Welcome to Edition 2 of #MyHomeStyle, where myself and Emma from ‘Life at the Little Wood’ go through all the wonderful Instagram and blog photos that have been tagged, showcasing some great home and interiors gems! As I write this I am currently suffering from flu-induced sinusitis (10 days of illness now folks, 10 BLOODY DAYS!), and feel pretty dire, so apologies for any rambling or typos here. We’ve been so chuffed at the response to this fun photo project, and been spoilt for choice with regards to what people are showing us- there are some very stylish IGers out there
What’s nice about this project is that I hope it’s inclusive for everyone- you don’t have to have a massive show home or loads of dosh to get involved. We’ve seen a wide range of different homes, as well as fab finds, both new and old, plus some great makeovers. It’s great to see what floats people’s boats interiors-wise, whatever the budget.
Thinking of interiors this week, what has been on my mind has been new beds, children’s wallpapers, and I’m on the hunt this over the next few days for some TG Green loveliness for
myself my shop, so expect some posts about these soon! What have you been coveting lately?
There were so many fab photos this past fortnight, it really was hard to narrow them down, but I’ve picked 10 that caught my eye for different reasons. Keep your pics coming- if they’re not featured one week then they might well be featured another time as we want to include as many great ones as possible.
Here we go…
First up is KA, of @lifeasourlittlefamily who with the help of her husband has transformed this gorgeous dresser with the help of some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint- what a beaut! I’ve never actually used ASCP, but I’m itching too, and there’s a chest of drawers in our bedroom that I think could do with a lick of some once we move into the loft.
Totally green with envy over Lucy’s (@lovelucylu) amazing charity shop find! The bowl on our scales has started to crack so I would love some new ones like these. Sidenote- the purple tulips in the background go SO well with the creamy yellow!
The lovely Chloe (@chloegraceb) has come up trumps again this week with this fabulous ‘shelfie’ in her son, Arlo’s, room. I adore the pirate-themed name banner
There is SO much to love about this picture of Emily’s (@brickdustandglitter)- the lighting, the flowers, the accessories…but mostly I am coveting these mugs and getting myself to Matalan! At 2 quid each apparently they are a complete bargain and I will be buying as many as my kitchen cupboards can hold!
I nearly fainted when Esther (@Insideoabout) told Emma and I that she was given this gorgeous Chesterfield sofa for free from her folks a few years ago- they definitely sound like my kinda parents! Really liking the wire baskets used as shelves here too, a massive ‘Tick VG’ from me.
Now Beth (@bettyandthebumps) says she finds it hard to get past the fact that the previous home owners put floor tiles on the kitchen walls, but from where I’m standing I think her kitchen is ace! I think all her lovely prints and accessories definitely detract from anything dubious tile-wise, and it looks stylish and homely. I’m always a sucker for a decent-sized kitchen table too, as I love it when people can sit and chat
and drink wine whilst someone’s cooking.
Katie’s (@mummydaddyme) gorgeous framed prints have really transformed her hallway, and the bottom left-hand one is especially apt since Katie hosts ‘The Ordinary Moments’ over on her blog every Sunday!
Rachel (@theordinarylovely) wins the prize this fortnight for the best-styled picture, with this awesome St David’s Day display in her home! You can’t go wrong with daffs to brighten the place up, and the white board means that she can constantly change up her wall- I LOVE it!
Claire’s (@clarina1985) photo frame display is so pretty and personal, and I’m really feeling this blue wall colour in her bedroom. It’s not something I would have considered before, but I actually really like it as I reckon it gives off a really calming vibe, yet still injects a bit of colour. Good work!
and finally…. I’m a fan of most things Ikea, therefore I am really coveting this cheery napkin holder of Kara’s (@innocentcharmschats) – now on my wishlist for when I next trek over the Croydon store. I’m praying it’s not an old buy of hers!
So what do you think of all of these beauties? Any favourites? Don’t forget to hop over to Emma to see what she’s chosen this fortnight. Have a great #MyHomeStyle week, and looking forward to seeing more interiors loveliness!
