Feather Your Handmade Nest

'Little by little, the bird makes its nest' - French Proverb

We have just moved into a new house and there is so much I want to do to make this place feel more like home. It's overwhelming trying to fix everything at once, so I am consciously trying to slow down and enjoy the process. My vision is a cosy, welcoming sanctuary filled with earthy natural tones and lots of handmade touches.

I'm coveting a collection of beautiful Etsy finds which come together in my mind to create this calm bohemian family home. It's all about natural fibres, woven textiles, clay, rattan, linen and all those perfect little handmade imperfections. I'm looking out for organic shapes, candles and plenty of texture to bring a year-round feeling of cosiness.

Kids rooms and baby nurseries feel so peaceful and nurturing styled with natural colours and textures. Look for rattan, linen, wool, macrame and nature-inspired play mats and mobiles to create a natural haven for your little ones. Enjoy browsing through my ideas, and I hope you find some inspiration to feather your own handmade nest.
