Love It List –  Homewares Edition!

Too often on lifestyle blogs, I see the same items over and over, in similar style homes. Trends can’t be avoided but many of us fall under the spell of the status symbol homeware label. There are so many gorgeous things that don’t have to have the a premium price or status label attached, you just have to be open to them. They are accents not always the focus.

As a Taurus woman, I love my home, and I love making it gorgeous. Here are a few things that I love, for you consideration.

(This post was not sponsored in any way, it’s just stuff I like and wanted to share!)

Tablemats – I want to buy these for summer time eating. They’re kitsch and fun and we all need some tropical in our lives. They’re $25 and from Zara Homewares.

Cushion  Cover –  These come in fairy floss pink and duck egg blue. They are great as a solid anchor to highlight your more decorative cushions. and are $10. Yep. $10. It’s from Ikea and machine washable.

Double Boiler –  It sits over your saucepan. It’s easy to wash. It’s $8. It’s from Ikea.The end.

Bedsheets – Once you’ve tried Laura Ashley sheets you won’t go back and they’re often on sale. This queen sized set is currently 65% off. Down to $82. Yep. For a fitted, flat and two pillow case set.

Glass rabbit jar – From Target. Fill with eggs for the perfect little gift. Jar is $10. Eggs are cheap. Life is fun.

Organiser Board – I really want this even though I have nowhere to put it but I love things and I love things with sections. It starts at $26 from Pottery Barn. You buy the pieces you want and add on. So organised! Bliss.

Jute Basket – Is it a waste paper basket? Is it a magazine holder? Is it pot plant holder?
It’s whatever you want it to be and it’s only $9.95 and it’s machine washable. From H&M Homewares.

Tablerunner- I’m a sucker for a print, especially Persian or Moroccan or the like. 100% cotton. $45. Machine washable. Will even look better as it ages. Boho table from Zara Homewares baby.

Colander – I have one of these. It’s ace. $15. Ikea.

Spinning Library Table – It’s so beautiful and so expensive but I just wanted to show the book lovers on this blog. How fun would it be to curate these shelves. Would you do colour? Or genre? Or book design?
pour yourself a vodka tonic and get spinning and shelving. Yes, it’s $898. No, I don’t have one. Yes, I want one. No, I’m not getting one.
