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 ;-)

What do you think? Have you started to introduce a touch of Pink to your home? Check out my Pink Pinterest board from some amazing interiors too

Loaf Love

One of the hardest things about our house renovation has been living without a sofa. Honestly it has been a real struggle for the last four.whole.months. It is something that you just take for granted when you have one, but when you don't; woah. Living without a sofa means that your bed becomes the place you do everything, from watching TV to eating breakfast (ok so the fact we don't have a dining table plays into this a little too).

So you can see why I was just a tad excited to make the journey down the Victoria Line to Loaf.com's new Battersea showroom, or Loaf Shack, to order the sofa which has been the result of about 2 years in research and planning (a sofa is a big investment - you have to get it just right, right?!).

I decided to plump for the Pompidou in a gorgeous linen fabric and the count down has begun for it's arrival. I have to say, I am glad I went to the new showroom with a clear idea of what I wanted because the range is just fabulous and the new showroom is totally seductive...



 Laid out in a great warehouse style room, most of the range (although not quite all) is laid out in room mock-ups in a vast array of colours and fabrics. Computers are dotted around in case you need to refer to the online site for specifics or to mock up your favourite style in different colours and samples are hanging up nearby so you can get a good look and feel before making a decision. I spent about an hour draping my favourite fabrics over different pieces of furniture, so much so that someone actually thought I worked there. *time to go home*

SO many fabrics so little time 
All of them are also available in little swatches so you can take them home to mull over before making a decision
The range is displayed in various sizes and colours for inspiration
My favourite section of the shack though was their 'Take Away' section which offers accessories to buy there and then, something that you can't do on the website as there is usually a few weeks wait. The range includes gorgeous throws, cushions, candles and bed linen. The linen bedding bundles are so dreamy - it was hard to resist but something I might just add to my Christmas list (wishful thinking!). 

The bed linen in soft hues and natural fabrics
Super cosy throws

Bath salts, candles and crockery mean you can live loaf even if you aren't in the market for a sofa
Finally the beds and mattresses...

Great selection, ranging from the traditional to the minimalist
Zzzzz
Definitely worth a trip if you are nearby!
