I can’t help it, I am just obsessed with decorating our flat!
We’re in the final stages of finishing off the living room now, which means I can finally unleash my full vision for the way I want it to look, and start bringing in some more accessories. The living room is mostly white, with a deep blue feature wall, and we’re accessorising the room with plenty of gold, my favourite metallic.
I spied this unusual gold triangular magazine rack from Holly’s House and I think it will be a great way to store some of my back issues of ELLE, Vogue and Ideal Home – plus, it’s incredibly cheap from that store so feels like a real bargain. They have so many gorgeous pieces but the prices hurt my purse more often than not. I also found these mini hanging photo frames from H&M and I love the style. I’m planning on purchasing a few of them and creating a cluster somewhere in the room, but I’m not sure where yet. I want to fill them with some handwritten notes and some old photographs for a really interesting look that’s different to the rest of the artwork we have around the house.
As you’ll have seen, we recently bought a vintage 1960s sideboard, and I have been waiting to find the right accessories to dress it up. It’s already home to an amazing gold and white lamp I found in TK Maxx, but I want to store our cocktail pieces there too. I found this gorgeous gold cocktail shaker and I am obsessed with it – it would look perfect sitting on the sideboard with a small selection of cocktail glasses and other paraphernalia. Isn’t it beautiful?! And this vase from H&M is just too beautiful – I can’t wait to fill this with flowers and keep our sideboard looking lovely.
I’ve been lusting over some bits for other rooms of the flat too – this ‘Let’s Stay Home’ print from Etsy would be ideal framed and placed on the shelf above our bed. Dining-wise, I’ve found my perfect set-up too; these marble-effect plates from M&S are just too stunning, especially when paired with copper cutlery(!) from Next, of all places. I want it all!
What do you think of my home wishlist?
