White walls and blasts of colour everywhere, from artistic and design creations, this is how to simply craft some fun in your home.

These are my little circles of sunshine from Antigua to brighten up your Springtime days!

I love colour! I made lots of this and hung it between palm trees on the beach for my birthday, around the living room and above my bed.

I cut lots of circles from hard felt and threaded them together late one night while watching some old episodes of Downtown Abbey on Netflix, don’t judge me, ok?!

I hung them around the house, took pictures, had some fun. It blows in the breeze from the windows, it’s simple and bright.
