Wish, Want, Need: Homeware

As the house hunt continues so does my hunt for homeware. With lots of the smaller stuff purchased and packed away in my "bottom drawer" (more like cupboard) I've started looking at some of the bigger stuff. I'm not sure if I'm going to have much more space to store it all so I'm hoping my dream house turns up soon!


One of my friends was showing me all the things she bought from the Range for her new house and I couldn't believe all the different furnishings and decor they did. I popped onto their website for a browse and the first thing that jumped out at me was the Nest of Tables. I really simple but practical item, I really want a set like this in my living room. 

As soon as I seen this George Home Toaster  I wanted to add it to my basket straight away. The colour is gorgeous, the only problem is will it match the rest of the kitchen? It's a lot more fun than a bog standard toaster. 

Another good shop for homeware is Matalan. I'm loving a lot of the grey colour scheme trends and this Heart Stool caught my eye straight away. The heart shape makes it a bit more  noticeable than the typical round foot stools. I'm not sure how convinced my boyfriend will be.

One of the storage problems that I've got at home is where I keep all of my shoes and that's going to be worse once I'm sharing with my boyfriend, especially with his collection of trainers. The Wilko Shoe racks  are quite cheap, simple and would be quite good to have near the front door. 

Another Matalan gem that put a smile on my face is this Duck Toilet Brush. Why get a plain toilet brush when you can get one in a duck shape! I wonder what Mark would say if I gave this to him as a birthday present!? 

 Last up is this Yorkshire Linen Duvet Cover Set. Yorkshire Linen has a huge range of duvet covers, with loads of different designs and I've fallen in love with this really simple embellished one. The ruffled roses are really girly but I think I'd get away with it. I might have to let Mark choose another colour and design for the spare room. At Yorkshire Linen's prices you can't really go wrong.

How long did it take for your to find your first house?
