Monday Moodboards- Back to Nature - 4th May

This week's Monday Moodboard is 'back to nature' inspired in the designs, colours, patterns and materials. There's a mixture of glassware, linens, cutlery, candles and a few extras that I've generally fallen in love with. On the theme of nature, I've been having a go at some natural dyeing of my own this week - using avocado skins and stones I'd saved up. The result was a gorgeous dark salmon/pink colour and it's inspired me to look further into using other botanics. For anyone looking for a simple introduction to the process, try this book on Amazon by Rebecca Desnos- recommended to my by a friend.

Cutlery - I've been looking for bamboo cutlery like these listed below for what seems like FOREVER.
I'm still yet to find a set I can afford and have all alerts set on Ebay so as soon as I find some, I'll update this page with more options!

Candles - I feel like I've been posting about these candles non-stop but I truly am obsessed with the beautiful handmade candles from Wax Atelier. These green tea celebration candles are so delicate and thin. They are much thinner than a normal candle holder so worth thinking about how you will style them and stand them up- perhaps in a vessel with some sand/grains or small stones.
