2016 was the year of the Scandi style, the comeback of copper and marble and the year we brought the indoors in. If you love Instagram as much as me you have probably seen these in your feed on a daily basis. Love them or hate them, those were some of the key trends of 2016. But will they still be around this year?  With interior trends constantly changing this is something difficult to predict but I am sure some of them will still be popular in 2017.

Here are the top 5 interior styles  I think we will see a lot in 2017:

Velvet

Velvet textures and fabrics in rich jewel tones like teal, emerald green and magenta will be a great hit this year.  It’s all about the luxury, and giving an air of opulence to your home. It’s the time to be bold and out there with your decor choices.

I am very excited about this trend, I am a colour lover and I think we will see some beautiful decor pieces in the next few months.Interior Trends

I am not sure you, but it seems like the older I get the faster the time goes! I can´t believe 2016 is about to end as it seems like it was only yesterday we were saying goodbye to 2015.

2016 has been a great year for my blog. When I started it 18 months ago I wasn´t sure where it would take me or how long I´d keep it for.  The past 12 months have been truly amazing, I´ve had the chance to attend lovely events, like Homebase Christmas partySolan de Cabras launch in the UK , Mothers Meeting at the Outnet and  Estimation Nation Baking event with Smart Energy UK.

I´ve also had the chance to work with amazing companies, like Epson, The Co-op , Westfield  and Wayfair -to name a few. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I´ve had and for the trust the brands have put in my blog.

These below have been my top 5 most popular posts of the year.  I have listed the links below in case you fancy reading in the new year.

Afternoon tea is one of those British traditions I love. Eating lovely sandwiches, drinking endless cups of tea and best of all, eating lots of cake.
A couple of days ago we were invited to have afternoon tea for two at Moggerhanger Park. Moggerhanger Park is a Grade 1 Listed Georgian Historic House set in 33 acres of parkland and woodland in Bedfordshire.  After extensive refurbishment Moggerhanger is now hosts  weddings, conferences and other corporate events. It is a beautiful place easily accessible from London.

This is the time of the year when we all want to feel all snug and warm in our bedrooms. When we want to spend lazy Sundays in bed, having cups of tea and enjoying reading books while we are nice and cosy.

Adding textures, layers and lighting will help you achieve that cosy Christmas look. You don’t need to spend a lot of money, just add a few accessories and your room will be ready for the festive season.

Cosy-Christmas

Today is my birthday!  Yes, having a birthday at this time of the year it’s not great. Everybody is busy with Christmas parties and in a Christmas frenzy so a December birthday kind of gets lost in between all these. Fortunately, the older you get the less important it is to celebrate. Later on I will be having a bit of cake and a meal out with my boys and hopefully open a present or two.

To celebrate my birthday and as a thank you to my readers for all their support in 2016 I am giving away this gorgeous necklace in beautiful blue colours. Perfect to wear in the new year.  All you need to do to win enter via rafflecopter below:
