Just a few things I am currently lusting after for the house at the moment. We have nearly everything for the house but there are still some things we haven't got yet, like placemats. I am so fussy and some of them on the market are really horrible and grannyish. I spied these stag ones (1.) on the Heals website and quite fancy them so may have to order them soon. They will go in any room so will be good if we change our colour scheme in the dining room in the future. I also love all of Ferm Living's stuff which is also available at Heals. Both the bird cushion (2.) and the giant floor cushion (3.) are by Ferm Living.
I've been listening to 6 music lots lately since we finally got a working cable for the DAB radio, but the radio itself is pretty ugly so I am thinking about upgrading it soon. The radio was Scott's from about 6/7years ago and is quite big and chunky. It's a bit vain as it's still working fine (although actually, part of the antennae has broke) but I figure that since we listen to it everyday it wouldn't be an overly frivolous purchase. I do like the Cath Kidston Roberts ones, but I think they are too expensive for something with just one function, even if it is used everyday. I quite like these Pure Evoke ones (4.) which come in a few different colours but this teal would match our dining room perfectly. There is also a gorgeous Orla Kiely print one but that is £20 extra. Does anyone have any recommendations of really good but pretty radios?
I am also still on the look out for the perfect rug for the bedroom. I really like this one (5.) by Conran for M&S, the colours would match perfectly. But I am not sure if I want a rug that will inject some pattern into the room as it is quite stark & bare already as it is. I also want a new throw for on the bed to replace the old brown ikea we've had for years. I quite like the look of this pom pom one (6.) by Heals.
We are also hoping to get out in the back yard and sort it out soon if the weather improves.We haven't had any snow in Liverpool but we have had lots of frost & ice so we haven't got out in the garden yet to do anything, but we have been thinking. Scott has grand plans for a raised flower bed and a trellis against the wall, but I am more interested in finding a nice table & chairs and bbq so we can host bbqs and garden parties in the summer. This table & chair set (7.) is currently reduced to £49! I guess winter is a good time to buy garden furniture. However I'm not sure it would be big enough for if we had friends around.
And finally, I always, always, always want more Le Creuset (8.). I currently have 1 small cast iron casserole, 1 stone casserole and 1 stoneware rectangular dish, but I want more cast iron things as they are so practical. You can fry things on the hob then just pop them in the oven. They are also so easy to clean. I want a whole rainbow of Le Creuset!
