It only seems like yesterday that I bought a new TV stand and coffee table for my living room (having only bought the old ones less than 6 months ago…whoops!). Already, there are so many things on my home wish list that I want to add to my house.
Liam and I moved into our first proper ‘house’ together 9 months ago and we have been a little slow on the uptake getting really nice furniture and making it our own. A month or so ago, we found ourselves with wooden floors, a wooden coffee table, a wooden dining table AND a wooden TV cabinet! It was a little too much wood and we decided we needed to shake things up a bit.
On my current home wish list is…
…cushions! I have been after some nice cushions to go with my bedding for ages. My current linen is blue and white and I find it difficult to find shades that don’t clash.
This IKEA SMANATE cushion is not only the perfect neutral colour, but it is also ridiculously cheap at only £4. I am also a fan of the SNABBVINGE cushions, which I think would look amazing, propped up on the chairs at my dining table.
The second thing on my list is new bedding. As I mentioned above, my bedding is a bit of an awkward colour when it comes to cushions but I have managed to tailor my ornaments to match the blue. We even have a Gromit Unleashed china figurine that matches the bedroom colours! This IKEA VINTER 2014 grey and white bedding would be a perfect second set, it wouldn’t look out of place next to the blue colour scheme of the room. With a lovely white throw on top, I think it would look really slick.
Talking of throws, my next wish list item is exactly that. It is getting so cold in our house now that the winter is setting in and we definitely need some more warmth without turning on the heating throughout the night! This simple white throw is only £15 but will go with anything.
The next thing we desperately need is a side table in the living room to place a big lamp on. Our living room doesn’t let a lot of light in so it can often seem a bit dingy, even in the middle of the day.
I spotted this MUSKEN Ikea table that has a cute little door with some storage space for £25 and I think this would look fab sat in the corner.
The next item on my wish list is this gorgeous Made.com turquoise desk lamp which I want to place in the living room to brighten it up a bit. The turquoise would be a great pop of colour to our somewhat neutral living room and the lamp would mean we can have some subtle lighting in the evening without putting the main lights on. I absolutely love this lamp!
Finally, we recently sold our rug as it didn’t really go with our new glass coffee table. We have wooden floors and a brown sofa, so our rug needs to be a lighter colour to stand out. I found these gorgeous rugs on Made.com which would be absolutely perfect. They are flat woven rugs, so they would be easy to hoover and clean. They are so pretty and I think they could transform the room.
Hopefully we will be able to add some of these items to our home very soon! Do you have a home wish list? What is on yours?
