It's not a day for interior design, but as it's month end I've done all the financials for F-Stop I need to do and so I'm on to tell you about the items I've purchased this week for my living room.
If you know me well enough, you'll know I have a penchant for shiny things - metals, glass, precious stones (mmmm....), if it's reflective than I can pretty much guarantee that I will like it. If you are up for a challenge then feel free to prove me wrong.
Ebay shopping is one of my regular addictions, I'm forever on the lookout for furniture pieces - tables, chairs, lights, china, glassware and any unique find that catches my eye. In the past I've bought items such as canvas paintings, plate chargers, glasses, crockery, fabric, chairs, a desk, but my latest find is a copper topped side table, costing just a tad more than my favourite soya latte from Starbucks.
For my second shiny find, something I've had my eye on for a couple of weeks and it's from one of my favourite online stores - Rockett St George. This wall sconce will feature nicely in my dark inky living room alcove and it's a great price too. I have a lot of candles, this will be the sixth one in the living room, they create such a warm cosy ambience, much nicer than low energy light bulbs.
So I must get the painting finished this weekend and then it's on to the exciting stuff; placing furniture and choosing new soft furnishings.
