Maisons du Monde Copper Globe

Hello and welcome back to our #HomeEtc home and interiors bloghop! I think everyone’s thoughts are well and truly turning to Christmas now, I’m starting to see lots of festive styling pictures over on Instagram. How does the time always seem to go faster each year, I swear we haven’t even made it through summer and now the end of the year is just a few weeks away.

I’m in the middle of a couple of busy weeks with interior press shows and events but we’re heading away to Tallinn at the weekend just for a few days and then I have next week off – can’t wait to really make the most of 10 days off work. Although now I need to stick to that and not waste any time.

I keep finding so many lovely little bits and pieces for our home even though I know I should be saving for Christmas. The globe above is from Maisons du Monde and it goes so well with the copper and grey theme in our home office that I couldn’t resist. But really, I should stay off the internet and away from Paypal…

But back to our lovely little community, thank you all once again for linking up.


We absolutely loved Suzanne from Inside, Outside and Beyond’s post on ‘Are You Ever Too Old For A Pink Bedroom?’ and the amazing bedroom update for her teens! And basically, no you’re never too old for a pin bedroom – it’s my secondary colour for our bedroom makeover I finished at Easter so I love what Suzanne has done here. All the little accessories and sympathetic colours are absolutely beautiful and I’m more than a little jealous.

    Ah thank you so much for featuring my post! What a lovely surprise for a Thursday morning. I’ve just linked another one up 🙂 Loving the copper features in your picture above, also the cute little star garland. Where is that from please? Looks great against a dark background doesn’t it? Thanks for hosting.
