Regular readers might have noticed the increase in the number of posts talking about DIY/ homeware items and essentially me talking about how I am in the middle of trying to create my perfect living space. Since creating shelves within my flat I have gone more down a theme within my flat with rose gold being accented throughout my living room and therefore my kitchen, and gold being accented throughout my bedroom. I’ve been slowly buying new items/ replacing things within my flat and I thought I’d show you all some of the awesome little purchases I’ve made recently.
Rose Gold Hinged Magazine Rack and Marble Rose Gold Clock from Red candy
I knew I wanted a new clock as I’ve had one of those cheap coloured ones from Argos ever since I moved in four and a half years’ ago and while it matches with the red theme going on in my kitchen area I wanted something new. After browsing for what felt like forever looking for a new clock with rose gold detailing I stumbled across Red candy and fell in love with so many of their clocks. Of course, the blogger in me was drawn to this marble and rose gold effect clock and I can not wait to change over my current clock. While I was there I looked through the rest of the site and came across this hinged magazine rack. I had been looking for a magazine rack for a while as I have four magazine subscriptions and sometimes when I get the magazines they just get dotted somewhere in my flat and forgotten about so I wanted somewhere for them to live (alongside a few travel brochures I have). As it’s hinged it can open and close to the size of what’s inside and the rose gold colour beautifully matches my colour scheme. Magazine Rack / Clock
Living Room Rug From H&M Home
After a glass-related incident before Christmas, I have been without a rug on my living room floor and I really miss having something to break up the laminate flooring in the more comfortable living area of my open plan kitchen/ dining/ living room. I have seen quite a lot of rugs from H&M home but it took me a while to work out which size was right and find the perfect patterning. This was something I didn’t want to order online as I wanted to see the patterning in person and feel the material as some of the one’s I had seen were a little harsh/ scratchy feeling underfoot which isn’t what you want from a rug. After a few months’ looking I settled on this monochrome design in the smallest size which is 70 x 140cm and it fits perfectly in the area between my sofa’s. Rug
Rose Gold Sidetable And Kitchen Roll Holder From Maison Du Monde
When I first moved in I bought a cheap wooden side table from Argos which sat by the side of my other sofa and in all honesty it was always a bit too short and just didn’t look 100% right in the living room. I’d been looking for a rose gold one for ages and stumbled across this one from Maison Du Monde who are a French company and when I realised it was only about £30 I knew this was the perfect one for me. When it arrived it looked like a giant wastepaper bin as the top just slots on but I love the way it looks as it’s not too bulky but looks really nice in my living room especially as it sits quite close to my shelves which are completely rose gold themed. I also ordered a rose gold kitchen roll holder while I was there again to replace an old cheap chrome version and it looks really nice in my kitchen. Table / Kitchen Roll Holder
