New Home Decoration & Inspiration

Tuesday, 20 October 2015


I had been wanting to update our kitchen for some time. It was nice, don't get me wrong, but I felt like it needed a bit of new life to be breathed into it. so this weekend Dan and I went shopping and chose some lovely pieces to revamp it with!
I love to decorate the home, it really makes it feel like your own when you put your personal stamp on it and I was really taken by a copper and black theme and, luckily, Dan agreed! So we set out on our shopping trip, and we ended up finding some perfect pieces!


Dan loves to drink coffee, but I don't, so this Copper effect Cafetiere is perfect as its just the right size for one (large!) cup of coffee! Although I'm not a coffee lover myself, I do love the smell of Dans Vanilla coffee brewing in the morning.
I loathe having papers lying around everywhere so this copper letter rack was the perfect solution! It's neat and tidy and matches with the theme, so we had to have it!
Our old kettle had an exploding incident recently, so it was really time to get a new one and I was taken by this pyramid kettle and 4 slice toaster set - they were absolute bargains and look so lovely on our worktops!
This salt and pepper set is just perfect and fits in so well with the theme, they look lovely alongside our new copper effect canisters!
I like to have utensils hanging up under our cabinets and this copper ladle, slotted spoon, spoon and masher look fantastic on display.
We decided to get a new dinner set and mugs to match the theme and these black ones are so cool, Dan has always wanted black crockery and I finally agree with him that they are actually, very stylish!
To go with the new crockery set we had to have new cutlery, and these copper effect ones are perfect! We were kindly given a £30 Next giftcard for a wedding gift so we only ended up paying £2 for them!
And to keep things neat and tidy around the sink, we decided to invest in this black drainer too!
We also picked up a new black washing machine in the Argos sale for £179, and I cant wait for it to be delivered and installed!

I am so pleased with how everything looks, its so refreshing to have some new pieces in the home and it all looks very warm and stylish. Now my mind is wandering to how we could bring some new life to our bedroom!



Although Dan isn't much of a fan of seasonal homeware, I really love this orange check bedset, it looks so warm and cosy and I know that it would bring some much needed colour to our room. Finished off with a few of these chocolate cord cushions and this orange fleecey throw I think it would look gorgeous and so inviting!
I also thought these copper filament lamps would look amazing on our nightstands as they would really make a feature piece - the only trouble is that the filament bulbs aren't included and they can be quite pricey!
For a more natural and neutral look, I am loving this scattered tree bedset, I think it would look amazing when paired with these Wolf faux fur cushions and throw! I would never want to get out of my bed!
To decorate the room I love these mini animal heads! Our bedroom is up in the roof of the house so we dont have a lot of wall space, and I think the miniature size of these heads would work well to our advantage! I also think this golden pheasant ornament would look stunning on the windowsill - just look at its tail feathers!

What is your dream home style?
