Creating JinksyHome

Beauty has always been a massive passion of mine and will continue to be, but recently I've been focusing on myself, my family and creating our JinksyHome!

We are slowly but surely redoing our home (with my calming grey and white theme), room by room, and I have created a new Instagram account to share our journey and all things home related.

I thought it was important to share with you all some of my thought process and feelings towards creating a space that is right for me and my family. I believe your home and surroundings has a massive reflection on your mood and productivity. Thats why I'm focusing so much on creating myself a space that I feel will motivate and encourage us, much like the Danish way of  'Hygge'.

The idea of Hygge as I'm sure you know is a creating space, an atmosphere and experience of feeling completely relaxed, cozy and safe. For me its about making my home a space where I can feel in a calm state of mind and happiness whatever the weather.

Candles for me I find is a lovely way of setting the mood of the room, so it's so important to make sure that my candles are as safe as they can be. I recently learnt that certain type of wax in our candles can be extremely dangerous for the room and ourselves. So Soy wax candles are 100% the way forward, we must make sure the candles we buy are natural and non-toxic.

I've recently found the fabulous company that is Soy & Joy, who create just that ...

They have the most stunning, simple and classic candles like mine above, with beautiful motivational slogans but they also do many more which are sassy with the edge of girl power!

Fill your house with things that motivate you, quote prints, sayings or maybe cute little Sass & Belle coasters like I picked from my 'Pick your own' TreatBox* recently ...

And I also absolutely adore my quote plaque in my kitchen with an amazing saying from one of my favourite inspirational places to shop for my home Perfectly Lovely Interiors.

So true!

I have found so many amazing shops while searching through Instagram, I find it on of the best places to search for inspiration for my home. I also love that some of these places to shop are just small business and I love supporting them. Here are some of my favourites and a just a few of the bits I have from them in my home!

Bluebell Row 



Use code SUMMER20 (in July) for 20% discount*.

I find some supermarkets are fabulous places to pick up cute bits and pieces for the home, like Asda or Tesco. But Sainsbury's Home seem to have some incredible items right now, I've recently purchased some lovely dinnerware which I will share on JinksyHome soon, a gorgeous grey lantern (as seen in pictures above behind the Bluebell Row stool)  and this stunning unit ...

I've added on these cute little bears I purchased while on my holidays in Devon, such a fab addition to my grey and white theme don't you think?

And lastly in creating my perfect home, space and atmosphere I find filling my house with greenery to be really quite perfect! I have weekly deliveries from Freddies Flowers (see blogpost of how to get your free bunch), which are really rather stunning and add the perfect touch to my home.

And as I'm not over good at keeping plants alive succulents are the way to go for me.

I was recently kindly sent this stunning mini succulent garden* from the kind people at Blossoming Gifts who have the most stunning flowers, plants and more for the home.

I would love to know some of your favourite things to creating your Hygge space?

Speak soon. Karen x JinksyBeauty x
