Home Etc #95

Floral Bouquet from Wild Things

When does a long weekend not feel like a long weekend? Don’t worry, this isn’t my poor attempt at a joke but having spent 3 days over Easter painting our bedroom, returning to work felt like a holiday in itself! It’s amazing how much you can get done in a short space of time isn’t it when you really focus. Our bedroom reveal will be on the blog in the future once I’ve finished faffing…if I finish faffing!

But onto this week’s Home Etc, it definitely seems to be the case that spring brings out the interiors lovers in all of us and I’ve seen more skips and scaffolding as we drive around our local neighbourhood. We’ve loved reading your posts and here are the favourites from last week.


One of our long-time Home Etc linkers is the lovely Lizzie who blogs at Marmalade Pie. She is so creative and regularly inspires us with her simple but beautiful tips and crafty updates. Her post on decorating your home for Easter was just what we needed to get ready for the long weekend.

Our next favourite is this fantastic Industrial Inspired Interiors post from Morgana who writes over at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. I absolutely love the industrial trend which really appeals to my modern and minimalist style overall so thank you Morgana for sharing this great find!
