Items I Love | The Home Edit

1. ‘In a gentle way, you can shake the world’ – Ghandi

2. Lotus flower framed print.

Both from Desenio

I really love lotus flower prints, mainly because they are associated with Buddhism. “In Buddhist symbolism the lotus is symbolic of purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire.”


3. Sonos speaker (Josh just bought it and I love it! It’s so loud too)

4. Ladder shelving.

5. Cement plant pot from Next.


6 & 7. Bedside tables

Both in mango wood and from


8. Floor mirror.

9. Porcelain hurricane.

Both from Westelm, love their site! There are some lovely pieces.


Hey there! My gran is currently packing for her summer vacay to France whilst Josh and I are planning a little revamp of her bedroom and ours as a surprise for when she returns. Obviously the pieces above aren’t important yet because we have lots and lots of work to do before hand but I can’t help myself but dream of all the beautiful things I can decorate the flat with! It’s going to be a chaotic 3 weeks, with us both still working full time, trying to get new door casings in, a plasterer, new lighting, carpets, painted walls etc. etc. but I’m so excited to start work at long last! I’ll be documenting it all as always here on my blog but I’m also going to keep a little video diary that I will upload at the end of the month! For anyone that knows my gran, please don’t mention any of this to her because we really want to surprise her and if anyone has any advice or renovation projects of their own please leave me a comment because I’d love to see your transformations! Talk again soon, L.
