There is a lot to be said about this time of year. I often think that March can't quite make its mind up - with crisp, cold mornings surrounded by ice, the warmth from the sunshine if/when it chooses to make an appearance and nature just beginning to bloom again. It's always seemed a rather confused month to me. I do however, think it's a great time to clear away the clutter and have a refresh in your home.
If you've been reading my blog recently, you'll know that I'm currently in the process of redecorating our living area. Whilst that project is ongoing, I'm also trying to 'spring clean' other little areas of the apartment. The dressing table in our bedroom has been a disaster zone since we moved in, so it's been on my list for a long time, to sort it out and freshen things up.
As you may know, I'm a big fan of minimalistic design, however I don't think it's realistic to have everyday items hidden away and a nuisance to get at. Don't get me wrong, I hate clutter - but a few necessities here and there help to not only add personality to a room, but also make your life that little bit easier.
Today, I've teamed up with Copper + Solder to help give you some ideas of how you can combine beauty products with beautiful products (see what I did there?) and still maintain a well-considered and simplistic interior.
Established by Katie Figiel following a degree in Textiles, Copper +Solder create unique homewares for modern and relaxed interiors. Through a combination of simplistic design with an industrial feel, her products allow you the freedom to fit them into your home, however you chose.
In only takes a quick scroll through her instagram to realise that Copper + Solder isn't just about the products - it's a lifestyle brand, helping people achieve a look or style for their home.
My personal favourite is the grey tea light holder. I love surrounding myself with candles, especially in our bedroom, and this little guy slots in perfectly. The contrast between the vintage marmalade pot and the more contemporary, concrete works really well in the space.
I think it's really important to have a combination of everyday necessities and special items on a dressing table. Dried flowers from an important occasion, framed artwork and candles add a calmness to the room and help to show the personal touches which make the space unique.
A stunning black and white plate is perfect for keeping your jewellery together. The Dalmatian trinket plate is one of the more versatile products in their range; with a sturdy mix of concrete and a protective cork base, I think this piece could work really well on a coffee table with a cluster of pillar candles, or in a kitchen to stack the salt and pepper. Every item has a unique charm and quality, which only comes from being handmade - each piece truly is one of a kind.
I'd love to know what items you have on your dressing table - do you find yourself reaching for particular products to freshen the space? Feel free to comment below!
