interior inspiration

 



hey @jacquemus












It's been a while but I wanted to ease back in with a little interiors post. As I'm back home, I've been lusting after having my own space ~just gen z things ~ Pinterest has really become a bit of a problem for me. I seem to spend hours on it?

At the moment there's a big trend for pastel colours, cow print and clouds in interiors. I've seen those foam mirrors everywhere.

Unlike fashion, interior design moves a lot slower. It feels like what is in trend generally lasts longer. Grey is 'in' and it's been 'in' for YEARS. I suppose in contrast to buying clothes, redecorating a whole space seasonally is expensive; we can't really afford to do that. TikTok has a crazy amount of influence right now with microtrends popping up everywheree. I will be interested to see how retailers interpret these trends in the coming months. 

To avoid the ramble, all I hope is that we maintain this slower pace in interior design. For now I'll be dreaming of white walls, big windows and parquet flooring.

the end of October

Amy and I after cocktails taking macbook photobooth pics on the beach. 


A lot has happened since my last blog post and those blissful days of holiday and post-holiday quarantine. I'm back home for good (for now.) It's strange because I was so looking forward to moving out but things didn't align. 

I want to start again, to talk about my plans. Uni is weird. It consists of long days staring at a screen; it all feels really surreal. I can see why imposter syndrome is such a buzz word atm. I don't have a desk either which is annoying, and I find myself more conscious of my back than I've ever been, is this what getting old is like? 

I'm guess I'm riding the waves as they come, it feels strange like a reversion into my 16 year old self; I don't have to worry about money, food or paying bills. It's a blessing and I'm grateful, but sometimes I just want to eat a bagel for every meal and have a drink at 5 in the afternoon without being questioned. But I do love my family. 

I fell into a bit of a pit, I'm climbing out now though. I want to talk about what I've done in the time I've been absent on here but honestly, nothing comes to mind except my newfound adoration for crochet (I'll do another post about this.)

It's been hard and 2020 has thrown a lot at all of us, but look we're making it out. I'll be back to posting again as autumn and winter roll in. I hope you are all ok in this transitional time,

all the best

QUARANTINE DIARIES 2.0: day four

 

I'm back to webcam selfies like before, let's be honest I couldn't keep up the photos. Quarantine isn't that interesting. Here's me with a gin and tonic. I saw a BBC article about a man who became an alcoholic over lockdown and I worry slightly about the amount I drink, but I think one is ok? 

This is also a playlist I'm adding to and listening to. I've been listening to a lot of Jack Johnson recently but I'm not sure if it fits the vibe of this playlist lol.
