A super quick interiors based post this weekend, babes. Can we just talk about this gorgeous chair in the main image? These Oyster chairs are less than £80 and they’re from Sue Ryder online. I’m getting straight to the point. Yep, the charity shop. These guys are upping their game and ‘charity’ is not the first thing that comes to mind when I think Sue Ryder. I walk past the Nottingham branch every day, twice a day, on my way to and from work and seriously, it has some awesome window styling and their stock is always on point.
If homeware shopping isn’t your favourite thing then I’m not sure we can be friends… Joking, obv we can but if you want to chat about homeware I’m your girl. Shopping is all kinds of fun for yourself but for the house it’s so much more fun isn’t it? I’ve been loving the summer sales that have been going on this month and wanted to share some amazing finds with you all! I would normally post only on Sundays, that’s been my regular routine but because I don’t want these bargains to get away I thought I’d do an earlier one this week.
Someone thought it was totally OK to give us a mortgage (here’s looking at you Natwest, no going back now) – so we bought a house! Hence why things have been a little thin on the ground and sporadic over the past few weeks – it gets a bit stressful, dunnit?
Now we’re in thanks to the in-laws of dreams and a lot of hard work and there’s not a cardboard box in sight after two and a half days of unpacking and sorting out. There’s something to be done in every room and it’s going to be at least a year, if not longer until everything is exactly how we want it to be, let’s not talk about the kitchen, but we’ll get there. So, here’s introducing a new section of proper interiors onto the blog. I’ve always loved interiors but living in rented flats and houses really limits you to basically changing your sheets and hanging a few prints if you’re handy with the Polyfilla so I’m really looking forward to finally being able to decorate like a grown up.
I’ve always loved prints and, posters and sticking things up on my walls. From Kerrang! magazine posters to quirky prints from Urban Outfitters and IKEA now, I just love how they can change a room’s look and feel. I even painted Alexisonfire lyrics on my walls when I was 13, (sorry Mum), but I just love a bit of art, don’t I? On this note, we finally got around to doing something with our bedroom and giving it the same TLC that we’ve given the (only other) room in our flat, the kitchen/diner.
Updating the bedroom is a nice thing to do from time to time. It’s easy to get bored of looking at the same four walls. If you feel this way, there’s no need to worry about spending hours updating the room. These quick tips will help you to update your bedroom in no time!
Choose a New Paint Colour
Painting your bedroom shouldn’t take you all that long to do, so all you need to do is decide what colour you’d like to go. Different colours have different effects on mood, so make sure you don’t pick anything you find too stimulating. It’s a good idea to pick relaxing colours, such as green and blue. However, it’s completely up to you! Make sure you don’t cut corners while painting to get a professional finish. Cover everything over to avoid splashing furniture too!
After being inspired by Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup and Lily Pebbles on Youtube with their make up storage ideas I moved my teeny (in comparison to theirs!) make up and skincare collection to the top draw of my IKEA Malm chest of drawers.
I now have all my skincare, make up, nail varnishes and body care in one place as opposed to dotted around various places in our bedroom. I’m finding this a lot easier in the morning and things are so much tidier. With this in mind, here are 6 chests of drawers that are perfect for make up storage, whatever your budget and taste.
At the moment I seem to be obsessed with pineapples, especially in home ware and interiors! Here’s a little mood board of some inspiration that I want to incorporate into my home decor once I get my flat after uni. Really needing a gold pineapple in my life.
