Having previously lived in a pokey one bed flat, moving into house with a spare room AND a walk in wardrobe (sounds posher than it is, but still, very grateful for the storage space!) has meant I was able to totally minimise my bedroom and what was in it. Before the walls were packed with shelves, piled with boxes full of things gathering dust. Now they're just gathering less dust in a cupboard instead under the guise of 'oh, it's my summer stuff in storage'. So this left me with some wall space to play with and ever on the quest to create relaxing surroundings, I wanted to put up a few pictures I had taken last year in the New Forest - it's a place that has a profound effect on me every time I go there, I feel like I can exhale like I've never exhaled there. They are images that when I look at them, transport me back to that moment.
But frame buying is difficult, I can never find any I like and that will do a minimal room justice. Then I remembered Workshop used to have some gorgeous fair trade glass frames from Nkuku and I hunted some out online. I'm really pleased with how these look and they're perfect for little peaceful corners or smaller walls. These are the zinc ones but brass ones are available too. They're also available in a range of sizes and you can try Pinterest for some more inspiration.
Nkuku also do some amazing other homewares, I'm particularly in love with their tableware. So good!
*NOTE* I actually had this post lined up for next week and something else lined up today because the makers of these beautiful frames have a promotion on at Achica today - go get before they're all snapped up!
