Having moved into our first ever flat less than two weeks ago, Olly and I are donning overalls – paint brushes and rollers in hand – and coating our walls in various Farrow & Ball neutrals at any free moment. There have been a number of 1am finishes in an effort to eke out every spare second in the day, punctuated by a few too many unhealthy on-the-go suppers (read pizza).
In amongst the excitement, we’ve inevitably developed a newfound desire for all things homey. We’re sending each other links to sofas/ shelves/ console tables/ wardrobes/ toasters/ dog beds on a daily basis (not to mention a current penchant for all things copper) and, with the added hype of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now the first day of Advent, there are plenty of goodies I’ve been eyeing up lately. Here’s a round-up of a few under-the-tree ideas that are sure to raise a smile come the 25th.
