We have been in our brand new home for nearly 2 years now and I’ve only just started to feel like we are getting somewhere with the decorating. It seems to have taken forever because I have been very fussy about what I wanted in each room. I have taken my time over finding exactly what I was looking for and at the right price! I always like to search around for the best deals for anything I buy including home accessories and decorating products.
I have recently come across a fantastic site called Lions Home.
‘With Lions Home you can find beautiful furniture and home accessories from top brands at great prices in more than 100 shops’.
The site is great for searching around for deals on the products you want. You just add in the item you are looking for in the search box and it brings up a selection for you from lots of different stores. It’s a really easy site to use and saves you time by finding the products for you. You also have the ability to change the search to price ascending or descending depending on your needs and budget.
Industrial Vintage Kitchen
Each room in our house has a different style or theme to it. I find I change my mind a lot so it helps to have lots of different styles going on. I’m definitely not one of these people that has one style throughout the whole house. One of the rooms I have been focusing on recently is our kitchen/breakfast room. I have gone for an industrial vintage look. I’m definitely not finished in there yet but it’s slowly starting to come together.
My next big purchase for the room will hopefully be some 1950’s style Tolix Chairs I just can’t decide whether to get them all in one colour or mix and match. I have found some on the Lion’s Home site for £48 which are from Amazon and I need 3 in total.
I think these chairs will finish the room off nicely and add a nice pop of colour. At the moment we currently have brown faux leather chairs which don’t match and drives me insane! I’m weird like that.
Here’s few snaps of the kitchen at the moment.
I really need to get a blind up here as the neighbours have great fun gawping through the window when it gets dark. The joys of living in suburbia. I’d like to go for a mint coloured roller blind.
I love our Cornishman sign that my Dad got for the other half, apparently it’s from a train and he found it in an antique shop.
We spent ages looking for the right light fittings to go in the room. The one pictured above was from B&Q and the freestanding lamp below was from Dunelm Mill in the sale.
Our Cornishware collection is coming along nicely now, it takes pride of place on my shelving unit. Next I’d like to get the mugs but they are around £7 each which is quite a lot for mugs so I think I’ll hold off on them for a while.
I love our vintage bread bin which the other half found at a second hand market. I believe that he only paid £10 for it which was a bargain as it’s very heavy and solid.
My Aloe Vera plant has gone a bit nuts but it’s great to have in the kitchen for burns.
I keep all of our hard veg and fruit in this veg rack which again the other half found on his travels. Although the bottom section is currently filled with leftover booze from Christmas!
My most favourite thing to look at in the kitchen though is my tea cabinet, which I am very proud of. I love tea so I like to have a good selection of different blends.
So that is our kitchen so far, now just I’ve just got to keep an eye out for my Tolix chairs and a new blind.
