Hi there, I’m Cynthia Thompson (formerly Lawrence) and welcome to my blogspot where I share some savvy interiors inspiration and solutions for the home. As a lifestyle journalist for women’s magazines by profession and interiors geek by pleasure, I decided to combine the two and create a pad (no pun intended!) of ideas I’ve loved.thumb_background-pic_1024

If I’m not mood boarding or ‘pinning’ on Pinterest,  you’ll find me browsing the web, magazines and countless apps for new inspiration. For me, the home is more than just bricks and mortar but a cosy sanctuary for well-being, family and enjoyment.

I don’t follow any latest trends, I just love eye-catching things that could work well in our home. I’ve learned that no matter how big or small your home (or budget) is, you can still create your ideal space with your personal touch of spice…

Decor loves

3D stone tiles, wood panelled feature walls, clever space saving ideas, sheepskin rugs, cosy reading nooks, lanterns, restored fireplaces, upcycling, industrial light pendants, copper accessories, ‘hacienda’ woven baskets

Decor loathes

Cluttered spaces, cheap plastic flowers, lino, themed-rooms overkill…with too many matching furnishings!

All opinions my own!

Thanks for dropping by.
