A homeware haul.
This month Felix and I have been spending a good amount of time in the holiday home, which gave us the chance to get some of the stuff we need in order to make it feel more lived in.
We are of course still missing a lot of things, but I’m loving the way it’s coming together, so I’m here to show you some recent finds!
I bought a large table from Made.com with a long bench and 5 chairs of two different colours: light blue and dark green. I thought that instead of having them all look the same, because it is a bigger table, it would look more playful to break the colours a bit – and I like how subtle the change is.
I’ve come across a website called Oliver Bonas, and decided to make an order from there. They had so many wonderful things, but I tried to only get a few.
One of which, is this spice set up here. Not really necessary, but I love the look of it!
I also got some beautiful mugs. Like I did with the chairs, I opted for two different colours, this time baby pink and green.
We also needed a doormat, and I saw this adorable alligator one.
My sliders are from Urban Outfitters.
In the website they had a bunch of pretty storage boxes, from small to large. I picked a medium sized one, so I can store all my makeup and skincare in it.
The final thing I bought from there is this print. I generally buy prints where I have an empty wall and don’t know what to do with it (towards the end of my decorating process), but this time I saw it and liked it so much that I decided to get it regardless, and today I realised it fits just right on top of my desk, so it all worked out!
But the best purchase of the week is this fig tree. Remember how in a previous blog post I mentioned that I was looking for a larger plant that would lean onto the wood burner? Well, this does that just perfectly!
It’s big enough to deserve a name, so I called it Kao.
The basket is from Ikea.
It may not seem like much yet, but I’m being extremely selective with what I buy for this home (it took so long to find the plant, or even the right mugs I wanted) so having found these items, I feel like I’ve done good progress!
Do you have any online store recommendations for me, by any chance?
