We have lived here for a little over a year now and although it’s taken some time we are finally starting to really inject our own style into this place. Well, I am, Ben doesn’t really mind and goes with whatever I like unless it’s really elaborate. Like a pink sofa, I

The curtains are Orla Kiely and from Next if I remember rightly. These were the first things we bought for in here actually, the colour scheme was developed around them – grey, blush pink and dark blue. The blue makes the room a lot darker than we initially imagined so we have plans to get some floor lighting as well as some white, bright accesories to lighten it all up a bit.

This shelf was once upon a time part of my sisters tarantula set up. She had the tanks all set up on here along with a mouse I think it was. Anyway, it was re homed here when she moved. The shelf, not the tarantulas, no way am I having gigantic spiders in my house thanks very much.
I love how simple it is, just plain unfinished wood, presumably pine? I’m not sure but either way, I really love the rustic,
I love old style things, hence the records and record player too although I have seen Tesco now stock LPs which is amazing! My collection
I also have a couple of my

My current desk set up ft. sad yukka plant. I’m hoping it’s not dying and just looks bare because 1. it’s winter and 2. Effie keeps biting the leaves. We have had some baby leaves shoot so I’m hoping she will get a bit fuller soon. I had been dying for a desk like this for ages and finally caved and bought one last year, it was from Amazon I think and definitely under £80. The chair is eBay and about £30 if I remember rightly, I love the style of this chair, I kind of want to replace all my kitchen chairs with these but I don’t think I can part with the pink in there.
The basket underneath is eBay, it took a while to come because the majority of these style basket/bag things are from China so be prepared for a few weeks wait if you order one. I added my own pom poms because I’m extra.
I’m really loving how light and airy it is in here, I think we are going to keep it this way although we are going to give it a new lick of paint but the brightness is something we are really wanting to keep. The rest of the house, or at leats downstairs is quite dark in comparison so we are wanting to keep things a bit brighter and simple up here with lots of greenery. I think our bedroom is one of the most plant heavy rooms in the house, I just love ’em. Cats and plants are my crack. Plz pray for my yukka though </3.
As you can tell I’m super into seagrass baskets for storage and for plants as well as plants and more plants. I’m also really loving macrame hangers too, I think I’m going to have another shot at making my own soon because I’m obsessed. I think most rooms have one in now I just love how they look! Anyway, I hope you liked having a little peek into a few of my favourite corners of my home!
