New Flat - Homeware Inspo

If you follow me on social media or have read my latest Sunday Brunch post, you will probably already know that I recently moved into a new flat in London with two friends. I've always loved looking at homeware and interior designs, but since we decided to make this move I have become more and more obsessed with reading homeware blog posts and scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest for decor inspiration.

Once I have added a few final touches to my new room I am going to do a room tour post, but for now, here some homeware items that I have spotted over the last couple of weeks. Apologies in advance for any threats this poses to your bank balance...

1. ASOS Contrast Stripe Pyjama Set - £20

There's no better feeling than climbing into bed with a fresh set of sheets and a new pair of matching pyjamas. In this sudden burst of summer weather we've been having, short pyjamas are a necessity. Or at least, that's what my excuse will be.

2. ASOS Brushed Stripe Pyjama Set - £28

And of course, with Autumn fast approaching, I need to be prepared for all kinds of weather...

3. Urban Outfitters Scrabble Fairy Lights - £25

Fairy lights turn a room from nice to cosy with the flick of a switch, and for an English graduate it doesn't much better than Scrabble-themed homeware.

4. Oliver Bonas Gold Hexagon Mirror - £35

This is one item on my list that I'm definitely going to be purchasing. Having an Oliver Bonas so close to where I work is a dangerous game.

5. John Lewis Enamel Tea Canister - £7.50

Nine times out of ten, my drink of choice is a big cup of tea, and I love the simplicity of this particular container.

6. Simple: Effortless Food, Big Flavours - Diana Henry - £17

Now that I've moved out and am cooking for myself again, I'm trying to be a bit more adventurous with cooking, but anything with 'effortless' in the title sells it for me!

7. Oliver Bonas Block Striped Cushion - £32

As my room is fairly small, I opted for all white furniture, so now it's in desperate need of a few splashes of bold colour. Oliver Bonas have a great selection of bold cushions and throws.

8. TK Maxx Bronze Bowl - £7.99

Bronze and copper items may be a blogger cliche, but this bowl would be great for mixing recipes, serving salads and eating large quantities of popcorn, of course.

9. Linea Potted Spikey Succulent - £25

I love having plants around the flat, but as my track record for keeping plants alive isn't the best, this fake plant seems like a great plan.

10. Urban Outfitters Crescent Moon Dish - £8

Urban Outfitters is one of my go-to shops for homeware inspiration, and you only need to look at their Instagram feed to see why. This dish is ideal for storing rings and other small bits and pieces that are easy to lose.

11. Urban Outfitters Stoneware Mug - £9

You can never have too many mugs. That's a fact.

12&13. Anthropologie Dog Plates - £14

I must have been living under a rock, because I only discovered Anthropologie a few weeks ago. And I'm already obsessed.

14. Byron: The Cookbook - £10

Byron is potentially my favourite burger restaurant, so just imagine being able to eat one of their burgers without even having to change out of your pyjamas (or ordering from Deliveroo, oops).

I would love to know what your favourite homeware stores are or where you go for inspiration - let me know in the comments!
