Welcome to Thrifted Abode.
About the blog
‘The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.’
Like lots of people I have long been saving for a house, car and most recently a baby, meaning I often have very little fun money to play with – tricky given my love for fashion and interiors. This dichotomy between sensible living and the love of beautiful things has given me a passion for recreating high end looks and trends at a fraction of the cost.
I wanted to start this blog to share my love of interiors with all of you out there who also love Pinterest, interior magazines and aspirational instagram accounts. Who have big interior dreams and realistic budgets.
But who am I – other than an interiors nut? Well, I am half french, grew up in London and now currently live in sunny Brighton with my husband and my little boy. I have worked in Marketing for over 10 years and have been lucky enough to work with lots of amazing brands including the RHS, the Barbican and The Shard. I still love telling stories – which is what marketing really comes down to – and obsessing over content. Which is why I love this blog and pouring over Instagram where there are endless opportunities to communicate with like-minded folk.
I am always thrilled to work with brands that I am passionate about and I have been lucky enough to work with some great ones to date including Matalan, Boden and Benson for Beds. I have included some examples below of just some of the content I have created as part of a long term partnership with Boden.
