things / 01

I have been eying up interior blogs ( pinning frenzy over on my pinterest) recently and I wanted to compile a series of items I love and would want in my new pad. I recently have become a tad obsessed with simple clean furniture with accents of colour. Nothing like being obsessed with furniture and not being able to afford all of it. I am totally getting ready to nest.

I think each one of these would be seen as being useful and not too self-indulgent, my mug collection is pretty epic right now so that Lief mountain mug might be just a little indulgent but who can blame me look at those colours!

Are there any items for your house you are pinning over?



  1. I absolutely love that mug! xo

  2. Hard to believe that lamp is from Wilkos! Totally agree with you about accents of colour especially using lots of plants/greenery x x

  3. I would like a huge oak family dining table like huuuugggggeeee and long and super chunky .but we live in a flat at the moment and have no where to store it even if I find a dream one which makes me sad :( !!!

  4. you have just found the lamps we have been looking for, and even better that they are from Wilko!! We have been searching for this style of desk lamp with a matching floor lamp in Chrome, and lo and behold there they were. Thank you very much, and lovely other pieces as well. I love interiors even when I have no intentions of decorating anywhere.

  5. actually would love to fill my walls with expedit shelves, so many different options!
    my furniture / home wish list is forever growing!

  6. I've actually got the Ikea Expedit Shelf Unit - we use it instead of wardrobes with coloured boxes to match our palette - it really does look good - it's not just something for storage too, it's actually a feature of the room.
