Featured This Month: February 2021, Love To Be Home
Each month we handpick one talented Instagrammer and their impeccably beautiful home to be featured in our journal and on our Instagram page. We are truly inspired daily by all the talent that we see and just have to share with you. This month we bring you sleek, stylish comfort and a home to fall in love with by Donna @love.to.be.home
Donna’s home and Instagram handle holds a very poignant message and as we are spending a lot more time indoors, we couldn’t agree more that it’s so important to “love to be home”. Also as Valentine’s Day is coming up, we couldn’t think of a better fit for our February “Featured this month” because February is the month of love (and that includes love for your home!) Your home is your safe place, so creating a sanctuary filled with warmth and stunning interior that you will fall in love with for years to come, is absolutely essential.
Donna’s home is the epitome of simple, sleek comfort. Neither too warm nor too cool, Donna’s choice of muted tones makes her home incredibly versatile, which leaves her home as a canvas, which is open to add different variants of style, shades, patterns and texture. The result? A treasure trove of timeless elegance, leaving her home open to everchanging ideas and décor inspiration.
Donna is the master of creating calm surroundings that instantly relaxes us. She treats her home as a haven, which boasts a vibe of luxury and stylish features, including panelling on the walls and a sprinkle of sensational modern décor. She also has some incredibly clever ideas of how to utilise not only her décor but also her home accessories. Take our Grey & Buff Rattan Round Wicker Planter for example. During these frosty winter months, she has decided to use the basket to hold cushions and blankets for cosy moments next to her roaring log fire, which adds the perfect touch of rustic elegance to the corner in her living room.
Come spring time where she will spend more time in her beautiful garden, she will remove the cushions from the rope planter and instead plant beautiful blooms in it to enhance colour, vibrancy and fragrance into her garden.
Here’s a throwback of Donna’s garden
Donna’s love of simple, stylish modernity continues through to her garden where she has created a cosy corner and the perfect place for escapism. We love how this little corner features a very stylish modern firepit in the centre of her decking, with gorgeous wicker lanterns for a soft twinkle of candle light and rustic wicker plant pots to infuse a little greenery into this space. We can’t wait to see what our Grey & Buff Rattan Rope Planter looks like in her gorgeous garden this year! Such a perfect place to relax with a blanket and a glass of something lovely, under the stars.
“I absolutely love the rope handle effect of the planter!” It is such a lovely feature”
On the opposite side of Donna’s lounge in her beautiful white console table, she has used our Grey & Buff Rattan Wicker Cubed Storage Baskets as an addition for extra storage.
“I’ve been looking for baskets for my console for a while to store my throws and these baskets fit perfectly! They give me so much more storage in this room. I am so happy with them”
Our Grey & Buff Rattan Cube Storage Baskets are both equally beautiful and useful. They are perfect for organising the home with their strong, durable and forever stylish look. We love how their versatile shades and colour suit Donna’s immaculate living room so beautifully.
We can understand why Donna “loves to be home” because home is a place to be at peace when the world is a little off balance and a place to create comfort and happiness.
