Snippets Of Our Lounge.
So, let me introduce you to our first big furniture buy, It’s this beau-tiful West Elm side board… I do just have to quickly say, you’re gonna be hearing that name a lot! West Elm to me, is homeware perfection…. and as you’ll see in this post, mostly all of our new larger pieces are from West Elm. They are the dream.
ANYWAY. We actually keep all our plates, bowls and serving bits in this piece, it’s the perfect size, i.e HUGE but still looks pretty, and although our lovely Perch and Parrow mirror no longer has a beautiful mantel piece to sit above, I think this sideboard is definitely JUST as fitting.
The baskets either side of the sideboard are H&M, my other homeware love… They always have the most amazing affordable pieces, which look incredible. H&M is somewhere I go to for all thing’s “bits”… whether it’s a jug, serving spoons, or new planters, ohhhh so many planters. They’re homeware is just gorge.
The planters, now these beauts are something special, West Elm again ( I told you I wasn’t exaggerating!) we actually have four of these babies! As a crazy plant lady, the minute I saw these I just knew I needed them in my life, and in every room, obviously… They are hugeeee, and feel like proper statement pieces, but most importantly fit the massive plants we’ve always lusted over! Perfect space fillers and green adders, I absolutely love them.
The little side table is however is another West Elm number, and was definitely not meant to go here but it was one of those situations where you place it down for a second and then step back to be like “oh…OH,I LOVE it! ” totally unintended but I absolutely love the way it overlaps the stand, and is perfect for a couple more pops of green… I’m not gonna go into too much plant detail right now as I do have a re-vamped plant post coming up, BUT I recently counted and we now have over fourty… LOL, so keep your eyes peeled!
For a start it’s made me buy nicer alcohol which only means one thing….snazzier cocktails (woohoo) and it’s just the perfectttt size to fill this lil space. We popped one of my fave prints from Unlimited onto an Ikea photo shelf (four quid – BARGAIN) and added a couple of glasses, plants and obvs a cocktail shaker, and voillla (!!) ready for all your entertaining needs. Love it!
