Chic Boutiquers at Home on tour!

“Small businesses tend to be more original, ethical and interesting. Let’s support them by shopping from them whenever we can, from small retailers we know and we know we can trust, for durable, long-lasting, well-made products with ethical origins. That’s pretty darn chic.” Ellie Tennant

Last week we celebrated the publication of Chic Boutiquers at Home by Ellie Tennant with an international blog tour of some of our favourite blogs, including homes from both this book, and Ellie’s first book Design Bloggers at Home. With this pedigree we knew it was going to be a good tour, and we had a poster to match!

We started the blog tour off at two homes featured in the book. First off, was Lobster and Swan – that gorgeous navy wall on the cover is from their home (we’re more than a little bit jealous!) Jeska said “A must read for interior decor snoopers everywhere and anyone thinking about starting an online business.” And our second day took a look at the Dutch home of Le Souk owner Danielle, on her blog The Style Files. We just love this fireplace!

Next up we crossed the Atlantic and visited SF Girl by Bay: “the concept only makes perfect sense me — if you’re truly fond of a shop’s look it’s only natural you may love the look of their homes, too.”

This was followed by a post on VosgesParis who appreciated the accessibility of the ideas featured in the book, as well as the final chapter in the book which offers a kind of ‘How to…’ guide. “The book is packed with plenty of ideas to use in your own home and a wealth of tempting new shops to explore…[and] the final ‘How to Launch Your Own Online Shop’ chapter is crammed with invaluable practical advice’.

Over on Happy Mundane, blogger Jonathan Lo chatted to Ellie about the book, and included some of his favourite images.

Finally, we finished up a gorgeous week with My Scandinavian Home and a peek inside the Copenhagen home of Kristina Dam.

What a week! We had a blast, and hope you did too. Make sure you click through to read all the blog posts and if your appetite has been well and truly whetted, Chic Boutiquers at Home is available here.
