A few weeks ago (how time flies by so fast!?) I had a rather exciting and special delivery from my most loved interior company around. My bedroom could be questioned as a second showroom I've spent that much over the last few years. Switching rooms and redecorating called for a few finishing touches, gaps to be filled and items to be replaced with prettier editions. I spent the weekend rearranging countless times before getting snap happy with my slice of Melody Maison heaven.

White Home Sweet Home Metal Jug - £11.95
Delving into the box I first pulled out this beautiful jug. I've been hunting for a french flower jug for months and this one turned out to be everything I'd imagined. The jug is made of metal and therefore very light (also Lucy proof) and perfect for both inside and out though it'll be strictly staying on my dressing table. If you've read previous room tour posts you'll know that I have two special pieces of furniture that feature hand painted birds and sweet quotes on. I absolutely love finding small items to carry on the theme with this jug doing just so. And as much as I love having fresh flowers, my eyes can't take any more irritation so I've used my pink flower posy again from MM which is as old as LW.

Two Tier Mini Cake Stand Jewellery Stand - £8.95
Second to follow was this adorable lace inspired, miniature cupcake stand. Last summer I featured my way of storing Lush products with a much larger cream stand. I eventually grew tired of cleaning up the mesh and it looking bulky on my shelf. I'm over the moon to have this little gem in its place where instead of containing my bath bombs and bubble bars, it's holding little black pots of goodness and my holy grail origins masks. Each layer's base is covered in rather than the open mesh design of my previous. If I do eventually cut down on my bubble bars then I'll revert back to the old storage idea. This stand looks great for nail polishes to, fitting A LOT of OPI polish bottles perfectly. Sold as jewellery but incredibly versatile along with being a complete bargain at only £8.95, plus free shipping.

Love Is In The Air wooden hanging love plaque - WAS £7.95 NOW £3.45
The next item is a complete bargain and will most certainly be a hit with the shabby chic fans amongst us. This wooden, hand painted sign and light grey text fits perfectly with my theme. It's replaced the old sign that was way too yellow toned to begin with. Despite being larger than my previous the sign balances well on my curtain rail pole and looks great when my rather plain curtains are drawn.

Floral Wooden Love Blocks - £8.95
Usually I only come across the standard, wooden cut out lettering's/words in home decor stores. It's a nice change to see darker, high quality wooden blocks with contrasting pastel cut outs. Each block varies in height, whether you have them tightly packed together or spaced out, they look great. There was no questions where to put the floral blocks. They immediately went to fill up my tallboy dresser top where my TV stands, as the top of the unit is black and bare compared to the rest of my white and cream pieces not to mention.

White Wooden Post Rack - WAS £8 - NOW £5.95
The last item to unwrap was this sweet, white wooden 'post' rack which I've decided not to use for letters but as part of my vanity set up that I'll be featuring fully in my next interior post. I adore the font style chosen and despite being quite petite this rack will hold A LOT of post, even heavier items without tumbling over. Again, already affordable but it's also been reduced as part of the summer sale. Lucy didn't you have a similar rack? The older rack now has a home in the spare room holding magazines, it was always too big and bulky for my set up. Lucy xx

  2. Adding finishing touches to a room is my favourite kind of thing. I have a couple of different styles of 'finishing touches' and I always rotate them depending on how I am feeling, like different candle scents.

    1. Especially when little things really don't have to cost a lot of money either, candles are a great way! I have a box in my wardrobe ready to switch up. xx
