Home wishlist

We’ve been in our new home for nearly nine months and now that we are more settled there are a few upgrades I’d love to make.

As extra chairs these beauts would do the job (from John Lewis). Our current chairs for the office and  my dressing table fold away which is ideal but they aren’t super comfy and the one I use daily at my dressing table is a tad broken.

I have my eye on adding a couple of these to our flat – one for the bedroom and one for our office and there are much cheaper dupes on ebay and the like.

We have a fair share of free standing shelves around the flat but there is something about that screams RENTING to me and we are homeowners. I really want to fit some shelving in the office.


Some of the flooring in our flat drives me potty. I cannot bear our bedroom flooring – on a really basic level it is uncomfortable with bare feet and where do you have bare feet if not in your bedroom.


When we first moved into together we had a tiny Ikea flat pack sofa, second hand, and a bit mouldy from being stored in a garage. And in addition to that we bought a giant Ikea corner sofa from Gumtree. Don’t get me wrong that sofa has been great, it’s big enough for loads of people and comfy enough for people to sleep over on.

The current giant, dirty sofa

All that being said it has a really low back and gets filthy like nobodies business And I am now dreaming of this sofa below – blue velvet. Beautiful.Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 5.29.44 pm

It’s from Made.com and will probably never make it into our home as it’s ‘typical highstreet’ price is £2,500 and who has that kind of money!
