My new abstract/print covered/peony filled abode.


It's been 2 months since I moved into my own place, I still love it and now it's got all the little touches to make it more homely. Making the most of the opportunity to decorate with as many oddities as I like - I invested in some vintage fish pictures from Ikea, cake stands to hold fruit or jewellery and I mixed the art-deco prints with bright crochet rugs for colour.

I got some great rugs from The Range and Urban Outfitters. A lot of my candles, cushions and bathroom bits are from H&M home too - which turned out to be my favourite shopping spot. The quality is much better than I expected as it's reasonable. Another purchase (which wasn't so reasonably priced) was a Tipee for Lola from Not on the High Street. With all the house moves I thought a treat was in order, it fits in with the decor and she seems to like it but...it's quite pricey for something I probably could have made myself if I had the motivation (and a sewing machine).

Another spot for good household bits are supermarkets (though this can be a bit hit and miss), an abstract frame from Sainsburys and a retro glass vase from Tesco were little gems. Pictures below, with a bit of Dachshund activity thrown in...
