Last week I had an opportunity to attend the Ideal Home Show by Zoopla at Kensington Olympia.
I was very excited as from what I heard, last year’s show was great with many interior inspirations and a buzzing atmosphere. Well, sadly I barely found something I really liked! Of course, I’ve seen some great arrangements or great armchair designs but overall the presented arrangements simply lacked SIMPLICITY. You know me well enough by now not to be surprised with this comment.
Living room arrangements were overloaded with the decor and three seat sofas with massive cushions. Oh, and don’t forget about flower vases that were way too big. The only thing I found really well arranged was one black and white bathroom with my favourite ladder towel rack and really stylish black sink, and one bedroom arrangement with a really nice side table and creatively attached light source.
My suggestion for the merchants showcasing? Gather more brands which are focused on simple design, and I’m sure it will gain a more modern audience, as I felt it was targeted only to people in mid-40s. Nothing wrong with that, but I personally felt let down.
But this is just my personal opinion. Did you attend the show? Have different feeling? Please, share it!

What is Rustic style?
Rustic interiors prove that everything comes full circle. They have a rough-hewn charm that appeals to us in this era of slick technology and manufactured materials.
You won’t find here machine polished and shiny materials. Rustic style describes a style with an emphasis on natural, unrefined elements.
Rustic colours? Mother Earth!
Many dark greens like khaki, forest leaf, all the browns and sometimes oxblood and very dark blue. But the main one is of course rustic wood colour.
The main material used in this style is unrefined wood, many times people decide to ‘DIY’ their interior, using pallets for example. But apart from wood, hand-stitched fabrics play an important role. Black and green checked throws, linen cushions and embroidered elements.
This style is not for everyone, but if you like warm spaces, somewhere where you can read your 100 books and drink tea, rustic style is perfect for you.

I remember I was obsessed with London and (yes I was planning to post some pics of the city today), but what can I say its any 15-year-olds dream to live in a place like this. However when I eventually did move here I realised that London wasn’t for me and I developed a longing for a quiet peaceful countryside.
As you know I’ve been to Norway and since my visit I just cannot get that amazing place put of my head with its picturesque landscapes, amazing home decor, deep rich forests covered in snow and obviously food to die for! But to finally get to the point I just wanted to share some unique home decor ideas.
As I am moving to the new house soon, be prepared for more home decor posts 🙂
