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
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.

homeware? Any pieces taken your fancy lately that you think I should take a
