to the room, especially the fact that there are many of them.

Room of the Day! - Navy Blue

I was speaking to my dad about how it would be nice to paint one of the rooms in our house navy blue and he explained how dark and unwelcoming the room would be! I had to stop for a second to think that maybe he had a point, but I definitely knew exactly what I was talking about. Yes, navy blue is dark and it could definitely make a room look dull, but whatever colour that is used with it will really make a difference. The picture above shows what I am referring to- using white and cream brings out the blue in a refreshing way. What I was thinking instead, was having striped wallpaper- white and navy blue, but the picture is just as good.

All about Lacquered Walls!!!

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has taken out their time to go through this blog! I am so overwhelmed. :)If you don't already follow @sainteriors on Instagram, please do; it shows my decorating style and what I am inspired by.
 The whole point of me doing this blog is for me to express my love for décor and to learn more about it.

So a few days ago I posted the second picture below on Instagram just because I thought it looked pretty cool. I loved how shiny and glossy the walls were and I loved the whole black and white combination. I received a comment from someone saying "The Lacquered walls are gorgeous!" I will not lie, but I had no idea what Lacquered walls were, I had never heard of it x_x!

21'st Decorations!!!

So here they are!!! This was such a fun night, everything went according to plan! The decorating itself took under an hour as I had a lot of people helping me put everything together. However there was a lot of planning that I had done before hand and we were organised for the day.

My previous post 'Heading in a new direction?' (Click Here)described the process of how I put the decorations together.

All about purple!!!

Purple is my all time favourite colour just because of how royal and elegant it is ! It also has a 'girly' appeal to it, which I can admit I am a bit of a girly girl! Because purple is such a bold colour, it is important to mix it with light shimmery colours to bring out it's elegance. As you can see from the images above, purple is mixed with neutral, natural tones and it's gorgeous! 

Lots of love
