Home Etc #109

Home Etc Link Up Bedroom

Happy Wednesday everyone! Although with a bittersweet tinge as this is the last time Jess and I will be sharing HomeEtc hosting. Most of you will know by now that Jess is stepping down from co-hosting. Her fabulous blog has opened up so many wonderful opportunities and work, we’re delighted but will miss her very much.

So after today, myself and the lovely Caro will be taking it in turns to host HomeEtc each week. We’ll of course continue to comment on and share all your posts so please do carry on with linking up. I’ve got into quite a little pattern now of settling down on Friday nights if I’m not heading out to catch up with everyone’s amazing projects.

Our current main project – the mini bathroom makeover – is very nearly done so hopefully all will be unveiled very soon. It does feel like a lot of effort for something we’ll be completely changing in the near future but at least it looks so much better for now. More soon!

Now, last week’s winners are:


I’m ever so slightly obsessed with metallic colour schemes at the moment (who isn’t?!) and Steph has done an amazing job transforming her gorgeous work space. It just goes to show that noticeboards may be functional but they can also be incredibly stylish.

I read Fionnuala’s post with disbelief – I thought places like this only existed in books or films! What an absolutely blissful location for a wedding and we’re so happy that this special day was shared with our readers.

Congratulations Steph and Fionnuala — you’re both now in the running to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor, Laura Ashley.

Now it’s your turn, please do join in with any home/upcycling/DIY/craft/interiors-related posts.


All we ask is that you follow these 3 little rules:

1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.

2) You may link up to two posts — new or old — but no more than two posts each week please.

3) Please be kind enough to comment on your HOSTS’ POSTS which will always be the first two entries in the link up, plus a couple of others.

Blog hops only work if you’re as generous with your comments as you are at sharing your posts.

Be sure to tweet us @booandmaddie or @JessSoothill with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and we will always retweet. We will pick 1 favourite post each week then at the end of the month we’ll choose an overall winner.

This lucky blogger will receive a £20 voucher from our fabulous sponsor Laura Ashley. Don’t forget to keep using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram too! We just love to see your Instagram photographs and remember next week your host is Caro!
