Look of the week: Accents of Blush

As you know, blush pinks are having a moment in interiors right now and I have to say it is a look that I absolutely love. I do think it’s a hard colour to get right – anything too sugary and you won’t get that Scandinavian, directional look but something more like my bedroom circa 1996.

What you want (or at least what I think you want if you are pursuing the pink en vogue right now) is a pink which sits somewhere between salmon and beige. Although that description probably doesn’t sell it to its best advantage, the colour is somewhat of a neutral and yet, treated properly, can look so glorious.

This lifestyle shot from Camerich, a gorgeous furniture retailer, sums it up perfectly. The pared back, minimalist furniture, black accents and striking wall art are totally brought to life by the pink accents. That chair might literally be the perfect pink colour. Scroll down for some items on the high street to help create this look at home…





  1. Faux potted money plant, £95 – Cox and Cox
  2. The ‘Jane’ coffee table from Camerich, £823
  3. Cactus art prints from Art.com from £9.99
  4. The ‘Noble’ armchair from Camerich, £730
  5. The ‘Pebble’ from Camerich, £423
  6. Standing lamp in grey from John Lewis, £180 


There is currently 10% off at Camerich too so if you love this pink chair as much as I do then perhaps a little treat to yourself is in order? It ends on the 18th September so you still have time to talk yourself into it ;-)

Wish List: This week's top 5



I am obsessed with pulling together little mood boards together at the moment - they are so useful to help you decide what you love, what you thought you liked but then later decided you didn't, and also to see what works together.

With a home referb project on the go, the seeing what works together part is the hardest thing because I love so many styles that settling on one is really tricky, as is establishing an eclectic look without it looking kind of insane. So mood boards are where it is at.

Here are a few of the products I am in love with at the moment and why...

Firstly, a practical solution for my bathroom which they just started tiling today *hurrah* is this gorgeous mirror from Rose & Grey. Finding a simple black mirror for the bathroom has been surprisingly hard. I didn't want chrome, and with copper being so huge at the moment, those were the only two options I could find in the right shape and size. This is perfect though so i'm glad I persevered and didn't settle... I am thinking some mini succulents on the shelf or maybe even some vintage perfume bottles I already have - just to finish it off nicely.

This clock from Made.com is a favourite of mine because it is so simple and classic but with a definite Scandi vibe which I think will feel right at home in the Kitchen. The glass jars will too... just one of the amazing new things from the range from Isle Crawford at Ikea. Seriously check it out... lots of natural materials and cork, which it turns out, I love.

Finally, you might have picked up on the fact that I am having a pink velvet moment... mostly inspired this incredible chair from Mia Fleur. I mean what can I say. Everything about it... it has that mid-century glam, almost LA vibe which just oozes fabulousness and I really never use that word. I think the dusty colour and the gold legs also really work well against a monochrome scheme which could easily be tied into a wider living room interior using these complimentary velvet cushions from Made.com to pull it together.

What do you think? Have you spotted any amazing products recently that should be on my next wish list?

Swoon for Michelle Mason and Claire Gaudion

Happy Monday all. I don't know about you, but today really feels like the beginning of Spring. The sun is shining, there are blue skies and now the clocks have gone forward, I might actually see some daylight both sides of my commute. To celebrate, I wanted to share two gorgeous new pieces of furniture I am drooling over from a new range of designer collaborations from Swoon Editions.

Designer and creator of bold, iconic prints, Michelle Mason has teamed up with the brand to re-imagine the brand's Benny Ottoman in a bold blue textile which would be perfect in any lounge, and will be available from 13th April.


Textile designer Claire Gaudion's incredibly eye catching remodel of Swoon's Carnaby chair is one of my absolute favourite pieces from the whole Swoon range. The colours and geometric pattern perfectly compliment the mid-century design of the chair perfectly. I might just be first in line to but this treasure when it launches on 20th April.


More collaborations are due to launch in the coming months and by the looks of things, it is certainly going to be a collection to watch out for.

Swoon Editions: Soho Pop-up

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a snoop around Swoon Editions' first pop-up shop in Soho. I have been a big fan of the online retailer for a while now, often browsing the site at lunchtime planning a fantasy new scheme for my lounge. However, seeing the products first hand, in the flesh, really brought home the quality and artisan nature of them which I have to say was very impressive.

The collection seems to have something to offer everyone, from the shabby chic French-styled pieces to the Scandinavian inspired chevron rugs and mid-century inspired side tables. Particular favourites of mine include the Karla armchair, the Joey bar stool and the Shimla quilt (in fact I may have to put an order in right now for that one!).

The soft furnishings or 'Accents' as they are called on the site are gorgeous - a real highlight for me

The quality really stands out and this sofa, retails at just £549 which is incredibly good value

The showroom featured beautiful postcards of the entire range

Each product has an ethical background with Swoon working directly with artisans from various parts of Asia

Love the boudoir vibe of this chair - perfect for a bedroom and costs just £299
If you are looking for a new sofa, armchair, desk or rug I would really recommend checking them out. Such great value for the high quality you get, and also so assuring to know exactly where the products in your home come from. There aren't that many retailers out there who can offer great value whilst remaining true to their values so big love from me to Swoon.
