New Home Buys – January

Now the Christmas decorations have come down it was feeling very bare around here, so of course I had to get some new home accessories! Home accessory shopping is my favourite kind of shopping!


I started with the upstairs hallway – the glass candlesticks and flowers were added to replace the garland, as well as hanging hearts on the bannisters (3 in total at each end post).

This gorgeous light box frame will replace my Christmas with the Rackleys one for year round display – I love these boxes so much, the text is foil so reflects light around and I love anything that lights up!

Mr Rackley came back with this lovely lantern tonight  – I’m still trying to decide if I want another on the other side so will probably get it to try and then decide – yes I know I have a problem with having things symmetrical haha!

This stunning little occasional chair has replaced my Christmas tree – tomorrow I’m going to paint the legs to match the room, dark wood is just not for me! It’s made of a soft chenille/velvet type fabric and feels lovely!

UPDATE – The legs have been painted and match the room so much better now. I used a rust-oleum multi purpose paint in heirloom white from wilko – Link

UPDATE – I bought this lovely cream cushion for this chair which happened to perfectly match the painted legs 🙂 They no longer have cream ones left for now but here are some other colours:

The nest tables we’ve had for years but they’ve lived behind hidden behind the sofas so far, so i’ll share the link for those again:

I searched for hours looking for a personalised mug that wasn’t just a plain mug and finally came across this one – love the heart handle! It’s actually advertised as a wedding mug but I asked for it to be personalised to the above and they were brilliant!

This rose gold candle is my second order from MadeByYasmin and smells as good as it looks! I went for coconut and vanilla this time, which is so strong and sweet, even Mr Rackley commented on how good is smelt – result! My first one was a Christmas one in strudel and spice which smelt good enough to eat! They have lots of different styles and scents, looking forward to choosing my next one 🙂

As promised when I first published this post, here is the beautiful year round lights replacing my Christmas star lights! I loved having those star lights in the window over Christmas, it added a cosy glow to the room and made a beautiful feature of our big patio doors. I knew I had to find something else to put there and you may have already guessed I love anything with hearts on so these were perfect!

A close up of the twinkly hearts – they have 8 functions too!

Not strictly a home purchase but these seemed to be popular!

I loved my star glass bowl so much, I had to find a heart one, perfect for treats in front of the TV!

I ordered these micro lights to light my fireplace lanterns and they’re perfect with a tiny battery pack! Also a total bargain!

Lots of love

  1. Your home is absolutely stunning. You have such lovely taste. I just wondered if your silver bedroom throw was bulky and big? I would be trying to pack it in my suitcase to take home to the US. Thank you for sharing your style and inspiration!

  2. Gorgeous home. Definetely going to try those recipes out. Since I’ve followed your insta page iv started doing our weekly shop in aldi and we’ve thoroughly been enjoying the food. A clean organised house equals a happy house. Xx
