I love using "found" or foraged things from Nature in our home and cottage decor.
Thrift shop finds also factor in when it comes to things I have added to our bungalow...often they are unusual or somewhat quirky.
I have also been known to pull the car over when I see a free pile on the boulevard.
I am not particularly talented when it comes to interior decorating.
But I do know what styles I do like and what I feel comfortable adding to our surroundings here in The Humble Bungalow.

Chunk of coral

I love using basic whites...
vases, trays and dishes.

Lovely soap...a weakness of mine is to buy quality french scented soaps.
Silver accents are peppered throughout the house.
My all time favourite candles...a splurge I know but so worth it.

I love this book
by Tricia Foley
Her simple style inspires me and I like to pick this book up from time to time and get re-energized about culling and curating what we have in our home.
Tricia's ideas help inspire me when I am out perusing the thrift shops.
I tend to look closer at the "qualities" or the "bones" of a piece and am able to evaluate whether it is something that could add interest in our home.
Do you have a certain style when it comes to your home decor?
Have you ever hired a professional interior decorator?
What style do you admire?
Hope you have a lovely weekend...
the sun is shining here this morning and the day is going to be hot!
I plan to mix up a batch of lemonade and keep hydrated.
