House Beautiful

My old flatmate is coming to stay tomorrow night, so I am very excited right now. I miss living with that girl. We lived together for six months, and spent a lot of time before we lived together creating elaborate Pinterest boards filled with polka dot kettles, chalkboards and retro telephones, plotting how our flat would look.

In honour of those boards, I’ve been creating something of a wishlist with a little help from Oldrids and Downtown.

I have a bit of a thing with cushions. My sofa and my bed already house a few, but I’m always on the look out for more. I love this pink patchwork cushion. It’s such a pretty print, although it actually kind of reminds me of the sheets my mum uses back home. This cushion with felt discs would go perfectly with my colour scheme, so that’s definitely on the list.

Ok, not strictly home decor, but come on. A shopaholic cocktail glass is pretty much perfect for a lifestyle blogger, no? As well as being a shopaholic, I’m a massive crazy cat lady. I actually used to work somewhere that stocked these cats, so I can vouch for how beautiful they are in person. They’re clay and then coated in bronze. They’re so detailed and pretty. If I can’t have a real kitty…

These days, I’m getting more into my baking and cooking, and clearly need a domestic goddess kitchen to go with. If I could start with this tea caddy, these oil bottles, this chopping board and these dipping bowls, I’d be pretty content.

Oldrids and Downtown have got an enormous range, and are actually pretty budget friendly. Hooray! Much better than those Pinterest boards…
