Home Etc #93

Dartington Crystal Florabundance Tulip Vase

Since Jess and I were last hosting the clocks have gone forward and we’ve had some beautifully warm days. Spring is here finally and I have a sneaky suspicion we may have some garden-focused posts linking up over the next couple of weeks.

It’s always my favourite time of week because I love being inspired by all your home and interiors posts. As someone who struggles to find time and motivation at times to make any progress with our home renovation, it’s thanks to you lovely lot that we keep struggling on. There’s nothing like seeing beautiful homes to make us realise that we’ll get there one day!

So without further ado, it’s time to reveal who our favourite posts were from last week.


First we have Becky from Spirited Puddle Jumper, a fellow south-east Londoner and amazing home renovator. We loved her very kind and detailed finance breakdown of her gorgeous kitchen makeover. As someone who wants to build a new kitchen but is way too scared to even take the first steps, this was so helpful in providing a realistic expectation of the funds involved.

We also loved Gaby from Life in Eight’s beautiful Scandi-style bedroom makeover. Her choice of delicate pastel colours is just gorgeous for spring and to be honest, when the entire world is being matchy-matchy dark colours, it’s refreshing to see something so clean and airy. This would definitely be a tranquil haven for me to enjoy at the end of the day so I’ll happily pinch some ideas from this when our bedroom update happens.

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