Since buying my first home with my boyfriend I love looking at nick nacks for the home and as there are quite a few I have my eye on at the moment I thought I’d share my latest wish list with you. We have a new build and as we had only lived together at Uni previous to this we didn’t have anything to bring with us so needed to start from scratch. It was great having a blank canvas and we were really lucky to be able to get everything from the offset exactly how we wanted as it felt much more homely inside. Now we’ve been living there a while, though it’s time to add some more comforts so I’ve been on the look out for new things especially for this.
Here is my current wish list.
I love snuggling up on the sofa with a big blanket and this one from Laura Ashley is gorgeous. I love the pretty lilac and purple running through it and was particularly drawn to it as this is a colour I’m thinking about adding into our white, grey and black lounge.
Besides using this as a blanket if I bought several they would work as really great throws over the sofas to add a different look to the room and make it feel more cosy. I’ve been tempted to do this for quite some time and this design is exactly what I’m looking for.
Another throw I’m loving at Laura Ashley is this pretty polka dot one which again sports lilac and purple shades. I’m not sure I would want to use this as throws over both of my sofas but definitely as and added layer of comfort for people to snuggle with as the nights start to get darker and we go into Autumn and Winter.
I love heart decorations and as I live with my boyfriend they are the perfect way to decorate our house together. We have off white walls so this dark wicker heart would add some dimension as well as contrast to make it a little more interesting. I also like to decorate the walls with different things other than photo’s and paintings so they look more interesting so this would be the perfect addition.
I’m slightly obsessed with cushions because I love the way the finish off a look in either a lounge or bedroom and also can be used to support your back etc (multi-purpose, whoop!). I think this ivory pleated cushion from Debenhams is really girly and fun plus it has the added sparkle which finishes it off perfectly. It would look really lovely on a white bedspread to add another texture and a little glam.
Last but not least is a fragrance diffuser as mine has recently run out. I love having this in the house because they last ages and they easily fill a room with a lingering scent. I haven’t tried the apple and elderflower fragrance before but I like the sound of it because I imagine it being refreshing and slightly sweet.
What do you think of my wish list?
