If you were to go into my brain and take a screen shot over the past month, this is basically what you'd see. All these homeware ideas floating around and little else. I'm SO close to finishing the bedroom and literally have one or two things to buy this month before it's ready for me to show you it. Although I've made things slightly more difficult for myself by deciding I want a woven wall hanging on one of the bare walls. I tried to use the easy option and looked for a one on etsy, but all the ones I liked didn't ship to the UK, so I'm going to try and follow this tutorial to make something similar. Hopefully the finished bedroom post will be up soon!
Anyway, so these items are just odd things that I've been throwing in my online shopping basket over the last month. This includes some of the final items for the bedroom, and some for the living/dining room which I'm starting next month. The bedroom took months longer than I thought it would, so I'm expecting the living room to take a while too but I have to say, I absolutely love it - it's a pinterest addicts dream!
So the final items for the bedroom are this little marble click clock which I've fallen in love with. It'll look perfect on our little bedside table. I also spotted this patterned rug and these patterned cushions for the bedroom - I can't believe how inexpensive H&M is for homeware. Their stock is exactly the kind of stuff I like too.
For the living room, I'm planning on putting a long shelf up behind my sofa. I've already made a shelf of frames in my bedroom, so for this one I want to make it a mix of nice ornaments, candles and a few small pictures. I love this Ivory Daisy Wall Art and this Glass Display Box would add some nice detail with a big candle in it or something. The copper framed mirror is a style I'm thinking about for above my white sideboard unit. The thing is, I know copper is a trend just now so in the long term, it might be wiser just to have a few little accents (like these copper wire baskets) that I can switch up when I get bored. What do you think .. am I being too sensible?
Last but not least, my favourite item. You know when something just catches your eye and you love it instantly, even thought you don't know where you'd put it? Well that's how I feel about this flamingo print from made.com. I think I'll get this and put it a white or wooden frame as the black will be a bit too bold, but I'm going to make it work somewhere in the house!
Where have you been homeware shopping lately?
