Plates

How adorable is this peacock plate from Perky on Not on the High Street?! I kind of want to buy it and be one of those people who displays plates on her wall… Of course I would buy some as dinner plates but £29.50 a plate is sliiightly out of my price range.

What I did buy however is a bunch of plates from the Habitat Concetta range, which I’ve loved for ages! Also pretty expensive, but I compromised by buying half the amount of plates and bowls that I need and the other half from Ikea. The Ikea plates are about the same size and shape, just plain white, so I figure I’ll alternate when setting the table and it’ll look fine.

Upon closer inspection of the Perky products, they also do plates with other fabulous designs! As well as cushions and art prints! I may have to splurge on something after all…. After all, a house isn’t a home without an earring-wearing bird.

I am having a peculiar love affair with this console table. I can’t remember the last time I felt lust like this. And the last time I thought about an ostrich this much was, well let’s save that story for band camp shall we?

(joke)

It comes in black:

You can get it (for about £500 less) without the lamp:

In fact, all sorts of animal arse options are available to you:

Or even a whole horse for those with the sort of houses that could only be improved by the addition of a giant behoofed mammal.

These are all from ibride, and I am now kind of obsessed with their weird and wonderful website. I originally saw the table on Out There Interiors, where I bought my coffee table for my new flat (alas not an ostrich), and I am obsessed with everything on that website too!

If only these were cheap novelty items then I would be the proud lover owner of the Diva Lucia (it’s even named after one of my best friends, this has to be a sign!), but at £895 a pop, I think I may have to exercise my iffy self restraint.

Boo 😦

Happy Hump Day!

(Ooh…humps…..maybe I could find a table shaped like a camel…?)

Newplace!

I am currently in the process of moving out. This is a Big Deal for me.

I have never lived alone, or even away from my family. If my parents hadn’t upped and left the country for warmer climes a few years ago, I’d probably still live with them. As it is, I live with my sister. I LOVE living with my sister- she’s my best friend and an amazing cook, it’s kind of a no-brainer. However, now that I am getting *ahem* older, I have decided that I should at least try and go it alone for a bit (Spoiler alert-this is less dramatic than it sounds, I am moving 10 minutes down the road). I am simultaneously excited and terrified. (What will I eat?!)

Unfortunately all this moving has put a serious spanner in my blogging! Not for want of inspiration, but simply because every time I sit down to blog I find myself thinking “this time would be better spent researching integrated washer dryers” and I somehow distract myself from the task at hand, despite the fact that researching integrated washer dryers is exactly as boring as it sounds. But I miss blogging! And my sister and boyfriend may kill me if I don’t manage to find at least 5 minutes a day where I’m not thinking/talking/googling/monologuing incessantly/all of the above about cabinets. Seriously, it’s that bad. I have little dancing household appliances can-canning across my brain ALL DAY. It’s like Fantasia with furniture.

So, I’m going to try and blog a bit more, as I’m not quite ready to relinquish my grip on sanity just yet.

That said, if this blog takes a turn away from from fashion and towards decor, go easy on me – I’m only human!

Hope everyone’s having a good week, and Happy Autumn! 🙂

Love,
