Home Haul - Getting Settled

About three months ago I moved into my new apartment with a real live grown up boy (EW!) and whilst we both loved what we had done to it so far we both agreed that the place needed some extra TLC to get it juuuuuust right.

Last Sunday we decided it was about time we got off our bums and did something about it and so here are the results of a little sunday shopping Haul.

The Bathroom:

I love my bathroom and I love nothing more than a nice long bath, but nothing annoys me more than when it's untidy with half empty bottles on every shelf. First of all I bought the super cute Lotions & Potions wooden box to store all of those annoying bottles for £3.99 from B&M stores. Now that my bath ledges were clear I could add some lovely decorations and I fell in love with this sign from Next home for £12, because sometimes when you're sitting in a big bowl full of bubbles with a glass of wine in hand, you just need someone or a sign to remind you it's ok to relax!


The Hallway: 

Internet is the best. It really is, it connects us, it excites us, it joins us and it educates us, but sometimes the things that bring us the internet, involve a lot of pesky boxes and wires that we'd rather not have on show. Sadly our wifi box is in the hall and leaves a lot to be desired. In stepped this gorgeous table from TK Maxx for £79.99, its small, compact and best of all from above it hides all the horrible wires and electronic things, you don't want anyone to see. 

Now being a woman I couldn't have my lovely table without a few decorations, I spend my day to day life making displays look pretty and so I couldn't bare an empty table in the hallway. I opted for this super pretty White Geranium and Jasmine fragrance diffuser from Next for £12 and these beautiful Peonies in a kitsch jar with a golden ribbon for £8. 


The Bedroom: 

The OH decided that the bedroom was a little lacklustre and whilst were waiting to frame up some prints for the lounge/diner and bedroom, we wanted to add a little more colour to the house. I absolutely adore this abstract canvas from Next for £35 as the colours match perfectly with the muted blues and greys we have going on in the bedroom. 

The Lounge: 

Finally, we got our hands on the lamp we have both been lusting after for ages. I love the shape of the legs and the muted tone of the Lampshade as it matches in perfectly with our super funky table legs. 
We've been trying to get our hands on this lamp from Homebase for £59.99 since we moved in with little luck, but on Sunday it finally came home with us and I couldn't be happier. 



I'm so pleased with all of our purchases and it just goes to show how a few little decorative items can make a building feel like a home. I feel like now we're getting more settled we're really starting to put our stamp on the place and I couldn't be happier.

I hope you've enjoyed a little insight into my apartment and how its shaping up.

Until Next Time
