Home Etc #105

1930s Home Makeover SE London

It’s all looking a bit moody and masculine round here at the moment. Last week I visited the Kitchen Aid Experience Store in Central London. They were showcasing the new black steel collection and we were treated to appliance demos and lots of black food. Now at #projectselondonhome, we’re in the middle of a black and white mini bathroom makeover so I’ve been sourcing lots of black bathroom accessories. For someone who likes colour so much it’s a real departure from the norm but actually I’m excited to try something different. Far from being safe or dull, I actually think black is incredibly chic.

More on our bathroom makeover in the coming weeks  – we’re definitely going to finish this project #famouslastwords

Now, onto our favourites from last week’s #HomeEtc link up, thank you so much to everyone for joining this fantastic community!


From the tiles to the colour to the style, Louisa’s bathroom makeover is amazing. Feeling ever so slightly jealous at the moment.


I’ve been following Donna’s extension progress since the beginning, especially as we’ll be doing something very similar as and when we eventually get round to it. Their new extension looks incredible and it’s clear to see is giving Donna’s family the space they want and a wonderful additional quality of life.
