I’ve recently been re doing bits to my house, so I thought I would do a post on all the recent homeware items I’ve been buying, me and my boyfriend have been in our house 2 years this August, and our plan was to do one room at a time, last year we had the front garden, main bathroom and en suite done and now this year we want to do our bedroom, living room, loft Dormer and our kitchen/dinning room extension. It’s a lot of work and I hate having a messy house, but its all worth it in the end just a tad bit stressful as you can imagine, I absolutely hate all the dust everywhere, I think that’s the worst bit about it!!
It brings me on to my post today which is all about my recent homeware bits I’ve been buying, I really wanted a change in my bedroom and the first place I went to for inspo is pinterest, we all know how amazing pinterest is! they had so many gorgeous pictures of blush, grey and rose gold bedrooms that I fell in love and knew that was exactly what I wanted.
most of the bits I’m going to talk about that I got are for my bedroom as I’ve completely changed the colour scheme, flooring and wardrobes. So if you love Homeware posts I hope you enjoy this one.
Just to warn you this post Might be a little long I do apologise!
We had decided on this white wooden flooring over a year ago but only now getting around to ordering and laying it, it’s just a white wood with a grey grain, we did spend ages deciding on this and had about 100 floor samples to choose from. I love white flooring it makes everything look clean, bright and modern. A bonus is that I can take lots of my blog and IG pictures on this flooring now Ha ha!
My colour scheme I decided on was blush nude and grey, it’s so very “in” at the moment and literally all the shops are filled with these colours. I wanted something that would be modern, and would go with anything as I had gold and while bedding before, I also wanted something a little more manly looking for John as well, Although I would love to go for girly bed sets I cant anymore, although he does have to lump it sometimes LOL
I ordered this doubled sided blush and grey bedding set from ebay ( I would link it but it’s now sold out 🙁 sorry )
I’ve also been ordering loads of other spare bedding sets I got a blush set from H&M and also a marble bedding set from primark, so I can change it up regularly.
I have fallen in love with the cushion covers in H&M home literally H&M is nude and grey heaven, they have bedding, cushions, rugs the lot, I could have bought the whole shop. I got a bunch of all different covers so I could change them around depending on what bedding set I have on. If you’re looking for affordable cushion covers I highly recommend H&M home I’ve seen loads of nice ones that look identical to these but are so expensive I just couldn’t pay £30/40 for a cover no matter how much I loved it.
I’m sure you have all seen the gorgeous chunky throws and blankets all over IG and pinterest right? well I fell in love with them but again I couldn’t justify the price, although I would have loved a real one I had to be sensible. Don’t get me wrong I can understand why they are so expensive because of the wool and time it takes but I can’t pay £200-400 on a throw that’s just going to be at the end of my bed, so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw this in Dunelm, I literally live in Dunelm at the moment I’m there every week, they have gorgeous home ware and bedding and its so affordable too which is what we want right!!
This charcoal throw was only £45 and is such a bargain for how big and thick it is, it also comes in cream too and you can buy it here
Another Item I got in Dunelm was these sheepskin rugs, I love fluffy rugs they look so chic, I’ve got one in my beauty room although my dog Elliott loves rolling around on it and has made it go all clumpy, I’m convinced he thinks its his sibling! I picked up this rug in grey and nude and they where £34.99 each available to buy here
I also picked up these rope/knitted storage baskets from Dunelm ( I did say I love Dunelm) I put the smaller one next to Johns side of the bed and it hides all his crap he leaves lying around, I do love a storage basket and loved the fact these went with the style and theme of the room.
£7-8 purchase them from here
I Was looking everywhere for copper photo frames, I wanted something for my prints I had ordered and luckily found these.
copper photo frames £4.99- 6.99 are from Dunelm also and you can find them here
All prints are from Desenio, I was looking for prints that I could display that were affordable as some websites I found were a tad expensive, Desenio had 25% off too!! I wanted to be able to change them regularly as I get bored really quick, that was the idea of the picture ledge shelf too as it saves me putting loads of holes all over the wall. I hate filling in holes!
Shop the full range here
photo frame ledge shelf is from ikea here
Also picked up these beauty prints from Desenio for my beauty room. They had so many to choose from, I might actually have to order some more eeek!
I was searching everywhere for a copper Lamp, again I wanted something affordable, I didn’t want to spend £100 on a lamp lol no matter how nice it was. Luckily I was on pinterest and came across this one from Wilko so ordered it straight away and it was only £20!! I’ve gone for copper, and marble accessories as it goes lovely with grey.
Purchase from wilko here
Next up is some random bits I’ve picked up to display, I got the rose gold brass tray in the H&M home sale it was only £5 and then some little decorative items as well from H&M. Candle is from Primark.
I picked up these thanks to Oliva over at lustliving, seriously if you don’t follow her you must! she gives me all kind of home inspo and jealousy ha ha but no her style is amazing and she’s also so lovely too. she recently posted about these tins on IG and I loved them, it was exactly what I had been looking for, again more storage for my room as well as being pretty to look at I love the gold confetti detail.
These are from dotmaison but are currently sold out.
I got this end of bed chest/storage from EBay and added the rose gold handles, I really like how it’s turned out, I needed a new chest as my other one was broken and old. I just typed in white wood ottoman to find this one.
And lastly I just wanted to mention this DIY stool I will be making, If you have read my beauty room post from last year (Which you can read here) you will know I made my own sheepskin stool then, but I fancied something new and to go with my beauty room once its all been re done next week as im having the flooring done and a massive de clutter but I ordered my self some hairpin legs in gold, and I’ve got a sheepskin rug in nude and white that I’m going to use for the seat, I havent decided what colour I’m going to do yet. Again if you have seen Lustlivings Instagram she recently got one of those gorgeous stools and it’s absolutely stunning, ( I did say she gives me inspo and makes me drool over her interior) So I wanted to make myself one as I love doing things like this and I was so pleased how my other one came out. Pinterest also gives me lots of inspiration for DIY home interior ideas.
I hope you enjoyed this post, it was something a little bit different but Id love to do more homeware posts in the future as I’ve had loads of people ask me about the stuff I have been buying recently.
I’m so excited that we are having our loft room done next, It was already sort of done when we got the house but we want to make it bigger and have a proper loft dormer, it’s actually going to be my office and photo taking area, as all my lights and equipment has taken up so much room in my beauty room. so I cant wait to show you all that when it’s completed in March.
If you have any questions leave me a comment.
Thanks for reading! xo
