Home Etc #120

Aaaah happy Home Etc day!

We’ve seen some lovely new bloggers linking in over the last few weeks. My cohost Lins has been on a real mission to bring fresh blood into our little community. And, as a result, we’ve been treated to some fab posts; both linking in here, and over on Instagram.

I remember someone once saying that Home Etc was a bit like an online interiors mag and it’s so true. It’s lovely to go through and have a browse. The things that people are doing to their homes are just fabulous.

Take last week’s favourite post for example.

Favourite Home Etc Blog

It’s from Jenny who edits the blog Seasons In Colour. She won a coveted Amara Interior Blog Award last year, for best colour inspiration, and it’s easy to see why.

Her blog is a veritable treasure trove of colour and full of tips and tricks to create a lovely home.

She shared an IKEA hack — always a favourite for me.

I once turned a shoe-rack into a bathroom storage bench and gave a tired old IKEA chest of drawers a little bit of a face lift too.

Jenny took a couple of humble PAX wardrobes and — with a little help from some gorgeous wallpaper from Cole and Son — turned them into something spectacular.

It’s no secret that I love IKEA — I even wrote an ode to them once  — so it makes me really happy when I see things like this. It just shows what you can do with a little bit of imagination and flair.

Well done Jenny and welcome to our little Home Etc community! Your name is in the running to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor  Laura Ashley.

For anyone wishing to share blog posts in this week’s linky, have a little read of our house rules.


1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.

The Twinkle Diaries

2) You may link up to two posts — new or old (sometimes the old posts are forgotten about, so please dust them down and show them off; we’d love to read them!)  — but no more than two posts each week please.

3) Please be kind enough to comment on your HOSTS’ POST which will always be the first entry in the link up — plus a couple of others. Blog hops only work if you’re as generous with your comments as you are at sharing your posts.

Please be sure to tweet —@twinklediaries  or @BooandMaddie — with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and Lins or I will retweet (sometimes both of us if you’re lucky)! ;)

As Lins and I will be sharing hosting duties now, just one favourite post will be chosen each week. Then at the end of the month we’ll choose an overall winner. This lucky blogger will receive a £20 voucher from our fabulous sponsor!


Talking of which !

Our Monthly Winner

We’ve had so many amazing blogs linking in recently — and some worthy weekly winners — but I think my fave overall was Meera, who blogs at Arty Home with her gorgeous bedroom makeover.

Well done Meera! You win a £20 voucher from our lovely sponsor, Laura Ashley.

Thanks so much everyone for linking up all your fabulous posts.  I look forward to reading more of the same this week.

Lots of love,
