A new house in the Lakes

New house and home decor haul

For such a peaceful setting it’s felt so crazy, rushing to cram in bed frames, flooring, painting new walls. I still can’t get my head around that it’s our own first home, it feels like we are staying in a holiday home! With

Oscar’s space under construction, here is a look at our room aka new pink cave and some pretty home buys.

The paint we chose was shade ‘Fairy cake’ by Colours at B&Q, the bed frame and dressing table both from IKEA and I received the fairy lights for my birthday from my sister! I am so grateful to Mitch’s parents for helping us put it all together. On my dressing table I have a few new bits and bobs I picked up in town…

This mug from New Look is so gorgeous, I was in love at first sight. I originally ummed and ahhed over them for so long, before deciding I couldn’t spare the cash for mugs at that moment. I instantly regretted it.

They had sold out online at that point so I ended up back in store for them! I love the pastel bohemian design and the picture doesn’t do it justice but it is of the most beautiful beige hue with dusky pink accents. They retail at £6.99 each and are so worth it! They are huge and I am currently using one as a trinket dish.

This candle from Asda George is of such an amazing size and I love the frosted glass. I was gifted this by Mitch’s parents for my birthday and it smells like sweet, delicate, milky coconut, a reminder of summer.

I finally got her! I treated myself to Funko Voyager Moana as an early birthday present after finding her on ebay, a birthday treat to me from me. I’m so happy she’s my first one and I can’t wait to collect more!

I have managed to cart over all my favourite pillows, including this rose gold number from Primark and the adorable caticorn bedding I featured here. I’m so happy to have found my dream headboard in IKEA’s Hemnes frame, I can’t stop staring at it. It’s perfect to wind fairy lights around to create the perfect cosy atmosphere.

I found this pretty little tin of tea bags in TK Maxx for only £3. It has a tiny dent in it so I bought it reduced and it is adorned all over with Beatrix Potter’s little characters, like Mrs Tiggywinkle. So darling!

The houses here are like doll houses, they are so beautifully kept. See the fells in the distance coated in pre autumnal mist. It makes me so happy to think we can have our own front door I can paint, grow roses around!

My bedroom window leans out over the fields and Bluebell woods, the perfect place to spot deer grazing and frolicking. There is even a beck bubbling nearby; I feel right at home, it is almost like my Grandma’s garden!

    Aww how exciting, your new home is so pretty and homely. I can already see your signature style through the photos captured. The pink and lilac tones are beautiful. Because of the colour palette it reminded me when I got my bedroom decorated, we have similar style I would say. A pleasure to read your post as always, and take care. 🙂 Xx
