Life: A little (Oliver Bonas) filled homeware haul

If you follow me on twitter, you’ll be aware that I’ve been packing up my teeny tiny flat to move into a beautiful brand new 2 bedroomed house. It’s now a week away from moving day and I’m driving Richard absolutely crazy with homeware hauls and links to different bedroom sets. All of this in mind, I’ve put together a little ‘wishlist’ post of a few things (mostly from Oliver Bonas) that I’ve come across recently that I know would make an amazing addition to the new house. 3 Oliver Bonas goodies, and one VERY unrealistic homeware item that I would do SO MUCH to get my hands on!

Pillows are always a tricky one with me. In my flat, I had beautiful sequinned rose gold pillows that went perfectly with the grey-blue sofa. However, they left a trail of sequins in their wake so I’ll be on the lookout in the coming weeks for some new pillows to jazz up the sofa and make the living room a little bit more cosy. I found this gorgeous sheepskin cushion in Oliver Bonas that I’d love to buy as a ‘statement’ cushion, to add a bit of oomph to my sofa and spice up the action a bit. I love the beautiful stone colour of the cushion as well – I would just love to be cuddled up with this on my lap!

We’ve spent a lot of time over the last few weeks choosing prints to put up on the walls throughout the house. I say we – I must admit I’m very particular about what goes on the walls and Rich has had to run each of his choices by me in a very ordered and controlled fashion. I love lunar prints and this one from Oliver Bonas is particularly special- the different phases of the moon look so stylish and would make a beautiful addition to one of my gallery walls.   

I have a lovely, albeit plain, lamp in my lounge at the moment that I picked up from John Lewis. However, it’s more than due an upgrade and there are quite a few different lamps that I’ve seen that most definitely would fit beautifully in my lounge. One that I love especially is this beautiful angled floor lamp. The copper tone would go beautifully with the furniture I already own and it gives a more rustic vibe to a modern setting. It is a little on the higher end of my ‘lamp budget’ but I think it’d definitely be worth the investment.

A dream that I have is a beautiful room, filled with books and a log-burning fire with the most gorgeous armchair in the corner – the perfect room to snuggle down and read with a mug of hot chocolate, a blanket and a fluffy pillow. I have the room- naturally, I have the wall of bookshelves filled with books – but I lack the armchair. This beautiful armchair from Houseology is probably the armchair of my dreams although the price of it makes me want to cry a little bit. The colour is just spectacular and I love how deep the back goes- you could definitely get snuggled right in there. Whilst completely unrealistic at the moment, I’m going to keep this chair on my list in the hope that someone takes pity on me and throws me the ££ to make this purchase. It is honestly absolutely spectacular.

Where are your go-to shops for homeware? Any pieces taken your fancy lately that you think I should take a look at? Let me go!
