Regular readers will know that my OH & I are planning a few home improvements. I love going to shops & looking around at the different pieces of furniture & imagining how they would look in our home. One of my favourite places to go is John Lewis. This is because they have everything I could possibly want under one roof: stationery, furniture, bed linen & cake. What’s not to love about that?!
We recently visited our local John Lewis & had a look at some of their new collections. Here’s a round up of some of the things I’d really, really like.
Penelope Task Lamp
I need a new desk lamp, desperately. I’ve had the same paper Ikea one since I was in uni, which, sadly, was quite a long time ago now. We saw these lamps in the store and I think it would really look great on my desk. I love the vintage style and really like the duck egg blue colour.
The Sixty One Armchair
We’re in desperate need of a new armchair & I really like the idea of owning something with a retro feel but modern comfort. I also really like the mustard colour of this chair and as our lounge is painted a neutral colour & has a grey sofa, I think this would work really well.
Wayne Hemmingway Tea Storage Tin
I was given some Cath Kidston storage jars a number of years ago. Sadly, they’ve not fared well & need replacing. I want this! I love the whole range by Wayne Hemmingway & think they’d work really well in our kitchen… when we finish it!
Melin Tregwynt St David’s Cross Throw
Orla Kiely Rhododendron Duvet Cover
I am a huge Orla Kiely fan & would love to have a new duvet cover. I really like this pattern & the colours in it. We’re starting to plan the redecoration of our bedroom, so I’m on the look out for colours, furniture & furnishings to help give me inspiration. This duvet cover definitely hits the spot!
Stride 4 Drawer Chest
Our bedroom furniture is dreadful. It’s the only room we haven’t put much thought into & we hate it! I’ve been looking through the different ranges in John Lewis and can’t decide between the Downton range or the Stride range. We need a new chest of drawers, wardrobes & bed, as well as a lot of elbow grease to get the wood chip off the walls. Yep. Wood chip *shudders*
Lotta Jansdotter Ranka Scented Candle Jar
How cute is this candle? In my opinion, you can never have too many candles & one thing I’m aware of since having Poppy is that I don’t want the house to smell too much of ‘dog’! So I’m on the look out for scented candles & I love this one. (Did I mention I have a birthday coming up?!)
There is something very satisfying about redecorating, getting jobs done & planning on different things to put in your home. We’ve got a few jobs that we hope to achieve this summer so I’ll make sure to update on all our achievements!
