Home Etc #117 – Home and Interiors Link Up

Cotswolds Distillery Tour

After a lovely little break to the Cotswolds where we walked, drank gin and generally ate lots of pub food, it’s now back to reality. And doesn’t it feel autumnal? Before we went away I was still hanging washing on the line but even though we were only away for a week, the log-burner is prepped and I’m sure will be lit very soon.

I must confess, autumn and winter are not my favourite seasons but I’m going to get on board this year and embrace the colours, the cosiness, the trends. It has to be done really doesn’t it? It’s time to enjoy living in the moment rather than wishing the months away until spring.

And speaking of that, here are just some of my favourite picks from the Home Etc tag over on Instagram, such gorgeous and calming images. Please do keep tagging #HomeEtc so that we can showcase you each week in this post.

Bedrooms are such an important place to get just right. I know that since giving ours a mini-makeover back at Easter, I spend so much more time there. We loved Suzanne’s from Inside, Outside and Beyond bedroom makeover with her tips on how to recreate that perfect hotel chic at home. Isn’t the green on her walls so gorgeous?
