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

desk lampI 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

Tea tinI 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

MT ThrowWe desperately need some throws for our sofa to help protect them from Poppy’s paws. I love this throw from Melin Tregwynt, but it’s far too pretty to have muddy paws walk all over it!

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!
