Tweakticky Tweak Tweak

When I started getting into interior design and making changes around the house, I was really into the whole scandi/ bohemian vibe with lots of white and neutral throughout the house. It wasn't quite working for a number of reasons, but basically our existing furniture and the colours of our rental didn't really gel with that whole look.

One room in particular that didn't work was the bathroom, the owners made a very odd choice of pale pinky taupey tile with a faint grey marble, it is awful and I have blocked out the memory of the red shower curtain that was in there when we first moved in. It really didn't work when our towels were added even after I had swapped the shower curtain for a white one. I fact I don't think I have ever shown a photo of the bathroom, except outside when I moved a bookshelf to add additional storage and maybe a pic of the faux succulents I have added to the window sill.

After working in hotels I developed a love for white towelling and linen, it looks so crisp and clean and is surprising easy to keep that way as you just hot wash with laundry soaker and it always comes out perfect. So for ten years we have always had white, white and more white, but it didn't help in our current bathroom.

But as I am learning to work with and make the best of what we have, I decided to make a few tweakticky tweaks.

So what did I change?

Who lives here?

I always wonder if there is a correlation between your exterior presentation, i.e. your clothes and your interior, i.e. your home. It's also an excuse to show you some beautiful homes of some beautiful people and combine my love of fashion and interior design so here goes.

This NYC apartment belongs to a very stylish fashion maven turned florist extraordinar.

You know you have it good when Hubs goes away on a boys trip and goes shopping for you.

A couple of hours after he landed I received a few messages that he had come across a wooden home-wares store and did I want anything….
So he picked up a few things for me…

It pays to shop around

But you don't need me to tell you that, do you?

Anyone who follows me on Pinterest will know that I have a slight obsession with hanging egg chairs, in fact as well as having them pop up numerous times, I now have dedicated an entire board to this obsession.

I'm not sure if it is because they can be hung inside or out, perfect for indoor/ outdoor flow or if they just look so comfortable. They make me want to curl up with a good book or a pile of magazines with a cup of tea or a glass of wine within easy reach and laze the time away, perhaps sneak in a little nap.

Found on

Bohemian, guitar, white walls, wicker chair

So not surprisingly I have been seeing them pop up all over the place, everywhere I go, at a range of prices.
