Home Etc #121 – Home and Interiors Linkup

Tala LED Lighting

I’m so excited to say that after a little hiatus with projects around the house, I am BACK ON IT! I think it could be a result of being ill all last week and getting bored out of my mind. Whatever the reason, I won’t enquire too closely. All I do know is that carpenters came last Thursday to put some picture rails back in our third bedroom and not only did I get round to painting them at the weekend, I decided to paint the room as well!

It’s not finished yet (of course, this is me after all and I take eons to do anything) but I’m sure there will be a grand unveiling on the blog at some point. It does feel good though to be getting on with things once again so hopefully we’ll keep the momentum going for a while!

So now on to our lovely link up and before I announce last week’s winner, we’d just to give a friendly reminder to everyone that this isn’t an opportunity to dump links and scarper. Caro and Jess worked so hard to build up a lovely little interiors community and it used to be very reciprocal with everyone commenting on each other’s posts. That seems to be happening less and less now, so please only link up if you intend to comment on the other posts – it only works if everyone is generous with their blog love and we really want to provide a supportive platform to do just that.

Right, off my soapbox now!


The favourite for last week was Morgana at Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat, who has styled her home beautifully using homewares and accessories from Scandi brand Jysk. I think the gorgeous Scandinavian influences are here to stay for some time yet, especially for those of us like me who are more pale and interesting rather than dark and broody. The look goes beautifully in Morgana’s new build home don’t you think?

    I feel for you – I was all sore throat, sneezes and sniffles myself a couple of weeks ago. It must be the change of season. Hope you’re feeling better! ❤️
