The Re:Mark: New Home, New Start
So it's official: I’m in my new apartment! The move from North to East is over, and it’s finally time for me to enjoy my new surroundings.
First things first: working from home has taken on a totally new meaning, like sitting on the roof terrace soaking up the shimmering early morning sun with a fresh pot of coffee, radio on and only my trusty laptop for company. I assure you, it’s absolute bliss! I even found myself starting work at 7:30 this morning just so I could make the most of it. It reminds me of my recent trip to Florence, where my beautiful hotel room, just yards from Ponte Vecchio, had its very own terrace over looking a walled garden. I enjoyed my coffee alfresco then, too. Anything that involves sunshine, caffeine and a little writing and I’m there!
The roof terrace makeover hasn't happened yet, but I’ll definitely be taking cues from Alex Stedman and her Frugal Study Space when it comes to creating the perfect workspace ambiance. With her inspirational mood board and copper accessories to die for (all Primark of course), it would almost be enjoyable to sit for hours with writer’s block! Still not enough to tempt you? Then check out our Copper Rush accessories: the metallic trend is taking over homeware...
Now that the weekends full of packing, cleaning and constant coordinating are behind me, it’s time to start having lazy weekends at home.
And by lazy weekends I mean lying in bed way later than you’ll admit, perfecting the loungewear look and making sure your surroundings are super cozy. But when I say loungewear, I don't mean un-chic or slobbish. Think silk menswear pajamas or a white cotton shorts and ribbed tank combo. In fact, why not flirt with something a little more risqué? Allow me to introduce our new lingerie collection: a spaghetti strapped, lace-paneled dream! Think embroidered triangle bras, lace bodysuits and multi-strapped bralettes. Underwear's the new outerwear, after all...
A new place means I have a perfect excuse to indulge in new bedding, cushions and throws to create my perfect haven. Warm neutrals are my natural go-to: you can’t go wrong with soft gray tones, rich creams and textured whites for bedroom and living room, perhaps with a delicate vase of pastel peonies to perfect the look?
Coffee and reading are tops on my fave weekend indulgences list – I feel hours of blog-reading, column-writing and one soy latte too many coming on... You’ll find me either on the sun-drenched terrace or in the living room with the windows thrown open wide to let the world in: I fully intend to soak it all up and enjoy!
