Tea For One In My Favourite Corner!

You can take a girl out of England, but you can't take England out of the girl, isn't that what they say? And no amount of delicious Swedish coffee can persuade me to drop my tea! Are you a tea drinker too? If so what type do you like best? For me, it depends on the occasion, but I never go a day without a mint tea, especially in the afternoon! My latest work for Bodum (along with Helen Sturesson) was therefore an absolute dream - and although I haven't been not sponsored to write about it here on the blog, I thought it would be nice to share a snapshot of your work and my favourite corner of my sitting room with you all the same! Plus, the teapot is really lovely too!  

As you know, we only have a teeny garden, but I still make space to grow mint. I'm planning on harvesting a whole batch to make tea leaves over the winter, but for now, I love putting a fresh sprig in my cup! I also noticed the garden centre had some 'mojito mint' which naturally caught my attention! Do you think I should go back and get some? I kind of regret that I didn't! 

It's rare for me to get this corner all to myself - it's everyone's favourite spot in the house! 

In case you're curious - we kitted it out an Ikea Söderhamn chaise longue (you can often pick these up for a song second-hand) which I added a Bemz loose fit linen cover in Pebble*. 

We've had this trusty blanket from H&M Home for years (I think they still sell similar ones) and the linen curtains were custom made by not PERFECTLINEN* (note the different options for finishes - mine are 'hem for clip rings'). 

The little wooden tray is from Nordal, and the beautiful Assam tea press with bamboo handle and Thermo mug (it's made from double glass so you can hold it comfortably!) are from Bodum. As part of the campaign, they're offering 10% off all tea-makers with code MSH - until this Sunday 15th May - so if you love the look of this teapot (or in need of a tea-maker!) now's the time! 

If anyone's looking for me, I'll be right here, sipping tea! And maybe someday soon, a mojito will be on the cards too. Skål!


These pictures were taken for a recent Instagram collaboration with Bodum - however, this blog post is not part of the paid partnership, I simply thought you might like to see this little corner of my home, and hear about the discount code! 

The post does however, include a few affiliate links, marked with *


  1. Draga Niki,
    Stare de bine = viata de calitate. Asta vad eu la tine! Un colt super confortabil si luminos iti poate oferi asta cu siguranta. Evident, un ceai de menta este cireasa de pe tort.

  2. I also love tea (whether PG Tips or Bewleys to fresh mint). I have a huge stand of spearmint that grows along a hillside and meadow by my house. When we hay in the summer we smell mint all around the house for days. It's heavenly. So glad you have some in your Swedish garden.

    1. I love the idea of being surrounded by the smell of mine in summertime! Ours is only small right now (sadly my last plant died in the frost) - but I know it can grow really fast once it gets going!

  3. It’s understandable why everyone wants that spot in your house! It is lovely and cozy, inviting one to curl up and enjoy being there. That teapot is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you so much Pamela, I'm happy you like this little corner of our home too.

  4. I need to start drinking tea, if only for the peaceful ritual. I need a course on brewing tea though. I don't have confidence in the area!

    1. You do! I love my mint tea! Brewing is super easy - it's just to go for it and then enjoy it :)

    2. I'll give it a whirl. Thanks!

  5. Yorkshire Tea in the mornings and camomile in the afternoon for me! Love the curtains, what track/clips are they fitted with?
