Home Etc #87

Welcome to this week’s Home Etc ;  hosted by Jess — my very good friend from the blog Mummy Of Boy & Girl Twins — and me. Bringing you the very best home and garden inspiration from the blogosphere.

Home Etc Favourites

First favourite from last week came from Lizzie who blogs at Marmalade Pie.

She shared her gorgeous sitting room with us. Such a lovely room with a modern-vintage feel.

I love the pattern and colour she’s used. So bright and fresh.

It’s so cheery and welcoming. And makes a lovely change from all the stark white interiors that are so prevalent on Instagram these days.

Another favourite came from my lovely friend Rachel, who writes the blog The Ordinary Lovely.

She’s always used her pegboard as a styling tool and has shared some gorgeous ideas over the last couple of years.

Last week’s post was no exception. I love how fresh and clean it looks. So simple and modern; and the perfect way to welcome in the spring.

Well done girls! Your names are in the hat and you’re both in with a chance of winning a voucher from our lovely sponsors Laura Ashley.

Thanks so much everyone, for joining in, Jess and I love seeing what you’ve been up to!

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’ POSTS which will always be the first two entries 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.

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

Finally, Jess and I will pick one favourite post 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!


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