There have been two key flavours on 'the gram' this week.
First - objects of desire. Second - all things Mother's Day. Flowers, feminine shades, odes of appreciation, and wonder women who are designing, renovating, creating, or running businesses as well as their families.
On a side note, maybe we're just really due for a shopping trip, but the platform seems to be especially packed with colours, textures and prints that would fit right in at home, right now.
Let's take a look at the week that was.

Like the arid grasslands of 'La Pampa' the brand by the same name beloved by Kiwi blogger in Perth, House of Eramiha, features the shades of sunset on earth (and we love it too).

The colour temperature of these gorgeous posies by Thanks a Bunch in Nelson could warm you down to your bones and basically, we wish they were being sent to us instead.
Now this is how one brings personality to a contemporary kitchen come dining area, with contemporary light fittings that are more halo than chandelier. Nice one Inlite NZ.

You know we're all about making our own floral wreaths, but how about this divine fabric incarnation by The Flower and Willow World?

Anyone else hand painted grout sealant on to their tiles when they looked like this?!? 😫😫😱 have spent three hours already and am just over half way!! 😂 #kitchenistidy #realreasonitookaphoto #itsnevertidy #reno #cameronsfirsthome #whitekitchen #tiletroubles

It might be Cara Maree Cameron's first kitchen renovation, but her commitment to hand painting the grout sealant is definitely paying off.
Plus, how chic is that matte black sink? Great choice.
THE THIRD DIMENSION
Probably my last #gouacheandpaper for now ✨🌿 what do you guys think? Update: Guys, I am really overwhelmed and flattered with your response to this piece! It was the last one I was planning to do from this range but your response has made me change my mind! Thank you ✨🌿✨

Something about this mixed media artwork by Christina Viscu instigates dreaming.
It's a piece that would pair well with other trends of the season, such as velvet furniture, indoor plants, and artisan metals in contemporary shapes.
PRE-MOTHER'S DAY MOMENT
She told me mascara was smudged under my eyes and when I told her I wasn't wearing any, she thought for a second and said "oh mum you must be tired" after a quiet period she came to me, flowers in hand. Together we put them in a glass jar, that small gesture made all the tired worth it!

Begin with daphne and jasmine in a glass jar, add an adorable story, one gorgeous daughter, and you have this cute and clever little snap by Jess of My Sister's Dress.
Charcoal, marmalade, cream, a hint of baby blue and that botanical green we all know and love.
It's an unusual but totally restful bedroom combination by Chloe of Along Came Wolfe.

This Beauty and the Beast themed kids' party set up by A Little Confetti is so well designed, we're a little miffed we weren't invited.
