‘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 interiors obsession. 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.

I plan on sharing seasonal trends, regular highlights from some of my favourite interior shops (highstreet and independent staples) and some money saving tips and advice as I go.

Welcome to Thrifted Abode.
