Homeware Wishlist

I haven't done a wishlist post for a while now, and although I have about 12034853 clothing items I could do a fashion wishlist post about, I thought I was due a homeware post. Since having my own place, homeware is definitely one of my favourite things to buy, and I spend about 75% of my time online trawling through homeware sites in the hope I'll find some fab new pieces to make my humble abode all the more 'me'. Also, I've noticed since moving house that my tastes have started growing up somewhat - I'm less about all-the-things-everywhere and more about subtle touches and minimalism. So, I thought I'd run through some of the bits I've currently got my eye on, and hopefully it will give you some homeware inspiration too...

1. Hanging half moon planter - Urban Outfitters
One thing my house is really lacking right now is hanging planters, and I just feel like I need at least one hanging about the place to make it feel a bit more chic. This copper half moon one from Urban Outfitters is seriously cute and a steal at £15 - need!

2. Geometric print - Etsy
I've been after a pastel/grey geometric print like this for ages and finally found one on Etsy. It annoyingly doesn't come framed, but for just over a tenner for an A4 print I don't think it's bad going - I imagine similar in Urban Outfitters would be a lot more.

3. Add-on desk unit - Ikea
How cute is this?! It's supposed to go with the matching pastel pink desk, but I actually think this works really well as a unit on its own. It would look fab on a dressing table with makeup bits and perfumes lined up, or it would look equally good kitted out with stationery on a desk. I love it.

4. Marble chopping board - Next
I've been after a pretty marble serving board (not to actually serve things on of course, purely for aesthetic purposes) and this one from Next ticks all the boxes. It's a tad pricey at £12, but considering it's real marble (and seriously pretty) I think I can forgive that.

5. Bird floor lamp - Lamp Commerce
When I eventually get a bigger house, I picture myself having a big cosy chair in the corner of my sitting room, with a floor lamp next to it so I can read to my heart's content. I think this bird floor lamp from Lampcommerce is so nice - it's just simple and subtle enough that at first glance you probably wouldn't pick up on the fact it has a little branch! I've never seen a lamp like this before and absolutely love it.

6. Artificial peonies - TK Maxx
Peonies are a blogger's best friend, and artificial peonies even more so. I really want some in a glass vase and for £14.99 these fit the bill perfectly. Now I just need to track down some pale pink ones too!

7. Copper baskets - Sass & Belle
There are lots of copper touches throughout my house, and I've become a bit obsessed with finding copper storage baskets. This set is really pretty and would be perfect for housing makeup bits in.

8. Flamingo cushion - TK Maxx
Have you ever seen a cuter cushion?! For £12.99 I think this cushion screams Oliver Bonas, and would look super cute sitting on my aforementioned big cosy chair. I can't get over how cheap it is - need!

What are you currently lusting after, homeware-wise? Let me know!
