Gifts & Pieces: Home Interior

Gifts & Pieces Gifts & Pieces

I've a confession; I'm addicted to Pinterest and home decor websites and have been for a while. Ever since the prospect of moving house came onto the cards I have being spending a lot of my time researching new ideas in order to incorporate them into the new house. Over the last few weeks I've being keeping my eye out for little trinkets and decorations to pop into my bedroom; it's so exciting because my current bedroom hasn't been decorated for a very long time. I'd actually say it's just shy of seven years so moving out and having a brand new project to get stuck into fills me with so much excitement.

Just last week I was sent some really nice home decor items from Gifts & Pieces which is a fantastic website that stocks an array of beautiful gifts, craft items and home interior decorations which would make wonderful additions to any home. I wanted to share with you these truly lovely items whilst they're still available to buy because I won't be decorating properly and displaying them in their correct places until around two months' time; we need to move in and get ourselves sorted first so I think that will be quite chaotic for a few weeks.

The Elsie Rustic White Hanging Heart* is an item that I have in mind for one of two places, it will either be going on the inside of my bedroom door or I'll be attaching it to my bookcase somehow to add a little bit of decoration to it. I think it's extremely pretty and definitely sways on the more shabby chic kind of style which has been one that I have admired for an extremely long time. The rustic feel to this makes me feel of the countryside, the somewhat unfinished appearance and the colour of it makes it ideal for the type of interior I'm aiming for.

Whilst I adore wearing jewellery I can be pretty bad at keeping track of where I put it down, particularly when it comes to earrings. They're so tiny and are so easily lost in my experience therefore the Fine Feathers Ceramic Trinket Box* has been ideal to keep my earrings in along with my rings which I also have a tendency to take off before bed and then forget to pop back on in the morning.

Being a true Brit I love nothing more than my cup of tea in the morning however I felt that the Polka Dot Monogrammed Mug* was just too pretty to risk being bashed around in the kitchen so have decided for now to use it as a means of storing a few things. I'm thinking a few of my most favourite make up brushes or perhaps even paint brushes if I ever get around to picking them up again. The fact that this is a little more personal with my initial on is something I really like; I'm really considering picking up one for my sister soon as she really liked this too.

I'll be back with a few more pictures of these items once they're all in place. I'm looking forward to sharing off some of my home DIY once I get started, move over make up, it's time for paint, overalls and a hammer!

  9. That mug is so beautiful! Definitely makes a lovely decor piece. I'm obsessed with small bowls and things to store everyday jewellery. I always forget to put them back where they belong after wearing as well so it's great to have it all in one place!

  10. I know what you mean by being scared to break the mug. I use mine for drinking tea at the desk when I'm blogging only. I don't think it can handle everyday use lol
