Homeware Haul

Hi everyone,

As we have recently moved into a new home, I have obviously been going a little overboard with my homeware shopping and buying things to make the place our own. I always love reading other people’s homeware hauls so I thought I would do one of my own and share with you a few of the things I have been buying….

This is one of my favourite things that I have bought and is from Ikea. As with everything from there you have to buy all the bits separately (I even had to put the fairy lights together!) but it is definitely worth it and I absolutely love the cute copper fairly lights as they shine little stars on the wall when they are lit.

To go with the fairly lights, they also had matching candle holders at Ikea so of course I had to get them as well. The two look really nice together when they are all lit up on a cold autumn evening and make the room look lovely and cosy.

I have gone a bit over the top with buying candles and candle holders but I couldn’t resist these lanterns which are also from Ikea (I feel like I have been living there recently!). They have the same cut out star design on the top and I have had so many people asking where they are from since I got them.

Something that isn’t from Ikea but still on the candle theme is these candle holders from The Range. I can’t remember how much they were but they were pretty inexpensive and I just love them.

Back to Ikea again with this jug and flowers. The jug was on offer reduced from £14 to £10 and the flowers were just £1 each. I think these inject some much needed colour into our living room which is mainly grey and white.

Last but not least is this cute little plaque which I bought from a lovely gift shop when I was in the Lake District. My boyfriend hates any sort of plaques with sayings on them so this one has been banished to my dressing room but I think it makes a lovely addition to the house.

And that’s pretty much everything so far that I have bought in the last couple of weeks. The majority of it is from Ikea but that’s where we have bought a lot of furniture too and you can get some really great ideas from there.

Where do you like to get your homeware inspiration? What do you think of the things I have bought?

Thanks for reading,

  1. I adore Ikea and back in Malaysia we pretty much decorated our condo with Ikea furnitures. Unfortunately for us, Ikea is not available in our small town here so we had to pretty much purchase our home furnitures from LazyBoy and they are pretty pricey! :-(

  2. I love the cute copper fairy lights and matching candle holders. I think I need a trip to Ikea now ;) x

  3. @Shireen L. Platt I love IKEA too as they have some fab things but I do find it a little stressful sometimes with it being so big! I'll have to check out LazyBoy but it's a shame it's expensive. x

  4. @Natasha The copper fairy lights and candle holders are definitely my favourite things that I bought :) I think they are perfect for autumn too! x
