Featured This Month: Understated Elegance
Each month we handpick one talented Instagrammer and their impeccably beautiful home to be featured in our journal. We are truly inspired daily by all the talent that we see and we just have to share it with you. This month’s “Featured this month” entrant is the elegant home of Alice @homeonhey.
Open the door to Alice’s gorgeous and uplifting home and you will find a home styled with plush neutral interiors and stylish fixtures, which are inspired by an intricate combination of Parisian and English country features, complete with soft furnishings and adorned mouldings. Alice’s home is the perfect pick for this month’s feature, with a cosy vibe throughout her home to retreat to on those rainy early autumnal days and a vibrant yet beautiful garden for those hazy Indian summer moments. We can’t wait to take you on a tour.
Neutral Home Interiors
In Alice’s bright and airy hallway, you will find a space complete with a panelled staircase, white washed frames and a neutral colour palette for the ultimate timeless design. Alice is a huge fan of adding character to her space, which is why this beautiful oak hallway unit makes for such an evergreen style, paired with Grey & Buff Rattan Wicker Storage Baskets and accessories to complete the look. We just love the colour combination of the neutral background and rusticity of the accessories, which instantly makes us feel at home.
A Parisian Style Lounge
Alice has designed a serene living room which is light, bright and airy with added cosiness from calming scented candles for gloomy afternoons, curled up with her loyal companion on her snug sofa. This room has been designed with comfort and refinement in mind. It’s everything from the featured ceiling, the classic blinds and the carefully styled accessories that makes this room so inviting and polished. To complete her tranquil setting, nothing compares to our timeless Grey & Buff Large Square Rattan Wicker Storage Basket to help keep Alice’s space free from homely clutter. Perfect for hiding remote controls, electricals, coasters or anything that would otherwise spoil this beautiful aesthetic. How fabulous does this basket look in her vintage French style coffee table? Ooh la la!
A Stylish And Understated Bedroom Design
For a clear and calm mind, Alice has created a wonderfully systemised storage design, perfect for organising all of her belongings in her wardrobe, in Grey & Buff Rattan Square Wicker Storage Baskets. An excellent choice for shoes, hats, scarves and any loose odds and ends that take up all that wardrobe space.
The pièce de résistance to any Parisian style space is a stylish chandelier, which is a must-have feature in most Parisian style homes. What a perfect start to the day, having a fresh cup of tea by candle light on an antique breakfast tray in bed, before tackling the tasks ahead of the day.
Not only does Alice have a flair for organisation but she is also a natural when it comes to styling decorative pieces with arrangements of flowers, adding a pop of colour and natural fragrance to bring neglected spaces to life. Take this display for example: Alice has filled our Grey & Buff Rattan Wicker Market Basket with the most stunning arrangement of white floral blooms which makes for the perfect statement piece at the end of her bed. Just add a cream hessian ribbon for a rustic touch et voila! This simple design adds such a beautiful centre piece and visual interest to this space.
And if you didn’t think that was beautiful enough, how about this adorable little display of sunflowers inside our Mini Antique Wash Gardening Trug? Perfect for the sweet September season.
September Garden Inspiration
And the charm of Alice’s home doesn’t end inside! The garden features a stunning new pergola with beautiful rattan seating to enjoy in the sunshine. It’s difficult to believe the transformation of this space, from a plain patio area to Alice’s own mini retreat, check out the incredible transformation here. Of course, no stylish garden would be complete without botanical vibrancy and flowers so, for added luxury, Alice has chosen forever on-trend white petunias and bay trees, planted in our charming Grey & Buff Rattan Round Rope Wicker Planters.
