Flamingo Lights, Rose Gold Mirrors and everything cactus!

Friday, 23 March 2018

I think I have officially become an adult when I get more excited about switching a night out for a night in with a new duvet and a documentary. Instead of going round shops looking for new clothes, I usually go to the home section, a place which 5 years ago when my mum would take me to, I'd spend at least half of the time in there moaning about how bored I was, constantly querying how she could find this fun and who wants to look at clocks for 45 minutes. I will still maintain that I am not that bad yet. But buying new things to make your house look better makes me *happy* Living in rented accommodation can make it harder to make your place your own, but thank god for soft furnishings and the variety of them around, it makes it so much easier to make a place feel more like your own. I am a huge fan of new bedding, I must buy a new duvet cover at least once a month (yep I am that bad) recently I was in Trentham Gardens and came across the Julian Charles store, looking at their lush duvets I fell in love especially with this Paradise Bedding set. As it's officially now Spring (although the snow doesn't make it feel that way, please stay away until Christmas) I decided to create a few mood boards of styles I am *loving* this season and it's been a while since I created a wishlist styled post, so hopefully you enjoy this post and I would love to know what trends you are currently into. 

The pretty in pink trend:



Pink is one of my favourite colours and I am always drawn towards pink, these quirky pink picks, are a great way to add an element of fun to your home. Win. With a statement front room like mine (it's pink and grey) these pieces would fit perfectly.

The cactus trend: 
If you haven't seen this trend yet, where have you been? I believe it's been growing for some time, with myself also falling head over heels with the trend. With everything from cactus printed bedding to having an actual cactus within your house or in my case several of them. There are so many other cactus-themed items I currently have my mind set on.

The Copper Trend:

Copper is such a pretty trend and every time I see something new in a copper shade I automatically am drawn to it. There are so many different ways you can use copper and it is great for pretty much every room in the house.

  3. There are some lovely things around. Our house is such a mis-match of styles, perhaps I should try creating a style board.

  5. I absolutely love the trend of cactis at the moment - and I would combine it with pink making a bright 80's kind of contrast.
