It was International Women’s Day last week and this week I just wanted to focus on 10 Beautiful Rooms that were either styled by women, photographed by women or designed by women.

Diving into an unusual colour combination this week but one that is about to gain momentum I feel. First up are these two gorgeous rooms which featured in Elle Decoration UK.

Time for our weekly dose of interiors inspiration with 10 Beautiful Rooms. These are not necessarily rooms that you want to live in or slavishly copy but are designed, instead, to inspire and, well yes it’s Monday, delight.
