Curate / Light + Detail

Minutiae / the small, precise details that makes one unique; the finer points and subtleties

As a visual person, I am very much aware of the little things. I have a deep appreciation for details, and they make my heart sing. (I know that I’m definitely not alone on this).

I especially love beautiful light and intricate detail in architecture. Here is a photo essay of some of the light and detail I’ve snapped over the last little while…

The Edit / 01.

Hello there

I’ve decided to start doing The Edit over here on the blog to share things I’m loving with you. I haven’t quite decided how often I’ll write them yet, but we’ll see. First, let me fill you in on what’s up over at Miss Artsy-Crafty HQ.

So, you may have noticed my absence around here, namely because finals were just crazy and in between studying and sleeping, there wasn’t time for much else. Its now summer holidays and some fun content is coming soon! (Don’t forget about this fun DIY though!)

Also, I’m working on my card range which will be launching in early 2017! Final formatting, printing quotes and packaging is under way! I can’t wait to share my brand and products with you!

You may have noticed that my site is now at, which I am very excited about too!

Now, onto The Edit:

Bedside Table Styling


I’ve decided I’m going to try writing about something different, because I’ve had a bit of writers/makers block, and so I’ve been feeling uninspired to write about the topics I usually do.

I find myself constantly changing up the style of my bedside table in my room. There are two reasons for this. The first one is, I love so many different styles that I always want to experiment and change things up. The other reason is that I get visually bored really easily, so I feel the need to change the small details in my room if they’ve been a certain way for too long. In this post, I’ll be sharing some ways that you can style your bedside table. They’re all a mix of my favourite styles. I find that I revert to a mix of the ‘the reader’ style and ‘the minimalist’ style.

The Maker


For this style, I’ve used an interesting art print and the plant to add interest. The paintbrushes make for a cute display, as well as the magazines and books, which relate to crafting and creativity.

The Minimalist

I’ve used a basic art print, a studio-style lamp and plants to make this style cohesive. The monochromatic books and ceramic ornament also tie in with the plainer colour scheme.


 The Explorer


Whilst still sticking with the studio lamp, I replaced the art print with some Instax photos. Also, I placed a travel journal and Instax Camera on the bedside table to add interest. The plant just ties together with the plant-life in the photos above it.

The Reader


The final style is for the person that loves reading and just wants reading material at their bedside. Piles of magazines and books can look cluttered, so try styling them with plants in a neat pile for a more cohesive look.

I feel like all of these styles are very achievable and easy to pull together. I hope you are inspired to spend a few minutes styling your bedside table into a way that makes you happy!

Also, Happy Spring! (South Hemisphere people x)
