Where's it from? What colour are the walls? The RVK Project House Guide.

July 31, 2017

I love receiving messages and comments from you on Instagram. Literally love it. But nearly all of them are asking one of two things. Where is it from? And what colour is it? So I thought I'd put together a definitive guide on all things house to direct you to instead to help others at the same time. I myself love using Instagram for sourcing/inspiration, it's so much better than flicking through website after website, scrolling is the best form of shopping these days so I hope this is helpful! I'll split it room by room with photos followed by links/info.

  1. Great post! Thank you! Did you have to buy any additional pine doors? We've tried so many reclamation yards but they don't have our size!
    I'd also love to know where you got your seat cushions from in the sitting room? Thanks so much x

  2. Hey Rebecca! In your kitchen you have nice textiles underneath plants etc on the surfaces/tables, are they tea towels or table runners? I'm looking for something nice for my dining table but don't know what to look for - thank you! x
