My Top 5 Stores for Fabulous Home Accessories

Posted on June 17, 2018

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a lovely Father’s Day whatever you’re up to 🙂

I’m currently embarking on a bit of a mission to make over my house – I’m working room by room and planning on upgrading some furniture, painting walls, accessorising, basically just revamping and making my house finally look like my home. My main problem is I’m quite fussy when it comes to things I like, and I’ve spent more time that I’d like to admit scouring the internet for fabulous bits and bobs that I love – so I thought I’d put together a list of my top five online home accessory stores and tell you exactly why I love them!

If you’re a fan of designer labels and high end, luxury products, Amara is an essential site for your home accessory needs. Initially starting life as an interior design business, Amara now houses over 300 of the world’s most luxurious home fashion brands, including Ralph Lauren Home, Versace Home, Missoni Home, Fornasetti, Jonathan Adler, Alessi and many more.

Amara really does stock the most coveted luxury brands, and I’ve included their fabulous products on the blog quite a few times already. A couple of my favourite products have to be my Fornasetti Candle and Seletti Mouse Lamp. They also currently have a massive up to 50% off sale on at the moment too, so be sure to check that out!

Next, I had to include Rockett St George. I remember when I first came across the site probably about five years ago, and I was completely wowed by their stunningly eclectic selection of products. Rockett St George’s Ethos is to ‘revitalise the interiors market with unique treasures, oddities, and curiosities … breaking free from chain store offerings, by sourcing unique, authentic and quirky pieces bursting with individuality’.

To this day, the founders of Rockett St George continue to treasure hunt across the world in search of unique, glamorous, eclectic, witty and rock ‘n’ roll home accessories, furniture, lighting, kitchenware, art and gifts that you cannot find elsewhere – and this is why I love them!

Graham & Green is another fantastic site, offering products to die for as well as amazing inspiration for your own interiors. Their style is actually quite similar to Rockett St George, again offering an eclectic mix of vintage inspiration, contemporary style and fabulous finds from around the globe. I absolutely love this octopus cande stick!

I also had to include Wayfair – did you know that they offer one of the world’s largest online selections of furniture, home furnishings, décor and goods, including more than ten million products from over 10,000 suppliers! I love shopping at Wayfair just because you never know what gems you’re going to discover. There’s no set style or look here, Wayfair really does offer a bit of everything, to suit pretty much all tastes, whilst covering a massive price range too. I also wanted to mention Groupon, which you’ve probably heard of by now, it’s definitely worth checking out their latest deals for Wayfair, which include daily deals, upcoming sales, discount codes and much more. I’ve recently been browsing the Home & Garden section on Groupon and they really do have some excellent deals on right now!

And lastly, Urban Outfitters. Did you know they’ve been around since 1970? I love Urban Outfitters hipster chic style, their home accessories and gifts are always kitsch, quirky and fun – my only niggle being their US site always has so many more products available than the UK site, however I have found some pretty cool bits and bobs at UO UK. I’ve recently picked up some awesome cushions, mugs and wall art which will be coming up on the blog very soon!

I’d love to hear which online stores you love for home furniture and accessories?

A Little Home Wish List…

Posted on March 4, 2015

Hi Guys!

So now I’ve really nearly finished my new office – I’ve got the furniture, I’ve got everything pretty much organised, I just need to tidy up and add a few finishing touches to the decor. This has got me thinking about the rest of my house, and now I’ve got the decorating, re-vamping and updating bug! I keep looking online for inspiration, thinking about what I want to change, upgrade and improve, and as I’ve been making my mental notes I’ve noticed everything has fallen into two categories: practical – for those necessary items that you need but aren’t much to look at, and pretty – for the decorative, not actually necessary things.

So I’ve put together a little wish list, a kind of if I won the lottery type thing, of practical and pretty things I’d really love to have in my home…

Ok so let’s start with the kitchen, there are SO many problems with the kitchen! The dishwasher has broken, so we’re now using it for storage, yes our house is so small we’re actually using the dishwasher to keep things in. Storage is a very real issue. So a new dishwasher would be nice, and the washing machine is also on it’s last legs, so a shiny new Panasonic washing machine would be lovely – preferably one that’s a dryer too? Because of course, we have no space or a dryer, gah.

I’d like a nice storage cabinet to go in the corner of the room – maybe the Hemnes Cabinet from Ikea, to stop the kitchen table being a dumping ground for junk. The kitchen really stresses me out so I’ll move on to the living room now… My fancy Habitat sofa cushions are knackered from people sleeping on the sofa, so I’d really like some nice new ones, I’m in love with this Cat Face Cushion and Yeah Yeah Yeah Cushion from Urban Outfitters, and while I was checking out their site I also noticed this awesome Zig Zag Rug which would be perfect in the living room, as my current rug is covered in marks. Oh and our lovely white Coffee Table has chip marks all around the edges from Fred pulling himself up and chewing it as a baby, so I’d quite like a new one of them too!

Going upstairs I’d really love some pictures on the walls, my problem is I can’t commit to where to put things, because once something is up, you then have to plan everything else around it, so basically that’s why I haven’t got any pictures up. Which reminds me, I still haven’t had our wedding photos printed – oops! If you know me you’ll know that Rockett St George is one of my favourite homewares stores, and I can’t get over these Horizon and Palm Trees art prints – one day they will be mine! I’m also kind of lacking in ceiling lampshades… there’s only two of them in the whole house because I just didn’t get round to finding any more I liked. I’m rather partial to IKEA Lampshade though and this Fillsta one has caught my eye recently. For our bedroom, I can’t get enough of bright and loud prints, and this Vance Duvet set jumped out at me, it’s really expensive but I think I NEED it! And lastly I’d really like a book case for Fred’s room, as his books are just in a massive pile in the living room at the moment, this Kidikraft Bookshelf would be perfect for him.

Do you create lust lists like I do? And spend your time window shopping and fantasising about your dream home!? I hope you enjoyed my post 🙂 xxx
