Humble Homewares

Since moving into our new house about two weeks ago, I have gone homewares mad!

I’m trying to make the house look all vintagey and cute but also stylish and sophisticated.

I love all things cheap and quite a lot of these buys have been amazingly small in price!

First off are my make up drawers:

I’m a huge fan of the plastic make up storage boxes and cases and these drawers caught my eye in B&M. They were only £3.99 and I’m in love with them; they’re so handy to keep accessories on and keep things neat and tidy on my side.

Primark Candle Set:

I have an absolute obsession with pretty candles and these have taken a corner of my window-sill. They were only £3 from Primark and I love how boho-hippy they are. Because our bedroom is a lot of white and wood, they add some colour to the blank canvas that is our bedroom.

Tiger Heart Bunting:

I bought this a few weeks ago from Tiger for only a quid! It is 4 metres long though so if you decide to buy it, you need to find somewhere to put it. I tried putting it up in our bedroom and it’s just so long! Also, how lovely is the bedding? It’s a big double set from Ikea for only £13!

Now there’s a few things I wanted to show you on our fireplace but I’ll start with the lettered candles. How cute are they? I got these for £2 each from Asda and I think they make our home look very personal. I also love our clock, £6 , from Ikea. It fits into our monochrome theme in the living room and it’s perfectly sized for our narrow fireplace. There hanging heart reads: ‘love you to the moon and back’ and I bought it for Kane as a little present from Matlock last week and it was only £3.99.

Black Mirror:

This vintage looking mirror is from B&M for only £7.99 and looks perfect above our fireplace. I love it because it fits in the colour scheme, it’s quite small and very me! It’s not too big and not too small and just adds a little contrast to the bright white walls in the living room.

I know it’s pretty odd we don’t have an actually fire under the fireplace, but I have made it look pretty. I have a grey oil burner that my auntie bought for us, which fits great with our colour scheme. She also bought us a whole lot of different oils and scents for it so our house always smells wonderful now! I also have some little Yankee candles in tealight pots. The pots were £1.50 for 4 from Ikea and the candles are in scents Black Cherry and Vanilla.

Assortment of containers:

I have a thing for collecting different containers and bottles. The clasp top jars are both from Ikea and I think are £1 each. The bottles are ones I have collected over the past few weeks including a sweet jar from The Treat Kitchen which is a cute little sweet shop in the Intu. I also have a great big Peroni bottle (which is Kane’s) and a Snapple glass bottle. I’m going to eventually use this to melt candles in, stuff with fairy lights or use them as vases. I’m all about recycling for decorations!

Plaque:

Kane’s mum bought us this little plaque to hang in the hallway and I love the message it reads. It’s great because it’s our first home and I just find it very sentimental. It is only small and it was only £1.99 from B&M. they have an assortment of different coloured strings and sayings on them and I think they add a little meaning to a corner of your home.

So that’s it for now! Just a few of my favourite homewares from our new home. I’m still looking out for a few more little bits so I’ll keep y’all updated!
