Simple flowers in simple vases are sometimes all that is required to make an ordinary area extraordinary. With their misty, milky colours in shades of greens and blues, these vases from Berry Red are just stunning and any flower combination would look great in them.

I love the simple mix of traditional red geranium and the white floribunda garden rose, put together in a vintage look green vase. Simple but with an unpretentious feel to it, the way flowers should be.

Here the mix of garden blooms, including a rose, cow’s parsley, campanula, and a poppy, makes for a charming display housed in a selection of blue and green opal vases.

Summer Shopping at Liberty’s

No visit to London-town would be complete without visiting one of London’s greatest shops, Liberty, one of the capitals oldest department stores. Situated in a Tudor building since 1875, this iconic store has a magical atmosphere that sweeps you up the minute you enter. This summer, their collection is as beautiful and inspiring as always.

My favourite is to enter the shop through the middle door, entering into a little florist with gorgeous creations, setting the mood for what’s to come.
