Home Etc #113

Songmics Storage Ottoman

Have you noticed the evenings drawing in slightly? I still see August as the height of summer but the truth is the longest day was two months ago. The mornings now have a slight dew on the grass and a damp smell in the air. I’m determined to get a few more home improvements done before August really kicks in. A makeover for our dining room perhaps. Ready for the cooler days and cosy evenings ahead.

Do you have a favourite season? Mine is definitely summer but since it looks to have disappeared, I’m excited to get on board with the changes and seeing what you lovely lot do with your homes in autumn this year.


Thank you so much to everyone who joined in last week and engaged over on Twitter! Our favourite from last week was the fab post from Suzanne at Inside, Outside and Beyond who shared her interview with another one of our regulars and faves, Morgan from Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat. Showcasing other bloggers is just one of the ways I think interiors bloggers in particular are so lovely!
