Eggcited about Spring

Posted on March 31, 2015 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Has Spring sprung where you live? Sun is not shining yet but the mood is in the air...Can you feel it???



We are eggcited about this time of the year because of...

More daylight- It’s frustrating to turn the clock ahead an hour at first. But it’s really nice to have the extra daylight. It makes it feel like so many more things are possible each day.

Colours- The grass is brilliantly green. Flowers are blossoming in every color. The sky is blue!

Weather- Ok, it's not warm summer but you can just go out with a trench. And all that cold, gray winter misery turns into an instant memory.

Birds- chirping outside the window... Most cheerful melody ever.

Easter- Holiday time to spend with your family, yehiii

What is your favorite thing about this season? 


From London with love,
Anahí

Attractive Opposites

Posted on February 19, 2015 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Hello there!
Today's gonna be about home dècor tips. Obviously the choices you take for making your house a more homey place depend on your taste, your interests and your profile as a person. Eg. If you are a creative person with an eye for detail that loves design, your home will give that feeling or if you are a traditional person, functional and looking just for comfort, for sure that's how your home is going to look like.
As Coco Chanel would have said " An interior is the natural projection of the soul".

The first thing I analyze when somebody asks me about their home is their preferences:

Colour vs Neutral?
 

Modern vs Old-World? 
 

Scandinavian vs Mediterranean?
 

(Images taken from Pinterest)

But for me this should be like a cocktail, is all about the perfect mix and the accurate right measure of each ingredient. Small touches can turn a place unique. Nostalgic, retro, contemporary or exotic pieces can be found on our lifestyle shop

If you would like a personal consultancy for your home, get in touch with me to hello@anahicollection.com
You can see some of my projects on Houzz .

Happy Chinese New Year!

5 Basic Rules of Design everyone should know

Posted on January 21, 2015 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Hello there,
today I'm gonna give you a unique gift: 5 basic rules (or tips) to make your home look homey. Everyone should know this and if you already know it, then make it happen! 
I think it's important that you feel cosy at your own place. This is what you need to create a great atmosphere: Art - Books - Photography - Flowers - Candles

1. ART: "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home". Art fills space, gives atmosphere, creates feelings, personalise place. 

      

I know a well-known visual artist that does commissioned paintings for privates (and companies). She lives and works in London and is specialized in abstract paintings in all dimensions. Maybe you've already heard her name - Anahí Rodríguez :) To check out her work have a look at: www.anahirodriguez.com 

I wanted to mention that we'll add soon a new section on our shop called "Atelier" where you'll be able to find different paintings and artworks for sale.


2. BOOKS: "Book lovers never go to bed alone". Reading makes you good. Reading enhances smarts, reduces stress, gives analytical thinking, improves your vocabulary, memory and writing skills and helps to prioritize goals. Books make a home (shelves, coffe table, library, etc).

    


3. PHOTOGRAPHY: "Pictures are memories frozen in time". They are the best way to remember and share those important moments of your own lives. There's something about glimpsing the special moments, grand and mundane, of people's lives. They help make a house feel loved and lived in (Frame them!).

       


4. FLOWERS/PLANTS: Flowers make us happy. They are life and they do much more than beautifying a place. They bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room. They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere... Buy flowers just because and you'll see.

    


5. CANDLES:  Soft lighting from decorative candles can really set the mood of a home, whether it’s day time or night time. They create a relaxing and welcoming ambience with a romantic touch, don't you agree?
    

I hope you find this post useful. Enjoy the rest of the week.


From London with love,
Anahí

The Kilner is back!

Posted on December 16, 2014 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

We're almost there... 10 days to Christmas!!!! Looking forward to spending some quality time with the family.

Remember that you can still place orders on our shop until the 22nd of December if you want your gifts to arrive on time before Xmas Eve...!


This last weekend we had our traditional Xmas dinner, we invited some friends over and we had an enjoyable time. We prepared a very festive ambience with delicious food, crackers, gifts for Secret Santa and of course Mulled Wine couldn't be left out on such an event! Luckily we have our own Kilner Drink Dispenser (they're NOW back in stock) so we prepared this signature drink to serve it with style.

  
I want to share with you the recipe I used and my friends can confirm that it's just perfect (I took it from Kilner's Blog), I hope it inspires you:

The taste of Christmas, a festive drink that will leave you feeling warm and mellow.

- 1 part red wine
- 1 part lemonade
- 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 3 teaspoons of nutmeg
- 2 table spoons of brown sugar

Pour all ingredients into a large pan and warm on a low heat.
Do not boil.
Once the drink has been warmed add to your drinks dispenser and enjoy next to a roaring fire :)


 
 
If you don't fancy Mulled Wine you can always do Apple Cider or Cranberry Punch!
*** And just NOW you can find it with 10% OFF at ANAHI Collection 
 

 

From London with love,
Anahí & Peter
