Home Wishlist #1


It's no secret that I'm a bit of a home ware addict. I mean, pretty much everything I post on Pinterest is home related, and I'm almost certain that every time I go into a supermarket I come out with more decorative items than actual food. But obviously, a girl can never have enough, especially when we're talking about cork coasters and copper lamp shades. I mean seriously, who needs porn websites when you've got places like H&M Home and Zurleys at your finger tips? Talk dirty to me, oh industrial fan.

A home haul / updated desk space

So today's post was supposed to be some sort of LFW packing guide, but due to a few crappy circumstances it looks like I won't be shooting over to London this weekend, so instead a more at-home post seems more appropriate. I know it hasn't been too long since my last interiors/desk update, but in the past few weeks I've picked up a lot of new bits and pieces that I just know some of you will drool over as much as I did. Homeware geeks unite? Something like that..

With Uni starting up on Monday (how has time gone so fast!?) I'm about to start having to get my head down even more than usual, so I've been hoping a few new accessories will help provide me with a bit more inspiration. Does it work? I'm not sure, but it definitely looks good if I do say so myself.

During my last trip to London I headed to the dream that is Tiger - AKA interior design crack for anyone on a budget. One of my favourite things that I picked up was the white ceramic pot with a wooden lid. Completely pointless, but the happiness it brings me is endless (or at least, until something new catches my eye). As you also may be able to notice in the top right of the first picture, my marble board decided to crack. At first I was devastated (those things are damn pricey) but then I realised my marble board turn from one board into about six, which almost makes the small fortune I spent on it seem more reasonable. Almost. And yes, they are the new Zoeva Rose Gold brushes, and yes, I'm completely obsessed with them.

Next up is the main focal point of this here post - the chair. I've had this fella for a little while but I've only now decided to show it in it's full glory. It's literally what Pinterest dreams are made of, don't you think. You can pick them up from Out There Interiors for a pretty reasonable price considering the quality. In fact, it's built so well I've actually managed to nap in it on a few occassions. Ever tried napping sat upright? Difficult, very difficult (but also very possible in this here seat).

I also picked up a special something from H&M Home - my first ever purchase from there despite falling in love with pretty much everything on the website. This chopping board is for picture purposes only - no onions are going near this thing! On top you can see a tiny little tray that makes me so much happier than it probably should. I grabbed this (along with 3 others and one large tray) from Dot Com Gift Shop, which is probably my favourite place to pick up inexpensive house bits. More about them soon!
