New Marvel HQ: The Living Space

November 9, 2014

Kris Atomic New Mavel HQ -6470

So here is the new living and dining space! Thoughts? Do you like the palette i’ve gone for? I wanted something relaxed, that would be a great place for a movie night but also for a meeting, so basically casual/cool but presentable. Somewhere that wasn’t insanely colourful but that would always have room for something new. So as you can see the main colours are light & dark grey, white and black. Plus lots of different wood textures from the floor to the tables to the stools. I think it really embodies a clean and neutral aesthetic, one that has SO much potential for future interior developments and seasonal moments like Christmas or Easter. Are you making over your living/dining space? Send me your Pinterest boards, i’d love to see the styles you’re going for!

So whilst researching I came across quite a few websites, so here is the first batch of them, more are to come. They all have different and really cool things, some require more time rifling through the pages than others but overall I think you’ll find them all pretty helpful!

Oh and here’s a funny little video of me picking some furniture from Dwell for the living room!

VLOG: PFW Apartment

November 7, 2014

So here’s a little vlog on what I got up to in Paris with Tamara, Shini, Sarah & Noor. I some how overlooked the annotation next to Tamara and put the wrong blog name, but she is definitely from The Glam and Glitter 😀

I didn’t film it all but you can see the fun little tour and lunch we had with My Little Box Paris, as well as a little wondering around the city! I shot this vlog with a Panasonic HC- V550 that I was sent to try out, it was fairly easy to use, I realised I hadn’t formatted the memory card for the device, as it seemed to need a certain format, so be sure to try it out a few times before filming a load of content. At £284.99 its not bad for a camcorder, the quality is awesome, its shape makes it super easy to move around and capture from and back footage. It’s definitely one to try for all of you budding film makers/vloggers :)
