When I moved in to my new little one bedroom flat at the end of September, it looked an absolute dump. The furniture is all old and in some places heavily damaged. I was really upset when I first got there as I just really couldn’t see this grotty little den turning into a bright, Pinterest worthy home. Thanks to all the help from my friends, I finally have rid of the hideous sofa and have arranged the furniture nicely, covering anything gross with pretty throws and tablecloths. I’ve also got a fair bit of my own furniture which brightens the place up a bit. Luckily, I had a relatively nice space to work with. The lounge windowsill is huge and I love the dark green window frames against the pure white curtains that came with the place (one of the only brand new items provided). I’ve invested in some beautiful little home-wares here and there to make it look more homely and welcoming, what do you think?
White heart shaped bowl from Wilko, only £2.50 and great for dishing up snacks or storing your keys.
Binatone pink & white home phone from Argos, only £14.99 and now I finally own my dream phone from when I was 12.
Mini floral storage drawers from Wilko, only £3.00 and great for tidying away little bits such as chalk, batteries, cards and tea lights.
Yoda wall art from Wilko, just £5 and only available in store.
Mini Pyramid Terrarium from Urban Outfitters, £15 (now only available in store) and looks adorable with a little cactus tealight from Tiger, £3 (for four.)
Palmestry Hand from Urban Outfitters, £12 and now only available in store. Also worth knowing how much it makes people peek in your window.
Hexagon shelf unit from Tiger, just £5 and I’ll certainly be adding a couple more of these to my new home.
White orchid in floral white pot from Tesco, £12 and looks beautiful on my large lounge window sill.
Black wire basket from Tiger, only £4 and looks awesome with my little succulent (market, £2) and Tesco plant pot (£2.50 including a plant which is now dead soz)
Fake bamboo plant from The Range, only £7 and looks lovely next to my vintage type writer (family hand me down.)
