Having a stags head adorn the walls of your home has become ever more popular in the last few years, such as the animal friendly plaster Deer head from Nordic Bliss, or a beautiful  print  from Bodie and Fou, both of which I love.  Which of these would be your favourite?

2. Plaster Deer head  by Nordic Bliss £73.90
5. Check out that handsome beast, Stag Cushion by Rockett St. George £47.50

Lovely displays to inspire.

 This time of year the shops are busting with decorative ideas, and whether you totally embrace the Holiday festivities and have every inch of your home covered  in tinsel and glitter,  or would rather be catching a plane to a far away place and relaxing with warm sunshine and a glass of something tropical, one thing is for certain,  even if you just like to ring in the changes with some seasonal  decoration,  you will be sure to find some great inspiration out there for the home.
Ransoms Garden Centre is a favourite place of mine to visit locally,  they certainly have a very talented bunch of stylist up there, from the room displays to the painted furniture, the displays all year round never cease to amaze and inspire me.  I just love a stroll around at the weekends, taking it all in, then we  pop on over to the tea rooms for something scrummy and slightly naughty for the waistline to eat.
Personally I  love the Winter Lodge Room display, all those cosy cushions and fur throws, just the perfect place to snuggle down in, and the mint green and silver display could also be inspiration for a wedding table, (we are currently thinking future weddings in our house..or rather my Daughters are, although neither of them are actually engaged)  Any of these displays inspire or give you decorating ideas?

All these photos and more can be found on the Ransoms Facebook page here

Link love and a quick catch up..

1| 2, 
Well hello there, I have finally come out from under my pile of samples, scale drawings and mood boards that I have been busy creating for my interior design course.  I'm in desperate need of a break from it all,  if I'm not thinking about colours and paint samples,  I'm dreaming it, so for a little break I'm here blogging about...what else...? why  interiors of course!  What can I say....I'm obsessive.   So here are a few photos and  links for you to peruse at your leisure, though I can't recall where I found photo no 2..sorry. Found it.

1. Justin and Colin's recently launched soy candles look lovely
2. love the industrial feel of these zinc box drawers from Ebury Home and Garden
3.  Stationery treats from Lollipop , I'd like this rubber stamp set please.
