Homeware Wishlist 2019

Tuesday, 12 February 2019

It's that time of year again where i'm planning for my next move, so I have spent hours scrolling on various websites and Pinterest boards to find inspiration for furniture and decoration. I did a Homeware Wishlist last year and you all seemed to be into homeware as much as I am, so I thought i'd chuck together another list of all the things i'm lusting over currently.

The main big purchases I need to make for my move are a bed and a sofa as my landlord owns the ones we currently use. After several trips to Ikea and changing my mind almost daily, I have finally decided on Ikea's Kopardal bed frame. At first I thought the dark metal looked a bit prison-y, but after seeing it styled in various homes on Pinterest i've decided I do actually love the simplicity and almost industrial look which fits nicely with the theme throughout the rooms. As for the sofa, anyone that's bought one knows how expensive they can be, but remember eBay and Amazon are your friend, cause i've found some proper steals. Will you be getting the most amazing quality? No, probably not, but for decorating on a budget you cannot go wrong.

Following the "industrial" theme, i'm absolutely loving cage lampshades, especially these ones from Iconic Lights. I love the simplicity of them and how they would suit any colour theme in a room. Last year I was all about all white walls and furnishings, and now i'm kind of over the clinical looking decor and am into coloured walls (albeit neutral colours), grey furnishings and lots of plants. Ikea is a great place for both artificial and real plants, and i've been eying up their faux monstera for a while now. They also do these lovely hanging plants which will look great on shelves or up on high wardrobes.

After binging Marie Kondo on Netflix I am obsessed with boxes and baskets and storing everything in a tidy and visually appealing way. Wicker baskets are great because they look nice and don't have to be hidden away in cupboards, giving you extra storage on shelves and tables. I really love this set of 3 on Amazon that i'd use to keep my everyday skincare products and general miscellaneous items.

While you may be bored of the word 'Ikea' by now, you cannot go wrong with their flatpack furniture so i'll definitely be grabbing a couple of their simple bedside tables at just £20 each. 

One of the easiest and most effective ways to change up a room is with bedding. While places like John Lewis and Laura Ashley may give you additional quality and comfort, I cannot recommend Asda enough for their extremely affordable range. Most double sets are just £12, meaning it's never been easier to chuck out all your old bed linen and have a true revamp. I absolutely love these 3 sets (geometricalpalm print, and polkadot) that all retail at £10 for a single, £12 for a double, and £14 for a king size. While some people may not be sold on supermarket bedding, I already own some from Asda and can vouch for their good quality. 

As well as those mentioned, there are so many places you can find some cute and/or practical homeware. Whether you're moving or just wanting to spruce up your current environment, a bit of organisation and small differences can make a big change. Check out Sainsburys, Sass & Belle, Dunelm, NextHomebase, RX Home, New LookH&M, Wayfair, West Elm, Matalan, Urban Outfitters and of course trusty ol' Primark, for some great pieces for your house.
