My November homeware wishlist

IMG_1615

As most of you who follow me on social media will know, we’re currently in the stages of decorating.

And when I say the stages, I can now say that we’ve painted all the walls and sanded and glossed all the walls. And yes, i’ve basically earnt a six pack, albeit one that’s hidden under layers of Bic Mac fat, but whatcha gonna do, eh?

The whole house has a very clean, off-white look with pretty rustic floorboards (because, well, I didn’t have the elbow grease required to sand the edges by hand all that well), which means that furniture and accessory wise we can pretty much do what we want.

We’ve just ordered nearly a grand’s worth of white basic furniture from IKEA (HELLO SEXY NEW DESK FOR HANNAH), and to balance it out i’m hoping to get some second hand bits we can spruce up and paint ourselves. What will actually happen, is i’ll buy one chest of drawers, find the whole drama so exhausting that i’ll cry, and then it’ll never happen again. But a girl can dream, right?

I’m basically wetting myself over anything gold or bronze at the moment, so there’s that for you all to digest. And, aside from H&M and having a good nose around Asda and Tesco when i’m doing a food shop, i’m struggling to find any good low-cost places for cute homeware accessories, aside from Tiger, but Tiger isn’t in Ipswich or online and that makes me a sad little lamb. Woe is me.

Have you guys got any well kept homeware secrets? Any little online stores I should know about?

Anyway, these are the pieces i’m currently eyeing up with the hope I can finally achieve the dream of having a home that looks sexy as fuck on Instagram. Yup.

  • You need to get involved with Oliver Bonas.
    They do cute little copper wire letters for £10 each.

  • India

    I love Joss and Main, anywhere that stocks Nkuku and Gisela Graham. Cheap and cheerful, but I always find things I like in Wilko and Sainsburys, Dunelm Mill & Matalan. During the sale I love notonthehighstreet, Laura Ashley and Heal’s.
    Enjoy! Xx

    Places like Primark, Home Bargains, Wilkinsons, even Argos sometimes have nice things especially when sales are on. Home bargains and Wilkinsons are online too, they both do pick up in store if you don’t want to fork out for delivery charges

  • Alex

    I’m also a fan of Dunelm Mill and Matalan, and also rigby and mac have a few cute things that are affordable 🙂

  • May I recommend some second hand furniture and an electric sander (doing it by hand makes you want to lose the will to live…) I bought a tea trolley from oxfam for 10£ and sanded and painted it!!
    Facebook usually had good local second hand pages 😮

  • Megan

    tiger just opened in norwich, haven’t been yet but after seeing those cake stands im so excited!!!!

  • Jen

    Homesense is like home-heaven. If your heaven involves excessive amounts of cushions and candles and everything in between. Mine certainly does. Also B&Q weirdly has some nice things alongside all those mysterious wires and pipes.x

  • Cat

    That cake stand looks amazzzzing. Plus that fur throw needs to get into my life. I envy your desk-ness. I really need a dedicated blogging space! x

  • Sainsburys have some ace bronze/copper bits at the moment – just tonight I picked up a rather charming copper candle for a fiver! Also, that H&M wire basket is the dream!

  • Lucy parsons

    Matalan all the way.

  • do you look on easy? not exactly bargains but some amazing stuff, not on the hughstreet? tkmaxx homeware has some gems! http://thewanderlusthasgotme.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/learning-italian-in-london.html

  • Gemma

    I feel very old suggesting this, but try Homebase. I went there today for the first time after always assuming they were basically another B&Q but some of their stuff is absolutely lovely and at such affordable prices. I’m definitely going back when my bank balance is a bit fuller haha.

  • Amie

    Dunhelm Mill, got all my stuff from there 🙂 xx

    Charity shops. I have found the most beautiful cheap second hand furniture in these places……lamps, chests, cute trinkets, cushion covers, fur throws. All really good quality. They say that one mans rubbish is another mans treausre. This is so true! Plus you are spending half the price and its going to a good cause!

  • I love browsing Joss and Main but can never afford anything. Wilkinsons often pleasantly surprises me!

    Freckles & All
