How colour coding will please your eye.

I am a colour coding activist. My husband rolls his eyes at me when I lay our grocery shopping at checkout organising it by colour. And even if I may come across as OCD, I do it whenever I can.

And wherever I can: the lingerie drawer, the glass cabinet in the dining room, my child’s toys in his room… And I would like to convince my readers to try and do it somewhere in the house and see the difference.

Even something as boring as a raw of detergents can be eye-pleasing:

Detergents out of reach but not out of sight? Colour code them!

More delicate and pretty glasses deserve to be organised in a gorgeous display cabinet, just like this:

And last but not least, a classic: colour coding for your library. My library is white so it offers the perfect blank canvas for the colourful books to pop:

Give it a try! Any attempt you would like to share?

Contemporary bathroom styling

In this bathroom with dark wall and floor tiles (concrete look, chocolate colour), the white vanity is the stand-out piece and where the attention focuses.

I styled it in three ways.

ONE, objects are grouped at both sides of the basin. On one side perfumes and lotions, displayed on a mirrored tray, on the other side a bunch of white freesias and a potted orchid (not in bloom at the moment, just green leaves).

TWO, I added some colour and a provincial touch grouping lavender flowers in a manson jar, and leaving just the orchid leaves on the other side.

THREE, This is a more minimal styling, not so practical for everyday use of the bathroom. It’s good for a guest bathroom or for putting a property on the market. I used white Singapore orchids in a Murano glass vase, a small jar with volcanic pebbles, and a beautiful big candle in the shape of a horse chess piece (by Seletti). I hung a long Indian tassel to the door handle to add personality.
