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.

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.
