Heyy, I’m Lindsey Isla. You may or may not know, but I’m the gal behind the interiors section here at Wear Next. 

When I’m not watching Love Island (I wish I was kidding), I spend most of my time with cameras in my hand, creating content for Instagram, TikTok (have you taken the plunge into the new app yet? How are you finding it?) and YouTube.

Basically, I’m an interiors and fashion content creator. 

I specialise in colour combinations. Nothing gives me more butterflies than seeing the perfect shade of pink next to a stunning green. 

This month has been a busier-than-normal month for me on the decorating side of things. 

I finally had my new floor laid and I’ve been painting. 

Flooring has been one of the most difficult things to decide on – I guess because it’s expensive and not something I wanted to tackle myself (normally I don’t mind getting my Bob the Builder on) so it feels more permanent than just painting a wall.

I went for Harvey Maria blue and cream checkerboard vinyl tiles and thankfully, I couldn’t be happier with the result. 

It does take a bit more cleaning than our previous gappy wooden floorboards but it’s totally worth it, it’s brought the whole house to another level, literally and figuratively. 

As for the painting, I’ve just finished repainting my lounge; it needed a cosier update so I swapped minty green for pale pink walls and a deep pink ceiling. I. Am. In. Love. 

Yes, not only have I jumped on board the painted ceiling trend, I’ve made myself the captain with a bright pink from Lick.

Although it sounds like my house is more colourful than the yellow submarine, don’t worry, my articles aren’t all going to be pink this and print that. 

I have a genuine love for all different kinds of interiors, from the minimal beige palace to the maximalist cosy cottage and everything in between. 

What Lindsey’s Doing

This past month I did take a quick break from painting to check out the new Lick x Studio Coverdale collection which consists of 10 botanical wallpapers from digital designer, Natasha Coverdale. 

Wallpaper has been making a huge comeback in recent years and with collections like this one popping up, fingers, arms and legs crossed it’s here to stay.  

What Lindsey’s Buying

As a person who loves change, I’m always looking for new ways to update my home. One of the easiest ways to do this is by swapping out some of the soft furnishings. 

Washed cotton bedding is everywhere right now and since a bed has such a huge surface area, updating the sheets can make it feel like a brand new bedroom. 

This set from M&S x Fired Earth collection in this season’s most popular colour, green, is a real winner.

Thanks to Luke Edward Hall (one of my interior heroes), a pop of red in your home is very, very hot right now, which is why I’m all over the new Mustard Made locker colourway, Poppy. 

I’ve recently updated my bedside cabinets with two of the ‘Shorty’ and if I do say so myself, they look more fantastic than Belle at the ball.

What Lindsey’s Wearing

Confession: I’m not the best at dressing for the warmer weather, so I‘ve been struggling to find some summery outfits that tick all the boxes. I want to feel like ‘me’, I want to be comfortable and I want to feel cool. Not asking for much there, am I? 

When it comes to fashion, I prefer to buy less and buy better, which is why I’m a huge fan of brands like Daily Sleeper and Olivia Rubin.

This Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress is something I’ve been living in at the moment, and this Olivia Rubin dress was the perfect occasion dress for an event last week. Both with classic shapes, I know I’ll treasure them forever.
