I travel A LOT for work (and fun) and I have become a bit of a pro at packing my life into a suitcase. For years, I would pack all the wrong things and turn up at my destination looking crumpled, with all the wrong clothes and missing all the things¬†I actually needed. Not any […]

  • Carole King - I love a good packing post. It’s always interesting to see what other people take. I think I’ve got it down to a fine art but you can always learn from others. Like Catastrophe Cosmetic – not heard of it before but now I have to try it!25th July 2016 – 5:12 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - It seriously is the best – you feel (and look) a bit odd with bluberries all over you face, but afterwards my skin feels so soft.25th July 2016 – 6:30 pmReplyCancel

  • Molly - Loved seeing ‘inside’ your suitcase. Mine would also be heavy on the tech/gadgts, have a bottle of Dr Bronners, and lots of suncream. But not so many sunnies! (only because I only own one pair). Happy travels Maxine, and thanks for sharing your packing tips!25th July 2016 – 6:47 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Thank you Molly. My post was inspired by a little shoot I did for the Sunday Times. I had such fun doing it, I had to give it a whirl at home.25th July 2016 – 10:02 pmReplyCancel

  • Old Fashioned Susie - I love Lush- I’ve just started using their Daddio shampoo- smells of Parma Violets! Great packing post, I’ve something similar in my drafts on my blog… I need to take some photos x25th July 2016 – 9:11 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Ooh – I’m going to give that shampoo a go for sure! Sounds divine.25th July 2016 – 10:02 pmReplyCancel

  • Billy's Beach Hut - Hi,

Now that my living room is almost finished, I thought it would be fun to show you a few different¬†looks¬†to style your space¬†by switching around the cushions and playing around with throws and accessories. I’ve decided to show you three colour looks trending for summer which I know you are just going to love.

  • Carole King - The Indigo look is my favourite. That sofa looks super comfy and the colour combinations are unexpected. I like it.25th July 2016 – 5:16 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Pleased to hear x25th July 2016 – 6:30 pmReplyCancel

  • Rachel @ FreshDesign - I love the indigo, but then I got down to the Modern Boho, and I really love those colours and splashes of pattern. I might have to draw the line at the clapperboard though.26th July 2016 – 10:46 amReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Just take as much as you like from each trend :))26th July 2016 – 2:04 pmReplyCancel

If (like me) you don’t have room for¬†a dedicated¬†home office then it can be a struggle to keep your work clutter from taking over your home.¬† I’ve come up with the perfect solution¬†for paperwork woes (and a way to stylishly¬†organise a¬†home) with an iconic Bisley filing cabinet.

I’m going to be controversial here…but I’m a bit over shutters. Yep, I’ve said it. They’re expensive, take weeks to make,¬†are bulky so block out lots of light, and you have to be handy to fit them (or pay for a carpenter). This is why when it came for my turn to dress my living […]

  • Antonia Ludden - They give your bay window a fabulous look, both inside and out. I think with the lovely style of your windows shutters would be too much – the blinds are simpler and more streamlined and work so well. Lovely! xx19th July 2016 – 4:20 pmReplyCancel

  • Amanda - Those blinds look great from inside and out. Definitely the right choice for you!19th July 2016 – 6:36 pmReplyCancel

  • Molly - You’ve sold it to me for sure. Your blinds look great, and make so much sense over shutters. I’ve got blinds and love the clean look and ease of use, but have been victim to the ‘oh but shutters would look so much better’ voice in my head. No more, Maxine has spoken!19th July 2016 – 9:54 pmReplyCancel

Ever wondered what an interior stylist gets up to in a ‘typical’ working week? That’s exactly what¬†Luxury Flooring asked me too.¬†In reply, I thought I would¬†show how my week panned out with a photo-diary taking a snap each day of where¬†my two little feet¬†took¬†me.¬†¬†

  • Claire - What a great idea for a post! I enjoyed seeing behind the scenes and having a tiny peek into your life.

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Thank you Claire. That is really lovely thing to say. You must check out the other bloggers who have done this idea – we all have such different lives. Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.25th July 2016 – 10:46 amReplyCancel
