Black & White Stripes - Guest Post

We are vey lucky to have the lovely Amy from Milo and Mitzy guest posting here today.
I know you'll love her, so enjoy her post. And don't forget to check at the end of the blog post where I will name the winners of the Little Artist and Candybox giveaways.

It is an absolute pleasure to be with you today as a guest blogger for Vic here at Cush & Nooks. Cush & Nooks was one of the first blogs that I started following a few years back now. Vic does colour to perfection. I on the other hand do love colour, however black and white in the home gets me every time. This love for black and white is evident over on my blog, Milo and Mitzy. I love mixing black and white with raw wood, concrete, textiles and other materials. 

Today I have chosen to share some images featuring black and white stripes. Like me,
I know that Vic is also a big fan of stripes.

Black and white stripes, it doesn’t matter how they are used, fashion or interiors, prove extremely eye catching. I find myself constantly drawn to black and white striped clothing on the racks and a black and white striped rug or cushion gets me every single time. You can find a similar rug here or similar bed wear hereMixing stripes with other patterns such as geometric patterns or spots is a clever and cool way to use stripes.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration today and thanks for having me Vic.

Thanks so much Amy. And now, drum roll please! The winner of the Little Artist giveaway is Briony McDonald. And the three lucky Candybox winners are Amanda Crane, Kylie Small and Danielle Graham. Congratulations all of you. Please email me asap with your delivery address and I'll pass on your details so you prize can be organised. If I don't hear back from Briony within 24 hours, or Amanda, Kylie or Danielle by the end of today, I'll have to re-draw (we want to get the Love, Love, Love candyboxes sent out for Valentines Day).
