I love a good poke around other people’s homes so now I’m pretty much settled in my new house I thought I’d give you a little tour of my room! It’s tricky to personalise rented accommodation and furnished properties usually contain a mish-mash of landlords’ old rejects; I’ve been very fortunate in that Argos gave me some really lovely bits and pieces that’ve helped make my new place instantly feel like home.
The 8-cube storage unit is possibly my favourite piece in that it’s both practical and pretty: it’s the perfect place to keep books but I’m also using it to display some shoes and other random knick-knacks that’re too lovely and/or sentimental to be kept hidden away. It can be also be used stood-up but currently I’m opting to use it lay-down so it doubles as a seat for me to perch on while putting my shoes on – these Union Jack cushions keep my derriere comfortable!
I have a real love for old film and photography equipment so I’m also quite taken by this retro photographic lamp (with tripod floor legs) by Habitat; it’s quite the statement piece, I think you’ll agree, and gives off the perfect, cosy glow when I’m reading in bed.
