Behind the Lounge

Hello, I'm Amanda, lovely to meet you and thanks for checking out The Chamomile Lounge.

I created this space because I can have an opinion on anything and a lot to say about pretty much everything.

I love a project, big or small and generally have several on the go at once. I'm a sucker for a hack or a shortcut, I'm obsessed with house stuff, particularly cushions,  I collect clutch bags I never use and am always buying Tupperware. My style crush is Sarah Jessica Parker and I'm a tea addict.

I'm not an Interior Designer but I spend hours designing and restyling my home, my friends' homes and the homes of anyone else who will let me.

I'm collaborating on a million new things with my friend Jen Black, whose Wear The House brand is my new obsession. Expect to see lots more about the exciting things going on there.  As I said, I've a lot to say on a lot of topics!!

So if you're interested in sharing my journey, the highs and lows, the ins and outs then come on in to The Chamomile Lounge.

  • French Escape

    The work never ends in a super old house with stone walls three foot thick and a a roof which seems to love a good leak. As a committed cushion scatterer, my DIY was never up to much but restoring France, whilst trying to keep its charm has been a challenge.
