I'm moving into my new flat on Sunday and I'm getting pretty excited now. I had to move back to my mum's for two weeks as my old flat and the new flat didn't overlap, so it's been a bit of a faff. In the meantime I've been gathering homeware bits together so I can make the flat homely as soon as I move in. I haven't had the best week so far, so it's been nice to keep busy.
I picked up the retro style glasses on Sunday at an independent shop in Chichester called Taste, they were pricey at £4.50 each but Simon and I both really like them (rare for us!). On Saturday we ventured to Ikea where Simon developed a real soft spot for the black and white cushion which quickly made its way into our trolley. The white throw is also from Ikea, probably not the most sensible of colours but I love it. I'll just eat my chocolate when I'm on the other side of the room.
The yellow cushion and the kitchen storage tins are from Next, their homeware is gorgeous. I actually have a yellow purse and when I went to pay for these the shop assistant clearly thought I was crazy about yellow!
The chair and stool in the last photo were taken from a skip! Originally I wanted to paint them grey and yellow (my inner yellow obsessive coming out again apparently!), but I ended up buying duck egg blue and candy pink from the Dulux made by me range. I really like how they've turned out - we'll be using them as temporary bedside tables.
I've got a few other bits but they're all packed up now and ready to go. I can't wait to just move in now!
